Magic Carpet Ride

According to late breaking news this afternoon at the Times Leader Richard Emanski, president of the Swoyersville-based King Glass & Paint, has been charged in the ongoing corruption probe of Luzerne County government entities. Emanski, 65, allegedly provided and installed free carpeting in the home of an unnamed Wilkes-Barre Area School District board member as a reward for support of a contract for Emanski's business.

One of my favorite reporters, Jennifer Learn-Andes, (are you paying attention anonymous) reported on Mr. Emanski back in April, 2009.

King Glass has also done work in Wilkes-Barre Area School District and the Wilkes-Barre Area Vocational-Technical School – which are also being investigated by the FBI.

Wilkes-Barre Area School District paid the company $953,713 from August 2004 to the present, mostly for carpet installation, records show.

It appears that investigation has been concluded according to the published report in the Times Leader. Stay tuned.

The words to the song are "Well, you don't know what we can find." When the F.B.I. comes a knockin the words change to "Well, you don't know what we will,and believe me we will, find." "The magical mystery tour is waiting to take you away, Waiting to take you away- to a federal prison near, well not so near you."
