Breaking Mass Arrests of New Jersey Public Officials
"Just through MSNBC at least 20 arrested including the mayors of Seacaucus and Hoboken. Preliminary reports also state a human organ transplant ring and money laundering outfit attached to the crime.
Reporting is also out showing several Rabbis being arrested. I will update this diary, or delete it entirely if a better arrives."
"Organ transplants? Could the fact that we have a broken health care system lead to a black market in actual human organs? NAAW!"
"The body parts scheme involved kidney transplants, authorities said. Patients in need would pay middle-men to find willing donors in Israel.

Officials say Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick and Johns Hopkins in Baltimore were allegedly contacted by the suspects for these procedures."
