Cicilline has not talked to Gordon Fox?

Why did Cicilline cancel his own event  last minute at the Weaver Library in East Providence? Was he tipped off on FBI?

Do I know you?

Imagine you have been friends with someone for over twenty years, and they have a  horrible life changing situation. Why would you not go and see that person? Congressman David Cicilline admits he has not seen or spoken with a Gordon Fox since the " raid ", and that has raised more than a few eyebrows. Fox had his home raided by the FBI, and his office at the state house blocked off like a crime scene. Fox was forced to resign as Speaker of the House and faces an unknown future to say the least. If you were a friend of Gordon, you would rush to his side and try to provide comfort and advice during the most turbulent time of his life. Unless you were Congressman Cicilline. Cicilline placed one call to the Fox home and " spoke with Marcus" to " let them know I was thinking of them." Hmmm. Cicilline is a congressman and  former criminal defense attorney, with power and influence. Yet no visit with Fox? No offer to help Fox fight and preserve his power? No offer to bring in his famous father " Jack" and circle the wagons around Gordon? Hmmm. Seems odd Cicilline has no interest stopping by the  Fox house or having a  " public coffee" to show support.  Was Congressman Cicilline tipped off about the FBI? Why did he cancel his event last minute at the Weaver library in East Providence ? What did he know? Cicilline is the most powerful  and admired of the " velvet mafia " and seems to want to distance himself from the former speaker.  Cicilline grew up with members of organized crime in and out of his house as his father was in-house counsel to the Patriarca crime family. You could learn more than a few tricks just by watching how those guys operated for years.  Cicilline has sent a message that Gordon is " cooked" and should be considered " dead" for those taking notice.

The Pell Prius

A stolen Prius in Nort Providence? No way.  The only cars they steal in the land of " Sal Mancini"are Caddys and Lincolns. There is no way the crowd that hung out at Montcellos would have been caught dead driving a  " Chafee" Prius . The people of North Providence may be corrupt and wear white shoes, but they would never drive a Prius.  The story of Clay-boy Pell, Michelle Kwan and her missing Prius so far have managed to grab more of the headlines this political season than the rest of the field combined. The unions figured they could make " lightening strike twice" and push Pell into Smith Hill  office the same way they did with Gump in 2010. No matter how hard the unions try, even the people of a Rhode Island are leery of a guy who cannot remember where he parks his car. Pell has turned into the state punch line with his missing " Prius" and reporting it stolen.  Clay- boy and Michelle have been off the radar and in the bunker for close to two months, with hired hands trying to explain the car fiasco. It is swell he can speak five languages, but sign language with both police and the public would be an upgrade at this point.  Not since Ed " Winnebago " Diprete has a candidate become so closely aligned with a vehicle. Patrick Kennedy may have been a terrible driver, but at least he could find his car. Voters seem to be more forgiving of the politicians getting a DUI as opposed to a candidate better off taking RIPTA. Let's hope Clay-boy can make it go the debates which should prove to be endless comic material . Follow DePetro.com for the latest.

Sources close to the investigation that led to the FBI raid on the home and state house office of former speaker Gordon Fox, tell DePetro.com a person cooperating with the FBI passed Fox " marked bills of cash ". It has been over a week since the raid and law enforcement has been silent regarding the investigation. A source close to the speaker says a person " close to Fox" was cooperating with the FBI and passed Fox " marked bills". A source says authorities then somehow " lost" Fox , but knew the " marked cash "was either at his home or state house office. The head of the state police told the Projo, " Mr Fox knows exactly why we were there, and if we hesitated, we may have lost it."In Police corruption investigations, many times  a cooperating informant agrees to be both wired and filmed, passing " marked bills" to another,( Marked bills.. ) The authorities can then show a jury a " before" and " after " regarding the cash. The person who reportedly passed the cash to Fox is someone he has known and worked with for many years, ( we have decided  not to reveal his name at this time). It is unknown if the cash was intended for Fox, or for someone else.  It would not be easy to get a judge to give permission for search warrants on Fox's home or state house office, but the " marked  bills" would make a convincing case.  Gordon Fox has not been charged or indicted in this investigation, although he did step down as speaker. It remains unclear how many individuals are under investigation or who the larger " target" may be. Follow DePetro.com for the latest on the investigation.
