Pennsylvania competing with Illinois for worst government

Plainfield Township supervisor allegedly drunk at meeting -- themorningcall.com: "Shortly after meeting with fire and police officials Thursday night, Plainfield Township's supervisor chairman was found unconscious on the floor of the municipal building with a half-empty bottle of Jack Daniel's nearby, police say.

Timothy Frankenfield, who is also the township fire marshal, faces a public drunkenness charge. Police say a portable breath test showed his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit to drive."

This is from the Lehigh Valley in PA. I am now going to be hard put to top this with anything from Illinois, but I won't give up.

Dear Dr. Mckenzie,
RE: PA taking top honors from IL. " "I am now going to be hard put to top this with anything from Illinois, but I won't give up."
Now, this is the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, where "things," are a bit more civil. If we are going to give "top honors" for outrages involving town/local government officials, elected officials, appointed officials, legal community officials the hall of shame should be another county in Pennsylvania. When I get the links, I will be happy to pass them along. This place is a best seller!

The writer above must be talking about some of the activities in Monroe County, PA.

We sure got some problems, like all over, but this one has been well known about for years. What is not told in any of the articles, is that the child, is, in fact, his own daughter, or close relative, I believe. This one article says temporary suspension. How can he expect to have his license reinstated? Is it legal for a such a thing in America? This is very sad for the entire family.
