Lessons learned: Skrep was a piker

Lessons learned:  Skrep was a piker

Skrepnak, Bonner, Cordaro & Munchak
   One thing I can tell you, Greg Skrepnak is a piker compared to his counter parts up in Lackawanna County.
   And, yes, there are some very valuable lessons to be learned as the Cordaro & Munchak trial winds down.
   As the old saying goes, if you’re going to rob and steal, rob and steel big.
   For example, Skrepnak got bought off with a few flat screen TVs while Lackawanna County Commissioner Bob Cordaro, at one point allegedly took a $97,000 payoff, went to the car lot and bought a brand new car and SUV.
   How ‘bout poor Bobby Rielly?
   He was kicked back a measly few hundred bucks for a $3500 remodeling job while Codaro allegedly was kicked back cash with $100 bills stuffed in shoe box.  There was even mention that there were bills larger than a hundred.
   I didn’t even know they made anything larger than a hundred let alone actually lay my hands one.
   Poor Jerry Bonner. He went down for accepting a $1500 suit.  During that escapade one prominent power broker said, “Hell, I wish I knew all it took was a suit.”
   In the mean time, Lackawanna County Commissioner Bob Codaro was surrounding himself with Playboy Bunnies, smoking cigars, playing golf and partying with Hugh Hefner at the Playboy mansion.
   Boys and Girls:  Please let this be a lesson to all the crooks in Luzerne County.

Wasn't it Bill
Brace that was charged with taking the $1,500 suit?

Joe...Bill Brace got the suit. Jerry Bonner already had his own. So who was that power broker who got his story wrong?

Yea, you're right. Tough to keep up with all the crooks in Luzerne County
