Montgomery County Pennsylvania Commissioner arrested for perjury, false swearing

Reuters: Tuesday December 6, 2011:
Norristown, Pennsylvania

Since 2007 the family of Raymond Zachry has begged the elected officials of Montgomery County Pennsylvania for help in discovering the actual cause of death of their son.  Excuses, delays, redacted reports in the coroner report and the arrogance of one elected official has finally come home to roost. (Coroner report, police report, letters requesting help HERE)

Last August my daughter and I visited the office of a Montgomery County Commissioner asking for assistance to find the source of the “brick wall” that obstructed the investigation into the altered toxicology report, the mysterious presence of lethal chemicals where reports had been redacted…and it  goes on and on….

We were promised assistance, a letter in October 2011 promised that a report from a new test of frozen tissue would be available “in about a month” that would be November 2011.  We are now approaching January 2012 and no response, no report and no explanation.

It seems that Montgomery County is negligent in more than just death investigations.  Perhaps some are too involved with their own personal business relations on county commission time to allow for community business.

December 6, 2011 a long serving county commissioner, also chairman of the commissioners James Matthews was charged with perjury and false swearing.  He was arraigned and released on $50,000.00 unsecured bail, according to the Reuters report.

“The charges stem from an 18-month grand jury investigation examining evidence about alleged nonpublic meetings held between Matthews and Commissioner Joseph Hoeffel outside the presence of the third commissioner, Bruce Castor, it said”.

A video of Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman explaining the arrest and charges is available HERE.

James Matthews is the brother of Chris Matthews, MSNBC host of a program “Hardball” and is well-known for his on air remark about Barack Obama making a “tingle” up his leg, according to a local blog report.

Perhaps, halting illegal business on county commission time will allow more time to investigate departments in the county under their jurisdiction.

It was reported by NBC Philadelphia that Commissioner Matthews will resign as Chairman of the County Commissioners but remain in  the elected position until the end of his term.
