City Councilman Mariano Guilty

Five to ten years in prison is a fair sentence. I'm sick of hearing about how nice a guy he his. So he smiles while he places the coercive power of government up for sale. Doesn't make me feel any better about it. In fact, I think I'd rather he acted like the extortionist that he is.

Bottom line? $30,000 worth of bribes to arrange deals worth $700,000 of confiscated dollars. Enjoy your stay in the big house. And for all the folks who were talking about how great a guy you are? I'll judge them by the company they keep.

Including a link to
the anonymous letter that started it all written by one Maggie Greer, bookkeeper for the Steel company involved. If anyone knows her, thank her for me.

if this IS councilman mariano... and, I figure few others care enough to comment as such...

here's the deal - you put yourself out as a politician, you accepted a public trust, you assumed the power of law, which implies the ability to use force on another.

i have done no such thing. therefore, i don't have to profess to be an angel to have a right to be angry with those who abuse the ability to take money by force from my paycheck.
