Another Day, Another Federal Subpoena


OVC has confirmed that Judge Mike Toole's tip staff, Thomas Marino has been served with a federal subpoena with regards to the ongoing corruption scandal in Luzerne County. An independent source familiar with the Wilkes-Barre jurist has corroborated the Times Leader story which appeared online today.


OVC wrote a few months ago that rumors were abound that Toole had come under suspicion from his days as a solicitor to the Wilkes-Barre Area School District. Two members of the Wilkes-Barre school board have resigned, including board president Jim Height. Brian Dunn has also resigned.


Height pled guilty last month to federal corruption charges, and Dunn has been charged federally, also.


More to come in the future.

Did you read the shit that spewed forth from out republican nominee for controller's mouth? Here it is:

The Controller has input at all meetings regarding the amount of money that is needed to balance the budget and is responsible to inform the Commissioners if this type of decision will directly affect the "Bottom Line" The Controller is a very important voice regarding the decisions that are made at the Commissioner meetings and needs to give quarterly reports so the Commissioners can be informed regarding spending and also reports to the Budget Director to inform them as well of any effect that this KOZ decision will have on the amount of income that will directly affect the taxpayers because of the need to increase taxes because of lack of tax revenue from properties that were producing tax income into the County Treasury.
