Mezzacappa Leads NorCo GOP in Opening Prayer
If you think Northampton County Republicans are trying to distance themselves from County Council candidate Tricia Mezzacappa, think again. They're embracing her. Last night, party boss Bob Kerr actually invited her to lead them in an opening prayer at their monthly meeting. When Ron Angle complained about this, she lit into him, claiming that Sheriff's would be at Ron's house today with a bus, to pick up all of his guns.
Earlier this week, under oath, she falsely claimed in open court that she had served Angle with a petition that contends he's stalking her, too. He is apparently my back up.
Last November, Mezzacappa was convicted of disorderly conduct after threatening to drag West Easton Boro Council President Kelly Gross to the Delaware River and drown her. Mezzacappa later stated, on her own blog, that she should "have cracked [Kelly's] filthy mouth. ... [T]hen the court case would have been worth it."
Mezzacappa has also slammed a 14 year-old Dieruff High School girl who was tasered by an Allentown police officer last year. "Too bad he didnt [sic] shoot this wildly obnoxious imbecile with a real weapon. One less problem student who will ultimately be a terrible leach [sic] on society, after being trained to think she is above the law. One shot, kersplat, perfect, problem solved."
Easton police were also called to her home in 2011 when she complained about a "beeping cab." In addition to her gripes about a poor cabbie, who had stopped on the street to pick up a neighbor, she had numerous complaints about those people, too. You see, they're black. They "should have stayed in the projects." Several, including the cabbie, herd her refer to those people as "niggers."
When a county party chair actually encourages a person like her to lead his party in anything, he in effect tarnishes every Republican seeking office, from judge to borough council candidates.
