Well, it looks like Mr. Weber got the tiniest of wrist slaps from the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (NJ ELEC) this week:

To be sure, a $300 fine is nothing to Mr. Weber. And we're sure his late filing of a Government Affairs Agent (lobbyist) report was a mere technical oversight. Right.
Just like not mentioning the various PAC's Mr. Weber is involved in during all of the Cooper Levenson/City of Trenton controversy was an oversight. You know, PAC's like Voters United New Jersey that Mr. Weber just happens to have the sole signatory power on their checking account.
According to the 4th quarter ELEC report filed (filed about two weeks late, btw) by Voters United, Riley and Riley, along with Cooper Levenson and Hydro-San (which has the same address and ownership as Alaimo Engineering, another consulting firm that has been trying to get work with the city of Trenton) all gave $5000 to Voters United last December. In that same report, we see that Voters United just happened to make a $2500 contribution to the questionable local Trenton PAC, Partners For Progress that same month.
But don't worry. Mr. Weber, Mr. Levenson and friends have no undue influence over the Mack administration. None whatsoever.
