Milking the Dead Cow

Putrid. But, wait! STILL, an opportunity to be had!
Jim Rokakis has been sucking at the cow since his days in Cleveland City Council with his pal, Dennis Kucinich. The seventies were a turning point in local politics, when both of these men realized that the mob controlled NEO.
Then, the Community Reinvestment Act came along, and it provided the ultimate camouflage, A FRONT--a chance to make the mob look RESPECTABLE.
Now, non-profits and community development corporations could be established, ad nauseum, to further milking the cow!
Our political servants could transparently serve their REAL masters--mob developers and GREED.
The end of the story is not a happy one. Notice: PD has disabled account for ItstimeforRICO:

I'm glad that besides Cuyahoga Avenger that you also quoted Rich Cochran "We don't disclose our employees' salaries ever,", Sun of Self. Another 'public servant' that only continues to serve himself. Too bad that Rokakis didn't put all that energy, time and forsight into trying to have COMPETENT, QUALIFIED, HONEST and ETHICAL 'hires' at the BOR under his reign, perhaps the taxpayers of Cuyahoga County wouldn't of been fiscally raped for a couple of decades by Russo & Co. and VAS Enterprises. Not only were their members of their 'families, relatives, friends and donors club' well taken care of, but the commercial developers/owners made out like a band of thieves by millions upon millions of dollar$, on the backs of middle class taxpayers. I have been privy to knowing some of the salaries of these hotshots on these non-profit boards. When the former A-G was previously on a non-profit board, his salary was over 350, k a year. He probably knows where the l@l is.
