Here come the Feds

Secret Service will review county’s debit-card use

Some county officials have admitted to debit card misuse, but they insist it was accidental.

If these guys had as many this many "accidents" with their vehicles I'm sure their car insurance would be cancelled. Well maybe not if you're driving a county provided Chevy Tahoe that you take home at night and even when you're on vacation.

From the TL: "I’m going to talk with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and confer with the FBI to come up with an investigative plan. If the information warrants it, we will move forward with the investigation.”-Robert Slama, special agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Philadelphia.

I would also suggest that the Internal Revenue Service be called in to look at this because it's obvious that these people were using taxpayer money to fund their personal expenses. The out of town trips are bad enough but how do you account for a dinner at Top of the 80's near Hazleton or Patte's Sports Bar in Wilkes-Barre?

It's about time that the Feds take a look at the shenanigans that have been going on around here for as long as I can remember.

Guesto said it was a business lunch at Patte's.

These guys are out of their minds.

Someone set it up so they could have whatever they wanted on their debit cards, and all they had to do was steer the money in a certain direction - to the campaign contributors.

There's some folks behind Skrep and Guesto - those are the ones who need to do the serious time in a federal pen.
