there is a paper trail. When one cashes that check, the receiving bank's routing numbers are encoded on the document, along with a lot of other information.
and thorough investigation has shown that Foltz did NOT end up with any embezzled money. Nor did his widow. We seem to agree that someone inappropriately ended up with some EIT money, and that Foltz
could have answered a lot of the question as to where or to whom it went.
So, so far, there is NO reason to exclude consideration of local leb cty EIT collectors and other public officials as we try to figure out where the money went.
My thoughts EXACTLY!
The longer this goes on, the harder it is to cover it up. "Someone" thought it was going to be a lot easier to convince the public to pay back the 5 million.
When threats of litigation didn't phase or scare EVERY overpaid district or township it put a little snag in the cover-up.
Lebanon County may be made up of sleepy
little towns but that doesn't mean the people are stupid or scared. The EIT Committee or whomever is coaching them from behind the black curtain, woke the sleeping lion.

Now they've become stage producers. I doubt the "trial" will be up for a Tony Award.

The more they try to convince us, the convincing they become.

I don't think they're all that smart.

Does anyone know if any of the current EIT Exec. Committee members or the GOB (Good Old Boys) from the past EIT board were or are connected to PNC in any way?

good point. But how can that be found if the checks were cashed by Foltz. Cash is hard to trace. Sure wish dead men could talk.

Its also important to inform the public of the pattern of withddrawals made from that account. The timing and amounts withdrawn may show a pattern that leads to other participants in this scheme. For example, did a lot of cash withdrawals occur right before these municipalities had audits conducted each year? or right before April 15th? or school vacation or Xmas?...

If they are alleging hanky panky with the account, give us the details. LDN reporting sux--never objective, never substantive, never accurate...

LDN should do a complete report of the entire timeline for this hol mess...Starting back to when Foltz was alive...Then, perhaps someone could re-examine his death...and then go from there...Wouldn't that be informative..
