I actually don't think that much of that greenback made it past the bribe recipients. It appears the cronies were too greedy to share the loot (except Leona Beldini - and look where that got her).

Jack Shaw had filed for bankruptcy (before comitting suicide), so he was not sharing any of the spoils. Maybe Guy Catrillo gave back some of it? (By the way, his prison stint is almost up so he'll be home for Christmas!).

Here are the potential 'donors'

?Leona Beldini, 74, of Jersey City
? Joseph Cardwell, 68, of Jersey City, NJ,
? Joseph Castagna, 53, of Jersey City, NJ,
? Guy Catrillo, 54, of Jersey City, NJ
? Edward Cheatam, 61, of Jersey City, NJ
? Maher A. Khalil, 39, of Jersey City, NJ,
? Lori Serrano, 37, of Jersey City, NJ,
? Jack Shaw, 61, of Jersey City, NJ,
? Mariano Vega, 59, of Jersey City, NJ.

Do you think Mariano shared his haul? Nah, I doubt it. Only the Treasurer (Beldini) made sure the dough got divided.

CNBC is replaying the American Greed episode on Solomon Dwek tonight at 1am. I haven't seen it yet and not sure it will mention Healy.

He would prefer to give it to charity (not that he has, evidently) because he gets political benefit from that. Returning the money to the government would generate another newspaper story that would call further attention to his complicity in felonious activities.

Thanks. The page is Dwek Jersey City corruption videos.

I don't know how to embed the Healy video, but it's pretty special. Not only is he pimping out the city for campaign contributions, but he's such a clod when doing it.

Hey this all might work out after all.


Dwek?s money?? No, it?s our money that the FBI donated to Jeremiah?s reelection campaign. Battling crime by enticing specific people to break the law is an unethical tactic that shouldn?t impress any of us, particularly when it effectively represents election tampering. I?m more interested to know why the press didn?t take the feds to task in any way over Bid Rig III.

The clip of Healy in the Med Center luncheonette meeting with Dwek used to be online, but I can't find it. Is it still up and running somewhere?

Over what period? Those are the same b.s. contributions he normally makes - over three years ago he said he'd donate that money. You telling me three years later and he still hasn't given it all back? What about the money Khalil took for him? What about the money Guarini took for him? Jack Shaw? Cardwell? You add up all of that money and it means the entire 2013 campaign is currently funded by bribes!!!

Make sure you put "Paid for by Solomon Dwek" on all your campaign literature.

Actually, I took the time to review the allegation which went from $20K to $50K according to T-Bone......now $17K per this thread and can tell you that Healy has donated exactly $16,580 to date since he made the promise to donate the money.

That calculation was only counting churches, non-political civic organizations, youth athletics, etc.

Interesting - Vega at least was forced to return his bribes. It gets more complicated with Healy - no evidence he returned the Beldini bribes ($20k?) and then how much of the Maher Kahlil $72,500 bribes flowed to Healy. Guarini? Others? If you add all these things up, Healy could be sitting on more of that bribe money than he has in his ELEC account.

"In addition to his prison sentence, U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares ordered Vega to serve two years of supervised probation and forfeit $20,000 ? the amount of the corrupt bribes that he had received at the time of his July 2009 arrest."

The prevailing wisdom is it was never returned.

Healy must go? Augie must go? Thoughts on the JJ editorial:

"Torres was so far in the tank for Louis Manzo in the recent election that it started to show, really obviously, in the days leading up to the election. I?ve been a columnist and newspaper editor, so I know how quickly people will assume your personal preferences from something you?ve written. As a blog publisher, I still get that a lot. Torres was outed a long time ago and the mayor has a point when he says the JJ?s reporting on the city (and his administration) has shown some bias, even before it became obvious that some sort of criminal enterprise was financing the mayor?s reelection campaign." More on the blog.

Almost worth signing up to speak at the next council meeting just to read this so it officially becomes part of the city record.

Editorial: 'No Comment' is Healy's middle name

[from "The Jersey Journal, September 21, 2009," 12:01 a.m.]

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy is a unique person. He does not see corruption, hears no corruption, and never speaks about corruption in his administration or among those politically associated with him.

Can anyone imagine any mayor of a major city in the country refusing to comment on the admitted bribe taking in their administration?

Healy, an attorney and former municipal judge, may be trying to pass off his silence as a noble gesture, a code among officers of the court. His no comments use the crutch of "an ongoing investigation."

The people of Jersey City have a right to hear why some people in the government of the man they elected to office seem so bent on filling their pockets and illegally financing the mayor's return to power. Is the arrogance so great that this elected official feels no need to comment on the criminal behavior of not only those on the city payroll who were caught extorting thousands of dollars but at least one person he selected to run on his ticket in May.

Friday, Ed Cheatam, a former city Housing Authority commissioner, pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to commit extortion and admitted funneling bribes to Healy's campaign war chest.

Healy would not comment except to repeat that he will give to charity any money given to anyone by an FBI informant and donated to his election campaign. Perhaps someday the mayor will tell the public which charities benefited from what are essentially federal funds, which is one reason Healy may not be able to ultimately be so charitable.

Municipal employees Maher Khalil and Guy Catrillo, who ran on the mayor's slate in May and lost, pleaded guilty earlier this month, admitting in federal court they took bribes. Healy would not comment.

Also this month, former Jersey City building inspector Randolph Condi was sentenced to 13 months in federal court for taking bribes. The mayor did not comment on the corruption. His spokeswoman's response was very clinical, and there was nothing from Healy.

City health official Joseph Castagna was among those 44 people arrested July 23 by the FBI in connection with its major corruption investigation. Castagna is also being investigated by local police for issuing too many food vendor licenses. Healy declined to comment.

He would not say anything about most of the others who worked for the city or who are politically connected to him and were handcuffed in July in the mass arrests.

Only City Council President Mariano Vega and Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini have received some words of support, not condemnation, from the mayor.

It is just one of the reasons people are demonstrating in front of City Hall demanding the resignation of Vega and Councilwoman Nidia Lopez, whose residency and right to sit as a city elected office are being challenged in court.

They are also demanding Healy step down.

Mayor, there is an insidious cancer in your administration and it is slowly killing the city. Stop pretending it does not exist, or leave office.

-- Ken Thorbourne

Will he also get a tax deduction for the donations to charity? This is so a$$ backwards.
