United States Senator Bob Casey recently endorsed Katie McGinty for the U.S. Senate Democratic nomination. From a political standpoint, I guess it made sense.
However from a the view of all voters in the state who are concerned about income equity for all genders, perhaps the Senior Senator might have taken a look at Joe Sestak.
In fact, here in Pennsylvania, women earn 21 percent less. The impact of this pay gap is especially troubling when you consider that over 600,000 family households in PA are headed by women.
Pennsylvanians deserve a Senator with an actual, proven record of accomplishment in addressing the pay gap. Here's Sestak's actual record:
•Cosponsored and voted for the Paycheck Fairness Act
•Cosponsored and voted for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
•Voted to raise the minimum wage by $1.40 to $7.25
•Introduced and passed in the House legislation to strengthen Small Business Administration (SBA) programs for small business development centers to help the 30 percent of small businesses that are owned by women to continue to develop
Voted for and passed legislation which would expand opportunities for women-owned businesses by requiring the SBA Administrator to conduct a study identifying where women-owned small businesses are underrepresented in federal contracting.
Both McGinty and Sestak are om the air with TV advertising.
Apparently the State GOP is now going after another female candidate on her e mails. The state GOP is demanding Governor Tom Wolf release McGinty’s e mails. To me this is a fishing expedition but you can’t blame these boys for trying.
Following a seven month delay by the Governor’s Office, today the Republican Party of Pennsylvania hand delivered a letter to the Governor’s Office calling on Governor Wolf to release Katie McGinty’s emails by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 21, six days from the delivery of the letter.
The letter comes after a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article detailed the numerous attempts by the Governor’s Office to block access to the former Chief of Staff’s emails, which were first requested by PA GOP Deputy Communications Director Paul Engelkemier in July of 2015.
“Katie McGinty’s track record of ethics issues and financially benefiting from trips through the revolving door between the public and private sectors should be a cause of deep concern for Pennsylvanians,” PA GOP Deputy Communications Director Paul Engelkemier said. “Over the past seven months, Governor Tom Wolf’s office has repeatedly blocked the release of Katie McGinty’s government emails to the public. After an untold amount of wasted taxpayer dollars, it’s time for Tom Wolf to stop playing political games and finally release Katie McGinty’s emails.”
Yeah I’m sure the crack Wolf team is going to make this a priority with their hands full with budget issues.
I was stunned today while watching ABC’s “This Week” when Donald Trump kept saying that his supporter, a black man who started to wail on a protester was wearing a Ku Klux Klan outfit. Then he shifted gears and said the partner of the person was wearing it. All the while there was video that showed his supporter beating on a guy with a flag shirt. It was like he was the only man in America looking at the video. Trump blames others for this violence but from the looks of things he might be the one responsible for adding fuel to the fire.
You know what? If this ass hat wants to throw away 25 million bucks because he is entitled to special treatment, let him go. You wonder why some younger kids feel entitled? Their parents make them believe they are so special.
LaRoche’s kid is 14. Man, if I thought I was interfering in my father’s career, I’d have a man to man talk, Andy Hardy style, son to father. This is ridiculous, it was given more airtime than necessary and I just hope this silly stupid issue doesn’t being down a good Manager like Robin Ventura.
I have no use for Donald Trump as a Presidential candidate but he appears to be an outstanding father. Maybe LaRoche should have a talk with Mr. Trump. But then poor Trump would get in trouble for saying to LaRoche, “What, you think you’re Lincoln with that pig face beard??”
