Politically Indicted is a great book. Anthony Suarez cares deeply for the community that he serves. Both Anthony and his wife Catherine endured so much during this difficult time. It is upsetting to be wrongly accused of bribery and having to defend yourself for over a year and a half. It is uplifting to see the overwhelming support from his community. This book is a MUST READ.

Finished this book in 6 hours. Couldn't put it down. What Anthony and his family endured was heartbreaking at the hands of the FBI and corrupt government officials. God bless the good politicians because they are few and far between. This book was well written and will keep your attention. Highly recommended!

In the summer of 2009 the major news event was the arrest of several New jersey Public Officials. Politically Indicted tells the story of what truly happened and follows the story of Mayor Anthony Suarez who became the first politician found NOT GUILTY of corruption charges. For those living in NJ and the surrounding areas it is the account that the press did not follow while hyping the corruption charges. The book brings back vivid memories of the time of the arrest and indictment. The book is ...more

Anthony's words on page 160 are instructive: "The world of politics is dangerous." For more than 40 years, I have been politically neutral. I feel the political system is deeply flawed. However, I felt a deep sense of rage after reading what Anthony and his family were subjected to those 18 months. I had some hazy idea of what was happening; but nothing prepared me for what I read in this book. I'm not naive; I've seen what happens to well-intentioned men and women who try to make substantive ch ...more

Life is a story, and we are storytellers. It's our choice to be what kind of actors in our adventure. Good or bad! The "Politically Indicted" book is about a good man.

I finished reading Politically Indicted by Anthony R. Suarez, Mayor of Ridgefield, NJ. An emotionally charged compelling novel that delved into the greed of top state officials and how they would stop at nothing to further their political careers. I felt angry & sad reading Anthony’s personal account of the nightmare he lived and how he & his family were treated. I felt inspired and hopeful reading about the strong, beautiful relationship Anthony and his wife Catherine share and the people who s ...more

I finished this book in record time for me. I'm not the fastest reader, but I couldn't put this book down. Anthony writes from the heart about a horrible time in his life. Politics if you follow it is a scary thing and what happened to Anthony is down right heartbreaking. Honest people are falsely accused all the time, but when you read how the FBI and local government were targeting him it truly is mind blowing. I think there are lessons in this book for everyone and if you are thinking of ente ...more

Extremely well written, fascinating read. Anthony Suarez is already a strong public servant for the citizens of Ridgefield. Now he's providing a huge public service for everyone else. He reminds us all of the importance of a concept we first learned in grade school: innocent until proven guilty, an American value that gets lost on the press, prosecutors seeking higher office, elected officials trying to get reelected, and opponents seeking unfair advantage. This is not a New Jersey story, it's a ...more

Politically Indicted is a wonderful read. What Anthony and his family went through during this time is heartbreaking. Anthony was falsely accused of accepting a bribe during the largest NJ sting operation, Operation Big Rig III. As Mayor of a small town, the government and the opposing party were stunned that the residents stood by him during this long ordeal. This book not only tells the story of what it is like to be falsely accused but the strength of Anthony, his family and friends faith tha ...more
