WWWE Files: The Wicked Witch and the Beeping Cabbie
When Officer McConagle reminded her that people can live where they want in this country, she told the patrolman that once elected to Borough Council, she'd have the Easton Police Department removed.
Officer McConagle spoke to the neighbors about this incident, learning that Mezzacappa had told one of them to "take your black ass back to Philadelphia." Mezzacappa also used the word "niggers," and the Easton cabbie later told the patrolman that he heard her use this term, too.
Though a candidate for West Easton Borough Council at the time, Mezzacappa told police she was moving out "because of these people."
This is the person who was endorsed by the Save Gracedale mob. This is the person who was celebrating with Scott Parsons after he defeated Ron Angle in the County Council race. Does this mean they are racists like Tricia, too? No, much as I detest their lynch mob mentality, they were simply fooled by her.
So was I.
