If I'm ever sued, this site will go up for sale for the amount of damages sought, along with posting any documents I receive. If you think you can copyright a letter you send to me, go for it.
I'm still learning about blog design and I've found a problem when viewing this blog. It does not behave properly in small browser windows and if your display resolution is less than 1280 pixels wide and/or you are viewing the blog in a window less than 980 pixels blog wide, the right side bar is pushed below any visible post. I've searched the web and looked at the code for hours but can't find the problem. My next step, when I get the time, is to recreate the blog with a new template. Advice is appreciated.

Former ATU 1342 Treasurer Indicted for Embezzlement

This one flew under the radar for a while - The Assistant U.S. Attorney General has charged long time Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1342 Treasurer Thomas Pokrywczynski with embezzling $72,000 in union funds.

Local 1342, located in West Seneca, N.Y., represents over 1000 transit workers employed by the Niagara Frontier Transit Authority serving the Buffalo-Niagara area.

Pokrywczynski was removed from office in March, 2008 and his crime reported to the Office of Labor-Management Standards by local President Vincent Crehan. There is no indication that anyone other than Pokrywczynski was involved in the embezzlement.

Good news for the members, the money has been recovered via their officer bond.
