This John Fetterman secret was the last thing Chuck Schumer wanted getting out

Democrat candidates are pulling out all the stops this year in an all-out sprint to keep Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in power.

With polls now moving in Democrats’ favor, they can’t afford any slip ups.

So John Fetterman’s newly revealed secret was the last thing Chuck Schumer wanted to get out.  

Blue State Lt. Gov’s history of playing dirty

It’s come to light that one far-Left U.S. Senate candidate has a history of diving deep into the lurch with dirty tricks.

The news is the last thing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wanted bubbling up just when polls are showing Democrats pulling ahead in their effort to retain control of the  Senate.

Senate hopeful and current Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman (D) ordered a police officer to dig up dirt on one of his political rivals while he was Mayor of Braddock.

This information comes from a town solicitor who Fetterman subsequently fired.

Braddock’s then solicitor Lawrence Shields accused Fetterman of “abuse of mayoral authority.” 

According to Shields, Fetterman ordered a Braddock cop to obtain a police report from a 2004 domestic incident involving challenger Jayme Cox.

Abuse of authority is always out of bounds

This action was so out of bounds that Shields and Braddock city council members called for Fetterman’s arrest for violating state laws regarding the handling of criminal information in cases where charges are dropped.

Fetterman cast the tie-breaking vote to fire Shields as solicitor three years later, using the excuse that he wanted to save money in the borough’s budget.

Fetterman said he was an “enthusiastic yes” in favor of ousting Shields and would not answer questioning whether the earlier criticism of Fetterman was a factor in Shields’ firing.

The incident marks one more ethical cloud on Fetterman’s time as mayor of the economically depressed steel town.

He frequently points to this time as Mayor as a way to establish blue collar credibility. 

Ten years ago Fetterman pulled a shotgun on an unarmed black jogger he wrongly suspected of firing a gun near his house. 

The jogger by the name of Christopher Miyares said Fetterman aimed a shotgun at his chest. 

Fetterman says that he “may have broken the law,” but he has never apologized.

Cox admitted he got in an altercation with his wife in 2004 but says the claim that he hit her “wasn’t true.” 

Cox says he and his wife reconciled and remained married until she passed away in 2017 and still doesn’t know how Fetterman obtained the police report.

Cox says of Fetterman, “He’ll stab anybody in the back who gets in his way.”

Fetterman proposed rewrite after his alleged violation of criminal records law

As Lieutenant Governor, Fetterman proposed rewriting the very same law he was accused of violating, the Criminal History Record Information Act, claiming the act “unfairly” disqualified “many Black and Brown Pennsylvanians” from employment.

So in addition to having a soft-on-crime Lieutenant Governor who is looking to jump to the U.S. Senate, Pennsylvanians are learning that their Democrat Senate candidate is majorly ethically compromised.

Let’s hope the voters choose wisely.
