State lawmakers spent Monday discussing ways to combat corrupt New Jersey politics.
Attorneys, political analysts and even convicted money launderer Sam Antar of Crazy Eddie's infamy addressed legislators. Antar told lawmakers corruption can't be prevented, and undercover sting investigations are the way to proceed.
Former federal prosecutor Robert Stahl encouraged better ethics training for elected officials, but even Stahl acknowledges how commonplace the problem is.
"People develop a sense of entitlement over time," he says. "There comes a point when people say this is the way it's always been done."
