New Jersey’s attorney general said Monday he is setting up an office to fight corruption and build confidence in government.
Gurbir Grewal said the new Office of Public Integrity and Accountability will be led by longtime federal prosecutor Thomas Eicher, who will report directly to Grewal as the office investigates an assortment of crimes.
Among the areas the office will focus are allegations of civil rights violations, wrongful convictions and as well as “sensitive matters” for federal, state and local officials, according to Grewal, whom Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy appointed this year.
Sharon Worosilo, MD praised the Attorney General for his focus on fairness by rooting out violations and wrongful allegations/convictions. She agreed with the Attorney General on his focus to stopping corruption and misconduct when he said:
“Simply put, we must hold accountable those who violate the public trust or undermine the criminal justice system,” he said.
Following her own experience with being wrongfully accused and having to fight to clear her name over merit less accusations, Sharon Worosilo praised the Attorney General for his continued attempts to stop violations by officials who abuse their power.
