Lawlessness & Disorder, ONLY Tony George

If you're voting Tony George simply because you want to restore Law & Order, Wake Up Wilkes Barre. This guy is already selling our city down the river. Accepting HUGE campaign contributions from city contractors, and criminals in exchange for No-Bid city contracts or political favors?
According to the Citizens Voice newspaper, Greco plead guilty to providing illegal payments to an elected official. (identified as former Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak)

So, Greco gets in trouble for buying an elected official, and is now attempting to buy YOUR next mayor!
  • NOTHING NEW, right? 
Hold the phone Wilkes-Barre, isn't this the same guy who told us during the primary that “Voters who want a fourth term of the Leighton Administration should vote for Councilman George Brown."?
  • At least Councilman George Brown NEVER committed a CRIME
As Tony is running around telling voters that he will end the "status quo", he sure isn't acting like it.

Now comes Tony's campaign finance issues: 48 so called mistakes, Tony didn't even report donations made by his campaign manager Charlotte Raup, Another LARGE campaign contributor is well know city contractor Bob Stella of Stell Enterprises who donated $2,500, was "mistakenly" reported as “Bob Francella” of “Fraculla Enterprises.”.
  • Now I get it, it's a simple mistake. After all theirs NO way Stell told Tony "I'll give you this money, but I need you to hide it, in the event Brown wins the primary, because he might be vengeful". I'm sure something like that never happened! After-all I've spoken with several elected officials who ALL claim that they can ALWAYS recall instantly who their largest campaign donor is/was, even years after the election, 
Even though our child DA swept the case of 48 campaign finance violations under her political corruption rug, NEW charges have been filed regarding yet another campaign finance violation(s).

Bill Fleming of Wilkes-Barre filed criminal charges against Tony George providing that 5 LARGE campaign signs (seen below) were been deployed by the George campaign ALL without the mandatory legal disclaimer "paid for by", as required by state law. Likely because the signs were actually paid for by Thom Greco, YES the same Thom Greco who has already plead guilty to bribing a public official(s).

Tony responded with “It’s not an issue. It would be if they were all like that,"
  • That's like telling the cop who pulls you over that, your speeding is a not an issue because you don't always drive this fast. 
George said he has more than 800 signs throughout the city and initially all of them were legal. The signs Fleming found did not have the proper information, but it was added later, George said.
  • So one has to wonder were they or weren't they legal at the time Mr. Fleming reported the 5 in question? 
If you vote for this guy thinking Law & Order will be restored, you need to remember Tony is a Phony, who is just another type of Crony! Now it's easy to see why Tony supported gangster Judge Mark Ciavarella and Kids for Cash scandal because he cleaned up that school, while taking BRIBES!Clik here to read "Tony George defends Kids for Cash Judge"

Tony George defends Kids for Cash Judge

Many folks have been asking what did Tony George say, some even defending his actions, but for the sake of argument, lets take a closer look, shall we?
  • From the Times Leader political forum 10/21/2015:
"I did support Mark, Judge Ciavarella for what he did for Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technical Center. When kids came to him, he said if you violate what he says, you’ll, you’ll, you’ll be, in front of me, and that’s exactly what he did. I have no problems with him, with the school because he cleaned up that school, and made it a safe environment for the other students in that school."

Lets reflect:
  • "he said if you violate what he says" Interesting? If you violate what the judge says, not what the law says, then you'll be in front of ME. This is a school resource officer, and former Police Chief.
  • "I have no problems with him" Understandable, and I do get it. Sometime when our friends do something wrong we still see them as friends, and want to offer a lifeline, without thinking about how said lifeline might impact the families who were directly impacted. 
  • "he cleaned up that school" NO doubt, he locked up not only the kids that may have really deserved to be sent away, but anyone who so much as spit a spitball, so I guess you could say that's cleaning it up. 
As we've seen following Kids for Cash, those children who likely just needed guidance, i.e. positive role models, or a little discipline, got painted with a crooked brush of justice, as those who may have truly deserved to be locked up. Let me ask you, think back to when you were in school,
  • Were you perfect? 
  • Did you get in trouble? 
  • Did you use profanity?
  • Smoke? 
  • Skip class? 
  • Even get mouthy? 
Not only did the actions of Mark Ciavarella negatively impact the families/children of Kids for Cash, the financial impact to the taxpayers of Luzerne County via massive lawsuits/settlements, forever tainting Luzerne County nationally/internationally, but what did this scandal do with regards to those "Bad Kids" (as those who are quick to defend Tony George/Mark Ciavarella like to refer to them)?

You know the ones who may have been in court so many times that the judges --- well real judges, may have spoken with so often that they not only know their names, but could likely tell you their eye color without even seeing them. What about the fact that those (again "Bad Kids") now got a FREE PASS, all do to the fact that this greedy/crooked/corrupt judge did the unimaginable to so many, for some of the smallest of infractions?

Now comes a former police chief /current school resource officer/aspiring mayoral candidate Tony George, who STILL TO THIS DAY "has no problem" with what a crooked/sleazy/slimy/greedy judge did, and WHY?, because the actions of that slimy judge seemed to cleaned up that school... 
  • Wait wasn't/isn't that your job Mr. (Slime Defender) George?
