In New Jersey, everyone is connected to everyone — so when a powerful politician whose father is a county executive and who holds influential positions of her own is accused of wrongdoing, can the system really be expected to hold her to account? WNYC's Nancy Solomon explores that question in the case of Amy DeGise, the Jersey City Councilwoman accused of a hit-and-run. Most of her fellow councilmembers have demurred or avoided speaking at all about whether she should step down. And while her court case is being moved out of Hudson County, where she's so connected to the local Democratic machine, some activists say that isn't enough.
