Lessons to Learn from Cuyahoga County Corruptions Woes

We will talk about this issue in more detail, especially as it relates to Lake County.

As you all know yesterday's news brought more us another reminder why the inhabitants of offices, board rooms, etc. need to be closely watched and scrutinized.

Former County Commissioner and an alleged co-conspirator have had additional charges filed on them related to extortion, racketeering, and running a criminal enterprise.

This is no surprise.  This is not the new lesson to learn either.

However, in the transcripts of wiretapped conversations we get a glimpse of people who think that they are above the law, do not respect the law, and view the public treasury as an ATM.

Only a fool would think that similar attitudes and behaviors are not had by Lake County Municipal, County, and other leaders.  Perhaps for the moment the headlines have not featured the names of a local Mayor, Councilman, or County Official.  That day may or may not be coming...soon....

We don't Censor...we just make sure its polite and factual! Accusations made against private citizens will not be tolerated. Public Officials, past & present, or those seeking office do not enjoy the same treatment. If you don't like it...don't run for office!
