This is going to be an interesting series of articles concerning the events from today's County Committee meeting. Some interesting revelations may be exposed such as a Democratic official who donated money to a Republican candidate's campaign (someone with a Democratic opponent) and more juicy stuff about Chair Tom Herman's patron, Tom Caltagirone.
Meanwhile State Committeewoman Anne Perrige accused me of being "a bad Democrat" today. In more lucid moments she might want to consider the absurdity of her argument. I sure hope she doesn't use such illogic when she's representing clients in court! She was angry because I exposed the fact she has contributed money to Republican opponents of our Democratic candidates. I also exposed a contribution Tom Caltagirone made to GOP Attorney General Tom Corbett. But that makes ME a bad Democrat!
Both attacked me today because I exposed their treachery. This is the "kill the messenger to avoid accountability yourself" strategy perfected by George W. Bush. I'm trying to figure out why I'm the bad Democrat because they gave money to Republicans.
I'm going to have to spend a great deal more time sifting through campaign finance reports and see how many more "bad Democrats" I can find. This is going to be interesting folks. Yes, instead of attending Democratic fundraising events, taking pictures to use to promote Dems, instead of spending my time and gas researching some VERY damaging information about Republicans, I'm going to look for more bad Democrats. I may as well not be singled out for vilification after all.
Meanwhile our Democratic candidates should find other ways of getting the information out about John Fielding's interesting campaign workers, Ron Stanko's tax claim history and divorce case and Christian Leinbach's extremist supporters who think we should all die so we can get to heaven faster. Maybe direct mail will work for you.
Oh, and Tom C? I did write about the money you gave to the HDCC. If you hadn't been hiding from your constituents after announcing you would be voting for Republican John Perzel for Speaker you might have caught it here.
One other thing. There are probably going to be a raft of articles hitting the internet/blogosphere about the Democratic Party voting to stifle dissent and free speech. What a huge bunch of morons were on display today. Thanks for the millions of hits John Ryan is going to send to my blogs folks. Rest assured I'll provide them some interesting reading.
The name of this blog will not change.
