Under the Microscope


A house committee in Washington is scheduled to take a look at the November voting debacle in Luzerne County.  Long story short.  Many polling places ran out of paper.  Some voters were told to come back later.  Many couldn't.  Did it sway the election?  Maybe.

This is issue is clearly worth a closer look.  The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:30 am tomorrow.

The district attorney has an investigation going.  It's still not finished, and we don't know what that investigation will uncover.

The acting county manager advised last week that Luzerne County employees NOT testify in person, that they provide written comments.  He believes the employees shouldn't go to the hearing because they need time to prepare for the primary.

There are allegations the Washington hearing is political.  Of course it is.  Everything in Washington is political these days, regardless of the party that has control.

Be that as it may, we've gone a long time without answers.  County voters deserve them.
