Skrep is feeling lonely

“I don’t think it’s a secret that my party has abandoned me, but I still have a large following – a following that asks me every day for direction. I want to provide them with that direction.”-Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak
Poor Skrep. He continues sniping with fellow Democratic Commissioner Maryanne Petrilla and his pals Sam Guesto, Sam Diaz and Todd Vonderheid have moved on. And I doubt if he exchanges Christmas cards with Steve Urban. Now he says that County Democratic Chairman Mark Bufalino isn't talking to him and he's not being invited to Obama campaign events. Bufalino and the Obama camp both dispute that claim.
I'm not sure what he means about that large following. The way he's been talking about reassessment he might be angling to be the next Mayor of Harveys Lake.

...and some people would have thought "The Jerk" would be a more apropos Steve Martin reference.

Greg likes the basement of the courthouse. He could always stay down there and jerk off.

He failed at football
He failed as a county commissioner
He failed at maintaining public trust
He failed to keep his promises about not practicing NEPAtism
He failed his own party

I think I'm going to affectionately call him WAMU from now on: one big pig trusted with other people's money, mishandled it, and now about to self-destruct.

His party abandoned him?
He hasn't exactly been a poster boy for the party. If he seriously doesn't understand why he isn't the favorite Dem son around here he may be giving new meaning to the term 'tin ear'...I think he does and he's just trying to figure a way to try and dig himself out of the hole he's gotten himself into.
