So Sarai Rivera is in a world of shit because she can’t seem to explain where all the money she’s been receiving for “campaign contributions” has disappeared to. She’s calling it a “witch hunt,” which is usually what guilty people do when the light is shined on them. Her explanation for her criminal activity is even more hilarious:

“This is a purposeful attack when there is so much work that needs to get done. If that is what they want to spend their time on, then knock yourselves out. There is just too much to do. Right now there are peoples lives on the line, and that is what I plan to continue working on.”

Yea, she doesn’t have time to make sure she’s filling out the paperwork and following state laws. After all, people’s lives are on the line here!! She had two choices – pull a bunch of old ladies out of a burning building or fill out that paperwork. What do you think best serves the community Mr. OCPF?

Anyway, we all know Sarai is a crook by now. We interviewed some of her parishioners at her “church” and they all tell the same story – she tells them if they don’t fork over 10% of their paychecks to the “church” then they’re going to hell. Because when you become an online pastor like Sarai, you can make promises like that and they don’t find out that you’re lying until they die and end up in hell.

Anyway, we’ve got a bombshell for you here so strap on your seatbelts because we’re about to take you for a ride on the Investigative Turtle. This is a list of campaign contributors to Sarai. She has far and away more contributors than any other candidate. Right now she’s sitting on about $26K. Which is weird, because she only represents 1/5 of the city as a District Councilor, in the lowest voter turnout and underprivileged district of them all.

There were a number of REAL BIG contributors that no other candidate, not even Joe Petty, can compete with. Some of them we’ve heard of before, but there were a handful of people with African surnames, many of whom are not from the Worcester area, contributing in excess of $1,000 each. Once again, this is not the Koch brothers buying a Bush election. This is District freaking 4 in Worcester, Massachusetts.

So we decided to check some of these ladies and gentlemen out. Let’s start with Naomi Roman:

As you can see, she is a PCA, which stood out because $325 is kind of a lot of money for a PCA to be donating.

So we looked up her records in the courthouse and we discovered that earlier this year she was brought to court by Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC, and found to be in judgement of owing them $5,986.64. But as you can see, on July 7, 2015, it was ruled by the judge that she is “unable to pay on judgement”:

Which is weird, because she just donated $325 to Sarai Rivera’s campaign. At least that’s if you believe Sarai. She also is listed as living at 156 Beacon Street, which according to the Google machine is this fine piece of property right here:

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 12.06.22 AM

Yup, nothing shady about that!!

Then there’s Abraham Waweru of Woburn, another guy who works in healthcare.

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 12.34.11 AM

He was brought to court last year by LVNV Funding, LLC, and after not appearing in court, was found to be in judgement of owing $2,380.18

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.33.47 PM

 

According to court records, he never paid it. Not the first time for old Abe in front of a judge either. He’s spent a lot of time in Woburn District Court. At least he was supposed to. He has a long history of not showing up, like he did when he was playing cat and mouse with Sterling Jewelers Inc. over the  4,760.01 a judge ruled that he ordered them:

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.36.25 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.35.36 PM

Ooops!! Was I supposed to show up for that? I was too busy driving around Kevin Ksen’s rape van!! I hope you’re all learning the valuable life lesson here – never take anyone to civil court because in Massachusetts the defendant’s have all the rights. If they don’t wanna pay you, then you ain’t getting paid. And they can literally donate $1,000 to a District 4 campaign 50 miles away from them, and there isn’t a damn thing you can do about it. Because…Massachusetts!!

Then there’s Benson Muchai, another “nurses’s assistant” who tossed $1,000 Sarai’s way:

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 12.41.55 AM

County Street is basically right where Get Down Productions filmed 

Livin Goooooooo-ooooooddddd. 

Not exactly a swanky part of town. Which is weird because another person living at that same address tossed another cool G Sarai’s way:

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 12.43.17 AM

Oh look, someone else working for Century. Shocking. Anyway, my man Benson Muchai has quite the past:

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.40.35 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.41.50 PM

The guy lived on Gibbs Street in 2010, Sunderland Rd in 2011, and Millbury in 2013. Now he lives on County Street. Sure, whatever you say champ.

Anyway, that’s just his CRIMINAL court docket. Let’s check out civil court:

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.43.24 PM

Oh look, another Sarai donater who owes $2,020.13, never paid the debt to the collection agency, and then didn’t appear at multiple payment reviews. But hey, he’s got plenty of money to throw into Sarai’s benevolent fund.

Then there’s Joan Kagendo, also from Woburn (noticing a pattern yet?):

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.53.41 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.53.23 PM

And last but not least there’s Douglas Hill, who wrote a check for $1,000 of course, and lives on Third Street, which is as modest a part of the city as you will find (off of Mill Street):

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 12.50.13 AM

Douglas Hill might as well pitch a tent at the Worcester Courthouse, because he pretty much owes everyone money:

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.54.23 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.55.33 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.56.52 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 11.57.09 PM

So what the hell is going on here? Why are all these people who obviously are deadbeats and have no money to spend, giving $1,000 each to Sarai? And why are so many of them African immigrants?

Don’t you get it? Don’t you see? They didn’t really donate anything. She’s finding fall guys. Front men. She’s funneling in money from all over and donating in the names of these people. I don’t even wanna know what she did for them all in return, but I’m sure it wasn’t pretty, and I’m sure it was worth their while.

Sarai Rivera did one of two things – she either a) laundered money into her campaign, or b) her record keepers were so bad that her treasurer just assigned donations to random people. She’s now responsible for providing these checks to the OCPF, which obviously she won’t be able to do. Basically she’s fucked. She can’t go to jail for it, but she’s gonna have to pay some major fines because it’s a HUGE ethics violation.

12095301_879391822144706_4500695684792188820_o

Sarai Rivera is at the head of the hippie mafia. We’re gonna make a flow chart to illustrate it one of these days. But she’s the one getting paid off of all this. I’d put her and Brenda Jenkins at the top of the Worcester pyramid. Below them are Joyce McNickles and Keesha LaTulippe. They make SO MUCH MONEY illegally, and they pay no price for it, because THEIR GUY is Joe Petty, and HIS GUY is Jim McGovern, and they run shit around here. As long as these criminals are still in office, this type of stuff will continue to happen and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. She’ll pay the fines and she’ll go right back to forcing her parishioners to hand over 10% of their checks.

But please, tell me more about how Turtleboy Sports is the bad guy on a witch hunt.

P.S. If this whole thing falls apart for Sarai, at least Teacher’s Union President Lenny Zelauskus has her back:

    Why do we pay for T&G? TB is now doing mainstream media work. Excellent reporting as well. The T&G was marginal when it allowed posting. Now it is almost worthless.

    This is just another example of Turtleboy being a Big Dooty-Head, Meany-Pants, Cootie-Boy!
    Everyone knows that Pastor Riveria is a God fearing, Bible thumping savior!

    “Right now there are peoples lives on the line, and that is what I plan to continue working on.”

    Shouldn’t that read, “Right now there are HACKS’ lives on the line…”?

    If she is still on the ticket in Nov., I hope that GOP audits how many of her voters are LIVING U.S. and Worcester District 4 citizens!

    So Rivera found a bunch of people with a couple thousand owed and offered to make their 2k problem go away for a 1k donation.

  • October 6, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    Confessions at her cult cost a couple hundred for her to forgive sins. Freedom of religion is a great thing,of course these cults put a black eye on the 1st amendment.

    Will the T&G expose the witch? Don’t bet on it because this is a no balls rag catering to rest homes and the silver spooners. Yet hope springs eternal so you never know. Again thanks TB for digging in.

    Clearly these PCA’s are working per diem at the Mosaic doing the vital blood pressure screening of the at risk population. I’m absolutely certain that members of this group want nothing more than to get this silent killer, high blood pressure and hyper tension, under control so that they can return to the ranks of the employed. They long for the dignity that comes from earning a pay check.

    Holy crapola…you all know that this could be a.federal issue. This has wire fraud written all over it.

  • October 6, 2015 at 10:20 am

    Keep digging the dirt, TB….WE love the way you uncover all these dirty dealings that go on in the Woo… Someday, SOMEDAY, we will have clean leadership in this city, all because of TB. Excellent work !!!!!

      To insinuate that there are corrupt dealings happening in Worcester right now means you’re RACIST!!

      I’m curious if Clive will oblige us with a write up about this witch hunt against poor Sarai?

      • Clive's not a racist, just ask him
        October 6, 2015 at 10:38 am

        i’m sure it has already been submitted to the editor hours ago, you know, after minutes of “fact checking” were done.

  • fattydaddy

    She’ll probably cry discrimination and call TB a racist, and then she’ll be on the list of those that don’t show up to pay.

  • Nanny
    October 6, 2015 at 9:32 am

    Rest assured, TB, Rivera will not have to pay once red cent out of her own pocket. The campaign slush fund will cover all that. And if not, she can always pass the collection plate at her “parish.”

  • Sam Burnside
    October 6, 2015 at 9:22 am

    Century Homecare LLC must pay their employees very, very well. Then again, the money could really be coming from her “church.”

  • Frank Lee
    October 6, 2015 at 9:05 am

    “she’s gonna have to pay some major fines”

    Did you just write that TB? What makes you think that this time one of these scum will actually pay? If there’s one thing Sarai knows right now is you don’t have to pay.

    Otherwise a great piece of reporting. BTW Hill mentioned you this morning.

    Man, I’m learning so much about what not to do when I become a corrupt politician/pastor. Paper trails bro, ever heard of them?

    What do you bet no one follows up with this?Bureaucracy will never get around to it before Nov 3rd. And isn’t she running unopposed?

    • Beej
      October 6, 2015 at 8:03 am

      No, she isn’t running unopposed. Jackie Kostas (sp?) is running against her, and she deserves everyone’s consideration.

    Will the T&G pick up on this? please steal the story, everyone must know the thievery.

    Just follow the money. It never fails.

  • October 6, 2015 at 12:56 am

    A priest,that’s the funniest shit, I love when TB says “ya got that”. Father Rivera ya got that. I thought the path to heaven was a struggle and a humble life, good to know she heads a cult and is on city council.
