Peter Cammarano who was becoming comfortable again with life spending time with neighbors at the 1100 Block Party last weekend received some bad news when New Jersey ELEC whacked the former mayor and felon with a comprehensive list of 15 violations.
Cammarano was hit with the violations along with his slate and former treasurer, among them Angel Aliciea who is suing the City of Hoboken and shares an attorney with HHA Director Carmelo Garcia.
From the Star Ledger's Ted Sherman, co-author of the Jersey Sting:
Four years after his arrest in a massive federal corruption sting, former Hoboken Mayor Peter J. Cammarano was charged today with major campaign finance violations — including his acceptance of $25,000 in cash bribes.
In a 61-page civil complaint filed by the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission, Cammarano and his campaign were charged with receipt of excessive contributions and cash, as well as failure to file contribution and expenditure information, and not certifying his reports.
The former mayor and others tied to his campaign face the possibility of significant fines for the violations.
The story also names others connected to Cammarano and former slate member of Councilwoman Beth Mason:
Before his arrest, Cammarano had been an election law lawyer in New Jersey.Also named in the complaint were Vincent Addeo, Angel Alicia and Raul Morales, who had all been candidates for council running with Cammarano in the 2009 campaign, and Lucy Truglio, who served as campaign treasurer. ELEC said they face fines of up to $6,800 for each violation in the 15-count complaint.
