Ex-Democratic Leader Sentenced for Bribery

A former northern New Jersey political leader who tried to bribe his way out of paying overdue taxes has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.

Michael Kazmark of Woodland Park also must pay his full tax liability under the sentence imposed Friday and will have to serve two years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison. He had pleaded guilty last June to bribing a federal public official, admitting that he gave more than $18,000 in 2010 to two people he thought were IRS agents

The 61-year-old Kazmark formerly served as chairman of the Woodland Park Democratic Committee.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office has said Kazmark failed to pay federal income tax from 1997 through 2005 and owed the government more than $98,000.
