CamdenHe was the undisputed Boss of South Jersey.

And he wielded enormous power.

He was Mayor of Camden, New Jersey when being Mayor of Camden really meant something.
He was a powerful state senator.

He hobnobbed with major business leaders, power-brokers, governors, congressman, senators and at times, even presidential aspirants. In fact, he was responsible for the election of a whole slew of government officials from the governor on down.
