Liz Sichler resigns

Elizabeth Sichler was the vice-chair of the Luzerne County Republican Party until she resigned on November 12th. Party Chairman Terry Casey said she quit because "business is tough."

She is famous for finding ways to get other candidates kicked off the ballot and until recently was the right hand of Rep Karen Boback.

It looks like business is tough for her company, Priority Search Inc. in Kingston. The local papers are reporting that the Secret Service is investigating the outfit because it didn't carry out it's responsibilities and some money is missing. One the people who has been burned by this outfit is 2007 Republican Commissioner candidate Bill Jones who might be giving it another try in 2011.

Remember that Liz has not been charged with a crime, yet.

Over 5 million Dollars are currently missing. Liz Sichler has not yet been charged because Carol Musto has done everything in her power as district atty to prevent criminal prosecution. Will the republican party and those candidates she gave stolen money to return those monies to the crime victims.

Who would be those candidates she gave money to?

Do you really think Carol Musto would put her neck on the line if $5MM is the real number - where did you get this amount? $5MM would mean she's that she has a ton (approximatley $50MM) of settlements per month - not the case. Don't spout if you don't have the facts or simply note it is you sense or speculation.

Is the first comment - hang her - because she is a republican or because you feel she committed a crime?

Have you forgotten she was Dan M.'s campaign fund-raiser?
There's something to think about.

What a shame.

hang her because she is evil. hang her because she is a thief. hang her because she is part of the "corrupt" republican groupies, not simply because she is a republican.

Anyone know if there is any truth to the rumor that Dan Meuser and Sichler had some sort of business relationship - i.e. did he invest some of his own or Pride Mobility's money in Priority Search Inc.? This would be good for Republicans to know BEFORE Dan starts whatever his next campaign is. If there is nothing there, even better.

She has a history of abusing the court system for personal, political gain (2004 for Hasay; 2006 against May and Carrol). She is truly corrupt. In 2008, she was donating THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to Boback and Meuser. Seems now that the cash was stolen money. Will they give it back? The legal term for this is comingling of funds, and it is very likely that she'll do time in prison, if found guilty. This is big-time.
In the words of Rev. Wright: her "chickens, have come home to roost!!!".

we'll know it's true (regarding Meuser being an investor in Priority Search) if his mouth piece KAR doesn't refute it. Come out come out wherever you KAR.

Anona at 248 I love the Rev JWright quote we need more of it

But Someone said she is part of the republcian goons, No there is no cabal of Republcian goons they are simply Replicans who support Skrep and the dem goons. They dont challebnge the big man and he lets them rule the back mountian.

This is why i dont like bipartisianship it generally means two parties working together to line thier pockets(see pay raise)

How about an article in the times leader that mentioned her resigning and listed the other goonies, flack, sordoni etc. This article was printed but was pulled from their website. There is a lot more going on here than meets the eye. Let us be sheep no longer and let this not die because I have a feeling it runs deep, very deep. Once again, hang her.

She was NOT Dan Meuser's funraiser. God, people are still talking out of their ass. Chris, is that you? Let it go. It's over. You should be mad at Carney, not Meuser.
I was at many of Meuser's events and met Liz and the other names mentioned. Just because I keep my name out of the paper I'm not being lumped in with these people. I can guarantee you all there has never been more of a bunch of bullshit linking Liz and Meuser and his campaign and all this money. The finances are an open book. Look them up. Lazy asses.

Bob,

You're dodging the question - can you categorically deny a financial relationship between Priority Search Inc. and Dan Meuser or Pride Mobility (since you seem to be a spokesman for both)? If there is none, that's a good thing - we don't need another Congressional candidate with a scandal.

Looks like its true - no denial from Bob Kelly - self appointed Meuser spokesperson or the always present KAR.

But I think the DCCC would have difficulity in making much of an issue of it - being an investor in a business is not related to the criminal behavior. Like saying someone who owned Enron stock was responsible for cooking the books - doens't sell.

But the list of issues is getting very long.

This has been going on for years, with Liz taking money. Ask the public how many people have their credit shot due to her not paying off their liens or loans. She always thought her political connectins would save her. Go ask her former employees what happend and find out how many banks closed her accounts as they money "went bad", yet, everyone trusted Liz and can't forget those nights out at the Stadium for all of the realtors, etc. If I took that much money I sure would not be around here.
