Say what you want about County Controller Mary Schaff, it was good to see her take an interest in what was going on down the hall at the recorder of deeds office. In contrast, the former controller (Sue Weber) spent the majority of her time in the Millcreek Municipal building trying to settle scores with political foes.

Maybe Ed Palatella will win a Pulitzer Prize for his investigative reporting. Then a book deal and a movie. Woodward Bernstein and Palatella. Oh yeah.

So someone took a small amount of money, got caught, fired, and charged. Sounds like old Ed wants to tar everyone at the courthouse for the actions of one person.

Meanwhile, Joe Sinnott and his thugs are still off limits.

Anyone know if this person is related to local Erie running legend Barb Filutze or Erie City Police officer Geoff Filutze?

I found it interesting that there was no accountability for the cash. Would you have felt better if she stole the $150,000?

There is accountability for the cash. That's why the person was caught and fired. There is no story.

E P is just another ETN yellow "journalist".

Weber was uncovering unpaid property taxes [ going back Years] and exposing the lowlifes who would pay just enough to keep the properties from going to judicial sale.

That was published. Like her or not, she tried to do something, I know, I spoke with her. She said the accountability there is out of control.
