We have our first two elected officials receiving money from Al Boscov despite the fact that Al Boscov needed a bailout with our taxpayer money, but somehow can muster money for political candidates.

Our first elected official to receive our money is none other than Tom Caltagirone State Rep. for the 127th district of Berks County Pennsylvania.  Tom Caltagirone has received a total of $200.00 so far for 2009.

Our next elected official to receive our money is Bob Mellow State Senator for the 22nd District of Lackawanna County Pennsylvania.  Bob Mellow is famous for being one of the leaders of the famous 2005 pay raise, and where he told a citizen to “Get a life” for daring to question the pay raise.  Bob Mellow has received a total of $1,000.00 so far for 2009.

That takes the tally of our taxpayer money being spent to $1,200.00.
