Marc Morial's Questionable Homestead Exemption

Former New Orleans Mayor, Marc Morial, does not live in New Orleans. That is what makes the following a questionable activity by the former mayor:

Though he has been hard to find in the Crescent City, Morial continued to file for, and receive, a local homestead exemption every year. In doing so, he certified that the Bienville Street home was his primary residence -- even though in 2005, he and his wife, television reporter Michelle Miller, bought a $1.1 million home in Maplewood, N.J. New Jersey has no homestead exemption law.

Is this illegal? What if others tried to pull the same stunt. This is a perfect example of the "content of his character". Stay tune...there may be more to come.
