Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano says he won't resign and plans to continue running the city as he fights federal corruption charges. The 33-year-old election law attorney, who won a runoff election weeks ago, is accused of taking $25,000 in bribes from a developer. The developer was cooperating with the FBI and wore a wire.

Cammarano was among 44 people arrested Thursday in a sweeping federal corruption and money laundering probe.

The mayor denies the charges and says he's "fully capable" of fulfilling his oath of office while his case is pending.
