The local media is apparently protecting their man Al Kelly in the same manner they protect Lou Magazzu. This story made news in the Gloucester County Times, the News is apparently ignoring it.
Following a recent slew of fraud scandals at an area Gateway Community Action Partnership office, the non-profit’s leader says the schemes don’t signify a widespread problem for his agency.
Albert Kelly, who heads the group formerly known as Tri-County Community Action Partnership, said the ex-employees who have received prison terms for their roles weren’t typical of Gateway workers throughout the agency’s service area.
Okay – so FIVE different people, three related and two unrelated, aren’t “typical”… I will believe that story when Al Kelly comes out and tells the truth about who actually reported the wrongdoing. “These were cases of greed, of course,” he added. “But sooner or later, the system always catches up to them …” Well, the system catches up with them unless they are bilking the system legally and taking home six-figure salaries. There are quite a few six-figure salaries at Gateway. That is pretty obscene for the poorest county in the state – that money could actually be going to help poor people, instead of lining the pockets of greedy people.
