Joseph N. DiVincenzo Jr.

File this under “Only In New Jersey”. A few days ago, the Star Ledger revealed that Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo Jr.  retired last year as county executive, three months before winning his third term as county executive. We kid you not. Only in New Jersey would there be a loophole that would allow anyone to do that.

Wait, it gets better. Gov. Chris Christie then chimed in, terming DiVincenzo’s action “wrong”. “And it’s not just for him,” the governor said during a press conference. “It’s wrong for all the other people who are doing it.” All the other people. Makes you really love New Jersey.

Today, the Ledger is reporting that DiVincenzo, who has done a lot of good for Essex County during his time in office, apologized. No, not for taking a pension while continuing to do a job, a move that has added a $68,862 pension to his $153,207 salary. No, he apologized for the news being a distraction.

Only in New Jersey. You can read the story here.
