Harrisburg Republicans have been getting emails like this from Karen Beyèr, sent to their pahousegop.com e-mail addresses:
From: Karen Beyer [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]Attached to these emails is a flyer from 7pointsconsulting.com (That is political consultant Mike Fleck's firm) inviting them to the cocktail party to elect Beyèr at $100 a pop.
Sent: Monday, October 13, 2014 6:25 PM
Subject: Please join me for a cocktail reception for Michael Beyer
Please join me and my family in our home for a cocktail reception for Michael.
He will be a great representative for the 131st, please come out and meet him.
This, of course, is exactly what started the Bonusgate prosecutions. So Beyer instead of a mad rush to buy tickets, she instead received an email from Rod Corey, Chief Counsel of the House Republican Legal Staff, telling her to stop using state email addresses to further her son's campaign.
There goes that damn Ethics Act again.
I guess porn would have been OK.
This little episode demonstrates that Beyèr, among other things, is a phony who pretends he is a Democrat while reaching out for Republican support, and breaking the law to do it. He is, as one other person has called him, a Democrat of convenience. He was registered Republican until just before deciding to circulate a nomination petition for his mom's old seat. Realizing he could never beat Simmons in a primary, he simply switched parties.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is on to him. He was thrown off the ballot as a Democrat after making a "knowing and material misrepresentation" that he was, in fact, an attorney. The truth is that he failed or never took the Bar exam. Those who signed his nomination petition, the Court concluded, were "materially misled."
He has continued to materially mislead the public. In campaign literature, this former intern claims falsely that he was a legislative aide. He also falsely claims to have worked at a securities arbitration clinic when the truth is that it was just a part of a required class when he attended law school.
The Beyèr camp, issued this statement: "I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries. Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time."
