The LuLac Edition #2291, December 10th, 2012
There was Iran Contragate, and of course the grand daddy of them all, Watergate. But in Luzerne County it appears we are going to have sausage gate. Controller Walter Griffith has been looking at the spending at the Luzerne County prison and has questioned the fact that sausage is on the menu. Griffith points to the fact that many Muslim prisoners don’t eat pork and wonders why so much was ordered. The Times Leader reported that other items on the menu included including bacon, bagels, cream-cheese packets, strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew, and red and white grapes, The retiring warden has insisted that prison workers eat the same thing as the prisoners but Griffith seems to be disputing that. Workers used to be able to get lunch for free because they needed to be in the building to cover shifts but County Manager Bob Lawton stopped that after an inquiry for that was called by County Council member Edd Brominski. We’ll keep you posted on the meaty details
