I got a brilliant idea how about we let Mr. Leggio spend his money how he wants and we focus our attention on true dirtbag criminals. Last time I checked the Inland Empire is having a rash of metal theft, why don't we use the money to investigate Mr. Leggio on a task force to stop these tweekers committing these thefts.

Mr.Leggio can spend on what he wants such as supporting his local church, donating for youth sports, but not on campaigns. If he wanted to spend more money on politicians he supports, he could buy an independent expenditure where there would be no limit instead of the 3600.00 a person limit per person.

Leggio is a respectable guy, unlike the majority in this arena. One problem is that the politicians he has helped can be compared to starved dogs, unyielding in persuit of dollars and the status of becoming an "elected". These ravenous dogs play "friend", urinate on themselves and ask for more support over and over and over again.

Looks like an election year. The other side always tries to smear at election if they thing their going to lose. The Republicans are the only ones tring not to raise taxes the other side ones to tax us out of our homes. Democrats keep talking about changing prop. 13. They do not want seniors to be able to stay in their homes they need money if there homes were sold they would have money. This is election 2008 the biggiest tax increase in California History maybe the whole Country if the Democrats get in.

I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN MARK AS A GENEROUS SERVANT OF HIS COMMUNITY WITHOUT BEING A PUBLIC SERVANT. WE NEED TO REFLECT ON THE CONSTRUCTIVE PROJECTS AND FUND RAISING EFFORTS HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN INVOLVED WITH. WITCHHUNT ON OUR TAX DOLLAR HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD.
And so it goes

I agree 100%. If they're going to go after Mark then they also need to look into their own backyards. I'm sure there are PLENTY of skeletons buried there.

I've known Mark since he was a little lot boy for his dad.Mark was handed everything to him by his dad. Mark has grown up to a young man thinking he's a person in the Mafia,He's a phony,on the other hand his brother Chis is more down to earth.

Very true. Mark would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I can't believe there aren't more pressing issues in Riverside/ San Bernardino counties.

Un bull eve abull ..If one of these peoples children was ever born into an ICU unit and they find out that the reason parts of the facility are the as good as they are because of the large amounts of money Mark and his surrounding people donate I'm sure they would drop this crap. I say he is the best of the best when it comes to the community he lives in and helps support.
