New Jersey: West NY mayor arrested for trying to hack into pro-recall website
West New York Mayor Felix Roque has been facing a recall threat. So, obviously, he and his son hacked into their website to find out who was plotting against him.
This was is a doozy. He cancelled the recall website www.recallroque.com, then made harassing calls to one of the recall supporters.
Roque is a Democrat who led a recall petition against former Mayor Sal Vega, then beat him in the city’s nonpartisan election on May 10. He is also a big supporter of Governor Chris Christie, so he plays both sides of the political aisle.
