  1. My cousin was sorting through some clothing and stumbled across one of Senator DeMaso’s suits. This was custom made with his name on the inside. Is anyone interested, or do you have a contact email address or phone number for the Senator to see if he would like this suit back?


  2. Senators grandson is only not a thief but a liar,,,,,,,,,,,,, Brian Demasso, who has a son by my daughter stole property that he said I could store in their garage while I was selling my house.. Took several items worth over one thousand dollars…. would not give items back,,,, took him to small claims court on 01/05/2016… Court said no burden of proof, His father Tom Demasso also came to court and lied with his son against me…. honesty, and integrity does not follow the bloodline……………………………………………… where is anything good since Harry.
