I find Hobo Jim's lack of integrity to be quite disturbing. One should not ho his/herself out to make a buck. Hobo Jim, you are sounding a lot like Bella Toni. Please consider the negative influence that you are having on the younger readers. Half of us are already in debt from all of these pay sites that certain thugs post here. Prothonotaries and ethics sites are a quick road to poverty.

Let us hope that those offices are the quick road to prison for certain elected officials in McKeesport and MASD.

Repeat from White Lightning :

Let us not forget about sex in classrooms.

Thumbs up on that. And more especially the spineless, ass-kissers that failed to do what was proper because they are owned & controlled by the sleazy MDC & the Teacher's Union.

Unless you're unsure of whom I am referring to , that would be the ' McKeesport Area School Board'.
They just sent a message saying,'we have no class, no morals & no principles , don't send your children here .'

MASD and the City are not as vigilante as WMASD.

MASD did not conduct a private an investigation like West Mifflin School District did into the illicit affairs of the late former superintendent and a former school director. I commend the WMASD authorities for hiring this outside firm and hopefully following up on it to the state or federal law authorities.

MASD internally investigated the Cornell sex scandal and covered it up with the teachers union. One teacher in a public document on the Prothonotary’s website alleges she was assaulted. And MASD never filed ANY CHARGES? The other four participants walked.

City Council President covered up an opportunity to try to find the sources of 2,000 tons of garbage billed to the city. Why?

It more than rings a bell - it screams of pay for play.

According to public campaign finance records Nickolich Sanitation contributed to:

Jim Brewster $1,750 on 8/2/10

Mike Cherepko $725 on 10/14/10

In addition Jim Brewster’s Campaign contributed a total of $8,525 (i.e., on 2/18/11 and 10/13/10). I guess Mike is indebted to Mr. Brewster somewhat.

I see says the blind man!

Is a total of $2,475 from Nickolich Sanitation enough to eject the controller and slow down the City’s investigation of trash accountability?

This has to be a play for Ray's investigation?

Pay for play? Were the contributions illegal in any way? Don't current vendors all contribute? Havent they contributed all along? Didn't Nickolitch give to Tedesco and McLaughlin as well? Better do more accurate research! Won't find contributions to Rege and AJ on finance reports, maybe they were cash contributions made in person! At least those noted by you were on reports and legal, if cash given and not reported- that's the problem. Did Joe Orie (Biggs Sanitation) give any funds to Segina on record? Heard they met at least twice before primary? Did Segina go tell Tom Clark he better give or be on outside if Segina won? All rumors like the rest of the crap here! Not on any side, just want machine represented!!!

But if the politician's favor is bought by vendors, it is unethical. Declining to investigate a campaign contributor when there may (and I say "may") be impropriety is not serving the city's best needs.

You are correct contributions are legal and I never implied otherwise. I just wanted to corroborate the suspicious correlation between contributors to MDC endorsed candidates and large contracts. There is no need to list them here because they are publicly available at the County and State campaign contributions websites.

I did a quick review of Tedesco’s, McLaughlin and Segina’s publically reported campaign financial statements. I could have missed it, but I do not recall any reported contributions from Nickolich Sanitation. If I missed it, I do indeed apologize to you. I contend my research is accurate on the endorsed council president and mayor, but may be incomplete for other candidates.

With respect to your unfounded insinuations that McLaughlin, Tedesco, and Segina received cash (off the books) political contributions, I would counter that you could extend that speculation to ALL CANDIDATES.

The real issue is not the correlation between contributions and successful vendors, which is legal. The underlying matter is whether the contributions were make by vendors by their own volition or illegally solicited by city employees (direct W2 or independent 1099 employees) on the clock? The HRC and other laws frown on city employees being involved in political affairs.

Actually, the HRC FORBIDS political activity by city employees and FORBIDS city elected officials from soliciting any contributions from the rank and file.

Yes current vendors do contribute, but........

I did not know that contributors Elash, Pittman, Wasowich, Lust, Rost, Dice, Gobbel, Adams, Coulter, Logan, Gergely, Kortz, Zappala were vendors?

Gergely, Kortz and Zappala (you conveniently forget Brewster) are all elected Dems who more or less HAVE to donate to the endorsed (chuckle) candidate. It's the old you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours.

Elash, Pittman, Lust, Rost, Dice, Gobbel, Adams and Coulter all benefit financially from doing something for the city and are tied at the hip to Brewster.

Logan endorsed Brewster so he may as well support his golden child as well.

Which Washowich are you discussing?

This crew is all indebted to the MDC Chair Brewster so their support of the watcher isn't worth spit.

It will be interesting to see who Ford Business Machines has or will contribute to at MASD. Remember, they are the group that Risha brought into West Mifflin. Who on the SB had the strongest Risha ties?

It shouldn't be too hard to figure that one out.

BTW, any smart vendor would hedge their bets and contribute to all candidates who ask them to. Their money should not buy them influence but let's live in the real cesspool of politics. It does.

Like the $13,000 the Tedesco family contributed to Corbett to ensure that phone calls were returned?

This was reported by the news media.
