Newark Official Pleads Guilty to Bribery

This week’s NJ corruption scandal follows the money to City Council President Mildred Crump’s former chief of staff, Keith O. Reid.

He was accused of accepting $10,000 in bribes from a fake insurance agency set up by federal authorities to insure municipal contracts. Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Gramiccioni, one of the attorneys who handled the case, said Reid approached the state about a plea bargain on Friday.”

In court, Judge William Walls asked Reid if he had enough time over the weekend to consider the guilty plea.

“I had a sleepless weekend,” Reid replied.

Funny how a pending bribery conviction will do that.
