"The indictments last week by state Attorney General Tom Corbett of a sitting state lawmaker, one former lawmaker and 10 current and former Democratic House staffers may be just the tip of an iceberg, but "Bonusgate" already is the biggest corruption scandal in state government in memory."
We hope that STOFFAGATE doesn't surpass Bonusgate.
In Bonus gate it was clear that tax dollars were redirected for personal use. In Stoffagate the same is true.
If County Executive John Stoffa does not announce his resignation in a reasonable time frame (before this month is over)...We The People will have no alternative other than to pursue, for the 23,391 that supported us in our strife against our local governing body, the justice they deserve.
Do you really want to test our resolve again John?
COAF implored County Council on many occasions (and they know that's true - just watch on line) to allow the referendum question to go on the ballot, However, led by Ron Angle they defied the request. We said: okay, we have to do this the hard way, and so we did. What we did not know for sure was that John Stoffa was using our tax dollars to fight us...but we know for sure NOW!
We were deceived time and time again. Told that our tax dollars were never used to fight us...but Controller Stephen Barron verified the truth, our tax dollars had indeed been used.
Well, as far as We The People are concerned, either the Controller is misleading us, or the County executive is deceiving us. Our money is on STOFFA and Angle did divert our tax dollars to further and benefit their campaign to sell our beloved Gracedale.
Well, the truth is finally surfacing.
We implore you for the last time - RESIGN...or sleep in the bed you made.
We The People Will Prevail!
