Report: Manzo hired beauty queen for sex

When Angela Bertugli landed an internship with Democratic state Rep. Bill DeWeese in the summer of 2004, it looked like the start of big things for the small-town beauty queen who was distinguishing herself in her studies at Washington & Jefferson College.

Later that summer, the political science student intern met DeWeese's powerful Harrisburg chief of staff, Michael Manzo.

A grand jury report released this week said on their first meeting Manzo and Bertugli shared drinks, and later had sex.

Your college daughter gets a job with a friend of the family and his chief of staff pays her for sex like she was on the Las Vegas strip and your buddy knows nothing???

Until this country stops treating Politicians like Rock Stars, they are going to continue to behave like Rock Stars. We need representation, not a bunch of coddles wannabe's in govenment. We need to take a stand. These BAD BOYS need to be put out on the street IMMEDIATELY upon proof of their wrongdoing - not months and months after the issue has been argued to death. this country is becoming a mockery to the outside world mostly due to our SO CALLED LEADERS.

Why were Veon and the others "perp" walked in cuffs before TV cameras, and PA's felon-judge-in-waiting Mike Joyce hurried into the court house out of public view, no cuffs, and no bail? Justice delayed is justice denied.

If I were to go to Harrisburg, I am sure none of the Managers at Mc Donalds will give me a look, let along any chief of staff from anywere. And I must tell you I am very pretty by any standard. Is not envy talking? Shut up your mouths. M.Fs.

Editor: The purpose of this letter is to rescind the multiple accusations and negative remarks I have made at Scranton City Council meetings regarding Daron Northeast. The statements I made were misleading, malicious and without merit.

Among the false allegations I made toward Daron Northeast were:

I stated that Daron was not in compliance and that it exploited loopholes to get the company up and running. Daron Northeast followed the proper guidelines to start its manufacturing operations in the city of Scranton and did nothing to exploit the city or the zoning officials. Daron submitted all the proper applications and received all the appropriate approvals to begin its operations in 2003.

I also stated that Daron Northeast violated local zoning ordinances 30-some times. I had and still have no basis for that accusation. To my knowledge, there is not one existing zoning ordinance being violated by Daron Northeast at this time.

I have accused the city administration of protecting Daron Northeast and lining its pockets as a result of that. I have no basis for that accusation whatsoever. Daron Northeast has followed all the proper channels and guidelines in establishing its business within the city limits.

My statements accusing Daron Northeast of causing long-term lung damage as a result of Darons operations and operating illegally polluting the environment and killing residents were made recklessly and without any merit. I have no reason to believe that these statements have any truth whatsoever.

For these reasons, I am hereby retracting the above statements that I have made about Daron Northeast.
