they are both in bed with the city of Utica. Meola is a crook like a lot of other Utica polititions and the news covers it up. Any truth against the city they hide it.

It was in the OD. Buries about 4 pages in. That's that. Will never be reported on again. They must leave room for all the Carboned ads.

Because: it isn't a story! You can fault the OD for failing to report a myriad of stories exposing corruption and incompetence in Utica politics, but some low-life porking another guys wife doesn't make the grade.

Exactly! Why would being an actively deceitful ex con ever have to do at all with his job as Utica City Council president?

Here's the real reason whether or not this story has any legs and if it will be reported. What type of body does this Ashley have? Is it a smokin' body? Hows her cans...pretty sizeable?? Its difficult to imagine Meola having an affair with anyone given that he always looks disheveled and unkempt. Can't remember when he's ever had clean clothes or even washed & combed his hair. Remeber the old photo of him the OD used to run? He looked like he just woke up from a 3-day drunk.

The reason you see so much about this on Topix and not in the media is because the media is restricted to reporting stories they can prove. They canít report innuendos and gossip. Although the text messages that we have read regarding this matter are probably accurate. Unless the media can prove their validity they canít be published. People on Topix can post whatever they want. They donít need to be concerned with the facts or the truth. They also donít need to stand behind what they post. Anonymity is powerful. It lets you say what you want without making you accountable for your statements.

I am not supporting the media here. There is definitely a lack of investigative reporting in Utica. Reporters in Utica only report the easy stories. They donít have the will or the drive to hunt for the hard facts. It is so much easier to report stories based on press releases and wire copy.

Your turn Cliffy.

Thanks for the advice and adding so much to the discussion. I didn't mean to sound "hurt".

The deceitful, ex con stuff is old news but I do think that the local media should have made it a big story BEFORE the election. I don't remember hearing much if anything about it back then. Since Meola ran on the I'M A DECEITFUL EX CON platform and was re-elected, what's newsworthy about that now? OK, so he's a little weasel but knowing Utica voters, he'll probably win by a landslide the next time he runs.

Funny the way people make excuses for the guy. Only in Utica is this acceptable from an official wow. That sure takes the surprise out of Utica!
