Charges are coming down today against Wildwood Mayor Gary DeMarzo for using city funds to pay for a lawsuit was involved with against the city. DeMarzo tells Coastal Broadcasting that Cape May County Prosecutor Robert Taylor is using “political sabotage” with the Wildwood elections coming up in May. DeMarzo and Taylor have been at odds on a number of occasions, but most well-known over a tape that allegedly shows a Wildwood police officer using excessive force back in 2000. The city has asked for the tape back, but Taylor has refused to hand it over saying possession of the tape belongs to the prosecutor’s office.
DeMarzo said that he did nothing wrong and is using his office as a tool to get political retribution.
