Lehigh Valley Somebody's most-read, most influential blog posts of the year in review

* In August, it was very rewarding forcing DA Jim Martin into action on ...
a drunk driving death. With no local media scrutiny, DA Jim Martin has historically and routinely (hiccup) ignored DUI homicide cases for months, a year or more, and in some cases, several years. Not this case, Jimbo ... LVS exposé prods DA Jim Martin into filing charges against DUI baby killer Randy Teets ... in 34 days

* In March, our SiteMeter(R) registered the highest readership spikes in LVS's history, as we exposed the laughably obvious and grossly unethical DA Jim Martin/Gross McGinley law firm crony connection in a series of three highly revealing blog posts.

* Five months after violently killing my daughter Sheena, malice-sodden and remorseless drunk driver Robert LaBarre, son of Gross McGinley lawyer Donald LaBarre, escaped to Belize, Central America. Was he coming back? Was he a fugitive from justice? In any other city in America, this would have been an above-the-fold, front page lead story in the local newspaper: GRIEVING FATHER DISCOVERS DAUGHTER'S KILLER AWOL IN BELIZE. But curiously, The Morning Call "newspaper" in Allentown PA steadfastly refused to cover this story. Interested in knowing why? Hint: it has something to do w/ the DA Jim Martin/Gross McGinley/Morning Call crony connection. Read our series of three eye-popping exposé blog posts from January ...

Good Ol' Boy DA Jim Martin arranged a "bargain" and secret plea deal w/ Sheena's killer and his family and excluded the Villa family from the court hearing, read the inconvenient & shocking facts in ...

Watch DA Jim Martin accidentally admit to Robert LaBarre's third degree murder malice on TV (!) and witness Robert LaBarre inadvertently confessing to third degree murder in Judge Robert Steinberg's courtroom (!) as you read ...

* Sheena Villa's 3rd Degree Murder [Note: Martin & Steinberg refused to charge Gross McGinley attorney Don LaBarre's son Robert LaBarre w/ the crime they both knew he had committed against my daughter Sheena, third degree murder]

In February, thanks to LVS's exposing of DA Jim Martin's incompetence and collusion baggage (which would not play well outside of the Lehigh Valley) and despite Jim Martin's lobbying, pandering, ass-kissing, and begging for the cushy and temporary state attorney general's job vacated by Martin's pal Tom Corbett >>> Corbett Rejects 'Gentleman' Jim Martin, Picks Irish Lassie Linda Kelly For AG Job

* In early May, when DA Jim Martin's Chief Deputy DA and lapdog Renee Smith tried to run for Lehigh County judge, LVS exposed Renee Smith's blatant violations of the PA Judicial Code, for which the Judicial Conduct Board, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania sent Renee Smith a stern warning letter [JCB Complaint No. 2011-184]. Although the Judicial Conduct Board was very interested in, and officially disturbed by, judicial candidate Renee Smith's unethical and violative behavior, LVS could not arouse any interest in covering this story in either The Morning Call "newspaper" or 69 "News." The End Result: Renee Smith spent the most campaign money ($113,935) by far and came in dead freakin' last. Booya. Just walk away, Renee ... Judge Wanna-Be Adra Renee Smith Plays Fast & Loose w/ Judicial Codes of Conduct

* In the same May primary election, three of the "Gang of Four" GOP candidates for Lehigh County Commissioner made the cut, and the November general election ballot, but thanks to LVS exposé reporting, the gang's 4th candidate, Morning Call blogger and attorney (for now) and pussy David C. Najarian came up short. 5'4" to be exact.

* LVS's All-Time Single Most-Read Blog Post (by far) is our late May 2011 exposé ... Here's How DA Jim Martin Fixes DUI Homicide Cases for Connected Cronies

* This October post was LVS's 2nd most-read blog post in 2011 and is our 1st Favorite LVS Blog Post Of The Year ... DA Jim Martin KO'd, pulverized by Bill Villa at West End Youth Center campaign debate

Throughout the year, every year, LVS exposes and bitch-slaps elected incompetents, self-absorbed phonies, crooked colluding cronies, "anonymous" (wink wink) and declared sadists, and pussies. In 2011, it was our pleasure to publicly humiliate w/ devastating uppercut comeuppance the following highly deserving dishonored individuals and institutions ...

* Ex-Morning Call "newspaper" Editorial Gatekeeper, Secret Keeper, and DA Jim Martin Boot Licker Glenn G. Kranzley

* Former and current Morning Call "newspaper" "reporters" Kevin "Cubby" Amerman ... Debbie Garlicki ... Paul Carpenter ... Jarrett Renshaw ... Manny Gamiz ... Mike Miorelli ... Darryl Isherwood ... Christine Schiavo ... and Paul Carpenter again ... joining previously exposed Morning Callers Tremblin' Wally Trimble ... Bill White ... Jarrett Renshaw ... and John Micek

* The Dick Dean-owned 69 "News"

* Overly well-connected criminal defense attorney (incredulously, he sits on DA Jim Martin's reelection campaign fundraising Host Committee and he crony-double-dips as Secretary of the Lehigh County Bar Association), Gavin P. Holihan

and ...

* Cedar Crest College "ethics" professor Michael Donovan's wife (for now) Diana Morse Donovan

* Team Martin/Morning Call 24/7 LVS blog stalker and vile anonymous commenter, "Anonymous" (wink wink)

and the ...

LVS is proudly (yet humbly) finishing up 2011 the same way we started it ...

* Speaking Truth To Power and letting the colluding crony bastards know that they can run, and they can hide behind their Morning Call and 69 News, but they'll never get away. We'll keep a floodlight on them as we chase 'em to the gates of hell and it's only a matter of time until somebody catches them real good.

Thanks for reading (and stalking) LVS.

Happy New Year.
