THis is what I found from

The probe also involves a "high-volume, international money-laundering conspiracy," according to a statement from the office.

Among those arrested in the public corruption portion of the investigation are Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III, Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, New Jersey Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt and Leona Beldini, a Jersey City deputy mayor.

Several rabbis in New York and New Jersey also were arrested in connection with the money-laundering portion of the investigation.

A rabbi is

the chief religious official of a synagogue, trained usually in a theological seminary and duly ordained, who delivers the sermon at a religious service and performs ritualistic, pastoral, educational, and other functions in and related to his or her capacity as a spiritual leader of Judaism and the Jewish community.

Funny story

I was browsing youtube for videos about drug busts and got sidetracked by videos showing piles of money. One of these videos showed a guy driving his car counting fat wads of cash, I checked his profile and he had a couple of these videos. One of the other videos he posted was of himself in a circle with other rabbi's doing a chant. I found this very strange.

I can't find the videos but anyways, what kind of rabbi walks around with huge wads of cash?
