Middletown Withdraws from Unfair Affordable Housing Proceedings

MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Last week the Middletown Township Committee directed its attorneys to withdraw from court proceedings that commenced in July 2015 to address unrealistic affordable housing obligations imposed upon municipalities throughout New Jersey by the Supreme Court.  On Wednesday, July 17, 2019, the Township Attorney applied for an Order of Dismissal, which was entered by the Hon.

Feds Used Rep Smith’s Law To Snag Jeffrey Epstein

Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted financier pedophile, will learned today if he will remain incarcerated pending the outcome of his trail on charges of Sex Trafficking Conspiracy and Sex Trafficking.

Epstein is charged under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 which was authored and shepherded through Congress by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ-4).

MMM asked Smith to comment on the Epstein indictment and the TVPA’s impact on prosecuting human trafficking.

“Nearly 20 years ago, I wrote the Trafficking Victims Protection Act which is being used in the Epstein prosecution, to give law enforcement better tools to prosecute, convict and jail human traffickers—and to help rescue and protect victims, who are mostly women and children,” said Smith who also authored four subsequent laws reauthorizing, strengthening and expanding America’s anti-human trafficking programs.
