Barnes deal done to help Choi

Assemblyman Peter Barnes’ appointment as Chairman of the state Parole Board is part of a deal with Governor Jon Corzine to help get Barnes’ son, Peter Barnes III, off the Edison Township Council. Barnes III will fill his father’s State Assembly seat, allowing Mayor Jun Choi, a Corzine ally and Barnes rival, to fill the vacant Council seat with a Democrat from his own camp.
