‘Mims is Cool’

Busted for taking a bribe in 2007, former Assemblyman/Orange Mayor Mims Hackett is suing the Star-Ledger for publishing the feds’ intitial indictment, which contained Hackett’s social security number.

In the Civil Rights suit filed on May 18th, Hackett also takes aim at Attorney General Anne Milgram, and specific Ledger reporters who covered Orange at the time of his arrest.

Orange sources say Hackett – in local rebuild mode after serving time and resurfacing – was a stealth player in the May council election, suffering a political wound when his strongest surviving ally on the governing body, former Council President Lisa Perkins, lost.
