Authorities arrest 44 in N.J. corruption case

A two-year corruption and international money-laundering investigation stretching from the New Jersey shore to Brooklyn to Israel and Switzerland culminated in charges against 44 people yesterday, including three New Jersey mayors, two state assemblymen, and five rabbis, authorities said.

Much of the cash came from Israel, where a man arrested as part of the inquiry yesterday said he obtained the money from a Swiss banker, prosecutors said. Another man in Brooklyn, Levy-Izhak Rosenbaum, was accused of enticing vulnerable people to give up a kidney for $10,000 and then selling the organ for $160,000.
