Reporters talk about discovering grand New Jersey Ponzi scheme

    If you missed them live this morning on Radio Times, catch our rebroadcast this evening or online. Or see them live tonight in Cherry Hill.

    We’re talking, of course, about Star-Ledger reporters Josh Margolin and Ted Sherman. They uncovered a big corruption scandal in New Jersey that led to 44 arrests in 2009. But not before a black market organ sale.

    Margolin and Sherman will be at the Cherry Hill Barnes & Noble tonight to talk about and sign their book, The Jersey Sting: A True Story of Crooked Pols, Money-Laundering Rabbis, Black Market Kidneys, and The Informant Who Brought It All Down. The scandal brought down three mayors, five rabbis, two state legislators and the deputy mayor of Jersey City.

    Can’t ask for much more from a book discussion.
