The Soprano State, and its Contenders

A former New Jersey Congressman, Hugh Addonizio, once explained it all. Asked why he left Washington to go back and run for mayor of New Jersey's biggest city, Newark, he said: "You can make a million bucks in Newark." That was taxpayer money he was talking about.

New Jersey has been shaken down for so long by its own political culture that the money has finally run out.
