Caramagna contends the charges brought by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office are politically motivated.

Francesco Caramagna, 73, became the first Democratic mayor of the borough in 47 years when he was elected to the post in 2017.

Although his term expires at the end of this year, a plea bargain would require him to step down and never hold public office in New Jersey again.

Campagna was vacationing with family at Walt Disney World in Florida and couldn’t immediately be reached Tuesday. An email and private message were sent requesting comment from him or his attorney.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office as a policy doesn’t comment on pending investigations.

Sources confirmed the probe for Daily Voice on Tuesday, however.
