County GOP Chairman Jasper Nolan and PATRONAGE

Numerous news outlets are on the verge of blowing the top off the patronage scandal being discussed at the Times Union Capital Confidential Blog.

Some are saying that the latest job givaway to the Clifton Park political boss was the straw that broke the camel's back.

There is intense scrutiny into the "timing" of that job and questions are being asked about who was involved.

This has attracted attention to ALL the OTHER town and city chairmen and if they or their spouses or families have political jobs - and preliminary reports are mind boggling - it seems that MOST have patronage jobs.

The question reporters are asking are has Jasper Nolan abused the taxpayer dollars by creating all these patronage jobs?

Stay Tuned.

Is Jasper Nolan even still alive? I'm asking because he was my high school history teacher.

Is anyone aware of the workplace incivility (as Michael Brannigan, ethics man from St. Rose and Times Union describes it) taking place at Saratoga County Dept. of Social Services? Or is it Workplace Violence!!?? Something should be done about the injustices and waste of taxpayer money! Where is Norma Rae???!!
