There is no word yet on how Dennis Oury's guilty plea this morning will affect the federal corruption trial of former Bergen County Democratic Chairman Joseph Ferriero, which is set to begin on Thursday. Oury, the former counsel to the Bergen County Democratic Organization, is Ferriero's co-defendant. The two face conspiracy and mail fraud charges connected to their ownership of a grant-writing company.
Oury was a huge contributor to Democrats in Bergen County and across the state, and a top fundraiser. Expect Republicans to push for a return of his campaign contributions.
