Carmine Salute, Anthony Disabato, Carlos Jaramillo. Here go the Italians again. I'm sure they all look alike too: fat, sagging breasts, hairy backs, have either a rotweiller or german shepherd, drive a big SUV, smoke cigars, and has a mustache that they think hides their big fat faces.

A dishonest Town of Hempstead official? It can't be true. They're the best inspectors and examiners money can buy. Of course that assumes you have enoyugh money to pay them off.

Go get them! It's crazy that the county controls licensing and assessments, and the towns control permits. Niether side will help you when the homeowner needs assistance, they just pass you to the other.

Eliminate all town building departments and give it to the county. Enough with Town-level government....we have too many levels of corruption here

Stories like these make you wonder how many people they have done this to. Personally I hope that others step up and join the fight.

Why don't you call the District Attorney's Office if you have real information on corruption, or is this just the Beer talking?

What makes you think victims haven't lined up to complain of criminal activities to the DA? Corrupt building depts aren't news. Victims doing something about it is.

Why is the name of the attorney not mentioned?? This rag prints the name of arresting officers, placing them and their families at risk, but wont even print the name of the "hack" attorney that actually took this case. Sounds like the dems are behind this.

Finally, the dam is breaking in the Town of Hempstead.

Kate Murray, Gary Hudes and the rest of the Republicans in the County cant spin this one and many others sure to come before Election Day.

Corruption, sure sucks big time. However, these fine individuals are 100 percent not guilty, just like OJ and Michael Vick.

how come in the last 4 hours this story has changed several times. If we tell the truth we don't have to remember our lies. Before everyone jumps to conclusions...always know there is another side to the story and the media needs to edit accordingly to sell papers. The truth is never as much fun as lies. After trying to take down innocent people will the paper print the outcome? I think not because that doesn't sell papers either. Just remember you can't go around spreading evil and think you won't come back to bite you in the ass.

The DA has been jerking around with this investigation for over a year and has not made an arrest, but a slip and fall lawyer beats her to the punch with a civil lawsuit? Something ain't right here.
