Okay, so Cook County, Illinois has got nothing on us.
At this point, I think we’re all in agreement on that. We do agree that Culm County is the most corrupt place this side of the nearest ACORN office, yes?
So what’s this bunk published by the Citizens’ Voice today?
Feds plan to seek indictments of Munchak, Cordaro
Federal prosecutors intend to seek indictments next month against Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Bob Cordaro from a federal grand jury investigating public corruption, according to a letter from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
The government's plans are spelled out in a letter signed Jan. 14 by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lorna N. Graham, who said prosecutors intend to present U.S. v. Robert Cordaro and A.J. Munchak to a federal grand jury on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
What’s that? A challenge to our corruption supremacy?
We’ve had, what, 23, or was it 24 elected and appointed officials caught up in the federal corruption probe here in Luzerne County? 3 judges. A sitting president judge. A former president judge. And then the piece de resistance, a sitting county commissioner.
Pretty tough to top, wouldn’t you think?
But in Lackawanna County, it seems the Feds are starting at the top and working their way down from there. Right out of the gate, they seek to topple a sitting commissioner as well as a former commissioner?
Trying to upstage us, are they?
Since the corruption probe is now confirmed to have spread to our neighboring county to the north, we need a standardized scoring system as Culm County’s title of America’s Most Corrupt Place now seems to be in play. So no matter the rank, title or position of the indicted, we’ll award one point per indictment.
And the way I see it, we’ve got a sizeable, but nervous lead over that gangly-looking expansion team to the north, 24-2.
So at the end of the first quarter, it's Culm County 24, Lackawanted County 2.
And the battle rages on.
From a local blog:
4. Piazza is a victim of the theory that everybody under the dome is dirty or corrupt. He has done an incredible job of disseminating information to campaigns and the media. And he has not favored one group over the other. Len Piazza should not be pilloried in the community for social networking during the day when he is at work. To do so is to make a mountain out of a molehill and defame the character and work ethic of a good man.
At my place of employment, he'd be written up in triplicate the first time. Terminated the second time.
I happen to work for a real company, a company that turns a huge profit, a company that measures the hours worked by the employee versus the sales generated by said employee. A company that is not real big on paying people to play.
Or, you could say, I work for a private sector Fortune 500 company. You know, the real world.
