NY Councilman Alan Jennings gets a little bit of a respite as political scandal mongers are LOVING the news that one of NJ Governor James McGreevey's biggest donors hired a prostitute to thwart a witness in the federal case against him. Yes, it's totally confusing, and it doesn't directly get back to McGreevey, but the fact that real estate developer Charles Kushner, being investigated for tax fraud and illegal campaign contributions, hired a prostitute to seduce a witness and then mailed a tape of the act to the witness's wife is totally insane. In fact, Kushner hired the prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law and accountant, but only the brother-in-law did the deed - his sister's brother! The Post notes that it's "right out of a pulp crime novel," and that's totally spot-on. Gothamist says read up on this and then read some James M. Cain, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler stat!

The Star-Ledger has lots of details, like the case against Kushner and the bad blood between Kushner and his brother-in-law.
