Newspaper links Stack contribution to FBI undercover company

The Record is reporting that “a political fund linked to Union City Mayor Brian Stack received a $4,000 donation in the middle of August 2007 – the same time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office says a ‘middleman’ for an unnamed “Union City official” received a $4,000 check from the government informant at the center of a far-reaching federal corruption sting.”

According to the newspaper, “a donation of $4,000 from BH Property Management – identified in a federal complaint as “an FBI undercover company” that was used to facilitate money laundering – shows up on a 2007 campaign finance report for Union City First, a political action committee linked to Stack, who is also a state senator. And a payment of $4,000 by a property management company shows up in the government’s complaint against Shimon Haber, one of the 44 people charged in the sting. The complaint says the check was intended to pave the way for help with a development project.”
