The AG spends countless hours and tax payer money only to find out that Corbett did not stall the Jerry Sandusky investigation.
The report not released yet to the public confirms no wrong doing on Corbett's part.
Another failed attempt by the AG to net a big fish , but comes up empty.
Let's see, the Philly debacle, 16 indicted crooks for gambling machines in the Mon Valley get a kiss on the cheek from the AG and now the Corbett laugher.
That's an 0-3 for the stumbling AG..........
I think she may be out of her league IMO.
I agree she should resign and return her paychecks.

The bar is set so low for integrity in all levels of our government. It doesn't matter any more. That's why politicians like Brewster and Gergely look like champions for the people.

The corruption is embedded in the system and the status quo is maintained for their benefit.

End of story. I take solace in not being one of them.

Mike:

Today PA was ranked the 5th most corrupt state in the union. You have been stating that for years.

Now what counties are the most corrupt in PA? Phila or Allegheny? Now what are the most corrupt municipalities in Allegheny? I place McKeesport at of near the top of the list.

How are the unreported drug busts going student mayor? We have the biggest narc squad in the Commonwealth without any drug busts? Why? Where are you FBI and AG Kane?

I appreciate your kind words and support. Truth be told, we would all be better off if I was wrong. But the Zappalas have over 100 years of criminal experience under their belt. It's obvious that the Pittsburgh branch of the FBI does whatever the Zappala Crime Family/Terrorist Groups dictates to the Hooverettes. I wouldn't bet on this country on a dare. It's kaput.

They were headed for the cage until Kane's DAG withdrew all felony charges. I think AG Kane owes an explanation to the public.

Is there another scandal brewing or being covered up in the West Mifflin School District/West Mifflin Police Department?

Of course there is. And, without the notorious late Dr. Risha in the scandal equation.

They are trying to up stage the Port and MASD who are excel at covering up sex and unearned overtime pay corruptions.

The Port has one of the largest narc squads in the Commonwealth and their name to fame is getting caught cheating on overtime bookkeeping and the Senator quashed the DA'S report.

Looks like a top school administrator was involved in a vehicular accident. His wheel came off of his car and then the wheel hit another vehicle. The school administrator retreated from the car and left the scene. Pause for a moment of advice: any time a political insider is involved with a vehicle, some sort of accident and alcohol may come into play; it's always best to leave the scene, if you're well connected, a proper defense will keep you out of DUI court and not within arm's way of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. Even if you are supposed to be a role model for students, especially students who may look to you for advice on the hazards of drinking, texting and driving.

Anyway, the fix is in and besides looking like a complete jackass, it's business as usual in the corrupt MoB Valley.

I guessing the local media may be permitted to report on this topic in the Saturday edition, the slowest day for newspaper sales. By Monday, all will be forgotten.

maybe the school administrator thought he hit a black bear and run from the scene cause the bear was gonna eat him. Black bears are in heat now and on the run.

Some things I don't understand all those 16 that were rounded up, most all have plead guilty so far and the rest will to as their time comes, so what's the problem, none plead innocent... since so many had multiple counts of felonies ????? Doesn't this deserve some kind of explanation by the AG at some point ?
Any PPG reporters calling her office ? Any news stations? I think this a disgrace.

Mike:

A good friend tired to solicit the interest and help from the MADD organization in a DUI matter that harmed an entity. They were essentially useless.

A supporting case in point. Where was MADD when a well connected professional had a 2X DUI reversed by a judge to a 1X DUI?

The MADD folks had their eyes and mouths wide shut.

But some say that a person on probation cannot own a firearm? Are there any exceptions like the reverse by a judge of a 2X DUI to 1X DUI?

the judges that are paid off change the laws on a daily basis.
it's anyone's guess when the old laws are replaced by new made laws.
This is only fair since judges are human and will take a bribe at a drop of a hat.

The Porkster was once over heard that he owned the County. I guess that is what he inferred.

It's no longer inferred. It's now a fact. What is the proper protocol for us ordinary citizens, are we to start paying some sort of fee to the Porkster? Who should we report anti-Porkster sentiment to? Kind of like the Brownshirts during Nazi Germany, only we'll be the Porkshirts.

Isn't it nice to live in a world where crime pays and worthless scoundrels like Marc Gergely and Jimmy Brewster get to enjoy all the perks.
