By Borys KrawczeniukStaff Writer
The list of contributors to Republican congressional candidate Lou Barletta includes two brothers who were once entangled in a southern Luzerne County cocaine-distribution ring but are now prominent businessmen there.
Paul and Neal DeAngelo, the owners of DBiServices Inc., each gave Barletta $1,000 on March 28.
In 1994, Paul DeAngelo was sentenced to 18 months in jail for his role in the Empire drug ring, which operated in the late 1980s. He was released in 1995.
