Impersonating A New Jersey Congressman

A 26-year-old law school student, Njock Eyong, was arrested for impersonating New Jersey Congressman. Donald Payne. (D-Essex), “so he could obtain visas for relatives and others in his native Cameroon”. Eyong is a native of Cameroon who lived in Washington, D.C., before going to Minnesota for school.

Njock Eyong is charged with impersonating a federal official, possession of fraudulent visa documents, and fraud by wire scheme, according to an Oct. 11 indictment in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

Eyong also faxed documents from Washington to Berlin, Frankfurt and Cameroon, according to the nine-count indictment. If convicted, he could face substantial prison time.
Eyong certainly seems “resourceful” and well connected:

While in Washington, he worked as an intern for New Jersey Democratic Rep. Donald M. Payne. In summer 2003, Eyong used the congressman's signature machines and official stationery to demand that visas be issued, said Barbara Kittay of the U.S. attorney's office in Washington.

Eyong also has worked for Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, and as an intern for Judge Vanessa D. Gilmore, a federal judge for the Southern District of Texas.
Eyong, was known as a student leader and fiittlingly went by the nickname “NJ”.

At William Mitchell, Eyong, known by the nickname "NJ" gained the respect of fellow students for his volunteer work. He was involved in student government and in the school's Jewish Law Society.

Eyong, president of the Student Bar Association at William Mitchell College of Law, is known as a student leader and an article on the school's Web site says he plans to become a civil rights trial lawyer.
A “criminal conviction could jeopardize Eyong's plans to become a lawyer”, but a run for politcal office in the Garden State can not be ruled out.

Eric Janus, vice dean for academic affairs at William Mitchell, said Eyong has been "a very engaged and active student here."

Janus said Eyong voluntarily took an indefinite leave of absence from his position with the Student Bar Association this month. Janus said he expected Eyong, who is in his last year of law school, to continue his classes.

"We are honoring the presumption of innocence," Janus said.
Somehow we missed this story in New Jersey’s newspapaers.

Bob Menendez impersonated a Congressman for 14 years! Is anything going to happen to him?

I don't think he has been arrested. He has only been indicted and has an arraignment hearing in October.

If the charges are true, it would indicate he either does not know the differences between right and wrong, or knew he was doing something wrong and proceeded anyway.

This guy is a nut. I was a 3L when he was in his first year at William Mitchell. Everyone notes how well-liked this guy was. Sure, if you like being visually raped in the hallways. He was one of those guys that you just know is kind of "off."

I second Anonymous 5:01's observations about Eyong. I also attended school with Eyong and to say he is "off" is a gross understatement. He is, more appropriately, sociopathic.

I met NJ in the CPU lab at WMCL. He comes off as an affable, boisterous, likeable guy. Then I had to work with him on some student government issues. He is a schyster of the first order and these charges do not suprise me in the least. He's also a consumate player of the race card. Finally, to give my anonymous post credibility I'll add the following--He always wore WAY WAY WAY too much cologne. If he was in the hall in the last 30 minutes, you knew it.

I was sitting in the computer lab one Saturday and he announced loudly to everyone else in the room that I had been his lap dancer the previous night. Sure, I am a lap-dancing lawyer. I had no idea who this guy was. At first I thought he was one of the homeless people that come in to sleep in the library, but nope! Hmm..wonder why this nut got all these nice positions and internships?

The first time I ever laid eyes on NJ and saw his subtle manipulation I thought, "Someday he will become the subject of a great scandal." I just didn't think it would happen so soon. This "respect of his peers" that some have been writing about him is a total farce. People don't respect him, they fearfully tolerate him so they don't come across as rascist and he would be the first one to accuse someone. He treats the classroom like a pulpit for his nonsensical blatherings butchering the words of Dr. King and other Black leaders. He is not the voice of people of color. I'm glad that others see him for the sociopath that he is. Good to know that finally people see that the emperor has no clothes.

As a close friend of Njock's I believe people's personal attacks and reservations are not only farcical, but highly judgmental. The commenters here clearly know little about him and are simply looking to put in their mere two cents. He has always been incredibly smart, but made a really bad choice. What I find the silliest is that in similar crimes like these, the offender is looking for personal gain. Njock, on the other hand, was doing something for family. It was a bad choice to make and I was shocked to hear the news. Especially after he has attained so many accomplishments at a young age. All this 'too much cologne?' sociopath stuff is a load of garbage. He may do some weird things sometimes, but only a fool would say 'yeah he's said weird things--he's such a criminal in the making,' when in truth, he is a very caring, nice person.
