BT Comm'r Candidate Breslin Has Sordid Political Past
Breslin, who once lived in Hellertown, was in 1996 an assistant treasurer on Bob Kilbanks' then Congressional race against Bethlehem Mayor Ken Smith and Easton attorneys Ed Smith (now a judge) and Jim Brose. This member of the Christian Coalition, was caught, red-handed, stealing campaign signs along Hwy 378 in the daytime. A Catholic priest - the late Father Jim Torpey - dimed him.
Though he denied it, Breslin was dismissed from Kilbanks' campaign.
Weiss is being urged to mount a write-in campaign.
