Not Mariano Vega, nosiree Bob. Even though FBI agents say they have him meeting no less than six times with Solomon Dwek over meals, Vega, the day before he was arrested this summer apparently lied to the FBI saying he'd never seen Dwek before in his life. Despite the fact Vega's buddy Maher Khalil has pled guilty to basically what Vega is charged with (except the lying) and was there at the time, Vega says he has no intention of pleading guilty.
The FBI says they have it on tape, all of it. So far of everyone who has been charged in the big sting--not one has been found not guilty. Many have pled guilty, many have been sentenced so it sure appears the FBI has their ducks in a row, and it sure seems Mariano Vega is intent on dragging Jersey City's name through the dirt on his way to jail.
Just resign, you'll still get your day in court but your usefulness as any kind of city representative has long since passed if it ever existed to begin with. Mr. Vega, you're a disgrace.
