I agree that is not very likely in one year or all the years he has been in control.

But that is not the major revenue stream in the Port - the revenue streams are the blow backs from vendors/contractors who over charge the Port, MACM, MHA, and purchased promotions.

How about $120,000 for a solicitor when the mayor's solicitor in Pittsburgh does not crack a $100,000. Now this should open some eyes.

Case in point: The disgraced scofflaw DUI solicitor received a $25,000 disclosure fee from MACM. For what?

I am sure you understand there is no true or substance to any of the above and all is pure fiction or speculation.

There is no corruption in the mob valley.

The IV czars should borrow some recently confiscated poker machines by the state for display and operation at the IV. After the IV is over the state can then destroy them and our public works department will dispose them as scrap for the state. Of course, the city gets to keep the scrap money for their R&R parking lot cook out fund.

This could become another revenue generator for the city like the municipal fee.

I wouldn't bet on that. But a Pa. Senator gets to write off a car, insurance & free gas that the taxpayers pay for. So typical for a egotistical, ghetto town political hack to think a plastic car will make him somebody.

Maybe him & peeper Mikey can ride in it with the Freemasons in the next parade. Look what happened to Brother Ruffing, the corrupt political hack from West Mifflin. Anything for a vote. Join now!

Any truth to the street rumor that two prominent watering holes had a state raid that removed their poker machine devices?

Nothing was in my copy of the Daily News. This is something that would not be covered up.

Rumor on the street is that an influential important and newly appointed IV decision maker is a little short with his federal income tax balance sheet.

That prothronotary web site just can not keep any thing quiet these days. Wow over $35,000!

He now joins the infamous solicitorís fraternity on how to charade the IRS and concurrently succeed in the Port with the endorsement of the former mayor and puppet council.

When are councilman DM, KS and DC going to do what is best for our beloved City and IV?

Where are you Dorothy and Ted when the City and IV gate management need you?

They are doing the same thing. They are taking money from people & nobody knows where it is going.
How can they get away with it ? Is it begging or is it a political shake-down of every person that enters. Why can't I ask them for a lousy dime or quarter ? I b needs dat monee too. F'in crooks.
You mean the 'junior' Councilmen haven't had the guts to test their 'power' yet ? Why not ?

So tell us, who is in charge of admission gate receipts & City Booth income for this year ? Less than 2 weeks away , I'm sure the converstion has come up . How about some of that bullshyt 'TRANSPARENCY' ya'll talked about. Who's watching & counting that money ? Duh , uh, er , well -- are yinz guys pullin the obumma tactics ? Can't answer without a tele-prompter in front of you. Typical Democrats, no offense to those who think they support they working class.

The Senator, who is IV Chairman, and his hand picked council/business man DC must explain gate accountability.

As for years there is no gate accountability. Just dump the $2.00 in a box and non-transparency takes over.

Yes we who attend IV are sheep and stupid to let them "process" our entrance fee.

The senator knows how erect three monuments to his honor, but gate accountability is beyond his capability.

It is for the Machine to know and you not to find out. Crush, Crumble, Destroy....beyotches.

When we have toilets that need scrubbed we'll give you a call....until then we'll treat you like mushrooms...keep you in the dark and feed you bull manure.
