Star-Ledger: Coniglio is target of federal probe

State Sen. Joseph Coniglio is the target of a federal corruption investigation, the Star-Ledger reported today. Coniglio “was issued a so-called ‘target letter’ as part of an investigation by the U.S. Attorney's office into the senator's dealings with Hackensack University Medical Center.”

The hospital had received over $1 million in state funds while Coniglio, a two-term Democrat from Bergen County, was their $55,000-a-year plumbing consultant.
