How is Lou Barletta going to spin this debacle? The attorneys for the plaintiffs who were recently successful overturning Hazleton's illegal illegal immigrant ordinances are asking for $2,300,000 in fees. That's a lot of property taxes. Other costs associated with the claim amount to $45,000. This is what everyone tried to warn would happen if they tried to use demagoguery to advance their Mayor's personal political agenda. See Barletta wants to be more than just a Mayor, he wants to be a Congressman or something.
He used the people of Hazleton as his springboard to national publicity and now he'll stick them with the legal fees too. Of course they were stupid enough to go along so they get what they deserve. Next time Lou read a copy of the constitution first.
People who go off half cocked without doing their homework deserve to get smacked by these legal fees.
