This here be a tough one.
So, old lady works for township, embezzles a Oprah-load of cash (like $2.5 Million) and then lives a suhweet lifestyle for awhile.
Then she gets caught and dies from cancer in the head before she can be tried and put in jail.
So, now that she’s all fucking dead, the township wants the money back and is going after her family who may have or may have NOT known that she was fucking rich because she was stealing from taxpayers.
Lower Macungie officials who are still trying to recoup some of the estimated $2.5 million that Margaret Szulborski allegedly embezzled from the township are now going after the late township supervisor’s family to recover some of those funds.
The township filed complaints in Lehigh County Court this week against Szulborski’s husband Richard, her daughter Michelle M. Zenie and son-in-law Karl T. Zenie, claiming the three knowingly accepted stolen money used for vacations, vehicles and other expenses.
Steven A. Bergstein, the Allentown attorney representing Richard Szulborski, called the township’s latest move “one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen.”
Bergstein has filed court papers of his own to force the township to turn over nearly $225,000 in pension funds and other money he says has wrongly been denied the family since Szulborski’s death.
"To put this family through what they’re doing….this is an outrage," Bergstein said. He said that Richard Szulborski, who lives in Lower Macungie, is blind and that his son David, 51, died in late April.
Jeffrey Fleischaker, the Fleetwood attorney representing the Zenies, said his clients deny the allegations in the complaint, but declined further comment.
Margaret Szulborski, a former township supervisor and employee, was accused of stealing sewer fees she was responsible for collecting. The alleged thefts occurred between 1999 and 2006, the township alleges. She died in February 2008 after battling brain cancer and before her case went to trial. Source
Yeah, kinda different when you find out the husband is fucking blind and his son died in April.
See, this is what sucks about dying. Say you have a lot of debt, then you die, well they are going to hunt down anyone from your siblings, old fuck buddies or someone who you had coffee with one day until they get back what they fucking want. That’s kinda depressing.
They got swindled, what do they honestly think they are going to get out of these people? You can’t really PROVE that anything was given to them and they had direct knowledge that it was stolen unless it’s on tape or something.
So, seriously, fuck. I am going to side on the bad lady’s family on this one. As much as it blows, they can’t really be held liable if they didn’t know.
Besides, Lower Macungie Township is full of fucking rich people, just raise taxes, I heard property owners don’t mind that.
