  1. On the Marlboro “college” purchase


    plus , the VTdigger article shows the former CEO of the non-profit as “arrested” for wire fraud etc.


    So, from link 1, we just PAID over 312,000 to a defunct school where the CEO was arrested the month AFTER the government approved the loan.

    PLUS, Seth, is a former Obama administration employee

    What can we DO!??!

  2. Guess they thought they could buy the officers for money? Officers are not stupid they know they still don’t have the support of the council having their SIX,so who would want to work where they aren’t wanted

  3. I’m just LOVING this! Way to go, officers!!! I just wish the remaining officers would ALL walk…..it would be awesome to see radicals like Max Tracey running pursuit in Birkenstocks grasping for his water pistol. These people have no sense of reality to the point where I would ordinarily feel sorry for them; instead I am anticipating the highly likely scenario that people will be seriously injured or killed due to their NEGLIGENCE and their spineless decision to kowtow to a group of radicalized children last year.
