As sure as fall follows summer and the sun sets in the west, Save Jerseyans, Hudson County Democrats inevitably break the law. It’s just what they do.
Next up is a story from the end of last week: The Crook and I?
Khemraj “Chico” Ramchal (D-Ward B) stands accused of illegal misappropriating “the property of the County of Hudson, specifically through paychecks in the excess of $500, by deception” according to the criminal complaint filed against him.
It’s been a rough year for the guy who could almost be a Yul Brynner stage double, having been fired from his alleged no-show county job earlier this month after a DWI arrest in March which resulted in an assault by auto charge.
The extra layer: Ramchal is a close political ally of likely 2017 Democrat gubernatorial candidate Steven Fulop, an ethics hypocrite in his own right who, according to published reports, is refusing to disown the councilman.
Here’s hoping our state media starts giving Fulop’s regime a similar level of scrutiny as what’s been visited upon Governor Christie’s administration.
