Ron Angle Prank Calls Lamont McClure

Northampton County Council member Ron Angle swears that this telephone conversation really took place last Friday. To confirm that, I'd have to call his colleague, Lamont McClure.

Secretary: "Angelos law offices, how may I direct your call?"

"Lamont McClure, please."

Secretary: "Who shall I say is calling?"

"Charles Dertinger."

McClure: "What's up, Charles?"

"Lamont, this is Ron Angle. You're 0 for 2 and about to strike out. I skunked you on the Council VP, the Council appointment and next time it will be the solicitor."

McClure: "Let me put you on hold."

"Sure."

Click.

Angle tells me he has also sent Hallmark cards to McClure and Dertinger. "They have to be Hallmark. That's when they know you really care." I decided to confirm whether this really happened, and called McClure.

Secretary: "Angelos law offices. Asbestos is our game. We'll find someone to blame."

"Is Lamont there?"

Secretary: "Who shall I say is calling?"

"It's me, damn it. Joe Long, Democratic Party Chair, Chair of the Northeast Democratic Caucus and Bethlehem Housing Authority Commissioner. Get McClure on the phone now!"

Secretary: "Right away, sir."

"Right away, what?"

Secretary: "Right away, Your Magnificence."

"That's better."

McClure: "Hello, your Wonderfulness."

"Lamont, it's me, Bernie. Is your refrigerator running?"

Click.

If Angle skunked him why did lamont nominate Angles guy after voting against him? And why did the other Dem's vote for him the second time around?

I am 1:52 pm.. I will fess up. It was a bit of a trivia question. I wanted to see if anyone remembered the Two Guys Hotel on S Main st in nazareth. It later became the Shamrock for many years and I think it is now apartments. Back in the 1970's I worked at Kraemer textiles.... I loved that old place.
