Nice. You put someone, anyone, into any committee chair that has a related business in the process of coming into their district. If this doesn’t define “transparency”, what does? because any idiot can see how this is a bit questionable.

Well, it’s not all on Rip Van Marshall. God knows he doesn’t have that much pull to push his way into a chair position. Maybe he slept his way in. As in zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

This is Mike Turd-zai’s doing. Pick a faithful soldier, put him in place and tell him what he will decide and how he will decide it. Jim won’t decide where to sit without the party broker’s telling him. And to think, MT was looking to be governor. Because the GOP is SO much better than the Dems, right? Riiiigggghhhht.

The only thing that would be a bigger friggin coincidence is if they decided to name a citizens advisory board on gaming ethics and it’s effects on communities impacted by proposed gaming establishments….and then named Veon as the chairman.

Back in the good old days, corruption took place in the back rooms of social clubs when politicians and cronies would gather and plot the future. Money arrangements would be made and the taxpayers would be screwed as they watched their tax dollars be consumed by the machine of political corruption. They knew it went on but only saw the results of it. Today they’ve become so bold that they skip the back rooms and do it right in front of us, in their offices, during public meetings, wherever is convenient to more expeditiously move those tax dollars into their personal accounts and to those of the cronies who will take care of them later in life.

There is no recall election ability in Pennsylvania. Those who are elected to enforce the laws are all in on it so they are all collectively saying to you, Beaver County residents, “Fuck You – whatcha gonna do about it?”

Can someone ‘splain to me why you vote for these people and why you’ve continued to vote for some of them over and over again?

Well said, Accordingtome. Follow Marshall and his “family ties” and links to Courthouse politics. I’m surprised they don’t publish a weekly newsletter praising all their subterfuge.
