No i does not in any way. All this does is talk about gay priests and how you think a judge let them off the hook. This is a crime that should be punishable by death because it is against a child. These are isolated situations that did occurr inside the church, and are being prosecuted to the full extent of the law. It has nothing to do with any port connections or any organized crime connections you have created in your mind.

The world's fattest superintendent
By Mike Ference
Pat Risha may be a glutton for any food not nailed down, but when a crowd gone wild compares the political power broker to the private parts of the male anatomy, the West Mifflin Area School Superintendent has but one response; to meet him “after the meeting.” That’s according to a story in the August 27th edition of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
Risha has a long and checkered career in Pennsylvania public education – and that’s putting it mildly – all in Southwestern Pennsylvania’s Mon Valley, aka Mob Valley. According to my sources, Risha wiggled out of gambling charges when a coffee shop manager agreed to accept responsibility for the crimes in exchange for his yearly salary of 20 grand at the time. The coffee shop was listed in the name of Risha’s wife and another partner’s wife, say my sources. But it was Risha who ran the place. One of my sources identified the bag man – a local mob guy and parishioner at St. Clare of Assisi Parish, in Clairton, PA. This is the same parish where former diocesan priest John Wellinger was assigned from 1985 to 1987.

For the record, my sources include a former West Mifflin teacher who also coached for Risha on the Clairton High School football team – on the team of another deMOBocrat-controlled town. Another source was a life-long resident of the Mon Valley who made rounds occasionally with the bag man described above. He also verified the details provided by the teacher/coach informant. Also for the record is the fact that there are more sources. Risha’s shenanigans are common knowledge.
Another source who knew Risha during his stint at the South Allegheny School District recalled how Risha booked numbers and took gambling bets while in his superintendent’s office. That may be one of the reasons why Risha now prefers to earn his $137,606 salary in the comfort of his Belle Vernon home. Perhaps he needs multiple telephone lines to properly conduct his regular business.
Sounds far-fetched? Not according to a former West Mifflin Police Chief who confided to me that Risha reported to a mob-like figure in the town of Glassport. Yes, still another Mon Valley mob town.
Is this the best that Pennsylvania residents can expect when it comes to educating their children – a superintendent with no Ph.D. and highly questionable degrees & credentials, according to a well-informed source? How is this possible?
Let’s take a look at Risha’s network of pals. Whatever school district is forced to hire Patrick Risha, there stands not far behind him lawyer Jack Cambest. He’s a partner in the law firm of Dodaro, Cambest, and Associates. One of the firm’s specialties is earning great sums of money for tying up school districts in litigious court battles. School districts with large annual fiscal budgets are candy stores for unscrupulous public serpents who traditionally award low-bid or no-bid contracts to friends and other associates who then kick back money to the desired parties. It’s all planned out in advance, and it’s one way to keep the right elected officials in office year after year. More on this topic at a later date.
James Dodaro is the other partner in the law firm. This is the same James Dodaro known for handing out jobs to politically connected nitwits on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Dodaro serves on that commission as one of the politically appointed chairpersons.

Continued from last post

It is a government agency labeled corrupt by a conservative watchdog group.

The Commonwealth Foundation launched an advertising campaign that shows connections between commission officials mentioned in a Post-Gazette article which happens to describe them as “the Capitol’s original godfather” and “the globetrotting chief who hired a web of family and friends.” The commission needs to go, said Matthew Brouillette, president of the foundation.“It’s clearly one of the most scandalous, patronage-laden agencies that exists.”

Dodaro, protégé of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Zappala, grew up playing with the judges children. According to author William Keisling, it was Steve Zapalla who mentored Dodaro while he attended Duquesne University Law School, next established Dodaro in the family law firm, and finally sponsored Dodaro’s appointment to the PA Turnpike Commission.

How could such high-level Pennsylvania government officials get involved with a scumbag like Pat Risha? How is it that Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. has never managed to get downwind of Risha’s stench? Maybe if we had a real district attorney, things would be different.

There is no "Zapalla Crime Family". Dodaro was not only a lawyer, but a teacher as well. So was a Ripeppi, does that make them connected? NO!!! You are the biggest fiction writer this site has ever seen. The DA and Chief Justice are very respected members of the political community. There is not "stench of Risha" anywere. Risha did a great job with West Mifflin, and his coaching stint at Clairton is stuff of legend in the WPIAL. I too have spoken to the Coach in question, and he told me exactly the opposite about his time with Risha... Question... why are you so focused on someone who has NOTHING to do with Miller and the Port?

He was MASD superintendent, helped cover up the Cornel School sex scandal, got JB's daughter a MASD job, facilitated the despicable PPM contract, hired the PPM owner's in-law at WMASD, broke bread more than once with the senator/mayor, reinstated the Dodaro law firm, fired MASD solicitor GG., Sardon rode his coat tails, got the failed Ward, who is a relative, the MASD coach’s job, and WAS INDICTED by the Feds FOR PAINTING CONTRACT BID RIGGING WITH MR. IMBROGNO, etc.

Wuerl wrote the preface to Marcial Maciel Integral Priestly Formation Book which has already been banned by Pope Benedict XVI. The word integral implied integrating the worldly with the church. The church always taught the opposite -- to detach yourself from the worldly. For those who don't know, Maciel was the founder of the Legionnares of Christ. He was suspended by Pope Pius XII for morphine addiction in the 50s. After Pius died Maciel was reinstated, because years prior he gave lots of money to Cardinal Clemente Micara.

Here is a link to a book at Amazon.com published by Mike Volpe a Chicago investigative reporter. It’s our first and certainly not final attempt to expose Donald “The Lavender Don” Wuerl. You can purchase it or get it for free for 30 days. The chapter about Donald Wuerl just begins with my name Mike Ference in bold.

I failed to mention that former Clairton Public Safety Director Bill Scully is mentioned in the book/chapter as is former Serra Catholic High School headmaster Michael LeDoux. It's not even March 1st. Congratulations Bill, you may on your way to your 15 minutes of fame.

Mr. Ference with a reaction like that you must be on to the truth. It seems like you hit a nerve.

Keep up the never ending crusade for truth and justice. This is something very foreign to the Mob Valley.

It is just twelve days until March 1 and awaiting your findings or predicted indictments.

With so much going on there's no need to make any predictions, for now. Interesting that a former security officaer for Mayor Luke is now living in a foriegn country and working on an immunity deal with the feds.
I noticed that Richard Sprague is not representing Mayor Luke this time around. Sprague a member of the Zappala Crime Family threatened to sue anyone who expressed any ideas on the seperation between Luke and his wife, several years ago.
Interesting, that a current security officer for Mayor Luke vacationed in Thailand. Thailand is so bad for the sexual exploitation of children that the catholic church could open up a treatment center there for it's wayward priests. Many catholic priests visit Thailand, like Luke's bodyguard, why Thailand, is anyone's guess.

Mr. Ference are you speculating that the wayward security officer is working on federal immunity? If your projection is accurate this may not bode well for some of those involved in Burgh City administration. They sure are not going to talk to the security officer about indicting the janitor or some clerk.

The fact that the officer is out of the country should cause some tears to stream down the legs of persons he interfaced with. Seem like the feds are quickly working toward the end of the string. Like all investigators say -- JUST FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Seems to me like there could be a few more federal indictments.
