FULibs, said this: "Any half baked liberal can sit on the sidelines, write half truths on websites and spread doom and gloom from left wing intelectually [sic] dishonest scientists." He was angry at the time with another bottom feeding blogger.
You can't blame Tiny Timm (that's mm, damn it) for hating bloggers. We make reporters look good! But you sure can question his judgment in going on a fishing trip with Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan and developer Lou Pektor, especially since Tenges shepherded zoning changes for a 320-home Lou Pektor development in Lower Nazareth. Although Tenges claims he paid his own way, this should have been a career-ending escapade.
Instead, Tenges is going to be doling out gaming grants. Last night, Northampton County Council appointed him to the Gaming Authority. Before that happened, Republican Council members received an email giving them their marching orders from the local committee.
Ann McHale tried to table the appointment because there was no letter from the Nazareth COG, endorsing Tenges. But County Executive John Stoffa produced the letter, which he had just received. And the vote was 8-1 in Tenges' favor, with McHale casting the sole No vote. In fact, Angle called Tenges a "man of distinction."
I agree with the stinky part.
Local parties, whether they are Democrat or Republican, really have no business telling Council members how to vote. But this is good news for Tenges. Imagine the fishing trips he can go on now!
