An animal rights group's "cheeky" donation will help fill the City of Trenton's toilet paper gap.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) will provide a six-month supply emblazoned with an anti-slaughterhouse message.
Accepting the offer, the never-a-dull-moment administration of Mayor Tony Mack also moved Tuesday to make emergency paper product purchases for city buildings.
The shortage stems from a stalemate between Mack and the city council about the proposed price of a previous paper product purchase.
The target of an unsuccessful recall effort last year, Mack -- who suffers from no shortage of ego -- has successfully propelled his city into the national spotlight.
But this isn't the first time toilet paper has made headlines in Trenton. In 1990, then-Governor Jim Florio's proposed tax hike on a variety of necessities inspired massive protests in the state capital and may well have flushed his chances for a second term.
