To The Editor:

I would like to know why these people that are caught stealing from St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services through the Food Stamp and other assistance programs, names are not printed in the paper.

If I got caught doing this, my name would be published in all the papers, radio, and T.V. stations in Northern New York and sent to jail.

I am also wondering when President Obama and the rest of the politicians are going to take their days off with the 20 percent loss of income, like the rest of the other people have to do, even though they have enough time off now. They need to be docked a day’s pay like everybody else.

And, any politician that is caught doing wrong, like stealing and etc., should be fired and all benefits, like pensions, should be taken away from them and not be able to run for any political office again.
