Brewster has a God-given right to shake down the taxpayers of the Mon Valley. He will continue to do so. PA is corrupt and this will all pass.

Learn to live with the corruption. It's the new American way.

Stop pretending city hall meeting work for the public, look at all the retaliation against the White Oak legal professional lady. Your the coward hiding behind a badge in McKeesport Shawn. Your ignorant leader beats women and you make false charges. Your selective enforcement of law is reprehensible. Don't I make you mad and tell you what a jerk you are in person enough?

Except for Red who is a colleague and friend of the well connected Porkster. Does the Porkster own the IRS also?

And, except for a city employee and city councilperson who owe over $25,000!

5. Arrest. The consequences for ignoring an IRS bill can be a lot more dire than warning letters. After sending multiple correspondences regarding an unpaid tax bill, the IRS will send a representative to your residence or business to collect payment -- typically if you owe $25,000 or more.

Continuing to avoid this responsibility can result in automatic wage garnishments, asset seizures like your car and may even lead to arrest and jail time for tax evasion.

At the end of the day, you're better off filing your tax return late than never filing it -- or paying your taxes -- at all.

Mr. Ray Rice's dream instantaneously became a nightmare once the truth was fully exposed.

Could that be a possibility for the bagman and his recipients?

Exposure by social media trumps the cover ups and stone walling by Cathy Cain and other law enforcement agencies.

Could there by some Karma here?

Speaking of scandals..........Let's give more to the Catholic Church to keep these pedophiles out of jail. That's right approach your priest on Sundays and ask where are that money is going that the
goes into the collection plate and all those envelopes that are stuffed with money so people can buy their way into Heaven. Keep giving more money for attorneys to keep these monsters out of jail . Pray to your God in the sky and ask for forgiveness for these sick twisted priests. Doesn't he forgive all? Isn't that what the Catholic Church preaches to you ? Remember 10% or more of your income goes to the Catholic Church. If you have no job, go steal the money . Then if you confess you will be forgiven of all your sins.

Pennsylvania high court weighs pivotal church-abuse case..........

HARRISBURG (AP)— The Pennsylvania Supreme Court today will begin reviewing the prosecution of a church official imprisoned over his handling of priest sex-abuse complaints.

Monsignor William Lynn, the former Archdiocese of Philadelphia secretary for clergy, has been on house arrest in a Philadelphia rectory since his conviction was thrown out on appeal last year.



Prosecutors want the state Supreme Court to reinstate it.

Monsignor Lynn has served about 18 months of a three- to six-year sentence.

He was the first U.S. church official ever charged for hiding complaints that priests were molesting children. He was the point person for those complaints in Philadelphia from 1992-2004.

Some call him a scapegoat. But the trial judge said he let monsters “destroy the souls of children.”

The Supreme Court will consider two issues: whether Monsignor Lynn can be held responsible for a victim he never met, and whether his actions were part of a larger scheme that put a 10-year-old altar boy at risk.

Prosecutors had charged him with felony child endangerment. But the appeals court said the law that existed at the time didn't cover people who don't directly supervise children. Monsignor Lynn's lawyers had made that argument even before his 2011 indictment, but Common Pleas Judge M. Teresa Sarmina sent the case to trial.

The Philadelphia archdiocese has been in the crosshairs of city prosecutors since 2002, when the priest-abuse scandal broke in Boston. Monsignor Lynn, Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua and other church officials -- accompanied by lawyers -- were grilled for days by an earlier grand jury that issued a highly critical report in 2005 but concluded that no charges could be filed.

Prosecutors tried again under District Attorney Seth Williams, who charged three priests with new sexual assault allegations in 2011 and Monsignor Lynn with protecting the alleged predators by hiding complaints in secret files. Cardinal Bevilacqua, by then frail and elderly, was a potential witness in Lynn's case but died before trial. By that time, his mild-mannered successor, Cardinal Anthony Rigali, had been replaced in Philadelphia by dynamic Archbishop Charles Chaput.

We should be thankful that our student mayor does not abuse the use of his new SUV that makes trips to the Water Front and Westmoreland county eateries. We are blessed to have him use it for city business 24/7/365. He works a lot of overtime. The county executive can now do his job without a county funded vehicle, but a third class city student mayor cannot?

Fitzgerald gives up county car, will reimburse $42,700

PITTSBURGH —Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald is giving up his county-issued Jeep Grand Cherokee and reimbursing $42,700 for more than 75,000 miles he's put on it since taking office in January 2012.

A controller's audit says the SUV that Rich Fitzgerald uses has more than 19,000 miles that are unaccounted for -- trips that should have been recorded in his vehicle log.

Fitzgerald's actions come after county Controller Chelsa Wagner, a fellow Democrat, questioned whether Fitzgerald misused the vehicle by driving it to political and personal events.

Fitzgerald didn't deny that, but says it wasn't wrong because he's often conducting county business at such functions.

But on Wednesday he voluntarily paid the county for "every single mile" he drove -- including on county business --- at the Internal Revenue Service reimbursement rate of 56 cents per mile.

Fitzgerald says he's committed to strengthening the county instead of "responding to calculated political attacks."

Fitzgerald is also reviewing the county's policy on take-home vehicles and may require some employees to use pool vehicles instead.

Wagner said she is "pleased that the executive agrees with our audit findings," though Fitzgerald denied wrongdoing.

The controller added that she is "also encouraged that he has expressed his intention to more closely examine the use of county-owned vehicles," and said, "I am certain that the conclusions reached in our audit mean more efficient use of taxpayer dollars."

"Anything that takes our focus off doing our job on behalf of our residents is a waste of time," Fitzgerald said. "That is why I made the decision to write a personal check to the county, return the vehicle and the gas card and begin using my own vehicle. There is too much work to be done for us to be sidetracked by petty political arguments."

Fitzgerald inherited the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee from former Chief Executive Dan Onorato. It had about 75,000 miles on it at the time, and Fitzgerald says he's put another 75,000 on it over the past three years

Ms. AG thanks for letting all the indicted ones walk.

The 15 walkees are planning a victory celebration for the Porkster. Too bad central control Viking cannot host the affair.

Can you return a few bucks of the seized $1,000,000 to fund the gala victory event?

I assume that all that contributed to your legal fiasco and carnival will be welcome to attend.

They have not selected a guest of honor yet, but the outstanding indicted councilman whose is a pillar of the community could be a very competitive candidate.

Do you wish to nominate any one, like some distinguished person who you found important enough to intercept his conversations and then let him off the hook.
