I remember a very distasteful and mean-spirited outburst by Lou Magazzu intended for one of his fellow freeholders who had gotten into some financial difficulty. This freeholder, a hardworking and honest individual had simply bit off more than he could chew.
Lou, in the most condescending manner, said that any person that allowed themselves to get into such financial straits had no business serving in public office. Without belaboring the point, if Lou was a man of integrity he would immediately resign from public life. But, that will not happen, for he is a hypocrite.
There is a great website called www.realtytrac.com, which lists foreclosures. Realtytrac ID # 31043058 (sorry, but membership is required to view the details) for parcel 14-06501 indicates that 4201 Dante Avenue, owned by Louis Magazzu, was recorded in Cumberland County on January 15, 2010 for foreclosure.
Interesting how a financial genius such as Lou could owe $333,7000 on a house valued at $298,000. Now we understand why the county is in such dismal fiscal shape – Lou ran it like he ran his personal affairs – into the proverbial ground. Karma sucks, doesn’t it, Lou?
