My guess is that Brewster will be mentioned in a story by the PG reporter and posted late thursday night or early Friday morning. It's always best to ruin a corrupt politician's weekend.

Thanks for the heads up. I will start working on it.

We will see if my Daily News meds neutralize the PG truth serum.

You are correct on the former and incorrect on the latter. If you leave a topix page up and leave your computer it will still count you. Topix remembers who you logged in as if you don't clear your cookie file but once you leave all topix pages, you are no longer counted as logged in.

I'd love to see how many city hall and city employee/elected official home computers have topix on 24-7.

And, if my spouse, adult children and neighbor are viewing my big screen monitor and discussing an interesting and provocative posting the count is higher.

You could be right Clark. If only Superman were here with his futuristic vision; we would know for sure.

Then the others involved would be smart to avoid black cats, walking under ladders and I'd stay the hell away from the mirror just to play it safe!

Proved to be true when the solicitor said nothing was happening. He's loving it on McKeesport Topix as the head message junkie.

If the mayor is involved, based on the wire tap he "appears" to be, then Brewster is without a doubt involved. Everyone knows Mike was put into office because Brewster backed him. There is no way they didn't know what was going on. The machines were in plain view at Pepino's. In this day and age if you are running for office and you do not employ someone to look into who is contributing to your campaign, you're a fool.
The mayor and city solicitor are involved in spending the money. Police off duty vehicles were purchased with the illegal gambling money.

The best part of the recordings are the part where Ronald Melocchi now indicted, admits the mayor and him are close.

Ronald was allowed to do anything he wanted to on McKeesport. Plus, connections went higher up the political ladder.
Way it is

McKeesport is a ghetto, padlocks on the machines shouldn't make any difference. Will will the McKeesport illegal gambling lead to? Do the same offenders commit other crimes?

Ronald Melocchi aka Porky admitted to his friendship with the McKeesport mayor. He admitted he can do anything he wants in McKeesport, as a criminal.

Whether that was mere braggadocio or truthful commentary is unknown. McKeesport Mayor Mike Cherepko has declined interview requests. But his solicitor, J. Jason Elash, said the mayor and Mr. Melocchi were only acquaintances.
Campaign finance records show that Mr. Melocchi contributed a total of $3,650 to Mr. Cherepko's campaign in 2011 and 2012, and Mr. Melocchi's wife donated another $400."

Exactly, not only is Porky friends with the McKeesport mayor, he is friends with rep. Gergely.

Being friends with a crook doesnt make you a crook......the douchebag nozzle with the hide my ip locator is bitter and his banter in here is like listening to a child cry wolf for hours on end.

doesnt attend meetings but will post on here to get all the frustration out instead of facing people head to head to voice his old news from years ago. avoiding meetings is which this person does, why you ask?
no ballz,no backbone and would like to be in politics but cant. I still want this person to post about porky, cornell sex scandal, the delta report,the 2 x dui solicitor,the mayors new house, brewster and gergley getting kickbacks ,,,,,,,now ,lets see,i musta left something out. please refresh my memory

i know this person likes people to comment on his old posts but really, how can one boring person be so outraged and miserable in their lives i do feel sorry for his individual

LMAO!
Thats how

The friendship indicates, by wiretap, friends will laugh at the public privately in McKeesport. In addition, rep. Marc Gergely cannot be trusted, laughing at the public behind backs of residents. The wiretaps may reveal more soon, in the same manner indictments were handed down. More indictments can be handed to investigated McKeesport law breakers.

Thanks for admitting Elash is using Topix 24/7. McKeesport is finished, the investigation you promised weren't taking place led to McKeesport indictments, 16 of them to date.

Friends can be connected criminally, but the laughing at residents is telltale enough. Your "you can't prove anything" stance is a red flag.

Based on how they are all friends, no one can trust rep. Gergely. McKeesport is depleted of money. Anyone moving to McKeesport will only be over taxed and penalized for money any way the McKeesport political hounds can abuse them.

Everyone left in McKeesport will have a price to pay for the McKeesport political games.
