On New Jersey's CRDA (the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority)
Yeah, this is a government agency that was essentially set up to syphon off taxpayer dollars and fork them over to various Casino interests and which frequently uses eminent domain to strong-arm citizens/home-owners into selling off their property. It's an incredibly corrupt and abusive way to go about governing (though, yes, one would be hard-pressed to point to another way) and what is especially loathsome about it is that in most instances these land-grabs are either unnecessary (huge lots already being available for developers) or result in zero development (the land is acquired just because they can). Just peachy, huh?
