New Jersey Democrat Caught in Ethics Violations, Steps Down

On August 10, 2006, New Jersey State Attorney General Zulima Farber told the press:

“New Jersey residents must be able to count on the fact that officials who make decisions on state contracts won’t be subject to influence by vendors who offer generous freebies.”

On August 15, 2006, New Jersey State Attorney General Zulima Farber stepped down from office for offering a generous freebie.

The Democratic Attorney General of New Jersey became the first AG in modern times to resign in scandal:

Zulima Farber became the first New Jersey attorney general in modern history to resign in scandal, announcing her decision yesterday after a special prosecutor determined she violated state ethics rules by aiding her boyfriend at a traffic stop earlier this year.

Gov. Jon Corzine, who pledged a “zero tolerance policy” for ethics infractions in his administration, stood side by side with Farber as they made the announcement at a somber news conference in the governor’s Statehouse office last night. Just seven months earlier, the pair stood in the same room as Corzine tapped Farber as the first Hispanic to serve as New Jersey’s chief law enforcement official.

Six other New jersey officials were indicted last week with corruption charges.
