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?
CRIMINAL THOM GRECO
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!
For a guy 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, AnotherLARGE 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!
