$25,000 Contribution from the spouse of bad man Leonard John Ialeggio to daughter Michelle Ialeggio
During public speaking engagements candidate Michelle Ialeggio touts the education received from her father Leonard John Ialeggio, without disclosing the circumstances of him being disciplined by trade and Federal authorities for requesting, receiving and and retaining reimbursement for expenses he did not incur from his employer and inducing that company to pay club initiation fees when he was not entitled to such payment.
Public records act request seeking information regarding candidate's touted volunteer activities taking place during work hours.
. . . As to what we consider the far more serious allegation of cause one, it is clear that Ialeggio, lacking corporate agreement to reimburse him for about $ 148,000 in pre-existing branch office expenses, undertook by means of self-help to even the score. . .. These credits (totalling $ 148,000) were never authorized by Home Life, and Ialeggio has not produced a scintilla of evidence apart from his own testimony that they were. . . . We thus believe that by directing the entry of the unauthorized credits, Ialeggio wrongfully increased his potential personal compensation by $ 148,000.The National Committee went on to find that the evidence suggested that "in causing the unauthorized credits to the contingency account to be made and in submitting the misleading [Black Hawk] invoices, Ialeggio was consciously operating to benefit. . .

Dondi Properties Corp.
4 Jun 2009 at 6:01pm
The case Dondi Properties Corp. v. Commerce Sav. & Loan Asso., 121 F.R.D. 284 (1988) imposes an affirmative requirement on litigants to "play nice" with one another and timely file papers. Judge Houser expexts compliance with the order.
Mr. Slye's request for waiver of his obligation to participate in jury duty, as submitted on January 26, 2009, poignantly demonstrates the poisonous effect that Black-Robed Hooligans and their attorney friends have on the system of justice as whole. Although the officers of the court may take pleasure in breaking from their oaths, their conduct ultimately results in statements such as that posted by Mr. Slye.
