Forfeiture of Office Statute
 

Issue Detail:

 
I have asked two New Jersey Supreme Court committees to consider promulgating a rule to prevent, or at least make it harder for, municipal prosecutors to evade their responsibility to seek "forfeiture" of office sanctions, in appropriate cases, against municipal officials who are charged with offenses that may touch upon their offices. This letter arises out of my unsuccessful effort to have the question of whether Penns Grove Councilwoman Tami Baytops should have forfeited her office after being convicted of an "electioneering" offense.
