Now I don't know Mr Munchak, so I'm not going to play the "anonymous poster" game of implying all sorts of graft. Instead, I'm just going to state a few facts:
- The FBI rarely wastes their time, so if they talk to you once...let alone five times...something is up.
- Mr Munchak was a Commissioner when the Montage Mountain ski resort was sold. At the time there was a lot of discussion about how the purchaser wasn't actually the highest bidder.
- Mr Munchak was a Commissioner when his fellow (former) Commissioner, Mr Robert Cordaro, was given exclusive authority to negotiate with the New York Yankees. At the time there was a lot of discussion about how the Yankees ended up with a deal that would allow them to ultimately move the team out of the area. There have also been questions about the concessions contracts awarded at Lackawanna County stadium.
- Mr Munchak was a Commissioner when the renovations to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton airport (I'll leave out the silly "International" part) were completed. The party held to celebrate the airports dedication was a DISGUSTING invitation-only display of government hubris (link here to a related post).
I don't think you need to be a psychic to see that the future may in fact hold some more legal "issues" for Mr Munchak.
