LNP: MONEY OVER
PROTECTING THE PUBLIC!
Why didn’t LNP ever report that former Lancaster City Police Chief Keith Sadler’s ex-wife wrote a book alleging he beat her for years and made her partially blind?
Money: The convention center and their Marriott Hotel.
LNP and former Mayor Rick Gray had an agreement: He would back the convention center and keep funneling money LNP’s way and LNP in return would give him nothing but good press. It “worked.” They covered for the Mayor’s incompetence, arrogance and lies and he stayed in office for three terms and during those terms he funneled LNP millions and millions of dollars.
Someone or several people in the Gray administration failed to properly vet Sadler. It made his administration look incompetent and foolish and LNP wanted no part of that. So they chose to simply ignore it and allow a police chief whose ex-wife wrote a book stating he beat her to stay in office for years. Sadler could have easily sued her but he choose not to – probably because her children and others would confirm it.
And, yes, I think LNP liked the fact that Sadler was African-American. It gave the city an outward appearance of being “progressive” and helped to hide the astonishing racism that exists within LNP’s own staff and the county.
Money is the sole, greedy, totally unethical and terribly harmful to all women, reason LNP decided not to inform the public that the police chief – let me state that unbelievable fact again – the police chief – was a wife beater!
* Ok, Cat lovers which one of you will take the 5 strays I have? The mother was dropped off in my yard and had kittens 7 months ago. SPCA won’t take them and none of the other shelters in Lancaster county will either, I have called them all. SPCA charges $ 50.00 per cat and still wouldn’t take them. I caught three and took them to the Lancaster branch willing to pay the $ 150.00, but they say the cats are too feral and I had to bring them back home. TNR is $ 30.00 to $ 50.00 each and I have to bring the cats back home. I don’t want the cats they keep killing birds at my feeders.
LNP opinion editor Suzanne Cassidy retweeted the above yesterday. The CNN piece is here.
