This is why I do not understand why the Dept. Of Justice (Feds) do not come down here and clean the whole place out.
So much of the corruption is blatant thievery and back room deals.
This is why I said that when voting here you must consider who may be the lesser of evils.
Can't wait to hear Kevin Rames defend Tibbar this morning (AM 93) at 9:30.

It doesn't really matter who wins.

We're all going to be the losers.

We've been the losers for decades. Probably since Melvin Evans was Governor.

The Source is DeJongh's friend. They did not report on the $500,000 that he used to enhance his private home which the federal inspector General said was "improper". The source is the enemy of any of john's challengers. His wife took a junket with the editor to Rwanda using funds from the lottery department. They are not at all impartial.

and the Daily News was owned by Prosser at the time this article was written.....which was years before any of us had every heard of DeJongh.

Do you disagree with the premise of the article ? Mapp took money ($500-600k) from Prosser in exchange for tax breaks:

Jan. 16, 2003 - Kenneth Mapp, beginning while lieutenant governor in the Schneider administration, was sent some $25,000 a month in "training payments" from an off-island company owned by Innovative Communication Corp., according to the sworn testimony of three witnesses.
Mapp, who was lieutenant governor from 1995 to 1999, is now the director of finance and administration of the Public Finance Administration, by appointment of its board, which is chaired by Gov. Charles W. Turnbull.
It was during the Schneider-Mapp administration that Innovative Telephone, also owned by ICC, was granted near-total corporate tax breaks for five years from the government's Economic Development Commission.

The whole bunch are "sheisters" in one way or another including the current incumbent. Why -because you can get away with a lot of "stuff" in the VI that you couldn't do if you were in Congress (Washington, DC); too many watchdog groups in U.S.
