It took long enough! Too bad it doesn't include criminal, punishable by prison, though. And I won't be surprised if Dobelle found some loophole that diverts his legal fees elsewhere from his pockets.

fraud. 1. A deliberate deception for unfair or unlawful gain. 2. A swindle; trick. swindle. To cheat or defraud of money or property.

Dobelle is alleged to have blatantly misused public funds for trips that were nothing but week-long vacations with family and friends. Allegedly Dobelle frequently billed personal trips to the university claiming they were for meetings with prospective donors, and allegedly Dobelle had instructed family and friends to falsely claim they were university officials in order to gain travel authority.

What isn't criminal about what Dobelle is accused of? And when isn't it a criminal offense for family and friends to falsely claim they are university officials.

Is it a criminal offense for Dobelle's friends and family members to falsely claim they are university officials to gain travel authority?

This guy is a perfect example of how criminals protect each other when they have political protection. the power brokers get these scum suckers high level high paying jobs and when they behave criminally they protect them from the same punishment that Joe paycheck would get. It all starts in Boston and worms its way throughout the cities. The city heads send kickbacks in the right direction and have virtual immunity from just about anything they might do.

Well that is the rumor i am hearing anyway.

Rumors of corruption in politics is overly exaggerated. At least according to corrupt politicians. And there is no truth to the fact that rascalism, cronyism, and nepotism by corrupt politicians exists . As evident by the support of John O'Brien by politicians who perceive his recent trial and conviction to be a travesty of justice. At least according to like minded politicians.

And then there's the rushed up/hushed up plea deal for Michael DiCenzo and the unidentified respectable Pittsfield area businessman who shall forever remain respectable and anonymous.

Mr. DiCenzo must have a bigger member than you or you wouldn't be so jealous. Can you mother feel him when he slides it into her skank. That is a skank that has really been around town for years. Any idea how many have dipped into you mother. That is one had skank to satisfy. You mother was never respectable with lips down to her knees.
