One of the contributors to Lou Magazzu’s NACo slush fund is engineering firm Adams Rehmann & Heggan. This firm has been implicated in many pay-to-play schemes.
He also is paid $3,000 per month as a consultant for the Adams, Rehmann and Heggan engineering firm. Asked how many hours he works per week, he said, “I don’t necessarily put in any.”
Bodine immediately rewarded his new employer with a lucrative government contract.
Assemblyman Fran Bodine no sooner finished swearing in newly-elected Evesham Councilman Chris Brown on July 2nd when he was immediately awarded for his newfound allegiance to the Democrat Party.
Brown joined with the Democrat majority on Council in awarding a contract to the engineering firm of Adams, Rehmann & Heggan – which just happens to be Bodine’s employer.
Bodine, who switched his party registration from Republican to Democrat so he could run for State Senate on the Democrat ticket, works as a paid consultant for Adams, Rehmann & Heggan.
This company is just one piece in a very large puzzle of power players in Camden County trying to sew up all of south Jersey into one large corrupt political machine:
Democrats are sewing up their control of South Jersey, looking to create a solid southern block to match the clout of North Jersey’s Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Middlesex County powerhouses. Burlington County and its local governments — with their millions of dollars in contracts and potential sources of campaign donations — are key to the plan.
Knowing the corrupt history of this company, one has to wonder why they would donate to Lou Magazzu’s secret slush fund, unless they were promised something in return? We have connected the dots with Lou’s donations from legal firms. In every case, the legal firms doing business in the county have donated to Lou, or apparently promised to provide services defending him in the NACo scandal in violation of state laws.
As we have been saying all along, just follow the trail of money!
