Longshoreman’s association member gets 30 months

A former International Longshoremen’s Association (“ILA”) member was sentenced to 30 months in prison today for conspiring to extort ILA Local 1235 longshoremen on the New Jersey piers for Christmastime tribute payments, New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman and Eastern District of New York U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch announced. 

Edward Aulisi, 53, of Flemington, N.J., previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Dennis M. Cavanaugh in Newark federal court to conspiring to extort Christmas tributes from the ILA Local 1235 members – Count Three of the Second Superseding Indictment against him.

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
