Former Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Twanda Carlisle today was sentenced to 12 to 24 months incarceration for her role in a kickback scheme that directed some $43,000 in city money to her personal and campaign accounts.
Backed by a half dozen supporters who pleaded for mercy, Ms. Carlisle urged Allegheny County Judge John Zottola to, “through the negative, let some positive light shine.”
Her lawyer, Patrick Thomassey, said he would file a motion today asking that she can serve her time at home, rather than jail.
2. “Through the negative, let some positive light shine”?!?! The hell? What positive light is that, Twanda? Letting a criminal off with a slap on the wrist? OJ Simpson must be a blinding light to you. With that plea, you just solidified your place on my shit list.
You’re not too far below Tom Brady, yo.
3. Please pray tell what is the reason she needs to serve her time at home? How is that punishment enough? Is jail going to offend her delicate sensibilities or something? Good.
Twanda, if Martha Stewart can survive jail and Paris Hilton can survive jail, surely your cushy ass can survive it as well. It’s called, and I’ll say it slowly for you, [typing super slow-mo] facing the consequences of your illegal thieving fur-coat buying actions.
