"Are they going to turn it in ...?" Melocchi asked during the recorded conversation.

"Who me? Not me," Gergely replied. "I just want to take care of you.
.
Trying to claim you tried to take care of the lady can only prove fruitless. Your worried primarily about your friends, criminals. The donation and the helping a woman was a afterthought. Your trying to take care of a criminal was your statement, in stark contrast to helping the woman.

Your words Gergely, "Who me? Not me," Gergely replied. "I just want to take care of you.(You, meaning Ronald Melocchi aka Porky caught by Operation Pork Chop for illegal actions.)

McKeesport has a reputation of protecting criminals in a private manner. Wiretap was only one means of discovery, but everything in McKeesport goes much deeper.)

(Remember, the messaging problems with city hall in McKeesport are adequate for voters.) what if they just make excuse if the same, the woman's voice message machine was broken.

We'd believe the private investigator, not Gergely for supporting illegal activity, failing to report. Why not, instead of trying to contact a woman after the fact you learned was a private investigator, report the criminal activity to The Liqour Board and AG? The only true, correct action. Stop lying Gergely. Your brother is sitting with John Jason Elash in the McKeesport city hall. Your all connected.

McKeesport is broke.

Word is the lawmaker and chief of staff has a gift coming from the AG. Maybe that's why the chief of staff is begging people for a new job. He thinks separation might help him. He didn't do real good on the stand in front of the grand jury.

All of the above, add in the liquor board should be called by concerned citizens about it. The Twin Oaks and The Viking should both lose liquor licenses. Twin Oaks restaurant and Lounge is only a couple of doors down in the White Oak strip mall from a magistrate! Utterly shameful. The Viking across from Uni-Mart in McKeesport should lose the permission to sell liquor.

How appealing, Kennedy came to McKeesport and these guys give McKeesport two black eyes!

I think the lawmaker and chief of staff should close the doors. Calling up criminals to say they are only helping the friend or should we say,'Good Neighbor' with 49 charges! Giving money to help gamblers and pretending to help a woman, but is a investigator was a after thought!

He failed to take the best possible, proper action which was to report his friend Ronald Melocchi aka Porky. The best scene is when a officer was standing next to Porky, both laughing at me not long before they were all indicted! Priceless!
