Assemblyman Nelson Albano of Vineland claims he may have been targeted as payback for health-benefit and pension reforms recently approved by the Legislature, though he acknowledges he has no proof to back up that assertion. The trooper who issued the citation claims police union leaders pressured him to make the ticket "disappear," allegations they deny.

The Landis was built in the depths of the Depression by native son Gene Mori, who later built Garden State Race Track and the Cherry Hill Inn and who owned the land where Cherry Hill Mall sits. Intended to make a grand statement, Mori's 1,200-seat movie palace and stage were as dazzling as those on Chestnut Street in Center City. For decades after World War II, the Landis filled its seats.
