Trenton Mayor Tony Mack, who was arrested in September for allegedly extorting bribes from a parking garage developer, is now under fire for carpeting contracts in former city libraries, the Trenton Times reports.

The FBI became suspicious of the carpeting contract after questions were raised in newspapers about Mack’s decision to bypass city council and convert several closed libraries into learning centers, the Trenton Times reported.

“They just wanted to know what was going on. They saw the stuff in the paper,” said Roy Summers, who owns Justin’s Furniture & Carpet, which won a $17,000 contract to re-carpet  a library. “The gist of it was, they were fed up, frustrated with what’s going on in the city of Trenton.”

Summers said Mack’s aide, Anthony Roberts, hand-picked vendors instead of taking bids.
