Politically Indicted

Wrongfully accused. Publicly tried. Politically indicted.

In 2009, Ridgefield, New Jersey mayor Anthony Suarez was arrested and charged with extortion and bribery as a part of Operation Bid Rig III, an elaborate government sting orchestrated by then-United States Attorney for New Jersey Chris Christie. The only problem? Suarez hadn’t taken the $10,000 bribe, and he’d spend the next year and a half fighting to prove it.

Politically Indicted: The Real Story Behind the Jersey Sting is Suarez’s first-hand account of the biggest political sting operation in New Jersey history that candidly presents the obstacles he and his family faced as he worked to clear his name. By exploring our criminal and political system, as well as reflecting upon all of the ultimately rewarding aspects of spending his life serving the public, Mayor Suarez offers an exceedingly unique look into what happens when the world of politics and justice collide.
