It looks like the race is finally heating up. Capitol Ideas reports Corbett's claim that Morganelli is improperly using an anti-illegal immigration PAC while Morganelli is slamming Corbett's abuse of publicly funded PSAs.
All of this seemed like business as usual until I noticed one sentence in Micek's report.
Morganelli is using Scissorhands Severson.
PMI (Precision Marketing), a Severson outfit, has been paid $6,400 to conduct, of all things, robo-calls.
Severson is currently under investigation by Corbett for possible elections law violations. Last Fall, he ran a series of anonymous robo-calls that viciously slammed Ron Angle and Peg Ferraro. Oh yeah, Severson is also a criminal defendant after he threatened to kill Northampton County Council member Ron Angle during a funeral mass.
When I contacted Morganelli, he confirmed he is, in fact, using Severson. He reminds me people are innocent until proven guilty. True enough.
I have one question for John - Are you out of your frickin' mind??? If you are running to lose this race, this is the best way to do it. You've just associated yourself a person who disrupted a funeral mass, of all things. You've hired a guy being investigated for sleaze campaign tactics, including those anonymous robo-calls.
