Schlossberg Caught Ghost Voting For Missing State Rep

State Rep. Mike Schlossberg, whose mentor Fed Ed taught him everything he knows about honesty in government, has been caught red-handed casting a vote for a missing House member in yesterday's very tight 100-99 vote on the still unresolved state budget. State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe is calling for a House Ethics Committee investigation, according to The Patriot News.

This is a clear violation of a state House rule that provides, "No member shall be permitted to vote and have his or her vote recorded on the roll unless present in the hall of the House during the roll call vote."

The member for whom Schlossberg voted, Pete Daley, said he gave no authority to anyone else to vote on his behalf.

Schlossberg publishes a blog that chronicles political gaffes, usually by Republicans. Time for him to include himself.

What a vile disgusting individual. When laws /procedures are broken, it seems that very few politicians and unelected govt bureaucrats are seldom held accountable.
for some weird reason, their law breaking news is released and that is . no more news about actually paying a price for these violation.

it is far pasty the time to hammer these vile pigs who abuse the system and abuse the tax payers on a daily basis.

"Ghost" voting in the legislature? WTF? THIS is where voter ID is needed, because this is where a few votes matter - not for the public in their towns. Did this guy both press a button for someone else, and cast his own vote?

Bernie O'Hare said...

He voted for John Daley as well as himself, according to The Patriot News. This incident is not being reported in the local papers, but should be.

That candidate should be knocking on doors NOW instead of having someone post comments anonymously. A-town is a one party town and part of the reason for that is shitty or no campaigns from the other party. He has become arrogant and is obviously ethically challenged, but you need to come out with a very strong and well-financed campaign to remove this servant of monied interests.

Schlossberg has always been a weirdo but now he is a scofflaw. Fed Ed should be proud that his limousine driver can do more than drive a car ! Schlossberg is a piece of shit and made the Democrats look like crooks .He needs to be primaried and taken out next year !

This is just more of the same for Mike, he got to wear he's at by following orders, no questions asked. And since this is Allentown rest assured he will face no serious primary challenge and will be easily re-elected next November. In many respects he is the perfect representative for the Queen City, clueless and partisan.

A 'scofflaw' is a guy who doesn't pay parking tickets. This guy corrupted the very essence of an open representative government. I can see his campaign advertising theme next year: "Schlossberg is such a good representative that he will even represent people he doesn't represent."

We really need to learn why he dared to do this. Who told him to vote for someone else? A good investigation needs to start and certainly a change in House rules needs to be immediately approved and his votes removed too.

"If it's illegal and some say it is, he should resign."

It is a violation of House rules. It is not a specific violation of the state Crimes Code. It could be construed as a deprivation of the public's right to honest services, which would make it a federal violation. With the second highest paid legislature in the country and a state with no budget, no one should have been absent.

Schlopsberg is a world-class political hack. The constituents in his district would elect John Paul Gacy if he was a Dem. He was the hand picked successor to Jen Mann, who continues to feed off the public trough. All these bums should be tossed out of office. Six months and still no state budget. All they do is collect their fat salaries and juicy expense accounts.

Monkey Momma raises a good point. How does a state official vote? Did someone have to actually get up from his seat and walk over to the other representative's and cast a vote? More information is needed but if this is true it casts a dark light on Schlossberg.

Bernie O'Hare said...

We have (1) the word of a state rep who saw Schlossberg do what he did; (2) the admission of a state rep who admitted he was absence and gave no one authority to vote in his absence; and (3) Schlossberg's failure to refute the accusation when I posted it on his state rep facebook page. Instead of responding, he went on to something else. That is a tacit admission on his part. I will save that Facebook page and sent it on to Metcalfe for his state ethics inquiry

What is almost as troubling as Schlossberg casting two votes (he voted himself also), is that ghost voting appears to be common practice even though it isn't legal. Where is the investigation into THAT?

The part that confuses me is why there are no controls on who is voting? Shouldn't you need an ID badge, or a key or something that activates the ability to vote at that station? Such technology would cost about $10 per station. Install that, and you have to have complicity in order for this to happen.

Common sense says that we safeguard voting with things like identification but then this would diminish the ability to stack votes. Same goes for reps being held to account for ghost voting or better yet precluded from the act. It would diminish the ability to stack votes.

I still laugh at the fact that there are elections that have a greater turnout than there are living registered voters.

I won't comment on guilt or innocence, but I work at Amazon, where every employee needs their badge just to activate the door to let you in. Not to mention to clock in and out. So why doesn't the most expensive legislature in the known Universe ($200, $300 million a year to operate) have a machine that they have to scan at their badge to verify their presence in chambers and also to cast a vote?
I think we taxpayers should start demanding that representatives have to clock in and out in Harrisburg and post their timecards publicly.

7:10, Here's what is interesting. The newspaper in the geographic area of two of the state reps reported as having been ghost voted ran a story. But Schlossberg's ghost vote has not been reported in The Morning Call. Now it IS Christmas and the reporter who covers Harrisburg is a good guy and has not been shy about telling things as he sees them. He has reported on the ghost voting but has not named Schlossberg, likely bc he has no more evidence than Metcalfe and has not spoken to Schlossberg. I believe the evidence that exists is good enough.

I'm not sure the video enables you to see every desk. I have confronted Schlossberg about this on his state rep page. He has gone on to talk about other things, but has been slent in the face of this accusation. That implies guilt.

Ben, You have just been handed a Christmas present by Schlossberg. And though you did support Tom Muller over Scott Ott, like many other Republicans, you have for the most part been a cog in the party machine, including a stint as your local party's Exec Director. I think I can safely call you a partisan although I did not call you a partisan hack. Unless you give Democrats a reason to vote for you, you are going to lose. On your Facebook page, you claim to have studied "political science" at DeSales. Dis you graduate? Do you have a Master's degree, like Schlossberg? Do you have any real life's experience? Do you still live with your parents? What have you ever done about the lack of transparency in government? Did you advocate for campaign finance reform, like Fegley did? Did you speak out against the abuses of the Pawlowski administration, like Scott Armstron or Lou Hershman did? What exactly have you done except pose for pictures with people who are better known than you? Don't mistake my condemnation of Schlossberg, who like you never had to work for anything, as support for you. I'd much rather see someone run who could win. In that district, it would almost certainly have to be a Democrat. You are not quite ready for this leap and will just be wasting campaign money. Try to get someone in your party to run who can actually win. You should wait.

Here is a video from a Pennsylvania new station WGAL, about ghost voting. it is unbelievable..

Ghost Voting Common Practice In Pa. House

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CrMpvwdeag

they literally rig their voting button. why? to cast a vote but even more important to collect a per diem ...they can collect every penny of their per diem with out being on Harrisburg. lets see if the two politicians who weren't there, were paid a per diem.

a judge gets hammered for emails that are stupid and frat boyish, and he gets suspended. ok I get it...
a state senator or congressman is on a plane to Florida , not only casting votes all day long but collecting a per diem . Basically saying FU tax payers , I will bill you for the 150.00 per day even though I am not on the floor or in Harrisburg. and not one thing happens to the crooked politician...something is very wrong with this system.

You are out of your mind. I know some of the people who post on here and I can tell you with out hesitation, they are disgusted by this guy and his antics including his pathetic biased blog. He is everything that is wrong in regards to politics.

In fact you forgot to mention how he and Ed Pawlowski are very very very good friends. Based on your weird logic, that would put Schloss on the naughty list waiting for the feds and or the state to come knocking at his door soon.

But hey, he is a great guy, who graduated from Muhlenberg. This is a very pathetic selfish individual who dislikes any and all opposition . This is a guy , based on his writings , might have some other issues, that need not be mentioned in this forum.

In fact , he also uses good liberal Alinsky tactics when it comes to opposing views or opposing parties. no need to look any further than his blog to support this statement. just like he was taught by his good political buds in the city. He is not alone. He is as slimy as one can be with out going to jail. He will mess up and will be held responsible for his scams. It might start with his ghost voting. WE know for a fact, this was not his first time in doing this. This was the first time he was exposed\ bc his buddy was not even present, and did not give permission to the warm and fuzzy Schlossberg. This is going to get real hot , real fast , and Schlossberg and his minions in the party know that to be a fact.

We will be sure to give him a call Monday morning or right after the new year.

The comment at 8:33 has been deleted. The same or a similar comment has been posted and deleted about 30 times. My reason for deletion is it is a lie. Cunningham had nothing to do with Schlossberg, who actually got his start as a flunkie for Jenn Mann. I consider her ethically challenged as well. So the troll has been and will continue to be deleted. Your reference to Alinsky is misplaced. I believe people like you use that dishonest argument to justify your own personal attacks.

Whatever entity created Schlossberg it really doesn't matter . He is here now and is the State Rep of record and needs to man up and answer for his misgivings . I don't care if he's depressed or handicapped .. Anybody that can falsify a vote for an absentee colleague that will affect the taxes that I pay needs to be ousted or resign whichever comes first . Schlossberg is a shill for all liberal politics therefore supports Wolf and his out of control taxation platform . Time for you to go Mikey . You can't be trusted !
