The tragic death of Sheriff DiPaola has exposed just one of the ways the taxpayers can be ripped-off by greedy politicians. Maybe this would be a good time to expose the other community "leaders" that are shamelessly (unlike DiPaola) taking advantage of us by using this same loophole?

DiPaola did not kill himself over the issue of being caught in an attempt to double dip. There is obviously much more involved in order for him to take his own life. So before you give him too much credit for backing out of the scheme -- once he was exposed -- Think about what kind of skullduggery he may have been involved in that would drive him to take his life rather than face the consequences. I am sure no flags would be flying at half mast if the truth be known.

Gyrfalcon,
I tend to agree with what you say; there is more to this than we know now. I hope his death will serve to bring the issue to the forefront and open the eyes of taxpayers so we become more proactive and pissed off. We have so many reasons to be pissed off! Many of them we don't even know about yet. I think this issue is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the greed and selfishness at every level of government. In the end it's always the middle class that ends up paying the bill.

There is a part of me that feels that his suicide was too high a price to pay. As a father and Grandfather, I really sympathize with what his family is going through and what they will have to live with as time goes on.
