Former New Jersey mayor and his wife plead guilty to tax evasion January 21, 2010

Posted by jefhenninger in News.

Leonard Kaiser admitted that while he was mayor of North Arlington he and wife Barbara took about $30,000 from his re-election campaign fund for personal use without reporting it as income.  Both pleaded guilty to one count of attempted tax evasion.  Kaiser also served as executive director of the Bergen County Utilities Authority and as a commissioner of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission.

I thought it was rather oldd that they both had to plea out.  In other cases I’ve seen, the Government allows one spouse to fall on the sword while the other walks away. 

Story is here.
