Sushi, Strongly suggest telling your neighbors to lock their doors and keep their eyes on their wallets, watches, and jewelry if there is a call in our neighborhood and Michelsen the Scam Artist answers the call.

You better hope your mother or older acquaintance does not come in contact with this individual. He is quite the scam artist.

Sushi - you are as clueless as Roxie. First, no one is disputing the fact that neither of these crooks will be receiving jail time. That is precisely what we are so upset about - a felony was committed, laws were broken, and a DELIBERATE fraud was perpetrated. If it had been a NON-UNION member, or a conservative, or someone NOT politically connected, that person would have been labeled a 'Bernie Madoff' and sent to prison for years. Second, you equate Patch readers to tea party members, whom you promptly call FASCISTS for wanting to lock everyone up. Yet in your very next post, you accuse all law enforcement officers of 'being corrupt as the day is long.' Who is the paranoid, delusional, misinformed windbag now? If you are going to lambaste people for spelling errors, at least have the decency to get your facts straight, and keep to a consistent message.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY HE WASN'T PROSECUTED BY THE FEDERAL AGENCY, SINCE THE MONEY WHICH WAS STOLEN, CROSSED STATE LINES , AND WHY HASN'T THE IRS COME DOWN ON HIM. HE WILL PROBABLY RETIRE WITH FULL PAY, AND THE PEOPLE OF WILTO WILL HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE.

Hey Mr. Brennan, why are we still paying 200k a year for this criminal?
