After claiming that she didn’t know her kids were getting free lunches, even though she acknowledged filling out the forms for it, it appears Elizabeth Board of Education President Marie Munn has been arrested for stealing from the federal government. And, not for nothing, from the Elizabeth schools she is supposed to be helping.
It’s funny how often the “reformers” who scream about corruption get caught up in corruption scandals. A lot like the homophobes who get caught with male prostitutes, the abstinence preachers who got knocked up out of wedlock, or the anti–government funding candidates who got rich through government funding. Not that they are hypocrites.
Munn’s mortal enemy, State Senator and Union County power broker Ray Lesniak, is hoisting a drink right about now.
UPDATE: PoliticsNJ is reporting that the total cost to the schools was $3,946. Amazing how little it takes to bring a potential power broker down.
