Charles Dertinger Appears Before Grand Jury Investigating Deceptive Campaigns

Thanks to a friend who tipped me off, I already have my question picked out for Northampton County Council member Charles Dertinger at tonight's slate belt debate. Don't tell anybody.

"Hey Charles, what the hell were you doing in front of a statewide grand jury in Norristown yesterday? Why'd you bring a lawyer? Can you tell us about it?"

Senior Deputy AG E. Marc Costanzo is conducting a grand jury investigation of Northampton County deceptive campaign practices. Political consultant Tom "Scissorhands" Severson has already been bound over on ALL charges relating to deceptive campaign practices in Northampton County, but the preliminary hearing raised all sorts of questions about the involvement of Dertinger, Lamont McClure and Dem Party Boss Joe Long.

"Charles, Did you ever dance with Severson in the pale moonlight?

"Good day!"

Thought grand juries were secret ?

Grad juries meet secretly, but it is perfectly permissible for someone to reveal that he has to appear and to even discuss what he was told them.

I hope the behind the scenes political contributions of Abe Atiyeh to the Stoffa campaign are finally brought out in this testimony.

It is time for these officials to play by the rules.

I have deleted all Villa commentary. Folks, please try and ignore him. I will always take out the trash, though some days it takes longer than others.

I beleive a lot of people are waiting to hear the Atiyeh connection before he gets the Bethlehem Twonship sweetheart deal.

I have not heard that. But if you think there is some sort of improper connection beeen Atiyeh and Dertinger, you should make that known immediately to the AG.

What does Atiyeh have to do with Dertinger? Are they in cahoots too?

I have not heard that, but if this anon feels there is some connection, he should go to the AG.
