Former Newark Mayor Sharpe James, 72, and his ex-mistress were convicted of corruption charges centered on her cut-rate purchase of city land. The verdicts were a stunning rebuke to James, who was mayor of the state's largest city for 20 years. Gov. Jon S. Corzine -- a Democrat, like James -- said: "It is a sad day as a jury of citizens confirmed the betrayal of the public trust by a long-standing and well-known public official. Any of the good works done by Mayor James are now overshadowed by this corruption conviction."

In ballot measures being decided Tuesday, Utah voters defeated the country's first statewide school voucher program open to all children, not just those from low- or middle-income families. The voucher program would have granted $500 to $3,000, depending on family income, for each child sent to private school. The measure was approved by the Legislature in February, but opponents gathered enough signatures to force a referendum.
