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.

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 DeFrancoIt 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!Who would you rather leave your wallet or your small child with?
