NEW JERSEY GETTING SQUEAKY CLEAN AG NEWARK, N.J. � In dire need of an attorney general beyond ethical reproach, New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine has named his chief counsel, Stuart Rabner, a career federal prosecutor with a knockout resume and a track record of handling complex criminal cases. “I trust him,” said Corzine at a press conference on Aug. 24 announcing the nomination. “He’s a person you can place your confidence in.” Confidence is what Corzine and the public need in the wake of Attorney General Zulima Farber’s decision to resign amid an ethics scandal. There is likely to be no opposition to Rabner’s nomination, and he is seen by legislators and department employees as a sharp improvement over Farber. Unlike Farber, who came into office with a record of traffic infractions, license suspensions and bench warrants for failure to appear in court, Rabner is considered to be without the taint of controversy, according to legislators and aides on both sides. Rabner, 46, is a cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School. Before becoming Corzine’s chief counsel this year, he was a two-decade veteran of the U.S. attorney’s office, with a reputation for prosecuting public corruption cases. At the time of his appointment as governor’s counsel, Rabner was chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Criminal Division in Newark, N.J., supervising 36 lawyers and 65 staffers. He was closely involved in corruption investigations that led to 75 indictments in four years.
