Another City Councilman plagued by scandal: Rick Mariano prefers not to explain some large holes in his financial records, including such matters as how he paid his bills when the City Council's pay was on hold and whether he has other employment and/or business interests. Federal investigators are interested in his ties to a number of businesses, including a scrap-metal company whose book-keeper is accused of substantial embezzlement. Just coincidentally, it looks like that company may have paid some of Mariano's credit card bills earlier...

Really, the degree to which Philly politicians seem to think they can get away with anything continually amazes me.
