Newark's Mayor Sharpe James framed by Gov. Christie?
CEMOTAP's February 15th guest will be popular Newark Mayor, Sharpe James, who has bounced back from a stint in a prison in Petersburg, Virginia to become a best selling author, political activist and courageous cheerleader for the city of Newark, Mayor James has unraveled the mystery of the hidden hands and architects of Newark's seemingly intractable corruption in a tell all book."Political Prisoner" that names names and pulls no punches.
The charges of fraud, lies and deception currently swarming around New Jersey Governor Chris Christie comes as no surprise to readers of Newark Mayor Sharpe James' book, "Political Prisoner." According to Mayor James, Christie, then a U.S. Attorney in 2008 targeted him as a way of enhancing his own political ambitions. Christie went so far as to pay a disgruntled former employee of the Mayor's to wear a wire in hopes of entrapping him in some wrong doing. His aim was for Sharpe James to die in prison and even said so at one of the many press conferences he and his lead prosecutor, Judith Germano held during the trial.
Although Mayor James, who served in office from 1986 to 2008, is adamant that he committed no crime, he was sent to prison in 2008 to serve several years. While serving time in a Bureau of Prisons facility in Petersburg Virginia, he meticulously documented the artful dodging and shadowy activities of New Jersey's top politicians including Gov. Corzine and Mayor Corey Booker. While incarcerated James used the manual typewriter in the prison library to write his memoir and expose the injustice and corruption that existed during his service, particularly the corruption that surrounded the swaggering and now beleaguered New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie.
CEMOTAP co-chair Betty Dopson indicated " most informed Africans have always believed that Mayor James was innocent. His mistake was to help Black folks in Newark acquire property and power." The public is invited to CEMOTAP Center on February 15th at 2:P.M.at 135-05 Rockaway Blvd, South Ozone Park to hear Mayor James' riveting account of his incarceration that included strip searches and fondling, and to purchase his book, "Political Prisoner."This book" said Dopson," clearly indicates how Newark has primarily suffered from the power recklessness of Governor Christy who now crawls on his knees apologizing to all who will listen.
