Is This the Beginning of the End for the Jersey City Machine?
Mayor Jerramiah Healy's deputy mayor -- Leona Beldini -- has been convicted on two criminal counts stemming from the money that a cooperating federal witness -- Mr. Solomon Dwek -- liberally distributed to a variety of politicians in northern New Jersey and Jersey City in exchange for official favors for Mr. Dwek, who they mistakenly believed was a real estate developer who wanted their favors.
