The former mayor and councilman of Lawrence Township has admitted to stealing thousands of dollars for unapproved salary increases while serving as the executive director of Asbury Park Housing Authority. Mark Holmes, 56, pleaded guilty to second-degree theft by unlawful taking and faces five years in state prison when he appears for sentencing before Monmouth County Superior Court Judge John Tassini on April 6, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni announced in a press release Wednesday. (Snip) Holmes admitted Tuesday to stealing more than $90,000 by using state grant money intended to help low-income residents of Asbury Park to give himself a

Comments:
Government-run welfare programs never meet their stated goals. And because the funding is endless taxpayer money rather than voluntary charitable contributions, there´s little interest in guarding the henhouse. Lots of opportunity here to MAGA.

Stealing is now "unauthorized salary hikes". Put that in your new English lexicon.

I noticed Holmes´ political affiliation is never stated in the article. That, along with being black, corrupt, and a NJ politician tells me he most likely is a Democrat. If he´d been a Republican, his party would have been the lead sentence.

Faces five years in a State Prison? Anyone care to guess how much time he will actually get? My guess is ´nada´. After all it is only second-degree theft.

Notice the, no doubt, archaic term ´theft by unlawful taking´ to describe his crime. Nice phrasing.

Article says ´up to five years´. Should it read ´up to ten years´ in NJ? Was a deal made?

He will get a full pardon just before the next Democrat Governor leaves office. Then he will sue for his pension. And win.

Nancy Gordon is a retired insurance agent, fluent in health-care industry jargon, and even she can’t make sense of the prices she pays for prescription drugs. Last year, a three-month supply of Eliquis, which prevents blood clots, cost from $116 to $466 through her Medicare Part D prescription plan. The 75-year-old Philadelphia resident was thrilled to discover a website that compares cash prices. Then she learned how much she was overpaying for another medication to treat her irregular heartbeat.

President Donald Trump’s trade policies could mean short-term pain for Detroit’s automobile industry, but his actions are long overdue to restore the U.S. manufacturing base, says former GM vice chairman Bob Lutz. “The exporting of American industry is something that has got to stop,” Lutz said in an interview with the Free Press. If World War II were fought today, “we couldn’t win, ... because I don’t think we have the capacity to build complete aircraft and complete tanks," Lutz said. Lutz, who has held top jobs at GM, Ford and the former Chrysler, said he favors Trump´s increased tariffs on foreign imports,

Publix is supporting Adam Putnam´s run for
governor like it has no politician before
Tampa Bay Times [FL], by Steve Contorno    Original Article

The Florida supermarket giant Publix has given more money to Adam Putnam’s gubernatorial bid than any other candidate since at least 1995 and likely for the entirety of the company’s history. Publix, the heirs to the company’s founder and its current and former leaders have given Putnam $670,000 in the last three years — or enough money to buy 74,527 chicken tender subs. No other Florida candidate has ever come close to that kind of subsidy from Florida’s largest Fortune 500 company. Its most recent contribution, a $100,000 donation on April 30, was the largest, too, according to the latest campaign finance

Vatican City — Pope Francis says he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock. Francis made the comment during his morning homily Tuesday; the Vatican didn’t release the full text. Francis was reflecting on St. Paul discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision Francis said all bishops must make. He said: “When I read this, I think about myself, because I’m a bishop and I’ll have to take my leave.” Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI “opened a door” to future popes by resigning.

Confessed mass shooter Nikolas Cruz had no criminal record despite dozens of disciplinary infractions, but there was one case in which Broward County school administrators were obligated to send him before a judge — and didn’t do it. After trashing a middle-school bathroom in 2013, Mr. Cruz received a three-day referral to a newly created diversion program called Promise designed to help kids who had committed misdemeanors avoid arrest and stay out of the “school-to-prison pipeline.” He didn’t show. At that point, school policy dictated that he should have been hauled before Judge Elijah Williams of the Broward County Delinquency Division,

Democrats, the mainstream media, and left-wing reporters are twisting President Trump’s words in calling MS-13 illegal alien gang members “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned to Trump the difficulty of working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to notify them of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member.

Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies.

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler.

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com
