35 years in the slammer would be just about right for this scumbag.

We'll have to wait until March to see what his sentence really is. Let's not forget time off for good behavior.

Hope his expensive lawyers don't get him a lesser sentence. He deserves the maximum.

It's too bad they can't prove he used any funds from the illegal deal in the purchase of the Americus Hotel. Then they could liquidate it and A-town could kick his rear to the curb.

If someone could explain why mendelson would not pay txes until the eleventh hour,before the property was about to be seized,I'd appreciate it.
The stress alone,of having the city breathing down my neck,would make me desperate to sell.
I can't understand what the pay off was for Mendelson to repeatedly go thru that?

alot of people actually do this with their taxes, from what I'm told, "why should the city (whatever) be able to collect the interest on my money?" is their way of thinking....They hold off as long as they possibly can...

What took them so long to finally take down this scumbag. I guess little people like myself were just victims. I'll believe jail time when I see
him being taken away in cuffs and leg irons. He
has destroyed many people with his schemes.
Would love to be there at the sentencing.

That wouldn't be a smart move as his lawyers probably have Mob connections and don't appreciate being stiffed ....

AMEN. However, he will weasel out of this. He has politicans, judges, union people in his pocket. This little episode is exactly what he has been doing for 30 years.

I have stories that would make your hair curl. He does have mob connections because he is a Ciciola not Mendelson, that was his step fathers name. He first started his
scamming when he was 8-9 years old, at
the 9th Street Italian Market, making
keys at the end of the vendors tables.
He uses the sheetmetal workers pension
fund to fund some of his misadventures. I never understood how
he was able to get that money. What
he is accused of now is exactly what he has done over the years, together
with banking officials. He always had
a Philadelphia judge to bail him out
of situations. I don't know why this
is now a federal crime, he has been doing this forever.

used the discrimination card. He Jewish, ha ha ha.

Seize all of his assets, liquidate them, and put the proceeds to improving the communities his scams have blighted. Put him behind bars, and throw away the key!
