A former state senator who left the public eye 21⁄2 years ago to take a job as a vice president at UPMC is returning to public work to run Monroeville‘s convention and visitors bureau.

Rumor?
No rumors but some thoughts.

UPMC did not derive any projected profits from including him at an inflated salary as a resource.

UPMC most likely and quietly did not offer to renew his juicy contract.

Why would he step down and take a significant salary reduction at his own volition?

He could be more comfortable working local where he is linked with the board and the standards for achievement are much lower and immeasurable.

Or, he missed the prestige, adoration and perks of being a senator and will run for the vacancy in the future. JB will be instructed by the machine to defer to the former senator.

UPMC does not want to handle too many scandals at one time. It was necessary to dump Logan.

That was probably taken from a press release prepared by UPMC. Just so you know, people don't always tell the truth.

Just for the record, I'm done with Ralph Imbrogno for now. Bill Scully is next.

Here's an interesting site that is putting pressure on the Pittsburgh meida to report on Michael LeDoux, former Serra Catholic High School headmaster.

My comments will help to explain things.

So you suspect for now then? I think the way the office was just handed over was a statement. But, if you don't have anything we may not wait and see much. Your right about most information long before apparent. I just thought you had something to start with. City hall was copying paperwork?

Thank you. No one getting help from these politicians will admit it. Convenient sarcasm and amnesia. The Monroeville politicians helped Brewster get Orie. Favors were given in a very historic denial of senator territory change. He was saved from senator district map changes.

How many connections are found out before the others are implicated? The Feds have been doing a wonderful job!

Federal Agents did just fine indicting the McKeesport BP owner and convicting the Imbrogno/Risha criminals without the assistance of the DA or local police departments.

Painting Contractor Sentenced in Bidding Scheme
http://m.fbi.gov/#http://www.fbi.gov/pittsbur...

Article - United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon imposed the sentence on Ralph D. Imbrogno, 65, of 610 Oberdick Drive, McKeesport, Pennsylvania.

According to information presented to the court, from May 2008 through March 2010, Imbrogno aided and abetted Patrick Risha, the superintendent of the West Mifflin Area School District, in defrauding the school district and misapplying a total of $94,439 in district funds. The fraud was committed in connection with the school district’s awarding of 10 painting contracts to Imgrogno’s son’s painting company, Imbrogno Painting. Imbrogno aided Risha in defrauding the school district by producing false bid proposals from painting contractors for the contracts requiring a competitive bidding process.

Answer: Nate Harper is under investigation in Shell Company contract. Same type of scheme or similar. Is this also part of the McKeesport bidding process? MASD Higher bids, good neighbors?

No question in my mind that the good neighobor school director should be questioned by the FBI on his support for the PM high bid and large up front payment. Every other school director should also be questioned.

I think the next one to fall will be Donald "The Lavender Don" Wuerl. He'll be deemed a charlatan and deported to Rome in disgrace much like Bernard Law. Zubik, Nowicki and all of Wuerl's fixers will be left to pay the piper. The Vatican will be soft on Wuerl and make it look like he was promoted. Zubik may suffer the most, followed by Nowicki and then all the others.

Wuerl was very cozy with the Masons and that may be part of the reason JB joined the local lodge. Watch for catholics which have dominated western PA for decades to begin to take a back seat as the truth emerges.

John Wright came to Pittsburgh from Worchester which was a still is a hub of dysfunctional sex freaks. Wuerl was his personal secretary for over 10 years. According to Randy Engel, the Sherlock Holmes dysfunctional catholic clerics and hierarchy, Wuerl actually resembled one of Cardinal Wright's victims.

The ultimate goal is to take down the Zappala Crime Family without dismantling the all levels of government within the commonwealth of PA.

Guys like Rendell, as corrupt and worthless as he has been, will not be prosecuted. Same for old worthless mayors, police chiefs, etc. throughout the Mon Valley. But enough people will be taken down to leave a lasting impression of regular folks. But the other scoundrels waiting to take their place, it will mean little.

I don't ever remember the coffee shop on St. Clair being closed for over a month. Looks like someone means business.

The Pittsburgh media which has less shame than the Steubenville Football team will claim ignorance of all the goings on.

I appreciate the opportunity to present my ideas.

I think one last pope will take office. Credit cards are banned at the Vatican. Money laundering was founded on several occasions.

But what do you think of the paper copying at city hall?
