WNBC reports that the United States Attorney launched a corruption probe in Bergen County today, serving subpoenas in several municipalities and at least one county agency.
Sources tell PolitickerNJ.com that attorney Dennis Oury, the former counsel to the Bergen County Democratic Organization, is at the center of the probe.
Among the towns hit by subpoenas is Paramus, where Mayor James Tedesco told WNBC’s Brian Thompson that he’s not a target of the investigation. Bergen County sources say that subpoenas were also served in several towns where Oury has contracts, including Bergenfield, New Milford and Fort Lee. They specifically ask for documents related to his billable work. The Bergen County Improvement Authority also received a subpoena.
