The photo opt at Mystic Rock golf course was a classic from last Friday in Monday's Daily Snooze The McKeesport mayor was sitting in a golf cart with the great Senator Brewster and the side where the mayor was sitting the cart was 'sagging' a bit... must of have bad springs.
Were the politicians off that day from work ? Seems like every Friday there's a free golf outing somewhere and a free meal no doubt. Must be nice.

The student mayor's American Express card is paid for by the taxpayers. What say you Mr. Soles? You should be looking out for us Mr. Soles.

Like the great socialist mooslem in the White House - our Mon-Valley Socialists seem to feel entitled . Times are bad - the Boro is a ghetto war zone - but, hey , I'm a ghetto, welfare sucking politician & I have the right to waste TAXPAYER'S money . This is the Mob-Valley - we survive off of Section 8 , welfare & Gub'mint monies . The more we spend now - the more we can beg for next year . They cannot , will not & are incapable of doing anything on their own . Get rid of them .

So what was the total attendance of this year's IV. How much gate money was made and what is that money used for? Anyone ?

Dan Vehicle will never report that and he has he support of Soles, student mayor and other council puppets. They are a team of eight.
They call me the Bagman, but I know someone that has a lot more baggage than me.

The following suggests why International Village, Palisades, Concert Series, Senior Center, Marina, and the use of city owned vehicles and the fuel depot at the City garage need audited.
What say you councilman Soles? Why are city elected officials permitted to use city resources and/or do business with the city? This could be a violation of the State Ethics Act.
DA: Fired Century III Mall manager stole $51K
By Patrick Cloonan
Monday, Dec. 15, 2014, 9:15 a.m.
Century III Mall's former manager is free on $25,000 bond pending court action on charges that he stole more than $51,000 from the West Mifflin shopping complex.
John Sabino, 51, of Wexford spent $67,121.90 at Rivers and other casinos, according to an affidavit by a detective in Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala's office.
The charges announced Monday prompted West Mifflin Mayor Chris Kelly to say Sabino “fed us a pack of lies” during his conversations with the borough.
“It appears that the only thing he was truthful about was his name,” Kelly said,“which I waited to see on the affidavit of arrest.”
Kelly said West Mifflin police conducted an initial investigation, then turned the matter over to Zappala's office. According to an affidavit, West Mifflin Detective Sgt. Tony Topolnak said Century III Mall bookkeeper Dinean Benach “discovered irregularities concerning voucher request forms and corresponding checks payable” to Sabino.
The affidavit prepared by DA's office detective Jackelyn Weibel went on to say Sabino had 12 checks totaling $45,700 made out to himself for events scheduled at the West Mifflin mall.
“(Sabino) created fraudulent payable vouchers for events purportedly scheduled to occur at Century III Mall,” according to Weibel's affidavit.“These events never occurred or the vendors billed the victim company (Century III Mall PA LLC) directly.”
Century III Mall PA LLC is the holding company established by Moonbeam Capital Investments LLC, which bought the mall in May 2013.
Sabino was hired as general manager in January.
On May 6, Sabino allegedly transferred $5,400 from the mall's accounts into his own account.
“(Sabino) subsequently utilized these funds for his personal benefit, which included 159 ATM withdrawals and purchases made at casinos (totaling)$67,121.90,” the affidavit said.
Through a spokeswoman, Rivers Casino declined comment.
Moonbeam senior vice president Shawl Pryor said his company did not want to say or do anything that interferes with the ongoing investigation.
Sabino turned himself in and had a preliminary arraignment Thursday before Magisterial District Judge Richard D. Olasz Jr. in West Mifflin.
Zappala spokesman Mike Manko said Sabino was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing.

Will the City issue a W2 to Dan Vehicle for all his city services?
Will Dan Vehicle pay his earned income tax and business privilege taxes on his catering and sales at International Village?
#585 Dec 17, 2014
bankruptcy is an option to clear all debts,,,,,,,,,,but there might be a more sensible approach........
think for a second..........
#586 Dec 17, 2014
Debts would be cleared via the liquation of assets arrangement but not if one is qualified for reorganization arrangement.

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams filed criminal charges against two state lawmakers from the city Tuesday, but his most scathing comments were aimed at Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane.
Williams and his staffers slammed Kane at several points in their press conference Tuesday for not only failing to pick up the trail of a "press-and-play" public corruption probe, but also for going out of her way to say that probe was tainted by questions of race and entrapment.
The district attorney went further, asserting Kane had done a disservice to the criminal justice system in Pennsylvania by "pouring gasoline (of racism) on the fire" without any tangible evidence to support it.
"If anything was flawed, it was not the investigation," Williams said. "It was the internal review (of the sting case) that the Attorney General conducted."
Never elect a woman to do a man's job !!!!!

And Calamity Kane will let the Porkster walk like his 15 cohorts. I am not sure who is the criminal here but I am starting to believe that he not from the Mob Valley.
I think you may also mean to never elect a tainted woman to do a man's job. DA Seth Williams sure knows how to do his job. I hope he indicts Calamity Kane next for abuse of authority.

SCRANTON — Pennsylvania’s Attorney General is seeking a divorce from her husband of 14 years.
In a complaint filed Friday in Lackawanna County Family Court, Kathleen Kane says her marriage to Christopher J. Kane is irretrievably broken. They have two children.
Kane spokeswoman Renee Martin termed the situation a private family matter. Martin didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press on Saturday.
This has already been a tough year for the 48-year-old Kane.
She led an investigation of a government email porn scandal and took heat for quashing a probe of lawmakers who allegedly took inappropriate gifts. According to her husband Kathleen is soft on crime and caves in to corrupt power.
A grand jury is also looking into whether Kane’s office violated secrecy laws by improperly disclosing information to the Philadelphia Daily News.
#594 Dec 27, 2014
Her husband is correct. Calamity Cane should be investigated, indicted, convicted and incarcerated.
#595 Dec 27, 2014
I would immediately indict and incarcerate her just like the Ories,
She is lucky that she is a Democrat and not a Republican like the Ories.

How long will the cover-ups hold up?
#597 Thursday Feb 19
Screw Porky . When will the State or the IRS follow the money trail from IV ??
#598 Thursday Feb 19
I think the legality of Dan Vehicle being paid by the City for Palisades services and his operation of his business at Renzie Park should be looked at by the IRS, DA, AG, and Auditor General.
The IRS should garnish his wages for that over $170,000 owed.
