Senate President Ronald Russell Decision.....
Feb 27, 2012 - 10:02

Frankly, it did not come as a surprise that the Senate President would renege on his promise to name the Senators responsible for the $6.9 million dollars ROBBERY.....
Perhaps, the senate president is following orders from the federal and local authorities investigating the mismanagement or rather pilferage of the millions of dollars in question......
Are the senators given an opportunity to return the money back where it properly belongs?
Since, they are at the top of the totem pole while others below them are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law?
It sounds quite biased and prejudicial.....
It clearly defines a double standard in play......
All I want to know is whether or not the Senate President Ronald Russell will ever reveal the names of the Senators involved before or after the election......
Why would any senator give the Senate President Ronald Russell consent to let the public know about their misdeeds?......
Such a bizarre request......
You would think the senate president could come up with a more intelligent answer than that......
How stupid of you?
Please I am begging you......

What the Senators and others don't seem to get is that this issue is not going to go away!

Senator Russell does a great disservice to the people of the VI in not coming clean with EXACTLY what is going on with regards to any investigations into any Senators and others responsible for OUR MISSING $6.9 Million Dollars.

There is a CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE surrounding this matter that is deafening as no one has yet come forward to enlighten the public IF there even is an ongoing investigation.

There has been No Response from any inquires to Gov. DeJongh, any of the Senators, our Delegate and most interestingly, calls to Roy Moorhead's Office ( He is head of White Collar Crime Division at the Justice Dept.) about whether there is any investigation proceedings, underway. All these questions continue to go unanswered, months after the audit's release.

The simple fact is that elected officials, their staff or any other government employee who STEALS from the taxpayer should not be allowed to continue to act on our behalf (ha!), continue to be paid their grossly overpaid salaries as in our Senators case, the health benefits, their pensions and continue to enjoy all the perks and fringe benefits of the office and positions they hold.

No! These people belong in JAIL! They do not belong hiding behind their positions of TRUST.

If all of the Senators are not guilty, they should simply step forward and say so. Why should they continue to protect the guilty? The Guilty ones are doing a tremendous disservice to the innocent senators and every single individual living in these islands.

Past and Present Senate Presidents know what is going on as ALL Authorizations for ALL Expenditures MUST go through the Senate Presidents Office!

Time to 'FESS UP and restore the public's confidence that we do have some ethical and morally responsible representation.

Either that or it is time for all of them to start seeking other employment come election time. Hopefully, for some, it shall include wearing jumpsuit orange!

Think this is new? Ask for an audit going back 40 years. If this happens, gallows will have to be constructed.
