The Karen Beyer Comeback: Boscola's Seat?

Karen D Beyer, a former Republican State House member from Lower Saucon township, has made some changes in her life, big and small. seems to be positioning herself for a political comeback. For one thing, she looks completely different than she did when she was upset by newcomer Justin Simmons six years ago. So much so that I had to confirm with others that her Facebook profile really is her. Another change is that she now calls herself Karen Brown Beyer, kinda' like the Bethlehem Council member formerly known as Karen Dolan calls herself K Deirdre Dolan. But those are the cosmetic changes.

The big one is that the state house member once registered as a Republican has switched sides and is now a Democrat. She wants you all to join her for a golf outing to support State House candidate Phillips Armstrong on September 2, at anywhere from $100 to $1,000.

I like Phillips Armstrong and hope he wins, especially since his opponent is dangerously dumb. But I suspect the state legislator formerly known as Karen D is building her profile, and outside her district, because she has an eye on something.

Like Lisa Boscola's State Senate seat.

If Lisa decides not to run and goes for the NorCo Exec job, the door opens for Karen.

She pathetically forced her son to run against Simmons. She is another vengeful Kane clone!

Has she stopped having fits of rage? Or belittling and physically attacking others?

Not a robot said...

I suspect that there are others who live in the district who have better Democratic bona fides that her.

Lisa is not running for County Exec, so no need to worry about Beyer.

Beyer is done. TJ Rooney would never let her embarrass the party. After Simmons beat her, he hired her for his lobbying firm. She was fired within 2 months.

Stick with cold calling for xerox machines Karen

Why doesn't Karen move to Allentown to challenge King Edwin. She's known on the south side from her time representing that area.

Couldn't be any worse than Pawlowski (although Beyer is close).

Byer lacks people skills and will only, represent self serving interests.

Karen always did better with the people skills when she was trashed. Classic Beyer story...one time her bill came up on final passage on the floor (a bill that was important to her). Keep in mind it was early afternoon here. She was so drunk and basically passed out in the back of the Capitol rotunda that she asked them to postpone running her bill that day.

The question is, what took her so long to switch to democrat? Everyone knew she wasn't a republican. It must've been torture inside pretending to be someone you're not.

I was always amazed it took a 23 year old to expose her. It should've been done years before that.

So, Byer has finally come out of the closet. Geez, like no one would of guessed it! We all knew it. If, it quacks like a duck ( democrat), looks like a duck( democrat) then it must be a duck ( democrat).

A similar ploy worked for Arlen Spector.

I can give you a partial list of the shenanigans that proves Byer is unfit for any public office. So, here is the shorten reversion of my list. She bought meals for her friends on the tax payers dime multiple times, as a state representative. Also, on occasion she would show up on the job drunk & on the floor, as well. Plus, her vote was for sale by whom, she slept with. Then she had an affair with representative John Taylor. Also, during her tenure she acquired a lengthy list of fired employees within a 5 year period,24 to be exact. Equally, reflective of bad behavior is the incident where, she slapped her chief of staff in the face during a heated altercation of which, I would consider borderline assault. So, you have to ask yourself? Who in their right mind would vote for this women? No one! She is just a power driven, underhanded and self absorbed individual.

Can we get someone who is not and alcoholic in that position? It would be a big step up for the distict

@4:34 the slapping incident occurred during a work related weekend in Philadelphia. Anyone in the private sector would have been fired. She was coddled by Harrisburg...sadly!

Byer is a disgrace. She should stay out of politics and not, try to destroy people's lives.

I for one don't want an underhanded, lying drunk to be a public servant. Byer should stay in the private sector.

Byer is another self serving person that doesn't represent the constituents. I would never vote for a party animal that only, wastes tax payers time and money!!!!

@4:34 Thanks for sharing this insightful information. I would never vote for such a self absorbed, underhanded and power driven person. We need someone that will represent the constituents interests and not be fulfilling their own needs. I want someone that has integrity and scruples, which Byer has none.

@10:41 I have a comment to share that is fact based. It is well known that Karen Brown Byer was attached to the hip with former speaker John Perzel. In fact Perzel was indicted! And it is well known that Byer would make fundraising phone calls for him , in her Harrisburg office. So, essentially she was using her official business time for fundraising. Hmm! They are both two peas in the same pod.

No need to worry about Karen ever being a public servant. She has created too many enemies within district 131.

Beyers is disreputable. Enough said!

@11:28. one would hope that is but seems today the more corrupt you are the better your chances. no doubt she IS corrupt! btw, have never seen mikey's name on any bar exam list!

Anonymous said...

Not only is Beyer disreputable. But alsa, she is corrupt and unethical. Why on earth would she consider even running for any public office? Especially, since she was so badly defeated by a 23 year old in district 131.

Bernie please tell that this is a joke. I hope and pray that Karen Beyre isn't really considering running for a public office.
