Pam Varkony, who attended Musikfest and is in the clear, tells us that congressional candidate Sam Bennett also attended the festival. Some of you may have gone to get tipsy or hang around with the Bill White cutout or get tipsy or pig out or get tipsy or listen to music, which is still played there. But congressional candidate Sam Bennett, who incidentally lives at the Historic Benner Home, went because Musikfest is a "catalyst for the revitalization of the city of Bethlehem" and "an economic boost for local businesses" and stuff like that. Oh yeah, she's a "Lehigh Valley leader," too.
Bennett claims Congressman Charlie Dent has to stay home in case Big Oil calls him to drive one of its tanker trucks or something. "[I]f an event won’t help him raise money or gain more pats on the back from Big Oil, he’s not interested,” says Bennett campaign manager Kathryn Seck, who was imported here from D.C. and doesn't even know how to do the chicken dance.
There's just one problem with Bennett's accusation - it's false. He's been there twice this year, standing in lines just like everyone else. According to his campaign maven, Shawn Millan, Charlie always goes to Musikfest. Big Oil must give him a few days off.
Not me. I'm actually a servant of Little Oil. We have to work harder.
