GOP expects Bark to be cleared

A Burlington County Republican leader says that State Senator Martha Bark will be cleared early this year on ethics complaints dealing with several pension-boosting part-time jobs that brought in over $300,000. Bark worked as a consultant to the Burlington County Bridge Commission and as a student counselor for the Burlington County Institute of Technology. The Republican says that Bark will serve the remainder of her term, although many insiders believe the 76-year-old legislator will not seek re-election in 2007.
