RAPE !!  (Kings College  Wilkes-Barre, Pa)

ALLEGED VICTIM = KING'S COLLEGE (Wilkes-Barre, Pa) FEMALE DORM STUDENT
ALLEGED PERPETRATOR = 60 YEAR OLD KING'S HEAD OF SECURITY (resigned in disgrace) and FORMER POLICE CHIEF OF WILKES-BARRE, Pa. 
MONSTROUS COVER UP = DIRTY "FATHER RYAN" AND KING'S COLLEGE. NOTHING LEARNED AFTER PEDOPHILIA?

FACTS...  Pieces that connect...
- Gerard Dessoye resigned (2014) as Chief of Police in Wilkes-Barre Pa.
- Hired (2014) as Security Chief at King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
- King's College was repeatedly warned (see below) about Dessoye's corruption, alcoholism, and "trouser issues" before and after the hiring.


- Gerard Dessoye forced to resign (2016) as King's College (Wilkes-Barre, Pa) Head of Security 
- Copulation (SEX) alleged to occur between Dessoye and King's College female student. 
- Alleged Location = KING's College Dorm room
- Alcohol alleged to be present
- Female student alleged to shout "NO!!"  STOP!!
- RESULT? At this point alleged to be another "garden variety" Luzerne County Cover up to include KING's College

Advice to King's rape victim... get a trial as far away as possible from Luzerne County corruption... and then sue King's College so that they are publicly shamed. Then retire off your jury award.



Father Ryan President of King's College   Ongoing cover up of alleged Gerard Dessoye (60 year old Head of Security) rape of female dorm student. Holy water? In reality is sewer water. Lackey to Leightons and Dessoyes. It is amazing how priests' collars and silly costumes continue to dazzle and mislead the flock. Beer and bingo anyone? (Find that in New Testament!)




This is a blog. It is meant to arouse passion. I apologize for any offense to good hearted Catholics and good willed KINGS alumni. Counted among my dear friend are KINGS alumni Vito DeLuca (honest DA candidate), Mike Pasquini ("Crimson Lion" owner), and the socially conscious Tedd Max.  This is about the sanctity of the Catholic community and the security of its students. Something very serious happened at KINGS Ciollege with Gerard Dessoye. Cover ups fester problems. Identity of issues ultimately makes them more manageable. Like the pedophilia cover ups, Father Ryan's most prudent move would be to take a strong public stance or abdicate his position to a person of more integrity and courage.

The blog post (below) was sent 2 years ago... hmmm... was I right on the money? I have the the E mail I sent to King's warning of this hire. They ignored me. Dumb.

"KING's does not want you to see this. But they know what you are about to read. Several activists made King's aware of the perils of taking on Gerard Dessoye (Head of Security, former WBPD Chief) as a "gift" to the city of Wilkes-Barre in exchange for Leightons' scams and/or secret deals. In fact activists have notified other employers who listened to our concerns and did NOT make the Dessoye hire.




Gerard Dessoye


Both Leighton and Gerard Dessoye are alcoholics. "Father" James Ryan is a very, very dishonest man. Bad trees bear bad fruit and I do not think King's will profit from this man. If you lay down with pigs you will get dirty and your reputation will suffer. Holy water can never take the place of integrity.

PARENTS OF KING'S COLLEGE:  I suggest you question the hire of Gerard Dessoye. Do you think KING's actually hired the best man for the job? If Dessoye was using heroin with Catherine Meehan (who spent time in NY prison for stabbing a fetus)... why do you think this behavior has changed? Given that the alcoholic Gerard Dessoye was enabled and just handed a job why would he have reason to quit any addictive behavior? Corrupt cronies have always covered for him to include his brother Mike Dessoye in the courthouse who knew all of what you read below (or he is the worst detective in history).

Given that King's administration knew of Dessoye's deficiencies and hired him anyway... they have opened themselves up to a massive lawsuit if there is a serious incident at King's and Dessoye is impaired. Dealing with the devil brings consequences.  

It would seem to me that the minimum requirement is that the Head of Security is clean and sober. ... but that would make too much sense!!

Described below is just part of Dessoye's wide scale corruption. He was also a key part of "Cars for Cash"...  the massive auto theft scandal led by Leo Glodzik. He allowed cop John Majikes to ride an illegal car for more than a year which may have a tie in to the Credit union scandal and the suicide that occurred. 

Though my pereception and relations with some law enforcement agencies has improved... I stand  by what I wrote a few years ago.

Salvantis and Dessoye....



==============================================
"GREAT WALL" OF CORRUPTION = For more details on any one person... Google "WB Truth" and "Name of person" for more info.


LOCAL CORRUPT  PLAYERS:   "CORRUPT" is minimally defined as officials who know of crimes of other officials and fail to report them or press charges.

Gerard Dessoye former WBPD Chief & Head of King's Security (see pic above)   Alleged rape perpetrator. List of cover ups too long too list. Former boyfriend and enabler of the "heroin house honey." Dessoye stoked the engine that ran "Cars for Cash" (LAG Towing car theft empire).



Mike Dessoye Head of Luzerne County Detectives   The County puppeteer... the granddaddy of cover ups. Widely known that he (as father figure) directs the "Child DA" (Salavantis) in her duties. When do you ever hear of County Detectives doing honest work for their $100,000 salaries? 

Stefanie Salavantis Luzerne County DA   The master puppet. "Played" by all her "father figures." Tossed many DUI's from friend's law firm. Had her own DUI tossed by Pennsylvania State Police. This corruptly influenced DA election.


Former Mayor Wilkes-Barre Mayor Thomas Leighton   His crimes and cover ups are legendary. Too many to list. Partners in corruption with infamous JJ Murphy, Leo Glodzik, Father Ryan, and the Dessoye brothers.



Former Mayor (Wilkes-Barre, Pa) Tom Leighton filling personal vehicle with city gas

Sam Sanguedolce Assistant DA   In his role as Asst DA was active in tossing out DUI's from his law firm. Chronically has driven drunk. Covered up for DA DUI where he was passenger along with State police. Alleged alcoholic His car is photographed in "hidden" spot at BREWS BROTHERS BAR 3-4 AM weekdays. He likes to take skanky women out late. And he is responsible for disseminating justice?




Former Mayor Wilkes-Barre Mayor Thomas Leighton   His crimes and cover ups are legendary. Too many to list. Partners in corruption with infamous JJ Murphy, Leo Glodzik, Father Ryan, and the Dessoye brothers.

Former Mayor of Wilkes-Barre, Pa Tom Leighton

James Degnan Captain Pa State Police Wyoming Barracks   Was Captain of State police when DA Salavantis crashed her car (into pole) as part of a DUI. Engaged in complete cover up before the DA election putting DA job in hands of "child" (Salavantis). Reputed to be disrespected by State Police across the state.



Chief Luzerne County Judge Dick Hughes   He was actively campaigning with Salavantis when she had DUI. He kept silent. He had the audacity to brag that he had ebdorsement from (highly corrupted) police. Spent the most to win election... almost $200,000. "Disingenuous" is his middle name. I know. I have known him for 40 years. He "played" my deceased dad (who battled impairments) like a fiddle. Sickening. None of my brothers or mother disagree with me or are willing to defend him.




Chief Luzerne County Judge Richard (Dick) Hughes

FBI Scranton Division   I worked with them on a successful sting. They have spoken of me very highly and commended me in writing. But they have failed us. They know where all the "bodies are buried" and are (imo) protecting many corrupt officials. Where are the indictments? Noonan brothers... one in FBI... other a Luzerne County Detective. Peter Smith is gone as State Attorney. NO MORE EXCUSES! If Leo Glodzik is in jail... at least 100 police and officials helped or looked other way regarding the LAG Towing Auto theft empire. FBI  PLEASE SHOCK US!! INDICT A TOP OFFICIAL!!! The cover ups amassed are absolutely astounding. 


Scranton FBI Head Sean Quinn


Luzerne County Commissioner Dave Pedri (I am told through a trusted source) agreed not to run for District Attorney if Salavantis would cover up for Pedri's father who stole $100,000 of public money (Hazleton). Pedri (the father) was then was arrested by federal investigators only after I made this "back door" deal public. Dave Pedri also called me personally when working for former District Attorney to "not bring the LAG Towing mess" to the DA. They didn't want it. At this time I made "DA-to be" Salavantis acutely aware of "Cars for Cash" (LAG Towing). It was only after a state policeman's father was victimized that the DA moved (all private complaints ignored) against LAG Towing. As you know the Head of LAG Towing is to serve 30 months in federal prison. He should have plenty of company.

Former PA State Police Captain James Noonan (grew up locally)   Actively shopped the degenerate Gerard Dessoye (former W-B Police Chief) for employment opportunities after Desssoye resigned amidst many public felony accusations. In his position he had to know as much as anyone... and he did nothing. Hell awaits him.



Former State Policeman Chief James Noonan


Former U.S. Attorney Peter J Smith   Wrote me personally about starting an investigation... and then proceeded to indict virtually no one. He is rumored to have tied the Scranton FBI's hands.

FORTY  FORT (near Wilkes-Barre) Police Chief Dan 
Hunsinger   I approached the Forty Fort police to file harassment charges against a demented woman who was sending me lewd and anonymous letters. The Pa State Police told me Hunsinger had to accept my charges. There was absolutely no "wiggle room." Yet Hunsinger would not accept my charges. He literally denied me access to the system of justice available to everyone else? Why? Because Hunsinger colluded with WBPD Chief Gerard Dessoye (who as you know I was a critic of) who instructed Hunsiger to freeze me out.

DRUG ADDICT (PADAVAN ESPOSITO) GOES AFTER CHIEF JUDGE HUGHES

WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH? At what point do Andy Ostrowski and Karen Padavan Esposito (aka Kim Weigal on Facebook) pay their dues for prostituting the legal system as their own system of terror against people they don't like... and as a way to remain in denial regarding the drugs they ingest.

HONEST QUESTION: Who can sponsor and implement a law against this type of abuse?

Below is I have copied part of a motion leveled against the likes of President Judge Dick Hughes and others. Of note...

(1) See this LINK to review the horrible drug histories of Andy Ostrowski and Karen Padavan Esposito. It is shocking.

(2) This motion  has all of the earmarks of a motion that Ostrowski would put together. The problem? Ostrowski has lost his license to practice law. 

(3) Ostrowski and live-in sociopath (imo) Karen Padavan Esposito were recently evicted after being fingered for stealing many items.

(4) I spent about 8 days texting and talking to KAREN PADAVAN ESPOSITO (aka Kim Weigal on Facebook). I found her to be one of the most profoundly sick drug addicts I have ever encountered. She was not allowed to drive her own kids.

(5) Karen Padavan Esposito has bastardized the legal system to the extent that she has dragged her ex-husban to court approximately 80 to 100 times. She chronically asks Judges to recuse themselves and files bogus reports to the Disciplinary Board. THINK OF THE COSTS TO THE COUNTY SHE HAS INCURRED THROUGH HER DRUG HAZED ANTICS!

(6) She prostituted the legal system against a guy (a date) she invited to her home who was to come with a pizza. After passing out in the shower the "date" (the male) had concerns for the kids. Karen Esposito was confronted about drug use. 

Her remedy? Days later she file criminal trespass charges (a felony) against her male date whom she invited over for pizza. Officer Duffy dropped charges after learning the truth.

I hope you all are asking the same queestions I am. 
(A) How can a crazed drug addict so easily file felony charges against a completely innocent man? 
(2) Why is it only a mere complaint with zero evidence (from a drug addict in this case) that can put an honest citizen in the throes of defending a felony charge?
(3) How can charges be filed against an innocent man based solely on the skewed accusations of a well known addict? ... without the accused being allowed getting a word in?

Such a scenario highlights the very biased situation where ALL the benefits accrue to the false accuser and the innocent party isn't even questioned. THIS IS SICK!!


IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS
OF LUZERNE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania                  : CASE NO: CP-40-CR-0002462-2014
                                                                        :
            v.                                                         :

MOTION FOR EXTRARDINARY RELIEF PURUANT TO RULE 704(B) IN THE NATURE OF A MOTION FOR JUDGMENT OF ACQUITTAL OR, ALTERNATIVLEY, MISTRIAL, RECUSAL, AND A NEW TRIAL

AND NOW comes the Defendant, Karen Padavan, pursuant to Pa. R. Crim. P. 704(b), and, in support of her Motion for Extraordinary Relief, avers as follows:
1.      On June 9, 2016, this Court, through Judge Joseph Augello...
Augello   /  Accused of double dipping. See HERE
found the Defendant guilty of 2 counts of driving under the influence, in violation of 75 Pa. C.S. §3802.
2.      The Defendant submits that, not only was this verdict against the clear weight of the evidence, but, further, that it was influenced by serious judicial misconduct, to wit, that President Judge Richard Hughes, who the Defendant has reported in the past to the Judicial Conduct Board in connection with her ongoing domestic relations proceedings, unlawfully invaded the deliberations of Judge Augello, and influenced him to find the Defendant guilty in retaliation for her course of conduct in speaking out about and reporting misconduct of numerous judicial officials, including Judge Hughes, in connection with the handling of her affairs in the domestic relations courts of Luzerne County. (Blake v. US, 2013) RULE 2.4 External Influences on Judicial Conduct
3.      Initially, a verdict under 75 PA. C.S. 3802 (d) (1)(iii) could not be had as a matter of law because the control substances at issue were medically prescribed.
Plaintiff attaches hereto a copy of the complaint of judicial misconduct that she has submitted to the Judicial Conduct Board, which outlines, and provides supporting evidence, for the factual statement that Judge Hughes, who had no jurisdiction at all in this case, was in the Chambers of Judge Augello the entire time of the deliberations of Judge Augello in this matter, and that it is indisputable that this was an improper, unlawful, and unconstitutional violation of the sanctity of the deliberation process
Chief Judge Richard Hughes


Judge Gelb / Ordered Padavan Esposito to NOT drive with her kids in the car.

JJ MURPHY'S PAST AND ASSOCIATED QUESTIONS

Is JJ Murphy a Harvard man? Really? Kings and Marywood to Harvard?  Hmmmm. What exactly occurred at Harvard? Was it a seminar? A workshop? Notice that there is NO DEGREE associated with this reference to Harvard. JJ Murphy is not the man behind his mindblowing 140 page application!!
Next... What a pathetic excuse to explain his sordid behavior.. JJ Murphy had himself paid this outrageous amount ($300 per hour) because he was greedy and thought he could get away with it. Goal Consulting was a "front" to add a veneer of authenticity.


Does something seem strange here? There are NO Wilkes-Barre city hall personnel listed as references - just the police may not have been at arm’s length” Hobbs, N.M. – October 22, 2016 -- The State Auditor's official findings align with my concerns. In July, I filed a complaint with the State Auditor’s office asking for the probe into two contracts championed by Hobbs’ City Manager, J.J. Murphy. These two contracts were awarded to the Medico Consulting Group, LLC, a waste and recycling consultant, and Pennsylvania attorney Alan Wohlstetter, a $475-per-hour-consultant retained for legal services related to the police department’s video surveillance network. After conducting a fact finding investigation, the office mailed a letter dated October 17, 2016 to the City of Hobbs stating that these two contracts “were handled in a manner that raises significant uncertainty as to whether the City received competitive prices. Additionally, the fact that both firms are from Pennsylvania and have connections to the City Manager’s prior employer raises the appearance that the contracts may not have been at arm’s length.”

What is this about?

LEO GLODZIK DODGES JAIL

In what appears to be a very spurious excuse, Leo Glodzik has won 30 days more of freedom because soft fatty masses were found on his body (likely harmless lipomas). He will have these checked out.

But I am not angry or upset. Though Glodzik deserves severe punishment... and he will receive it... I have tried not to "pile on" Glodzik because...

HE DID NOT ACT ALONE!
HE IS BEING SCAPEGOATED!

"IF YOU TELL A BIG ENOUGH LIE EVERYONE WILL BELIEVE IT."
SIMILARLY... "IF YOU COMMIT A BIG ENOUGH CRIME YOU WILL LIKELY GET AWAY WITH IT."

Former WB Mayor Leighton, former WBPD Chief  Gerard Dessoye, Head County Detective Mike Dessoye, DA Salavantis, Asst DA Sangudolce, are equally culpable for watching the LAG theft ring flourish and not lifting a finger. Despicable. They need to serve time.

===========================================
Other News: Nick Scavo made an incredibly insensitive remark to David Yonki. He said, "If you are so smart then why don't you have any money?"  What Nick Scavo fails to realize is that Yonki has what cannot be bought and something Scavo will likely never experience. This is integrity.
===========================================
Lastly... Keep your eye on Beth Gilbert. She has political acumen well beyond her years and is passionate in her service. She translates her posts for hispanics which is way ahead of the game. She is a diamond in the rough. I see very high political office in her future... as long as she keeps a level head. If you know her she is an easy person to like and to root for.

The FAILURE OF THE JJ MURPHY SCHMOOZE TOUR

JJ Murphy approached me in 2012 as part of a "schmooze tour" to quell the flames started by me when I exposed a massive city enabled auto theft ring. I did not buy into it an was vindicated completely by the results.

Leo Glodzik (LAG Towing... "Cars for Cash") is set to receive 30 months in federal prison.
Wilkes-Barre Chief Gerard Dessoye
(1) Was forced to resign because of his support for "Cars for Cash" as well as his "friendly" contact with a woman, a felon who was a running a major drug house. 
(2) Dessoye then resigned from King's College Head of Security because of his predatory nature towards gals young enough to be his daughter.
Former Mayor Leighton's rap sheet is so long I will leave you with one anecdote. Citizens of Wilkes-Barre posted a billboard of the Mayor stealing city gas (happened too many time to count. Here it is...




How much gas was stolen?
Enough to drive around the earth 27 times!

Anti-corruption activists like Frank Sorick and I have gone as far as we can. On the backs of our work and local news articles, JJ MURPHY is being exposed across the country. When Scranton FBI Director Quinn makes such bold statements he indicates a cause for action which should include arrests, indictments, and imprisonment. 

U.S. Attorney Peter J Smith allegedly served as an impediment to justice. He is now gone. It is time that criminals pay. 
- Former WB Mayor Tom Leighton
- Former Chief of Police Gerard Dessoye
- Head of Luzerne County Detectives Mike Dessoye
- District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis
- Asst DA Sam Sanguedolce 
- Pa State Police Captain James Degnan
- King's College President James Ryan and more... Anyone who covers up a felony becomes a felon them self. It is that simple. How many felonies have been covered up (to include stolen cars)? One thousand would be a low estimate. 

Remember JJ Murphy trying to scam up to $1100 per hour for parking authority (parking lots) business. Well JJ Murphy can run but he cannot hide (he was former WB city Manager).


MURPHY = $300 per hour
FOX ROTHCHILD (Philadelphia) = $400 per hour
MURRAY UFBERG (Solicitor) = $200 per hour (an approximation)
TOTAL = $ 1,100 per hour !!    A $38,000 tab!!
NOTE: When Murphy was exposed he Never again showed his face at a public Wilkes-Barre Parking Authority meeting. Draw your own conclusion. 



GOALS CONSULTING? In the opinion of many, an apocryphal business set up by JJ Murphy to deceive and add a false sense of legitimacy.



NEWSPAPER HEADLINES in TEXAS (The Killeen Daily Herald: Local News)Red flags begin to surface on city manager finalists.

Personal Criminal Complaint prepared in 2012 against JJ Murphy

Wilkes-Barre Taxpayer’s Association c/o President Frank Sorick

125 Waller St
Wilkes-Barre, PA  18702
prepared by Mark Robbins  (570) 592-3246 

On behalf of Wilkes-Barre Taxpayer’s Association officers…

·       President: Frank R Sorick  (570) 574-6395
·       Vice-President: Tom Hirko
·       Secretary: Ellen Evers
·       Communications Coordinator: Dorene Schutz
·       Parliamentarian: Linda J. Urban
·       Treasurer: Karen Ceppa-Hirko
To:
11-1-01 Magisterial District Judge
Judge Cronauer
100 Hazle St  Wilkes-Barre Pa  18702
Phone (570) 825-7373

Dear Magisterial District Judge Cronauer:

            We, the Wilkes-Barre Taxpayer’s Association, would like to file a complaint against JJ Murphy (30 Reliance Drive in Wilkes-Barre 18702) according to Chapter 39 of the Pa Code; specifically  #  3922 – theft by deception.

            Mr. Cronauer, we respectfully ask that you recuse yourself due to your past relationship with Mayor Thomas Leighton who has been a party to these allegations.

            We also ask that the District Attorney recuse itself and send forward to the Attorney General. We say this because of the personal relationships between the Mayor Leighton and Detectives Noone and Dessoye.

Chapter 39 of PA Code   § 3922 - Theft by deception.

        (a)  Offense defined.  A person is guilty of theft if he intentionally obtains or withholds property of another by
deception. A person deceives if he intentionally:
(1)  creates or reinforces a false impression, including false impressions as to law, value, intention or other state of mind; but deception as to a person's intention to perform a promise shall not be inferred from the fact alone that he
did not subsequently perform the promise;
(2)  prevents another from acquiring information which would affect his judgment of a transaction; or 
(3)  fails to correct a false impression which the deceiver previously created or reinforced, or which the deceiver knows to be influencing another to whom he stands in a fiduciary or confidential relationship.

We believe that a case can be made for (1) JJ Murphy intentionally obtaining property (money) via deception, (2) preventing others from acquiring this information, (3) and failing to correct a false impression.

OVERBILLING ISSUE   Essentially this an overbilling issue based on deception and fraud. Precedent was set for deception in the following ways (some of these issues discussed more on next page):
1)      JJ Murphy billed the public at $ 300/hour for calls from Newspapers inquiring about his obscene pay rate.
2)      Murphy also billed the at $ 300/hour for conversing with the Mayor on same issue (see last time sheet)
3)      Murphy lied to the newspapers when he claimed picking his brother’s (Patrick’s) law firm was coincidental.
4)      Murphy hid his pay rate (charged through Fox Rothschild) from the public and the Parking Authority
5)      After $34,800 in pay, Murphy has yet to show any written work, calculations, valuations etc…
6)      For 8 days work, he charged $16,800. His times sheets reflect projects through # 9… but # 5 is missing.
7)      The only document issued, the RFQ (Request for Qualifications), was issued by Fox Rothschild (not Murphy)

We ask for:    1) A full audit of his JJ Murphy’s time sheets to include phone records and verifications of time worked.
2) An investigation into Murphy deceptively naming his own pay rate without consent of the Parking   Authority. Murphy secretly embedded his pay/pay rate within a law firm Can it get any more deceptive?
Summary of the proposed lease of the W-B Parking Authority and the players involved

W-B Mayor Thomas Leighton is the ringleader. He had a bird’s eye view of the scam and is letting it play out. He is proposing to lease the W-B parking authority to a private concern and is asking a ridiculous fee of $20,000,000. The Parking Authority has a cash balance and Leighton is distributing the money to his campaign contributors. All the parties below are in on the action.

JJ Murphy, former City Administrator, asked Leighton to pick his brother’s (Patrick Murphy’s) law firm (Fox Rothschild) for the project. The Parking authority claimed that Leighton “pushed this firm” on them. The parking Authority:       
A) Was never told the JJ Murphy had any connection to the Fox Rothchild’s firm
B) When questioned by the press, Murphy said picking Fox Rothschild was a coincidence.
C) The Parking Authority was not informed of Murphy’s embedded, outrageous fees of $300/hour (below).

JJ Murphy (and/or his consulting company “Goals Consulting.”), in a most deceptive way, embedded/concealed/hid payments to himself within the bills issued by the Fox Rothschild law firm to the W-B Parking Authority. These bills were paid by the Wilkes-Barre parking authority which had no knowledge that $300 per hour was going to Murphy. Herein lies the deception (at least part of it). Upon receipt of the payments made by the Parking Authority, JJ Murphy (and/or “Goals Consulting”) took his “cut.” At $300 per hour, Murphy has received at least $34,800 in 2012 from Fox Rothschild.  

When “word got out” that Murphy was being paid $300 per hour (now$ 400) – people were stunned. W-B City Council members were shocked. The Parking Authority was surprised. Even police on the street were taken aback (and understandably angered). It made headlines in two papers.

The Fox Rothschild law firm (Philadelphia) is represented by Alan Wohlstetter. He has fleeced the parking authority by spending over $110,000 dollars. What do we have to show for that money?

B)     A poorly crafted “RFQ” (Request for Qualifications). See http://www.wilkes-barre.pa.us/forms/parkRFQ.pdf .  
The $ 20 M price is a misrepresentation. On page 6 a revered consultant (Desman) is referenced. Yet Leighton dropped Desman because they valued the parking authority “way lower than $20 M” (according to Ed Katarsky who sits on the Authority’s board and was present for the conference call). Leighton then issued a “gag order” on whoever heard this figure.
This report is nothing but a “data dump.” There are no numbers to support the insane valuation of $20 M.

Murray Ufberg is the Solicitor for the Parking Authority. He plays the role as the “good company man” to Leighton. For example, an “RFP” (Request for Proposal of Services) must be issued on any proposal greater than $10,000. This would include the hiring of Fox Rothschild. Ufberg should have insisted that this project be put up for bid. This is the legal and correct way. Ufberg ignored this legality. As a result, Fox Rothschild was hired illegitimately as a place where JJ Murphy could embed/conceal/launder payments to himself.

Thus far the wealth has been spread generously: Two law firms, two consultants, a PR firm (Shelley), and City hall have all been involved. I believe that I know, perhaps more than any other private citizen, how much corruption is taking place. You see I used to do this work. Once you understand the financial tools for valuations (Payback Period, Internal Rate of Return, Net Present Value, Discounted cash Flows etc.) one begins to realize that it is not too difficult. You may find this hard to believe… but I used to do valuations such as these in as little as an hour… and I did them routinely.

The depth of their research has been something like this: If Indianapolis got “x,” then I think we could get “y.” This isn’t research… it’s a stab in the dark. Not surprisingly, the only legitimate consultant (Desman) gave a number nowhere near $20M and was summarily fired!  We can’t mortgage Wilkes-Barre’s future on 10th grade analyses and gag orders! A critical first step is to prosecute those who steal by deception and who plunder public money.
