Will she lose supporters because of her payments? DeJongh is not popular on STX (or anywhere for that matter!)

She lost supporters because a lot of voters newly learned of the extent of her tax cheating and are resentful of this pardon. DeJongh was hurt more than she was; now there is no one who can argue that he is not corrupt.

The biggest blow to Chucky though is that Bert Bryan and VI Action Group rallied for the certified voting machines. This will be our first real election in 25 years. We will see if Chucky ever really won any recent elections.

What payments? Doesn't she still owe that outstanding tax bill?
Has it been completely paid off or any payments made towards it?
Frankly I think anyone running for election should be required to provide a tax clearance letter just like we all must in order to renew or get a business license.

Alana, I'm referring to her payments to DeJongh for her pardon. It had to come with a price, and it just looks so apparent that she has to vote with him on every issue.

Thank goodness he's on the way out.

Ergo a pie in the sky assumption based on absolutely nothing factual.

Oh please! She didn't lose any supporters over this!!! The whole episode just validated her constituents overwhelming expectation of being entitled to government handouts, food stamps, nepotism and the like.

As for DeJonge, he couldn't care less because he has a bank account full of graft and a great future ahead with viNGN when his term is over, not to mention a nice fence.

Does Oldtart have evidence to the contrary? Or maybe you might want ask first if they have facts. But then you would appear neutral where deJongh is concerned. Can't have that.

Meanwhile, some payments are in kind.

I don't subscribe to unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. I'm also not impressed when someone spouts them endlessly on an open public forum, cites the public record as alleged proof of them but then declines to say who they are under the guise of fearing retaliation from "them". Fodder for a novel, though.

Payment #1
Chucky votes NO to override the veto of the legislation seeking to provide a pension for the governor's spouse (like the one Mrs. Luz Luis got after she endorsed DeJongh's reelection bid, costing us $75,000/yr for life). Cecile deJongh would get this if she survives John deJongh.

Payment #2
The second repayment of Chucky to deJongh for the pardon is Chucky's vote of no where it concerns the resolution to have John deJongh repay the $500,000.00 he took of taxpayer money to enhance his private home.

1. She was one of four senators who voted nay so what was the personal agenda of the others?

2. Wasn't the vote unanimous and doesn't that mean that all parties agreed to a man with no dissension? One senator was absent (not Hansen).

Good morning, Old Tart
Which nay vote? She was the only nay vote for him to pay the money back, and the only nay vote on both bills.

The senate should go one step further and appoint an independent prosecutor so that the resolution would have teeth.

http://virginislandsdailynews.com/news/legislature-passes-resolution-asking-dejongh-to-pay-back-money-spent-on-renovating-his-mafolie-home-with-interest-1.1760674

The Senate unanimously passed the resolution, which was sponsored by Nelson and Senators Kenneth Gittens and Shawn-Michael Malone. Sen. Diane Capehart absent from the session.

It should be noted that the Source article, however, did note contradictorially that, “Hansen provided the sole "no" vote on the measure, which is a nonbinding resolution. Capehart was absent.

http://stthomassource.com/content/news/local-news/2014/09/26/senate-overrides-veto-eliminate-2012-governors-spouses-pension-la

"Voting to enact the law over deJongh's veto were Gittens, Sens. Craig Barshinger, Judi Buckley, Clifford Graham, Myron Jackson, Shawn-Michael Malone, Terrence "Positive" Nelson, Nereida "Nellie" Rivera-O'Reilly, Clarence Payne and Sammuel Sanes. Voting no were Sens. Donald Cole, Alicia "Chucky" Hansen, Tregenza Roach and Janette Millin Young. Sen. Diane Capehart was out sick with chikungunya."

Your attempt at double-speak based on broad interpretive grammatical license would be amusing were it not so blatantly obvious. Your little twist is not at all what you originally intended to convey. You should definitely come out from under your shell and run for public office.

Soriya Diase is an interesting alternative. I think you should consider her if you are tired of corruption.
