NJ Engineering Executive Indicted Over Campaign Gifts

A former executive of a large New Jersey engineering firm has been indicted on charges that he helped his firm illegally reimburse employees for $150,000 worth of political contributions.

Sixty-year-old Thomas Rospos was the executive vice-president at Monmouth County Birdsall Services groups, a company that has received millions of dollars in public contracts.

The state Attorney General’s Office says he had employee give non-reportable political contributions of under $300, then had the company reimburse them through bonus payments. The state says the firm should have been disqualified from receiving public contracts under state law.

Rospos’ lawyer Henry Klingeman says he’ll plead not guilty.

A firm employee pleaded guilty in the case last month.

Current Birdsall officials say they are cooperating with the investigation.
