Mayor calls Parking Attendant a “Thief”

Now that’s rich…. King Lie-A-Ton (known city gas thief) having the nerve to call city parking enforcement attendant Walker a thief, after a Price Chopper employee called the city, and requested a sting be set up, which later found that Walker was pilfering change from the meter collection, and turning it in for cash at the Edwardsville Price Chopper according to the WBPD.

 After all Leighton was pilfering gas from the city pumps for years, and nothing happened to him.

Well unless you call the taxpayers billboard something.

After nearly $4,000 went missing, and nobody at city hall noticed. One has to wonder if not for the actions of the honest hard working Price Chopper employee, would Walker have ever been caught?

Is anyone minding the store in Wilkes-Barre City?

Lie-A-Ton's exact words: “I am extremely angry and disappointed that a city employee was found stealing government funds,” Leighton said. “As mayor, it is imperative that I can trust all city employees to perform their duties in a legal and professional manner. The actions of this particular individual are not a reflection of all city employees. The City of Wilkes-Barre has good, trusted employees and this incident should not tarnish the image of the law abiding individuals who serve the city.”

HA HA HA HA: "As mayor, it is imperative that I can trust all city employees" he said, How about As mayor  it is imperative that we (the taxpayers) can trust YOU!!!!

FREE Vacation Time

Wake Up Wilkes Barre has learned that City Controller: Kathy Kane, and City Councilman: (Bobblehead) Bill
Barrett are in Austin TX, soaking up the sun, and posting their escapades on Facebook, while you the taxpayers, pay for their lavish trips. Trust me they fly FIRST CLASS, and NEVER stay at the Motel 6….. Then there is a meal allowance, even though the National League of Cities provides meals.

For those of you who don’t know, Wilkes-Barre City has a long standing tradition of sending city officials, (several at a time) on taxpayer funded junkets, known as the National League of Cities.

Now don’t get me wrong many, many other cities also send city officials, such as Scranton, and Hazleton, should they choose to go (BUT on their OWN dime).

YOU the Wilkes-Barre City Taxpayers, year after year, pay for this utterly useless junket (well to the average taxpayers it’s useless). To the corrupt city official, it’s a chance to vacation in the host city, (this year Austin, TX), make friends in high places, all FREE, well FREE for them.  These trips usually cost the taxpayers thousands each year, and to date, nothing notable has resulted. Well except the bill.

Is it really any wonder the city has gone from $60 Million to $130 Million in debt under this corrupt regime?

Four More Years, of Hell

As stated by Wake Up Wilkes Barre months ago, King Lie-A-Ton will seek a 4th term.

Apparently he hasn’t screwed over the taxpayers hard enough yet, or perhaps he found out that a few of you, and you know who you are, simply haven’t felt his wrath yet, so he will require an additional 4 years, to screw you too.

It is rumored that his campaign slogan with change from “Experienced Leadership” to “I need four more years to cover my tracks”.

For those of you who don’t vote for whatever reason, please remember this, without you there are only two types of voters in Wilkes-Barre,

Type One: Those that vote for corruption: Likely because they in some way benefit from this corrupt regime. Examples: Family member works for City, County, School District, or contractor of any of those, or they are simply On The Take themselves.  

Type Two: Those that vote against corruption: Likely because they are good, honest, taxpaying citizens, who are not politically connected, and hate seeing their city become the cesspool it has become under The Lie-A-Ton Regime.  

TRUTH: Unfortunately corruption has the majority, and has for some time. Regardless of the above Type One or Type Two, neither side is able to attract the other side’s voters. Sure there are one or two uninformed voters mixed in who simply don’t know who they are voting for when they go into the polls, but that number is so small it wouldn’t matter how it shifted.

So if we truly want to change Wilkes-Barre we need to Wake Up Wilkes Barre, by getting to the non-voters, and making them understand, that we (Type Two Voters) are outnumbered, and need them to step up, or shut up. They CANNOT just sit and bitch on Facebook, they MUST vote this crooked, lying, gas thieving, tax raising, bastard out of office.

Just a few Lie-A-Ton Highlights:
  • Gas Gate: Mayor Leighton used city owned gas for his personal use, that is still under federal investigation.
  • Security System Gate: Mayor Leighton, and buddy J.J. Murphy had $3,000 home security systems installed in their homes, and billed the city for not only the systems, but the $30 per mo monitoring service (until caught that is)
  • Parking Authority Gate: Mayor Leighton and J.J. Murphy tried leasing out the parking authority for quick cash, that resulted in hundreds of thousands in fees, and an ongoing federal investigation.  
  • Hired his own kids: Mayor Leighton used his summer jobs program to hire his one children on the taxpayers dime.
  • Doubled city debt: The city was nearly $60 Million in debt when Leighton took office as mayor, as of this months refinance the city is now estimated to be over $130 Million and rising. 

Now onto Lie-A-Ton's election strategy 
  • Democratic Primary: Lie-A-Ton vs. Tony George? No contest, so ask your Bobblehead fried George Brown to run, and have him ask his buddy/neighbor Brian Kelly to also run. WHY?  Remember the Two Types? Corruption votes for corruption or in this case Leighton. The others will split between George, Brown, and Kelly, allowing Lie-A-Ton to sail to victory. 
  • November General Election: If Lie-A-Ton is facing a true Republican challenger he would likely encounter a problem, but as luck would have it, Bobblehead Buddy Kelly is (in his words according to the Citizens Voice): "Kelly said he would investigate a possible write-in campaign on the Republican line", Hum, I wonder why?

Mark My Words, and for the love of GOD
