Atlantic City mayor denies link to drug dealers
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - October 3, 2013 (WPVI) -- Atlantic City's mayor is outraged that a former prosecutor believed the mayor had ties to drug dealers.
Former Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel spoke at an evidence hearing Wednesday during a lawsuit filed by former Police Chief John Mooney. Housel said he had reason to believe Mayor Lorenzo Langford was aware a city employee was dealing drugs out of a city building.
Housel also said he had photos taken when he saw the mayor talking to two known drug dealers at the scene of a double homicide.
In a statement released to The Press of Atlantic City, the mayor characterized Housel's statements as reckless and politically motivated. Langford said the prosecutor had a duty to address any improper activity.
