Republicans Opposing Mezzacappa Branded "Traitors"

The NorCo GOP infighting continues. Someone calling himself or herself "David Jones" is mad as hell that tea party extremists like Robert Kerr and Tony Simao have failed to take over their party and get rid of party stalwarts like Peg Ferraro, Dottie Niklos and Lee Snover. 

Kerr and Simao, the former Chair and Treasurer, have resigned, taking their marbles home. No longer able to gavel down responsible Republicans, these extremists have decided instead to attack, anonymously, the "traitors", in an email you can read for yourself.

Subject: Truth & Justice
Yesterday the Express Times ran an article entitled "Republican Party dissolves into infighting over Northampton County Council candidate Tricia Mezzacappa".  A portion of the article reads as follows. . .

When asked to elaborate, Craig DeFranco, the acting chairman of the Republican committee, said the statement came regarding alleged threats Mezzacappa leveled against blogger Bernie O'Hare and her disorderly conduct conviction for a tirade at West Easton Borough Hall, where she allegedly threatened to drown West Easton Council President Kelly Gross.

"We do not think a public official should be threatening to kill people.
We are trying to distance ourselves from those statements,"
- -Craig DeFranco

It now seems this former Police Chief Craig DeFranco wants to convict someone on the hearsay of another and he feels perfectly comfortable putting our Committee's name, reputation and financial resources on it.  Since when does the Northampton County Republican Committee start listening to the local gossip blogger, disbarred attorney and admitted alcoholic Bernie O'Hare and taking his word as gospel!  What is unusual is that Bernie O'Hare is a Democrat Committeeman and several of our Executive Committee members have had almost a decade long political relationship with this man (and I use that term loosely).  Stay tuned there is more coming about this because you deserve the truth and the facts not gossip.

I think I am right to assume almost everyone reading this email is an intelligent and compassionate Republican who really cares about our nation so all I want you to do is to decide should we be condemningANYONE without having our facts straight?  This isn't about Tricia Mezzacappa or Bernie O'Hare it is about TRUTH and JUSTICE!  I am betting on you to come to the right conclusions after reviewing the facts and that you will vote accordingly in the May primary.

Please save this great organization Northampton County Republican Committee from the likes of Bernie O'Hare and his co-conspirators and traitors on our Executive Committee!

He makes great points. This will bakfire on the Republicans, since Mezzacappa will will undoubtably be nominated.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Yes, the supposed allegations are actual facts, and all one need do is visit Mezzacappa's own hate-filled blog to see numerous examples.

If Mezzacappa is nominated, she will bring down every Republican seeking a county office, if not every Republican seeking any other office in the county. She has already damaged them.

David Jones IS either Robert Kerr or a white supremacist upset that David Duke was repudiated by the Republican Party. Citing Mezzacappa in another ANONYMOUS missive, he actually quoted Reagan’s eleventh commandment ‘not to speak ill of other Republicans,’ as if it were some kind of suicide pact.

Is Robert Kerr so broke that he had to sell NCRC data to Aristotle or some other data house? Or, it could just be him—sounds like sour grapes to me.

Republicans do not like to be told what to do by those who hate someone based on the word of a Dem committeeman.

This is a shame and many Republicans will vote for this young lady because the "executive committee" thinks it can tell people what to think and do.

Ferraro is usless as a Republican and should be thrown out of office.

This is not the first time I have heard Kerr sold the PA GOP data base to a private data house. It also makes you wonder what information he grabbed for the politcal consulting business he was running but failed to disclose to the committee.

The repeated attacks from O'Hare's poison posse represent the lowest common denominator in todays political realm, they detract from the core issues that staunch Republican like Tricia Mezzacappa advocates; lower taxes, less regulation, open government and protection of the second Amendment.

The voters and taxpayers of Northampton County would be lucky to have someone like Tricia Mezzacappa as a councilwoman, sadly it seems her candidacy has been derailed not only by the Gross family cartel but the spineless minions that lurk on the port side of our noble vessel.

No sane person could defend this woman. The taxpayers would be lucky to have this fine lady on council. Are you kidding me? There is nothing fine about her and she is no lady. Does she even have a job? She may be living off of the taxpayer. I seem to remember hearing she does massage...hummm. And I bet she pays her taxes. No boyfriend, no anyone except a pig. She has shown she can be many things but none of them exceptable behavior. The proof is there for all to see. She comes on this site pretending to be someone else defending her. That in itself is telling. Republicans purge people less evil then this so she does need to go. Last I heard the D's would not even touch her with a 10 ft. pole. She is a bigot, racist, unstable and on meds so not responsible for her behavior as stated by her. This chick needs to go away. Far away. As a woman I am disturbed by her irrational behavior and embarrassed for her. No one has a history with her because once they spend a little time withher they run for the hills. You don't reward this behavior by giving her what she wants and you certainly don't put her in a position where she makes decision for others. Any good parent knows this. I believe she is gay. Kinda fits much of the behavior. If the gays thought so they would defend and reward her. Just watch.....

@7:30 Your accusation homosexuality is a red herring, designed by fringe members of the Republican party to shame and shun party members who don't carry your fetid water.

Additionally questioning whether or not TM pays taxes on her massage income is scurrilous, baseless, and potentially libelous. Can't wait for November and the nuclear launching pad of hate to go ballistic, it's diminutive operator foaming at the mouth and grasping at straws with the hope of derailing the Tea Party's femme fatale.

The "David Jones" email says: "It now seems this former Police Chief Craig DeFranco wants to convict someone on the hearsay of another and he feels perfectly comfortable putting our Committee's name, reputation and financial resources on it."

On November 15, 2012, Tricia Mezzacappa was tried in a Court of Law and convicted of disorderly conduct. There was direct testimony (not hearsay) that she threatened two public officials. The investigating police officer and three witnesses testified against her. Mezzacappa also had the opportunity to testify. She was represented by experienced criminal defense lawyer Phil Lauer. If she didn't think the conviction was just, she could have filed an appeal. She did not. She paid a fine and later wrote about it, saying the conviction was nothing more than "a hangnail on a gorilla." She also wrote that the case would have been worth it if only she had been able to "crack" one of the officials she threatened in "her dirty mouth."

The facts are the facts. It seems to me that Craig DeFranco had it right.

The comment made by 6:52 AM sounds an awful lot like Tricia Mezzacappa. She often uses the term "poison posse." She often refers to the Gross family as a "cartel." Tricia is coming on this blog telling everyone the county "would be lucky" to have her as a councilwoman without disclosing her identity. What a phony!

"Shouldn't the Express-Times article have mentioned that the E-T is involved in litigation with Mezzacappa? Unless that lawsuit has been dropped. What ever happened to full disclosure?"

Tom Shortell, who wrote this story, is one of the people Mezzacappa complained about in her lawsuit. Since he is part of the story, he can't ethically writ about himself, according to the goofy rules used by reporters.

The paper has not reported her suit against them. I honestly don't know the reason. But let me take a guess. Mezzacappa is attempting to avoid the cost of using a Sheriff to serve the complaint, thinking she can do it herself. She can't. If the paper acknowledged the suit, it might put it in a position of waiving that issue.

Mezzacappa recently sued Angl. Although the case was dismissed days after it was filed, she falsely represented she had served him. She flat out lied. I would not be surprised to see her falsely represent that the newspaper was served.

anyway, here is a link to her complaint against the newspaper.

After reading the email from "David Jones" my first impression is that it is exactly the kind of thing Miss Mezzacappa herself would have written.
Pretending to be a non-existent entity would fit right in line with certain other bloggers I have heard of.
I am not saying it is her, but as the Blog mentor always claims, the style of writing is familiar.

Personally, I would love to see her get nominated. I would love to see her on County Council, toting her great big weapon full of hollow points into the courthouse. I wonder how Mr. Callahan would handle that?

Bernie,
Didn't Tricia Mezzacappa state publicly that she voted for liberal Democrat Barack Obama in 2008? Didn't she say she would consider voting for him again in 2012? That doesn't sound like something a true Tea Party "femme fatale" would say.

I believe she made the Obama comments after being called out in a police report for shouting the n-word at her African American neighbors. Was she lying about her 2008 vote to deflect accusations of racism?

Trica reads this blog. Maybe she would like to provide an explanation to "working class Republicans" like Anon 1:17 PM.

"Tricia is a real Tea Party
Republican"....

Democrats have to love that! If only she were really that important. Anyone who doesn't follow blogs, or live in W. Easton, has no idea who she is.

To the larger point, though... Is this why Priebus talks about the need to "rebrand" the GOP? I feel bad for the Mat Benol and Rand Paul-types out there who, whether I agree or disagree with every point, at least gave/give the "tea party" credibility and respectability by making their case with rational thought. However, the tea party image in the public eye has become increasingly co-opted by more and more extremist elements. But this is the GOP's own doing. They purposely encouraged these grass-root foot soldiers. But unlike the various religious social conservative movements of the past three decades, who easily feel in line behind the GOP leadership, the Tea Party has shown it is not monolithic nor easily controlled. For this reason it will doom itself to gradual insignificance as a political force.

Didn't Simao make some intimation on here recently that they are trying to form some alternative party organization? From the old RINO hunters who drove out the moderates, to the dysfunction of the "tea party", the numerically minority party is becoming smaller and smaller. Reagan's "big tent" has become a collection of pup tents.

Kevin C. said...

Has anyone actually read Ms. Mezzacappa's lawsuit against the Express-Times? Did she put this together herself or did an attorney do this? If she paid an attorney, she should ask for a refund.

Item #5 in the complaint is interesting, considering that it refers to events that supposedly happened in the past but refers to a date in the future (8/27/13). It's either an obvious error, or she is a time traveler.

Another question, Tricia. Why have you stopped payments on your fine? You had the money to pay for a lawsuit against the Express Times. You have the money to sue to get your LTCF back.

"Trish is for transparent government."

Really? Trish, if you mean what you say about transparency, please contact DA John Morganelli and DEMAND that he drop the criminal charges against the deputy sheriff. Tell him no harm, no foul. Tell him you are for complete transparency in government and that you wanted your application for a license to carry concealed firearms made public. Tell him the people have a right to know since you are a candidate for County Council. Publish a copy of your application on your blog for everyone to see as a way of proving the point. Then, issue a statement saying you WILL NOT SUE the County or anyone else because you truly are committed to transparency. I doubt you will do any of that because you are an opportunist who says one thing and does another.

Don't Tread on Me either!

So there you have it folks. Attorney Richard Orloski, the person Mezzacappa chose to list as a character reference on her application for a LTCF, is called "depraved" and "Sick'O Rick'O" by the applicant herself. Is she serious about asking a judge to reverse the decision of the Sheriff and the DA to revoke her firearms license?

Tricia Mezzacappa, writing anonymously at 11:31 AM said: "West Easton forces TM to invoke the RTK procedure in order to secure documents that should clearly be available to the public."

Ms. Mezzacappa, West Easton doesn't force you to do anything. The Right to Know Law is the legal mechanism for the public to obtain any and all government records. The law contains time deadlines, including the availability of a 30-day extension of time to respond to a request. The law doesn't require that records be transmitted electronically unless they exist in the electronic medium. The law contains exemptions and appeal provisions. If you have a problem with the law, you should contact the state Legislature and work to get it amended. Otherwise, stop your constant whining.

Finally, referring to West Easton's office employees as a "crew of heifers" shows what an insensitive jackass your parents raised. Incidentally, since you are a candidate for public office and the primary is less than a month from now, why aren't you spending your time campaigning instead of screwing around on this and other blogs?

Tricia,

Other than when you were criminally impersonating Matthew Dees, has anyone endorsed you? Anyone? Even the Fake Rev and his kool-aid drinkers are running from you. They're cRaZy, but don't go around threatening to drag people to the river and drown them. They don't call people the "N" word. They don't brag about putting hollow point bullets through other peoples' skulls.

After your racist remarks to an Easton police officer, you can cross minorities off your list. After attacking Peg Ferraro, as you've been doing, you can cross most Rs off the list. After besmirching the Easton police, you can cross law enforcement off the list. As your vicious slams at innocent West Easton clerical employees become more noticeable, you can cross public sector employees off your list.

I can't think of a single person who will vote for you, after hearing about you. You best hope is your Italian last name and ballot position. Sadly, that might be enough.

I notice that even the email defending you is anonymous. Nobody wants to be associated with you publicly.

Despite your death fantasies and ugly statements, I feel sorry for you. You are a bright person and I do consider you attractive. You did help me when I embarked on physical exercise again, which was very nice of you. It did help me. But you really do need help. You make things up. You hurt people so much.

As a bottom-feeding blogger, I have very thick skin, but even I have had to sue you over some of the false accusations you've made. But the person I really feel sorry for is a W Easton clerk who gets paid next to nothing and then is heaped with abuse by you. Even if she is wrong, and I don't think she is wrong, there's no reason to treat a low level public sector worker this way.

You should focus on getting better and making amends to all the people you've hurt.

If you were a good Republican, as you claim, you would withdraw now. Democrats are going to use you to destroy every other Republican seeking office. You might have mental problems, but you are not stupid. For the good of the party, you should withdraw. For your own sake, you should withdraw.

First of all, The discussion of her Carry permit needs to viewed as the fact that TM committed fraud when she ued Stoffa and Orloski as her reeferences. In that light the whistleblower should not be held liable for anything, and TM's carry permit should remain revoked and she should, at the very least face a HUGE fine.

Anonymous said...

Bernie, In what way is Mezzacappa hiding her efforts to get back her LTCF? If she is appealing, I hope Orloski and Stoffa are witnesses at her court hearing. A judge needs to hear from her two chosen references just how devoid of good character she is.

Putting peoples names down as references, even if they may not say kind things may be dumb but is not fraud you idiot.

The deputy, in a position of authority released confidential informartion. Even the DA stated he did that and is not a whistle blower He is toast.

The Sheriff will have to answer to the judge as to why he let an ex boyfriend determine someone cannot have a gun permit in a "shall issue" state.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Tricia, So as I understand it, your LTCF has been revoked. It can be revoked for good cause, and good cause in this instance would be the danger to public safety that you present. There is a case right out of Berks County on this point,, lost by gun rights lawyer Joshua Prince.

Bernie O'Hare said...

The Berks County Sheriff revoked someone's LTCF based on character and reputation evidence. The guy appealed to the County Court. A hearing was held. Several witnesses testified and the revocation was upheld based on the facts of the case. The guy appealed to the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court. In February of this year, the appellate court also upheld the revocation. Neither the appeal to Berks County Court nor the appeal to the Commonwealth Court was private. These were public proceedings.

Bernie-
Come on, not everyone who disagrees with the Republican Party line are tea party "extremists" It really annoys me when you throw that around. I have yet to recall Robert Kerr ever being at a tea party meeting. How about finding a new tag line?
This infight at the NCRC is just that, an infight. Just because some of the participants believe in tea party principals (and I say some not all) doesn't automatically make them 'tea party extremists' Do me a favor Bernie, give the rhetoric a rest.

Joan, Robert Kerr was a member of another local tea party, which is probably why you did not see him. He, Simao and their ilk have demonstrated themselves to be extremists of the worst sort, the kind interested in concentrating power for themselves as opposed to furthering the goal of any party by getting its members elected. I saw it myself. What word would you have me use if not extremist? Perhaps egotist is better. They have divided they party by trying to alienate the majority of the membership. I'd suggest that you spend some time talking to ling-time members. Don't take my word for it bc I do not belong to your party.

Didn't Angle alienate the majortiy of the Party a long time ago?

I don't think you're an expert on the local R party, just hate.

The People support you Trish. You have been railroaded and maligned. You have our votes.

Who are "our"? Who has really endorsed her? Aside from impersonating someone and claiming to have that person's support, I can think of no person who has publicly endorsed her. I can think of several members of the GOP who have publicly condemned her.

Even the COAF has distanced their selves away from Mezzacappa. They have endorsed Peg Ferraro. It is on their Save Gracedale blog. WoW! No one will back Mezzacappa!

Of course no one will back TM. She has crossed the line a long time ago and it has caught up to her. The only remarks on these blogs in support of her are from her. Just wish we could find a way to force these people into serious therapy. Guess we have to wait for the law to do it. Just hope it isn't after she follows through with one of her many threats. Good reason to arm yourself.

Hmm, this is the OTHER Lee Snover (male). This is all news to me, as I am not as deep into the County GOP weeds as many of you.

Let me say this, I know Bob Kerr personally, and I find it offensive that folks here would be accusing him of selling data or being a "white supremest" or any other such non-sense.

If you have evidence of some wrong doing, or believe he has done ANY of you wrong, you owe it to him to speak to him directly instead of bad mouthing him to one another here or anyplace else.

Honestly, the comments I'm seeing here would be what I would expect to see from five year olds picking on each other in the play ground, not from those who espouse to represent the citizens of Northampton County on behalf of ANY party.

I think many here owe apologies to one another for things being said. Start there and act like adults and maybe you can get your collective act together.
