Montgomery County Commissioner, Bruce Castor has decided not to make a gubernatorial run. Despite poor approval ratings for Governor Tom Corbett, a seemingly ripe time for Castor to challenge for the top political job in the state, he says, the demands on his time as a commissioner, lawyer and finding time for family led him to the decision. Castor also says, with strong party support for Corbett, the task would be overwhelming.
Human trafficking and the impact it has on its victims is the subject of legislation. State Repn Daylin Leach has crafted bill 915, also known as the “Safe Harbor” bill. Leach says, young girls forced into prostitution need help.
“They deserve protection of the Child Welfare System, not to be re-victimized by incarceration in the juvenile justice system.”
Leach adds, over the last 18 years 12-hundred to 16-hundred children have been arrested per year on prostitution crimes.
Pollster Dr. Terry Madonna is out with a new Franklin and Marshall Poll indicating weak support for Governor Corbett. It indicates only 25 percent think he’s doing an excellent or good job.
“He Angered, beyond furious, the supporters of legendary football coach Joe Paterno.”
Madonna says, many people feel Corbett Should not have accepted, then rejected the Freeh Report. Others think Corbett should have charged Sandusky sooner while serving as Attorney General. Madonna was aguest on the WNPV Program, Comment Please By Univest with Darryl Berger Wednesday afternoon.
Intimidation and threats allegedly carried out by the Internal Revenue Service on Tea Party members is the latest black eye for a federal agency that is known for its harsh behavior. Pennsylvania Senator, Pat Toomey says, someone must be held accountable.
“Somebody needs to be fired there. This is totally beyond anything that’s acceptable.”
Toomey says, This episode certainly doesn’t seem like the kindlier and gentler I.R.S.
“I would find it disturbing if the I.R.S. were singling out liberal political organizations or any organizations based on what they believe or their political philosophy. Singling them out for extra scrutiny and punishment in the form of delayed recognition of their tax status. This is very, very disturbing.”
Toomey was a guest on the WNPV’s AM-Edition Tuesday morning with Darryl Berger
