The State Police are investigating how Leigha Genduso managed to become a State Trooper. It’s clear that her six years as a State Police dispatcher helped, as that is how she met her ex-boyfriend disgraced Lt. Colonel Daniel Risteen. A number of people suggested that her boss when she was a dispatcher, now deceased Gary McLaughlin, was the one who hired her. She did thank him on his obituary:

And as you can see, she credits him with hiring her.

Far be it from us to speak ill of the dead, but it’s imperative we find out how an admitted criminal became a state trooper, and apparently Gary might’ve used his influence to help her out. And the fact of the matter is that right on Leigha’s open LinkedIn page she has one person who has written her a recommendation. Guess who?

“Leigha is a consummate professional and I would recommend her for any position requiring leadership, integrity. Her efforts are i keeping with the highest traditions of the Massachusetts State Police.”

Yea, personally I’d recommend her for any position requiring previous experience with money laundering and wrapping drugs in Christmas paper. But apparently Mr. McLaughlin’s views on professionalism, leadership, and integrity differ from ours. Because Leigha Genduso was never any of those things. She was a pot dealer who saved her own ass by diming out her ex-boyfriend and sending him to prison when he was no longer of use to her. Then she married a corrections officer, is rumored to have had an affair with a VERY high ranking member of the Sheriff’s Office (who we have yet to verify and disclose the name of), ditched him, dated a man 20 years her elder (Risteen), and dumped him when he was of no use to her. This isn’t integrity. It’s just fucking people who can get you nice things while fucking over those who can’t.

So obviously his written recommendation helps. But look at all these law enforcement officials who have also endorsed her on her LinkedIn page, including the the chief of police in Chelsea:

And police from close to home, as well as all over the country:


This is a big reason she became a state cop. Because a bunch of law enforcement officials went to bat for her. They endorsed her. They recommended her. They didn’t bother looking into her background. Probably should do that the next time you endorse someone on LinkedIn. Just sayin.

    Those aren’t endorsements. I thought for a minute that they are that’s why i posted this blog article. My mistake I thought I had it right. My bad.

    Come on Folks, the Chelsea Police Chief “liked” Genduso on LinkedIn and that’s somehow an Official Endorsment?  TB did a nice job with the original article, but this LinkedIn angle is a stretch at best.

    bullying? really? she lied cheated and blew her way to a cushy 150k salary at the MSP and this is ok? shes an admitted felon yet has a badge? are you people f’ing kidding she needs to be fired and probably should be charged… btw its hard to eat your gun when your in a padded room at the psyche ward

    • Talk about “ignance”
      February 25, 2018 at 4:44 pm

      First of all, since when doesn’t a woman blow her way anywhere?   Stop acting like this is something new.  For starters,  Ask Harvy Weinstein how women got roles in movies. Just stop like she was the only one. That’s how women advance then bitch when someone expects it!!

      Anyway, if she “needs to fired and probably should be charged” (let me know that charge when you have a minute champ) tell me where this retarded fucking article about LinkedIn matters in anything about her. 

      This is like saying a “loner” had “friends” on Facebook. Anyway, when you’re done “Laffin” let me know what you’re charging her with.

        No matter how hard you try, your white knighting this chick isn’t getting you laid or even a hand job. Although trying with bimbos that are locked up in the psych ward or in handcuffs is likely your best option.

      Fuck a job. Early retirement due to the PTSD brought on by all of this publicity. Maybe even a civil suit for the sexual harassment she endured to put her on this career path.

    I am not really sure how LinkedIn works but as a Police Officer, I feel the less people know about me the better off I am with this social media noise. With that being said, I do hear colleagues throw around the term “networking” by LinkedIn. I interpret that as another way to self advertise your accolades and how to show the world great you are, a pissing contest online. I briefly made an account once to see what it was all about. It was a den of practically every narcissist police officer I knew personally and knew of with that reputation. Deleted account. So I am not shocked that she had a LinkedIn, it fits with the way she wants to portray her life. Also, as others have mentioned SOME females in Law Enforcement are in reality a 3, but in the policing world looked upon as a 10, beauty queen status. Couple that with shacking up in the “big bed” with the right people, that shot her up to maybe a 12. I’m not surprised a harem of oogling men ESPECIALLY those in Law Enforcement all wanted to be connected (akin to fb friending) to her thru LinkedIn….

      Six “thumbs down” as of my writing this reply. Obviously many TB riders don’t understand LinkedIn either.

      LinkedIn is not an “endorsement” at all. The only endorsement on her page is the one by her former boss in dispatching.

      This post, and saying that the “Chelsea chief endorsed her” makes TB sound really dumb.

    Am sure Walhberg will think twice for a photo in the future. Also, of course she was endorsed by many others. Obviously they did not know her background as a low-life, maybe some did too. Some things never change.

     What will Interesting is when people including myself file a FOIA request or public records request  for Leigha’s  Application,  and all written essays etc. and most importantly all the written  letters of recommendation. I am filing my request this week. I hope many of you will do the same and lets see  who’s really behind this and how the state police will try to block the release of this information. I am very curious if AUSA  Peter Levitt or any personnel from the department of justice wrote her a letter of recommendation because that would be paying for testimony via favors regarding her testimony in the Bucci case,  obviously if this comes out there will be a huge lawsuit, Bucci’s case will be reopened without the main witness and the department of justice credibility will be trashed.  this is just wishful thinking but I am sure that there are some juicy letters of recommendation in there and I cannot wait to see them I am personally willing to go to court and challenge them if they try to block it from being released.

    Wow, this is a lot of NOTHING. Watering down and weakening the impact of a fine piece of investigative journalism

    February 24, 2018 at 8:41 pm

    Those are not endoresements. Those are merely ‘connections’ by degrees of separation. The (2nd) and (3rd) mean someone she is connected to is connected to that person (2nd) or one of the ‘2nds’ has a coonection to someone else (3rd). Jesus, I’ve been noticing some things like this lately but seriously now you’re playing us stupid. Please do not become ‘fake news’!

    • Sloppy
      February 24, 2018 at 9:23 pm

      To be fair, the 2nds and 3rds are probably Turtleboy’s Linkedin connections to those people when he used the platform to view her endorsements.You have to be connected to a person (1st) on Linkedin to endorse them.
      Still I recognize about half of these cops as 1sts from my own Linkedin page, and some of them I’ve never even met. Not exactly a smoking gun here…

  • Linked In
    February 24, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    They do not “know her”. Jesus, it’s a social media page. Go make one. Pretend you’re a cop and a bunch of other cops will “endorse” or “friend” you. 

    This is why I’m saying TB is ruining good work.  Piling on with bullshit like this.

  • I pay yo salary
    February 24, 2018 at 8:05 pm

    This was a useless blog proving nothing other than a bunch of clowns on LinkedIn basically “friended” her. 

    You are ruining a good thing here. You have made this personal, when it should be professional reporting which is something you want credibility for. 

    Here are some issues…  you blog annomously.  You talk about professionalism and integrity, yet we do not even know who you are. You are entertaining and sure, you have broken stories but the road you’re going down now is what hurts your credibility. 

    Again, Leigha herself was a friend of the program and look at her now.  The same people getting in bed with you will be burned by you. I have seen this many times before with people that went to the media like cowards. Only to be hung out to dry. 

    If you are so confident in your work, put your name on it and become a part of MSM and address the issues of non-reporting. Otherwise, you’re a smut blog that hides your own identity and thus will never have credibility. 

    You blog and talk about a story and repeatedly refer to an Assitant United States Attorney as an Asssitant District Attorney and do not know the difference of a Federal and State criminal trial. You’re pushing your own agenda alluding to facts that it was a corrupt DA when the fucking case was in Federal Court. But yeah, I should scoff at a KNOWN reporter for it quoting an unknown source on a blog that is wrong. 

    Oh yeah, Risteen is building a new house with…  guess who?  Just because you say you know or think you know doesn’t mean you know

      I’m sure those new house plans will change now that he and Leigha were both canned/are being investigated. Committing crimes tends to do that to a couple.
      Baldy prob won’t want her now that she is taboo, and Leigha doesn’t need him. Well, maybe she does now that she has no income. And, maybe he does bc he wants to keep plowing that young stuff.

        Maybe the plans do change. Point is, TB is reporting they “broke up”. Trying so hard to pile on, they are filling in blanks and believing whatever they are told.

      You can always tell the comments from entitled teenagers or 20 somethings. They write like they are the first person to ever have an original thought, clueless that they’re repeating the same old brain dead complaints written by other dimwits. Whining and posing like the spoiled bitches they are, their lack of self-awareness is exceeded only by their utter stupidity and narcissistic need for validation.
