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.
