I don’t think Republican Rick Saccone’s
shoe shoo-in in PA-18, even if the district is R +11:
The expenses records, obtained by The Intercept through a Pennsylvania Right to Know Act request, show that in his first seven years as a state representative, Saccone spent $435,172 in taxpayer money using his expense account.
Saccone is taking on Democratic candidate Conor Lamb for the 18th Congressional District, a seat vacated by Tim Murphy, an anti-abortion lawmaker who left Congress after the revelation last year that he had pressured his mistress to seek an abortion.[…]
Saccone’s campaign pledges have come under increasing scrutiny as he has moved to run for federal office. Last year, during his aborted Senate bid, Allentown newspaper the Morning Call reported that despite his signature ethics reform bill banning lobbyist-funded meals for lawmakers, Saccone and his wife regularly dined with lobbyists while in Harrisburg, with lobbyists picking up the tab.[…]
But the lobbyist meals have apparently not discouraged Saccone from collecting a hefty taxpayer-funded per diem.
Let’s raise some more money for the Democrat in this race, Conor Lamb.
That’s an average of $62,000. per year. LOL!
Purty please for a fix.
I’m noticing a pattern here.
@Baud: Rules for thee but not for me.
You forgot something.
@Baud: Definitely. They know what they get away with and think everyone else is the same but just hasn’t been caught yet.
I still believe the Democratic Governor of Louisiana doesn’t get enough credit for the way he went after “Diaper Dave” Vitter. First time I ever saw a Democrat go on the offensive with something that was practically forgotten (Vitter had been reelected to the Senate and felt comfortable and confident enough to run for governor). That was something.
People from New England/The Northeast know all the best corruption happens at the state legislature level.
How many MA and RI speakers of the house and senate presidents gone to the sneezer?
Use Oil of Olay ’cause my skin gets pale
We don’t cause trouble, we don’t bother nobody!
my weekly postcard to voters group wrote a couple of hundred cards for Conor Lamb this week. He is a great candidate and his opponent is ghastly.
@Baud: Always, always projection.
(Which means that somewhere a Republican is selling children into slavery on Mars, using a pizza parlor as cover.)
