Ridgefield Mayor Suarez Refusing to Resign

The Times reports on one of the mayors caught up in the recent corruption arrests in New Jersey and New York.

During a meeting that was taped by the informant, Solomon Dwek, at a diner in Fairview, N.J., Mr. Dwek said he would give $10,000 in cash to Vincent Tabbachino, who owns a tax-return preparation company in Guttenberg, N.J., to finance a fund set up to pay Mr. Suarez’s legal bills stemming from a lawsuit. “So you know it goes in … an account where it doesn’t have to go to E.L.E.C.,” Mr. Suarez is recorded as saying, referring to the Election Law Enforcement Commission, a state agency that tracks campaign contributions.
