Just when we thought we had heard the last of our man Mark "Ciavy" Ciavarella, he now has reared his ugly head and is back in the news. To my dismay and the dismay of many others, a federal appellate court has granted "Ciavy's" request to declare himself indigent. No, not indignant, but indigent! In other words, he is broke, busted, down on his luck and cannot afford to hire an attorney on his own. Oh yes, you know where this is going. Now that a court has ruled that "Ciavy" has no dough, "We The People" will be paying for his lawyers to handle his appeal. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! Our tax dollars will now be going to defend this piece of crap! I just blew the top of my skull off! My blood pressure just went to 240 over 138! I just had a mini stroke! Taxpayer dollars are going to pay, not appointed defense attorneys, but "Ciavy's" cronies Al Flora Jr and William Ruzzo. These two jug heads will be paid $125.00 per hour for their services. By the way, Flora and Ruzzo claim that they have not been paid for their services from the original trial and do not expect any payment soon. I guess the work "Ciavy" did painting porches with that idiot from City Wide towing did not pay so good. In case you didn't know, Flora and Ruzzo work part time in the Luzerne County Defenders Office along with their private practices. Why does this entire thing reek of the Wyoming Valley Sanitation Facility on a hot August Day? Of course the two attorney's also claim that they will work on the "Ciavy" case on their own time, after hours and weekends. SURE THEY WILL!
I guess what I want to know is how can a man who bilked the system out of so much money be flat broke. "Ciavy" claims that he has less than $500 to his name since being sent up the river. Hell, didn't he hide some of his stolen money in his relatives names? In fact, Federal Prosecutors questioned "Ciavy's" transfer of money from the sale of his Wright Township home to his daughter Lauren Stahl who then used it to purchase a townhouse in Kingston. No court action was ever taken on this one! Maybe our man should call on his good friend Rob Mericle to help with some money. Mericle has a few million laying around for "Ciavy" to borrow. No matter how you look at it, this entire deal stinks! I don't want my hard earned tax dollars going to defend the appeal of this scumbag! He broke the trust of the people when he sat on his judges throne and for that the people should let him rot in prison. To me, this is like a slap to the face of the taxpayers of Luzerne County. He bones us and then turns around and and uses us like a prostitute on Friday night.
