Again?

A bunch of public officials in the Lehigh Valley and Reading areas were charged with corruption last week.  It looks like your classic pay to play scheme-- government contracts in exchange for campaign contributions.

Our area has seen more than its share of scandals.

I know the latest batch is innocent until proven guilty, but here is my point.

Could you imagine all the positive things investigators and prosecutors could do if the people we elected to public office were actually honest, decent and did their jobs?  It would really be nice if those in law enforcement didn't have to worry about thievery and corruption.

I know it's a lot to ask for and it will never happen, but it's nice to dream.
