Do you think that the Federal Agents do not know the answers to all your justifiable concerns (and more than we will never know about) and your questions?

More details might emerge after his August 9 guilty plea federal court appearance. The threat of up to 10 years and $250,000 fine does have a tendency to affect significantly one's cranium functionality. It sometimes makes an instant opera performer in the Italian tradition.

His options are continued cooperation or incarceration. August 9 could or may be a career changer for Clairton ex-business manager and the perpetual saga of the revered and mystical late Dr. Risha. Is there an omen about the reach of the law into one’s interment province? It seems that one might run temporally but even the deceased cannot escape the reach of the law.

The former WMASD business manager who abruptly resigned should be interviewed.

Who lined up the plush job he got at another school district?

Could he be the next Mr. Imbrogno?

Who covered for his election law transgression?

He's now the director of federal programs at a school..... I bet he's under a big microscope. He better make sure his phone isn't tapped at this point. You know that Ralph probably spilled a lot of beans.

Could it be that he is already in the investigative equation? Perhaps he provided the information on the Clairton ex-business manager and former superintenent?

He skipped WMASD in quick order. He might have had access to the CSI investigative report and acted accordingly.

For the ex-business manager August 9 could be a life game changer.

He copperates and sings,- he may not serve any significant time or may be none.

If he uses "I do not recall" he will share a cell with other recently convicted state officials, Orie, Veon, DeWeese, and Habay.

He may be a smart business manager and cooperate with the federal agents and other charges will not surface.

I think the investigation of his involvements will end on Aug 9.

But it could move to others.

I respectfully disagree with you. I believe this is just the beginning of a series of misdeeds being uncovered systematically by the Federal Agents.

I believe that there may be more cases at WMASD. It is hard to believe that the late Dr. Risha tried this scheme only once and with one vendor at WMASD and never at MASD or SASD.

The Federal Agents were clever the way they processed this case. They only prosecuted one of ten transgressions. Nine counts against late Dr. Risha / Mr. Imbrogno are being held in abeyance for reasons unknown at this time.

He will not be sentenced until December 6 or four months. This gives all the other guilty parties, if any, at Clairton, WMASD, McKeesport, MASD, SASD and other government divisions time to sweat a call or knock on the door from a Federal Agent. This mental torment may cause some to step forward and cooperate with these Federal Agents in return for some degree of immunity.

I think it bodes much better to call the Feds than have them visit you. Why take the hit and rap for someone that made a ton of money more than you on the nefarious dealings?

Singing by the staffs of Orie, DeWeese, Veon, and Halbya is what done them in.

Thanks but I am more worried about my wrists.

Sure, I did the right thing. You got join them if you cannot win fighting them. Ralph understands joining and Orie, Veon, DeWees, and Halbay understand fighting. Who went to jail?

And, who is in the next to be on the front page?

It is not over for Ralph until sentencing in December. He may cooperate with the authorities in the interim.

I tend to believe and suspect that the investigation covertly continues both in Clairton and beyond.

The late Dr. Risha's shadow fell long and far in Mob Valley. The Imbrogno matter may not be an isolated transgression. I suspect a lot of aftershocks if Ralph continues to talk.

The Federal Agents may be looking at other contracts at WMASD, MASD, and SASD where the good and late doctor operated. There could be a pattern here. This all happened under the auditor, school directors, and business manager’s noses?????

One common event is that he did not complete his contract at any of these school districts and then walked with a pot of money for contract terminations.

The Federal Agents might look at those school directors who supported him. He was hired several times over more qualified persons who earned a doctorate degree.

Here's a rough draft of an article I put together years ago. The corruption in PA is an open secret. The only reason why I reported of this stuff before the feds and the Post-Gazette, I don't take orders from the Zappala Crime Family.

Pat Risha -- PA’s fattest school superintendent
By Mike Ference

Pat Risha may be a gluten for any food substance not nailed done, but when it comes to a crowd gone wild comparing the almost-500-pound, so-called political power broker to private parts of the male anatomy, the West Mifflin Area School Superintendent has but one answer, to meet him “after the meeting.” According to a story in the August 27 edition of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, that reported on another chaos-filled West Mifflin Area School District board meeting.

Pat Risha has a long and checkered career in PA public education – all in the Mon Valley or Mob Valley section of western PA. According to my sources Risha wiggled out of gambling charges when a coffee shop manager agreed to accept responsibility for the crimes in exchange for 20-grand – an amount equal to the manager’s yearly salary. The coffee shop was in the name of a family member and another partner, according to my sources. But it was Risha who ran the place. I’ve known the bagman for years. I’m sure he would not have been foolish enough to allow a coffee shop manager to run a gambling operation behind the back of a man who can’t even control his temper in a public forum

For the record, my sources include a former West Mifflin teacher who also coached for Risha at Clairton School, another Mon Valley mob-controlled town. Another source was a life-long resident of Clairton who would make rounds with the bagman occasionally and verified all the details provided by the former coach/teacher. And just for the record, there are dozens more. Pat Risha’s senanighans are common knowledge.

Another source who knew Risha when he was the superintendent at South Allegheny School district recalled how Risha booked numbers and took gambling bets in his superintendent’s office. Maybe that’s one of the reasons Risha now prefers to earn his $140,000 salary from the comforts of his Belle Vernon home. Possibly allowing for multiple telephone lines to accommodate off-shore gambling bets. Sound far-fenched? Not according to a former West Mifflin Police chief who confided in me that Risha reported to a mob-like-figure in the small town of Glassport, PA. Yes, another Mon valley mob town.

Is this the best Pennsylvania has to offer when it comes to educating children? A superintendent with no Ph.D. and very questionable superintendent credentials, according to a well-informed source. How is this possible?

Let’s take a look at Risha’s network on the other side of the spectrum. Whatever school district hires or is forced to hire Patrick Risha, close behind is lawyer, Jack Cambest. Cambest is a partner in the firm Dodaro Cambest and Associates. One of the firms specialties is earning great sums of money in PA School districts. One of the last candy stores for unscrupulous awarding of no-bid or low-bid contracts. More on this topic at a later date.

James Dodaro is the other partner in the law firm. The same James Dodaro known for handing out jobs to politically connected nitwits as one of chairperson’s on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. A PA government agency labeled the most corrupt by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, recently.

Dodaro, former protégé to PA Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Zappala, grew up playing with the Zappala children. According to author, William Kiesling, it was the senior Zappala who helped mentor Dodara through Duquesne University Law School and then helped establish Dodaro in the family law practice and finally sponsored Dodaro’s appointment to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.

ConHow could such high-level PA government officials get involved with a scumbag like Patrick Risha? How is it that Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr., has never gotten wind of Pat Risha’s alleged high jinks.

We’ll take a look at the Zappala family ancestry, maybe, we’ll see how far the apples have fallen from the tree. Ironically, the Pittsburgh media claims the Sicialian mob is kaput; maybe it just merged with PA government.

One more thing, could there be any relationship between former Satanic/pedophile Catholic priest John Wellinger and Patrick Risha, stayed tuned, the fun is just beginning.

Did the city receive business privilege tax from the company?
Businesses in Clairton all pay a % as business tax. If the company was located in Clairton, then it should be obligated to pay it. Ask any business on Miller Ave and they will tell you they pay business tax.

Does Keystone collections know about this?
Did the workers pay West Mifflin the $54 occupational tax?
Unemployment taxes?
