You will PAY for exposing Gas Gate

You may remember Let them EAT New Cars where Wake Up Wilkes Barre published part of an anonymous email from a citizen who said they overheard The King grumbling about the exposure of Gas Gate.

In that email The King was quoted "So they think their smart do they, well I will just go buy everyone new cars. Let’s see how they like paying for that"

As usual The King responded then with “Wake Up Wilkes Barre couldn’t be more wrong”, yet in The TimesLeader article W-B mulls action over Centax delays, here is the Purchase of a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee at a cost of $27,482 with Liquid Fuels fund. The vehicle will be used by the city’s Department of Public Works.

This extravagant purchase comes on the heels of The Kings loss of his so called “crowning achievement” when Standard & Poor’s downgraded the city’s A credit rating to “credit watch

This Car Cost YOU $27,482
  • Why now, when our credit rating has been downgraded, and our borrowing ability seems bleak?
  • Why such an expensive vehicle?
  • What does DPW need this for?

Could it be that someone who was recently caught on camera by Wake Up Wilkes Barre taking City gas for his own personal use is now trying to punish all the darn folks who keep speaking out?

Wake Up Wilkes Barre



  1. This Jeep may wind up being the Kings chariot. When was this vehicle bid out, and who were the bidders????

    1. It was not bid! City told a resident it was a Costars buy!
