TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - January 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- An aide says the indicted mayor of New Jersey's capital plans to attend President Barack Obama's inauguration despite travel restrictions.
Trenton Mayor Tony Mack is in Washington.
Aide Anthony Roberts tells the Times of Trenton Mack attended the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting earlier this week and plans to attend Monday's inauguration.
