For a guy that continues to run unopposed one election cycle after another, because The Berks GOP has a hands off policy against anybody in The City of Reading, this guy continues to receive more and more cash.  Unconfirmed reports have suggested that The Berks GOP receives kickbacks from Tom Caltagirone and other Democrats if they agree not to run candidates against them.  State Senator Judy Schwank is another example of receiving a lot of money and is running unopposed this year.  That now takes the total amount received by Mr. Caltagirone to $1,200.00 and a grand total of $205,350.00 spent on politicians since The Boscov bailout.

Well it did not take too long for Al Boscov to start using our taxpayer money once again to donate to his political friends.  The same Al Boscov that needed bailout money from Ed Rendell, because he claimed he was too poor to buy back his failed department store chain, but somehow can donate well over 6 figures to multiple politicians and candidates for office since receiving his bailout money while the hardworking taxpayers and business owners that Boscov owed money to are told to eat it.

The latest person to receive Boscov’s bailout money is none other than Reading City Council President Vaughn Spencer who happens to be running for Mayor.  This donation is according to campaign finance sheets that were brought to our attention by Ernie Schlegel.

This now takes the grand total of donations made by Boscov since receiving bailout money to $193,250.00.  If Vaughn Spencer is going to take this dirty money, why does he deserve to be elected the next Mayor of Reading?
