The machine power is unbelievable and awesome They have infiltrated everything necessary to ensure uninterrupted political dominance for decades with the partnering of the MASD, educators’ union, International Village, social organizations, Viking, Teamsters, MHA, MACM, RACM, nepotism employment, election process, sanctioning of the slot machine enterprises, pay for play city employees, all pay for play vendors, etc.

The political machine is a juggernaut that no force known to honest citizens can repel. Watch the machine twist out of the Turnpike scandal and help decimate the slot machine scandal and investigation matters.

They did it with sobering up the BAC of the solicitor and completely burying the MPD O/T investigation and Cornell School Sex scandal. They also,“fixed” the Hatch Act violation of a city employee paid by federal funds while running for school board. They created a non-federally funded job for him. They cover for two councilmen and a solicitor who are scofflaws.

They are more than an awesome blitzkrieg– they are virtually unstoppable like Ghengis Khan - but then!

Not all accidents thoroughly investigated by police
On behalf of Caroselli Beachler McTiernan & Conboy, L.L.C. posted in Car Accidents on Monday, February 6, 2012
http://www.pennpersonalinjuryattorneys.com/20...
The original investigation by police of a Pennsylvania car accident involving a solicitor representing a local city council is being scrutinized. The reason for the scrutiny is because the police may not actually have thoroughly investigated whether impairment was a factor in the cause of the crash.
The city's chief-of-police has reported that the solicitor had just attended a celebration in honor of the city's mayor. The solicitor was then driving home at 1:30 in the morning when he failed to negotiate a turn and crashed into a building that was about 100 feet away from the road. The driver was bleeding from the head and was flown to a nearby hospital where he remained for at least another day.
The police chief stated that patches of ice on the road may have been a factor in this accident. He also claimed that investigation of this matter was still in progress.
What the police chief failed to say was whether any sobriety tests, toxicology screens or blood tests were conducted. If there was no administration of such tests, it's difficult to believe that any charges that the driver was impaired at the time of the accident could survive short of the solicitor admitting on the stand that he was under the influence of some substance when the accident occurred.
Fortunately, no other individual was injured in this accident. However, this circumstance does demonstrate that local authorities cannot always be depended upon in order to make a determination as to how an accident actually occurred. What if another individual is injured and no determinations are made by investigating officers as to whether the other driver was actually at fault for the accident? Sometimes only individual representation from an attorney or law firm can provide the additional resources needed so that an investigation of how the accident occurred was thoroughly conducted.
Finding someone criminally liable is one matter. Determining the cause of an accident is another.

You can't trust Elash to complete a McKeesport honest budget with the mayor Mike Cherepko either. He pled guilty to his second DUI thanks to Daryl Segina.

Trying to claim you tried to take care of the lady can only prove fruitless. Your worried primarily about your friends, criminals. The donation and the helping a woman was a afterthought. Your trying to take care of a criminal was your statement, in stark contrast to helping the woman.

Your allegations about the depth and breadth of wrongdoings are profound, arousing, and alarming.

Many of the street vibes are out of sync and sharply discount these aggressive AG and PSP investigations and indictments as old stuff, no one did anything to harm anyone, and all will get a slap on the wrist and fines. Nothing could be so many light years distance from truth and reality.

The naysayers of justice have been brain washed by the machine, elected officials who have tears streaming down both legs, and local political bias of the news media to believe that all it is over and no more indictments are on the horizon.

It may take several months for more revelations to surface on these corruption czars. The AG and PSP will dismantle the intersanctum of these corruption merchant’s sovereignty.

Justice will ultimately prevail in the Veon, Orie, and DeWeese style.

The first half of the message denies justice, then the second half promises justice. Which political McKeesport candidate are you? Street vibes don't amount to anything if you just say it without backup. Street vibes were in favor of Paul Shelly aka Sluggo and Topix votes, but he was voted out by most McKeesport residents ultimately.

Street vibes aren't truth, but I probably speak to a larger set of educated McKeesport residents. All of them expect justice, and no deals have been made or indicated. Also of note, some want to sell houses cheap and leave McKeesport. Most expect the justice will be only the beginning.

All deals of the past and news based on past performance is very revealing to current events. Your the only one crying about old news, because it shows why you are trying to scam the public today.

You set down everything said, then say the same thing in agreement. Once again, is information only special when you say it? The second half of the message mimicked everything I pointed out. What's wrong with you?

Are you the same Topix messenger saying no indictments would ever be handed out? They were, as I said would happen with others. Your street vibes indicated no indictments. Now your saying deals. With astounding evidence it's hard to foresee deals. The money is gone, pay freezes are in effect, not much politically to savor once its all gone. McKeesport is finished.

John Jason Elash never paid his IRS obligation, and probably doesn't support his family. He's very self serving.

Frustration floods McKeesport council chambers - Allegheny
Friday, May 4, 2012

With some attendees shaking their heads and others leaving the room, an air of frustration filled McKeesport council chambers Wednesday evening as city officials continued arguments on the topics they've debated for months.
After council approved the revision of a previously tabled service agreement for solicitor J. Jason Elash in a 5-2 vote, with Councilors V. Fawn Walker-Montgomery and A.J. Tedesco dissenting, council president Darryl Segina sidestepped Robert's Rules of Order by commenting on the matter after a vote was cast.

Segina said there were private reservations about Elash's appointment as solicitor, despite a unanimous vote in January. Those reservations have increased among some council members and the public since DUI charges were filed against Elash after a single-vehicle accident on Jan. 22.

"The only thing we can do, and what we did, is negotiate the contract," Segina said. "The beginning contract only stated the retaining fee (of $1,500 per month) and $75 an hour. In the one we just passed, there was more."

Elash's service agreement outlines his scope of services as defined by McKeesport's Home Rule Charter and adds a personal conduct clause that charges him to uphold the city's reputation. It notes that his employment will be terminated if convicted of any alcohol-related offenses for incidents occurring after March 1, 2012.

Tedesco asked if the contract defines whether Elash is an employee or a professional contractor, specifically asking if his services require a W-2 or 1099 federal tax form. He noted that the question was not intended to spark further controversy, but rather to clarify a matter of record-keeping that city officials will resolve in coming days.
"Council approves the solicitor, and the mayor executes the contract on behalf of the city," Mayor Michael Cherepko said. "It's a non-bidding contract ... for professional services. Council doesn't have a say as long as it's within the budget."
Cherepko said he extended a courtesy in compromising with council in the development in Elash's contract. That statement led to bickering between Cherepko and Walker-Montgomery, when he told her the matter was "nothing to smirk about."

Walker-Montgomery said the mayor didn't know what she was laughing about, and he should not call her out on an assumption. Both parties were silenced by Segina's gavel as they told one another to watch their mouths and educate themselves.

McKeesport solicitor Elash charged with DUI after crash
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
By Moriah Balingit, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The McKeesport solicitor who was badly hurt in a car crash following the mayor's inaugural ball declined comment today after being charged Friday with driving under the influence in connection with the accident.
John Jason Elash, 40, also faces summary offenses of speeding and driving without financial responsibility in connection with the crash, which occurred Jan. 22.
A blood test showed Mr. Elash had a blood alcohol content of .196, more than twice the legal limit, at the time of the crash, according to a criminal complaint.
He said today that he had not received any notification of the charges and had no comment.
Chief Bryan Washowich said Mr. Elash, seen the night before at an inaugural ball for Mayor Mike Cherepko, was headed south on Route 48 in his 2004 Cadillac Escalade at around 1:30 a.m. when he "failed to negotiate the bend" in the 700 block.
He veered off the street, crashing into a building about 100 feet off of the roadway. A passerby called 911 after watching Mr. Elash drive into the building and told dispatchers that Mr. Elash was bleeding from the head. He was flown to UPMC Mercy.
He remained in the hospital until at least Jan. 23, according to an online docket entry that indicated he had to reschedule a court date for a private client in a federal suit.
Mr. Elash will be charged by mail summons.
