The latest spectacle comes from none other than County Executive John Stoffa's right hand...and we all know who that is.
In the mist of Stoffa's admission of wrong doing last Thursday, when Stoffa stated during the County Council meeting that he will pay back the $700.00 he paid Eckerd Siemens (Misusing tax funds) to assist Ron Angle and Bernard O'Hare III in their PRIVATE litigation against the tax payers of Northampton County. He now wants to back-peddle (sending as we understand it) an email to County Council which suggest that the $700.00 is a gift to the County, and he wants County Council to vote on it during next weeks council meeting - Really!!!
First he say's it never happened. Then he say's okay you got me. Now he wants to backtrack because someone with legal knowledge told him - Dude...do you know what you did when you said you would pay?...you admitted your guilt! Dude you better do something quick.
Ironically, his best friend these day's (Bernard Ohare) had this to say in an article attacking one of Stoffa's courthouse employees: "Justice is blind, they say, but in Pennsylvania, it appears to be deaf and dumb as well."
It is quite evident that's what they think about County Council as well, but boy are they in for a rude awakening. We could be wrong but, we don't think many members of Council will fall for this one? Hopefully we're not wrong.
And then he gracefully reminds us "we recently underwent the Kids-For-Cash scandal, in which two Luzerne County judges imprisoned children in exchange for bags of cash from privately-owned detention facilities. Now, it's a 77-count indictment charging ticket-fixing against seven current and former Philadelphia traffic judges. In both cases, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court sat on its hands. One of its members, Justice Joan Orie Melvin, is herself on trial for forcing her state-paid employees to run her political campaign."
Yes, and in Norco he forgot to mention, there is "STOFFA-GATE".
Oh, by the way, we were watching WFMZ tonight and they predicted that a storm is coming. Yeah, that's right John...A storm is coming!
