I don't know how Hackett defines a couple of years.

I hear that this woman had been doing "light work" for the Hackett's for more than a decade, that's more than 10 years Chris, and it was something more than sporatic, it was quite regularly.

Well I,m sure that the truth will come out eventually,it always does.

Oh, and I also hear that Chris knows exactly where she is, seems a lot of people do.

Could be like the slow speed OJ "chase", if the authorities ever decide to fetch her.

Gosh, I wonder what little tidbits of information she could reveal?

Adios amigo, slep well.

We have 2 Republican "BOZO"'s BOTH claiming to be tough on illegal immigrants...AND BOTH OF THEM EMPLOY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! What a bunch of HYPOCRITES!

They BOTH claim they "didn't know it"...THEN HOW CAN THEY STOP IT, WHEN THEY BECOME A CONGRESSMAN, IF THEY "DON'T KNOW IT" IN THEIR OWN HOUSES & BUSINESSES???

Stick a fork in both of them, Carney gets another term...due to Hackett & Meuser STINKING UP THE JOINT!!! Can the Republicans do better than these 2 idiots???

Business leader says Hackett exaggerates role in landing firm
By Marcia Moore
The Daily Item


— A 10th Congressional District candidate for the Republican nomination is "exaggerating" his involvement in C3i's decision to open a facility in Wilkes-Barre last year, the chief financial officer of the international company says.
Luzerne County businessman Chris Hackett, who is vying against Dan Meuser for the nomination in the April 22 primary, has touted throughout the campaign his business acumen and experience in attracting new business to the area.
Hackett operates an insurance brokerage business and owns OneSource Staffing Solutions, a human resource consulting service, with offices in Selinsgrove, Williamsport, Tannersville, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton.
On the campaign trail, he has specifically cited his involvement in aiding C3i, a company that provides customer management and support in New Jersey, Belgium, Bulgaria and India, as well as United Kingdom retailer Boden to Luzerne County.
CFO: Set record straight
He repeated the claim Thursday during a meeting with members of the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce, despite recent complaints from C3i.
In a letter to the Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce last week, C3i CFO Robert Jones wrote that he wanted to "set the record straight" about who deserves credit for encouraging the company to open an office in Pennsylvania.
Jones disputes Hackett's assertion that he played a key role in bringing the company, which today employs 100 people, to the area.
"This claim is exaggerated and, while we prefer to stay out of politics, we do feel compelled to set the record straight to be sure that credit is given where credit is due," he wrote.
Hackett's deputy campaign manager, Mark Harris, responded: "Along with many others, Chris has been involved in numerous efforts through the Chamber of Commerce and Penns Northeast, to assist companies who are considering relocating to Northeast Pennsylvania.
"And Chris' own companies have created hundreds of jobs in the region.
"If C3i doesn't feel Chris' work with them was especially helpful, we're sorry about that, and they are entitled to their view."
C3i dumped Hackett firm
Jones said Hackett met with C3i officials in Scranton during an initial visit and once the company decided to locate in Wilkes-Barre, Hackett's firm, OneSource Staffing Solutions, was hired to help with recruiting.
However, Jones said, the results were "mixed" and after a few months C3i terminated its relationship with OneSource and handled its own hiring process.
"So, it is a stretch to say that Mr. Hackett was responsible in any meaningful way for bringing C3i to the area," he said.
Boden, the other company Hackett said he helped to relocate to Luzerne County, was more positive about his involvement.
Phil Tiffin, the human resources director at Boden, Friday said the company was "hugely grateful for all the help that Chris and OneSource have given us to establish the new facility in the states."

This kar creep is a symptom of the meuser arrogance that is to come. He can't see the log in his own eye.

Hey kar sweetie, lets talk about the fine(s) and the reports that became 'arcane' hmmm? Or are you just waiting and salivating for your anticipated big DC job?

Sincerly,
No dog in the fight

Where'd all the Hackett backers go?
Isn't anyone going to defend poor Chris on this one?
You're all probably hiding after ripping Spitzer a new one....
then realizing your guy is equally hypocritical...

hackett claimed that he did not turn in the illegal "susie" for humanitarian reasons. OK but he wants to be a Congressman who is a leader of this nation. So how many more illegals will he not turn over. In his business he didn't turn over any that he claimed were gone by the time the police called him. I want to help people but the simple word is illegal. So our wanna be Congressman has broken the law- once by not paying taxes on his illegal and then once agian by not turning this person in. Again the key word is illegal and this candidate broke the law twice.

Hackett's portfolio is indeed impressive; in no particular order it reads:

Pay for play with a 5k donation to Skrep in return for a 700k contract with the county...impressive.

Sponsoring a visit by El Presidente Vincente Fox, and running outside to protest the visit...huh?

Oh, and in an interesting twist, while Senor Chris was protesting El Presidente's visit, he had his very own illegal,"Susie" at home scrubbing away on his floors & toilets...ironic?

Lastly, he chirps about the businesses he has help guide to our area, mentioning one in particular, C3i, several times. One teeney problem with that, apparently the company didn't agree and felt so strongly about it they went public with their disagreenent.
Robert Jones, CFO of C3i wrote a letter claiming exaggerations (very polite term) by Hackett, and he also indicated that they had fired Hackett's company...wow!

So what do we have here? Well there are a few choices; hypocrite? mis-speaker? serial exaggerator? exploiter of illegal housekeepers?

Well in my opinion they all fit, the other republican voters in the 10th will have to decide, I've already made up my mind.

Concerning Dan Meusers company hiring illegals... Dan was not the President/CEO/or anything like that when the company did the hiring. I believe he was in the marketing department or something like that. There's a big difference between hiring an illegal for your home and having the company you are not in charge of hire illegals a decade or so before you have control over it.
