If you missed the news, busloads of NJ politicians and a flock of rabbis were taken to FBI HQ in Newark for booking the other day.
The charges? Garden variety corruption and money laundering – with one big twist.
One of the indicted is charged with offering a kidney for sale to an informant.
What the TV news is NOT reporting is:
1. The FBI was advised of this organ traffciking ring SEVEN YEARS AGO by a totally credible source (a university professor) and it’s MUCH larger than a single potential transaction.
2. Law enforcement in Brazil and South Africa acted immediately on the information and went after the criminals.
3. This was not just organ dealing. It was organ stealing. Impoverished people were flown in and told if they didn’t go through with the deal, they’d be shot. Some had no idea the details of what they’d agreed to.
Organs were “bought” for $10,000 and re-sold for $150,000 and more.
It took the FBI SEVEN YEARS to get themselves in gear and get an indictment.
