Perhaps he should pee in one of those cups, obviously you are on something.

Its time for the city to have a job fair for new workers who can be hired by their credentials and not by appointees........

Thank you Tim for once again showing us how our tax dollars are being put to use. While we struggle to buy food for our families Public Officials are raking it in on our dime.

This State is so corrupt I'm sure plenty of that is going on and they should all be fired and new people hired and not friends or family of anyone that works for the State. They don't care because the taxpayer is footing the bills for all the slackers and over spenders

I wish someone would come investigate the Town of West Warwick. There's more going on here than meets the eye. The School Department gets blamed for everything, when in fact, what goes on in the town is a travesty. Like 3 snowplows plowing a circle at the same time!!!!!! What a waste of taxpayers money. Also, we'd all like to work for 4 hours and get paid for 8!!!! That's if you work for another town department!!!!

Tim: Nice job, The problem is, it's Rhode (Rogue) Island. And the fact that no one will do anything to this guy says it all. It is a cancer in the society of Rhode Island and has been for decades. It's a style and way of life. The unions rule, because the state is a haven for liberal, heavy handed mobsters/union hacks. No one dares touch a guy like Abrahamson, he has more proverbial wood on his crooked bosses than trees in the forest. Nice work, too bad the cesspool will always be a cesspoool.

If you read the article and watch the video correctly, you will see what I am about to say is correct.
Mr White, who was following Mr Abrahamson, obviously without his knowledge states:
Mr Abrahamson was in the building for EIGHT minutes.
He also says that the building and social club is owned and operated by a convicted felon and a known mob associate.
Mr Abrahamson, who was on city business, was in the neighborhood of the social club and had to go to the bathroom.
He's a dues paying member at the same social club.
He went in the social club to use the facilities and have a cup of coffee. Also to pick up coffee cups. All of which took a total of EIGHT minutes.
It is Not a mob hangout. It is a legitimate Mens Social Club. The Dequateur Square social club, which has been there forever.
It has a current license hanging on the wall, which is signed by the people at PROVIDENCE CITY HALL stating that it is a legitmate social club.
As far as the owner being a convicted felon.... people do not wear signs around their necks stating if they are a felon or not. You may be sitting next to one anywhere.

1. Any city employee is entitled to 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon, also 1/2 hour for lunch. Mr Abrahamson, who did NOT know he was being followed, was in the social club for EIGHT minutes according to Mr white.
WHAT DID HE DO WRONG???? a little sensationalism seems to be the problem here.
