Brewster was given his endorsement and start for senator from Sean Logan, former representative of UPMC. Now Sean Logan is part of Visit Monroeville, reason for the announcement for Brewster on Logan's Monroeville web site.

Basically, like Rep. Gergely taking care of Ronald Melocchi aka Porky, Brewster is taking care of the Port Authority. Conflict of interest.

Typical Mon-Valley Democrat corruption . Logan got in trouble (votes) & stepped down to avoid more Dem troubles. Lil Jimmy was the next likely puppet for that position . Being from MuckSleazeport & doctrinated by Louie the Section 8 King - he is no more than another Poverty Pimp using Welfare beggars & Section 8 dollars to support & finance his bootlickers & ball-less MDC & corrupt skool bored ass kissers. Why wouldn't he want more taxes from the working class - these mon-valley Dems are no different than the career-human parasites they use to bring in 'mo Gubmint money'. Ya need a clearer explanation ?

James Brewsters told his daughter to get on the ballot. He said, "look honey just put your name on the ballot, no others are interested anymore." Easy vote winner, without competition of any kind.

Now everything Brewster and Cherepko want, she'll vote for them. Easy.

No one in McKeesport wants to see a circus with the suspender clown, Elash.

This should be a good head slap for the 11 remaining indicted and those who provided testimony under oath.

Robert Mericle Sentenced To Prison For Role In "Kids For Cash" Scandal


By Will Hagle, Fri, April 25, 2014

Robert Mericle, a builder of for-profit youth detention centers in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for his role in a scandal that found judges taking money to send youth to his juvenile detention facilities.

The sentence was handed down in a Scranton federal court around 11 a.m. ET Friday morning by Judge Edwin Kosik. In addition to his year-long sentence, Mericle received a $250,000 fine and 100 hours of community service.

Mericle was sentenced for lying about his involvement in the “kids for cash scandal,” in which Mericle paid a total of $2.1 million for judges to send juveniles to his detention centers.

Mericle is the last major player in the “kids for cash” scandal to be sentenced, which also led to the conviction of the two involved judges, President Judge Mark Ciavarella and Senior Judge Michael Conahan.

Ciavarella and Conahan plead guilty in 2009 to accusations that they had accepted money from Mericle in exchange for sending juveniles to the facilities he owned. Many of the juveniles were harshly sentenced for relatively minor crimes, such as a student who mocked a principal on Myspace.

After a federal judge voided Ciavarella and Conahan’s initial plea agreement, Ciaverella was ultimately convicted on 12 of 39 counts and Conahan’s guilty plea of racketeering conspiracy was revised. Both are currently in prison on lengthy sentences. Ciavarella was sentenced to 28 years, and Conahan was sentenced to 17 and a half years.

In 2009, Mericle also plead guilty to failure to disclose a felony, after he initially refused to admit he had paid $2.1 million in finder’s fees to Ciavarella and Conahan. He faced up to three years in prison, but his sentence was reduced as part of his plea agreement.

According to ABC News, Mericle did not actually break any laws by paying the judges, but the judges committed a crime by accepting the money. Prosecutors also argued that Mericle’s actions contributed to the corruption taking place throughout the region.

“I want to publicly apologize for the wrong that I’ve done,” Mericle said in the courtroom, according to the Scranton Times-Tribune,“I’m ashamed to be here, but I put myself here.”

Mericle’s attorneys had been arguing for probation or house arrest so that Mericle could avoid jail time, but Judge Kosik ultimately ruled a harsher sentence.

“I believe Mr. Mericle sits here in court embarrassed. He has offered no excuses and he has accepted full responsibility,” Judge Kosik said,“Since I did him no favors, I will wish him the best of luck in life.”

Mericle nailed for lying! Wow!

How about all those drug busts the student mayor proclaimed that the Daily News is not reporting to the public?

Who do you think just might be concocting an erroneous statement to play to the audience but neglected to recognize a very astute, honest, and alert reporter the audience who was unfairly insulted by a lie..

Some say and believe that the lies may have stated outside a classroom door at Cornell School when undefinable sounds were emanating from within.

They seemed to continued uninterrupted to the Versailles Avenue town hall type meeting with his favorite news reporter present who he threw under the bus with a lie about some unreported drug busts. He got caught red-faced on this one!

Who do you believe? The Porkster said he owns the City but the student mayor said that is not true. The Porkster and his cohorts operate without impunity until the PSP and AG conduct numerous raids The MPD did not participate in the raids, in fact three of their former officers were indicted. You draw your own conclusion about who lied or provided protection?

Then why did the PA 37th grand jury subpoena at least three persons with knowledge about some of those involved with the gambling but not yet indicted?

I think you may be jumping to a wishful conclusion to exonerate your self or your friends.

The grand grand jury question? Who sold the City, Police Department, MASD, and Recreation Board to the indicted Porkster? And for how much? This is the indicting and conviction question?

You say that I am wrong and you are right. Let us compromise that we are both 50% correct.

You must be one of the 23 juries sitting on the 37th grand jury if you know that nothing worthwhile was provided by their testimony.

Or, it is possible on the other hand if you know the three who were subpoenaed and they told you in their judgment they revealed nothing to harm their policitial friends and did not commit perjury.

However, it just so happens that one of the subpoenaed may not be so establishment friendly and his career future could be in balance with a pending felony. Even probation could prohibit him from owning any weapons.

I suspect and predict that this very knowledge and former insider will be swayed by the instinct of self-preservation. Hence, there is a high probability to cooperate and vanquish any felony and probation punishments. Any means justifies the ends.

I only would like to see justice fairly and equally dispensed. If indicted, found guilty, and convicted in court, I would like to see the person or persons locked up if such is within the sentencing guidelines.
