Drunken Joe/OZ, You really need to get a life! Nice try, but I'm not Dave Betras. After a quick review of your posts, it clear that you are obsessed with Betras. Still mad that he fired you, eh? Since you seem to know everything, please tell us the "truth" as to what Betras did wrong? You keep alleging that he's going down. If you're referring to the current investigation at the BOE, the activity being investigated happened well before he was on the board. You need to put up or shut up! You might want to get a job before you're thown out on the street since the bank is taking your house. And how is that Obummer phone treating you these days?

Hey Joe the drunk, aka "oz"Finally figured out who you are, and why your obsessed with chairman Betras. Aren't you the fatass that David fired for stealing from his law office? And you claim to be a former high powered political operative for Bill Clinton.Yeah, right! If my memory is correct you ran for Mahoning County Commissioer and came in dead last! You were even beaten by my good friend Joe Louis Teague, who finished third in the race. Why don't you do us all a favor. Get away from your computer, and out of your mother's basement and try to do something productive in life. Your anger comfirms that you've been a complete failure all your life and taking it out on David won't help much!

I agree that Sammarone wouldn't reach into his own pocket and give Kitchen $4000.00 CASH! I'll bet he shook down a city contractor for the money! My next question is did he give McNally $4000.00 CASH to cover his bases? Lord knows McNally isn't the cleanest guy around either!

We all know what went on here, Chuckie. Don't insult the intelligence of the public. You knew exactly what you were doing when you handed Kitchen an envelope with $4000.00 cash. You were caught off guard that Kitchen reported your illegal contribution, evidenced by your ridiculous comments to Skolnick. Was the money payment for future consideration when you assumed that Kitchen would win the general election? Maybe return as Water Commissioner, where you made big money, and could never be found in city hall? I sure hope that law enforcement officials will see through your lies and prosecute and remove you from the public arena. You have been a huge part of the public corruption problem in the city for years, and it's time law enforcement takes you down.

We now know that the 2 top elected officials of Youngstown City Hall (McNally & Sammarone) reek of political corruption.The BCI Investigators working on behalf of Mike DeWine's Political Corruption Office seized McNally's campaign finance reports from the Board of Elections in the last 45 days, and have been out in the community knocking on donors doors to question them about their contributions. Then there is Chuck "I don't remember" Sammarone, who was implicated in the sexual harrassment case of Kitchen, and now he can't remember giving $4000 cash to Kitchen. Mix in a selfish and dysfuntional city council that refuses to cut and redistrict the city wards and we wonder why the city is on its deathbed. I would urge the good people of the city to continue to flee to the suburbs, as the city officials are hell bent on destroying what's left of a once proud community.

What's up with Chuck Sammarone? This inept "public servant" should be removed from office and prosecuted for an illegal campaign contribution. Theses guys do as they please and are never held accountable for their actions. And to think that he will be mayor again when McNally is indicted and convicted of public corruption!

Hagan is showing his true character, which is he's liar and a con man. He never had any intention of withdrawing, and author/Sam makes a great point that Betras slams Engler for not withdrawing, but not a negative word about Hagan. Engler may have the last laugh, as he is pursuing/filing an ethics violation with ths OSC against Betras for inducing Jeff Limbian not to file to run for judge against Sweeney, a republican. According to Engler, he believes Betras violated Ohio's bribery statue getting Limbian out and Sweeney benefited financially from the action Betras took.

@listener - Will Holly Hanni be in charge of the petitions for the former Democrat, now an Independent? I sure hope so! She's an incompetent lawyer, and now appears to be an incompetent political powerbroker!
