State Senator Boscola Accused of Drunken Assault at Harrisburg Bar


I have attempted to contact Benuck and Senator Boscola without success. A manager at Brickhaus tells me she was not working last night, and will inquire with the owner. But she also told me he probably won't call back because it could affect his business.

A few hours after this blog posted, The Inky's Commonwealth Confidential ran with it after speaking to Boscola. The Senator admits she was at the bar, which apparently is a Republican hangout, admits she was tossed, but denies hitting anyone. She declines to say whether she was drinking, although that seems highly likely.

There are also accounts at PolitcsPa and The Express Times.

Boscola had statements for everyone but the person who broke the story.

No reports yet. This is really big if indeed true.

Bernie O'Hare said...

But is it? I have placed a call to Boscola's office and am trying to contact this woman.

True or not, I never understood why she gets re-elected...

Big Ed said...

If Teddy Kennedy could survive Chappaquiddick politically Boscola can pimp smack some loud mouth whippersnapper while highly intoxicated.

I thought she was clean and sober these days. Shame on her if this turns out to be true. That demon alcohol never sleeps..

Bernie O'Hare said...

I think I just got Lisa to start talking to me again after several years, and then I post this.

It's a facebook rant by someone I don't know. I considered not posting it at all, but decided to let it go and assume everyone is smart enough to weigh this tale with caution. Because Boscola is an elected state senator, I decided to go with it.

This story is likely not newsworthy unless it is developed with more detail. But it passes the bottom feeding blogger test.

Yeah, That is old news. The question is whether what is alleged last night actually happened.

If she were a young guy and a state senator, it would be a problem. Don't minimize this.

The potty mouth drunk who says she prefers giving blowjobs to getting screwed (like we needed to know that, Lisa?) is back to boozing on the taxpayer dime. That ruddy complexion indicates she never quit drinking. What a mess of a human being she is. Resign and get real help. Save your miserable life, Lisa. It's been a complete waste to this point. Save it.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Look, if you want to mention her affinity for that, go ahead, but don't get all sanctimonious and say "like we needed to know that." If we didn't need to know that, then why say it? Also, there's no evidence she was drinking on the public dime, as you put it. I agree that Boscola needs to stop drinking, bit let's be fair here.

I can't. She did say that years ago. I don't like it. I did delete it once on another thread and was reminded Boscola did say it. I agree it is cheap and crude. While I think Boscola has a drinking problem, I don 't like seeing a dumb statement brought up all the time.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Fecal, very funny. It is so funny I wanted to keep it up there, but please let's not make these kinds of remarks that can be mistaken as sexist.

But you can talk about my keister.

Anonymous said...

Hard to believe she made those blowjob statements and is still in office. They should be repeated every day until she stops charging taxpayers for her bad habits and the rehab to dry her out. She's why politicians are held in such low esteem, regardless of their views. Did she drive from the bar? Did she endanger others' lives? Parents of young girls should show her as an example of the worst kind of female one could possibly be.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Her drinking and an apparent bar spat do not make her the worst kind of female one could possibly be. It might mean she needs some help.

Anonymous said...


She is quick to play the 'woman' card.

Anonymous said...

No, she's one of the worst example of an adult female I've seen. She has a position of prominence and influence and show's no self-control or dignity. She's a strong example of what young girls should strive never to be. What an embarrassment. She makes the other 5% of politicians look bad.

Bernie, I would only go near your keister if you purchase a bunz of steel VHS tape, wax, bleach your anus and go on a juice diet for 1 month. After that is complete it would be my pleasure to milk your prostate.

BOH me and the twink used to be an item but now only see each other in passing at the Green Door while waiting for a vidi booth. It's really awkward but there is only one local adult book store that has glory holes.

Well, I'm starting my juice diet immediately.

I have video proving Miss Emilie is leaving out a lot of facts and started the incident herself. Rumors out of Philly that this is a planted and planned episode. The truth will come out.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Post the video to youtube and shoot me a link. If this is a planted episode, why would the Facebook comment be set so only friends can see it. Why has the alleged victim not responded to my requests to talk to her? I am sure that there are two or three sides to this story, but the planned and planted accusation seems a bit far fetched.

She's a Dem in a Republican bar!Yes she could have a problem . But don't convict her with out knowing ANY FACTS. Myself, a conservative that would hang unscrupulous politicians from bridges say Ms. Boscola needs a fair shot at her defense. Ya,she has a history but this does not mean she violated any rules because of the issue. She's a Dem but I like her sprite, and she's not a thief.We have people in this state that steal us blind and we are not charging them because our Atty.General,as good looking as she is thinks the allegations are racists! This is bullshit.OLD PETER.

With you on the part where you wish she would stop drinking. Don't like to see the slow motion train wrecks that happen to people, and being in the public eye makes it more difficult. I am fairly sure that she was sober for a period of time, I hope this is a wake up call for her.

Hmm, a lively debate over the cash gifts bill. Were there any "large" tabs at the bar that any one individual picked up?

Bernie O'Hare said...

Since there was a lobbyist in the house, that's a safe bet.

Your here in this county standing in more traffic because of poor planing and never been to a Harrisburg political bar.Reason is because you can't afford to stay over night== so you don't know,do you?

She has been getting more and more rowdy over the past few months. Friends have tried to get her to tone it down. Now this nonsense again.

One day this will be a problem she won't be able to talk her way out of.

She just cannot seem to stay out of trouble. She should not be in any Bar. She is just a loose cannon.

The problem with Harrisburg is that too many of its Senators and Legislators go to these damn bars and conduct business. Republicans and Democrats who both frequent these places are just as guilty as the idiot who loses their temper and cold-cocks someone. Going to a bar after business and discussing the days business is one thing. To go to a bar and argue about done deals is another. Lisa has to learn that the Republicans will do what they want, when they want, and until her party takes control of the state and the senate it will stay that way.

Anonymous said...

We really do need to hold our politicians to some level of respect. Too many on the left, sorry but you know it's true, just turn a blind eye to far too many in their party. The right tries to purge while the left embraces.

Could be the right sees bad behavior for what it is and the left just sees themselves. You would think all people would teach their children better and therefore recognize it in adults. Sadly too many just want who they want and don't care what comes with them....

Boscola is an embarrassment. I knew people like her my whole life. Drunken, nasty people who cannot get through the day without getting hammered.

I'm a Democrat who never voted for her and I'm not sure keeps doing it.

There is only another side if the other person hit her first. Assault is assault. There is no justification.

Boscola shouldn't even BE in a bar with her reputation. Obviously, she doesn't give a shit what her constituents think. It's time to send her a message.

Yeah right. She's unopposed in a gerrymandered Democrat district. Democracy is dead in much of the Lehigh Valley this year.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I am sorry. There were two offensive comments at 7:09. I thought I had deleted one of them, but somehow missed it. I just got to it now.

Bernie O'Hare said...

8:56, that was Bernie Kieklak.

Anonymous said...

who the fuck cares that she jokingly said that she likes giving blowjobs rather than getting laid. If a male republican state senator quipped that he would rather give head to his partner than receive it, he would be viewed as a giving compassionate man.

Anywho, I have voted for Lisa Boscola each election, but had difficulty with my choice given her difficulties, but she was the lesser of two questionable candidates. I support her opposition to property taxes plus she loved The Rolling Stones...gotta respect that! But, I hated when she, Karen "the liar" Beyer, and Jennifer Mann were the united muskateers for a bit.

We got Karen out of office, Jen resigned, but Lisa still is fighting a good fight. Lisa is much better than those other two. TRUST ME!

I hope Lisa did not punch/hit/slap/touch the accuser, EVEN if it was in self defense. IT STILL IS NOT RIGHT!!! (assholes). She should have called the police, asked the owner for assistance or walked away.

If Senator Boscola did get physical with the other "woman" (using that term loosely, she will no longer have my vote.

Also, I never believed she was sober after 30 days rehab that she entered after getting a DUI. First, a person does not "simply" get a DUI. They usually get away with it hundreds of times; thus indicating a pattern of addictive behavior. She went into rehab to quash public opinion calling for her ouster and to appease the court for leniency and an ARD disposition. Her comment in the morning call after her rehab that she will never drink alcohol again and she now prefers her favorite drink...tea with lemon, was and is complete and utter bullshit. Mind like a steal trap.

There is just lots of class oozing from the whole situation. Further proof that what goes on Facebook never stays on Facebook, despite whatever settings used. I'm guilty at times, too but I'm prepared to answer for whatever I'd post.

The Senate speaker getting involved is just absurd. Trolling is contagious.

Had this actually happened would there not be some formal complaint or charge in a police blotter or newspaper? Obviously not here, but in the Harrisburg area?

Just curious

One thing that is seldom done ,if ever , is a look at her voting record. She voted to allow swaptions and also for electrical deregulation. No one calls her on that but obviously she never understood either issue. Lately you can`t think of one thing she has done. Time for her to go!

Bernie O'Hare said...

Something happened. Exactly what is unclear, but Boscola concedes she was kicked out of a bar. There is no police report bc the victim cooled off and wants to let it go.

I wish you would have brought out the news when Karen Beyer hit her staff member. H'burg hushed it up, which was wrong. Don't recall you ever reporting on it. If Lisa hit someone and it can be proved.... she needs to pay the price. Screw h'burg for continuing to sweep things under the rugs..........

Bernie O'Hare said...

Um, I posted this. Insofar as Beyer hitting a staff member is concerned, I tracked that down years ago, and there is nothing anyone can report bc nobody is willing to discuss it. Your statement is irresponsible, just like your anonymity. How would you like it if someone anonymously accused you, in a blog, of hitting someone, four years ago?
