Suarez Acquitted on Corruption Charges

Breaking: Ridgefield, NJ mayor Anthony Suarez was acquitted on federal corruption charges today. The jury believed Suarez, who testified in his own defense (good for him! Guts win out!), over notorious admitted felon Solomon Dwek. This investigation was launched under the stewardship of then-U.S. Attorney Chris Christie (a/k/a the next President of the United States), who had no apparent qualms in using a very suspect, tarnished, admitted criminal as an informant (or embellisher) and in order to reward his "cooperation," ignoring a host of Dwek's other crimes.


This case may also be a lesson to the FBI to take much more care in handling and preserving evidence. There is still a question as to where some allegedly-missing text message records went. Those messages could well have had exculpatory evidence; in fact they might have contained evidence that could have dissuaded the grand jury or even persuaded the prosecutors to decline to pursue this particular case.


Perhaps the authorities will now become much more judicious in selecting their informants.

Note:  Suarez's co-defendant, Vincent Tabbachino, was convicted on two counts.
