It has been an amazing two weeks for those who view New Jersey politics as a spectator sport. Kim Guadagno and Loretta Weinberg have made history as the first major party candidates for Lieutenant Governor. Three mayors, two Assemblymen, and multitude of local officials, and even a few Rabbis, were arrested. A man named Solomon Dwek now has 100% name ID, at least within the political world.
