Not only is Larry Zielke double dipping as bond counsel…
The lawyer for financial advisor Patricia Poprick is none other than State Senator Gerald Neal:
We told you about Poprick on Monday:
The treasurer of the state Republican Party has been drawn into the federal investigation of municipal corruption in Philadelphia.
City officials say the FBI has subpoenaed the city’s records relating to bond work done by a firm owned by Patricia Poprik, who has served as the treasurer since 1992.
Her Bucks County firm, First American Municipals Inc., co-managed four city bond issues between 2001 and 2003.
In at least three of the bond issues, First American was a manager and the cocounsel was Ronald A. White, a central focus of the FBI investigation.
Mr. Broadway Cinemas representing the MSD lady under investigation for municipal corruption. And he’s been her representation since at least 2009 (Warning: External PDF Link). Neal’s kinda like a placement agent. He’s paid by the financial advisor, not directly by MSD. That’s how both MSD and Crit Luallen are able to justify the absolute lack of disclosure.
Nothing to see here, right? Nothing to be concerned about. Absolutely nothing.
