BREAKING: Beemer Sworn in As New Attorney General

Beemer OathBruce Beemer is now Pennsylvania’s Attorney General.

Beemer was sworn into office within the last few minutes after being unanimously confirmed by the State Senate Judiciary Committee and the entire body earlier today.

Initially the First Deputy Attorney General during Kane’s tenure, Beemer testified against her and took Gov. Wolf’s offer to become Inspector General in July. Wolf then nominated Beemer for the position after Kane’s conviction and resignation.

Governor Wolf has released the following statement:

“Bruce Beemer has the unique experience and skillset as a prosecutor, lawyer and administrator to begin the healing necessary to put the Attorney General’s office back on track. He is trusted by the rank-and-file members of the office and understands better than anyone what must be fixed to restore the public trust. I thank the Senate for their swift confirmation and vote of confidence in Bruce and I look forward to his continued public service to the people of Pennsylvania as Attorney General.”

UPDATE: State Senator and GOP AG nominee John Rafferty issued the following statement:

“I was proud to support the confirmation of Bruce Beemer as our Attorney General,” Rafferty said. “Bruce Beemer is an experienced leader who will help to refocus efforts in the Office of Attorney General on keeping our families safe. With Bruce Beemer in the Office, my hope is that stability will take root.

“In November, Pennsylvanians will have a clear choice in the race for Attorney General. Josh Shapiro has no prosecutorial experience, will continue the failed Kane agenda and is running for Attorney General to set himself up for future political offices. I have served as a deputy attorney general, pledged to remove politics from the office and will restore the leadership necessary to focus efforts on protecting Pennsylvania families, including attacking the heroin/opioid epidemic, protecting our children and seniors from abuse and issues affecting Pennsylvania consumers.

“Once elected, I look forward to working with the qualified, dedicated and hardworking Pennsylvanians working at the Office of Attorney General on a shared mission of protecting this Commonwealth.”

UPDATE 2: Montgomery County Commissioner and Democratic AG nominee Josh Shapiro has also released a statement:

“We hope today’s confirmation helps put the people’s business first, from holding powerful interests accountable when they rip us off or pollute our drinking water to taking on the scammers targeting seniors, the illegal guns on our streets and the heroin epidemic decimating our communities,” Shapiro Campaign Manager Joe Radosevich said. “These are the issues that matter and what Josh Shapiro will focus on as the people’s Attorney General.”

“Clearly, putting Pennsylvanians first is a scary thing for Senator Rafferty and the Harrisburg insiders he’s spent over a dozen years voting for as a full-time politician, which is why they’re lobbing desperate attacks at Josh.”

    Teapart(y) repeats DD’s insult and thinks he is being clever. Poor thing. So dumb. I wonder if a FOXtard troll has ever been as owned as “Teapart(y)” is owned here.

  2. Teaparty says:

    Diano, saw your post on abortion. Shame your mom didn’t get that advice before you were born.

  3. rsklaroff says:

    # d4:

    Illustrative of how pro-choicers are not credible when objective data exist is his denial of the fact that pro-choicers consider themselves TRUE feminists.

    Harbor your opinion, but don’t dissemble…as you [and those you channel] in most other contexts.

    Robert B Sklaroff MD

    “pro-lifers feel pro-choicers are denigrating womanhood”

    No. That’s not it at all. Though some might say it, they are making a bullsh*t point they don’t believe to attract people, like Trump saying he’ll be a great president for black people.

    I’m pro-choice and would increase the number of weeks to 9 months more than your current age, so your mom could still get one.

  5. maryianne says:

    Will the emails be released or deep sized? The public has a right to know what was going on with email exchanges.

  6. John Smith says:

    Prolife people want to control women, including their vulvas.

  7. Robert B Sklaroff MD says:

    @ “@rsklaroff”:

    pro-lifers do not view women as property and, thus, hyperbolic claims only constitute fearmongering

  8. John Smith says:

    Mr. Tom Corbett is going to be the next attorney general.

  9. @rsklaroff says:

    If womanhood involves women going back to being viewed as a piece of property who are unable to make their own decisions, then that must really stink. We’re not going to see eye to eye on this topic.

  10. Marie says:

    Agreed PA-Gr

    Toomey has done nothing to deserve a 2nd term. And his refusal to speak the truth about Trump proves he puts politics over Country.

    I will vote for McGinty.

  11. maryT says:

    McGinty is another Kathleen Kane—shallow

  12. PA Grandparent says:

    There was a time I would have voted for Toomey; but McGinty is clearly the better candidate. Toomey had five and a half years and did nothing. His fear-mongering ads are insulting.

  13. Chris Martinez says:

    pro life peeples aint got no respeck for womans.

  14. Robert B Sklaroff MD says:

    @ “@rsklaroff”:

    We need not rehash the abortion controversy here, but just know that your broad-brush condemnation of people who act out of faith is insensitive, problematic and serves to perpetuate unnecessary conflict; pro-lifers feel pro-choicers are denigrating womanhood.

  15. John Smith says:

    Mr. Tom Corbett will be the next attorney general.

  16. @rsklaroff says:

    Well hate to break it to you, but if you’re anti-choice then you have no respect for women being able to make their own decisions about their body. Women and their significant other should be able to make that decision. Lawmakers should mind their own business. Also, pro-life is a very misleading term.

  17. HaHaHa says:

    OK you TEA-guzzling woman-hater. Whatever you say. Toomey going down. Trumpy going down.

    Next up for Hillary will be your man-crush in 2020.

  18. Robert B Sklaroff MD says:

    @ “@rsklaroff”:

    You AGAIN demonstrate your pro-Dem bias when you group all pro-lifers into a “woman-hater” category.

  19. HaHaHa: Convicted Felon says:

    So, I guess Beemer is the one Democrat that Wolf could find who hadn’t been arrested yet? Good for him. He’ll keep the seat very warm until Rafferty gets there.

  20. @rsklaroff says:

    My comment about Rafferty had no connection to Kane. Rafferty is a woman hater because he voted for the horrible anti-abortion bill that is going through the PA legislature.

  21. David Diano says:

    “We hope today’s confirmation helps put the people’s business first, from holding powerful interests accountable…”

    What people on Josh’s list weren’t held accountable by Kane or wouldn’t be by Castor?

    Kane and Castor weren’t Wolf’s hand-picked stooges.

  22. Zakrey Bissell says:

    That’s great congrats and he will be a great Attorney General until January of 2017.

  23. rsklaroff says:

    @ “.”:

    When you claim Josh will win because John supported confirmation [“Eww Rafferty supports this guy? Oh, and you’re not going to be the next AG woman-hater. Josh Shapiro will be the next AG.”], you reflect bias…for both supported honoring Wolf’s nominee to replace the corrupt-KK.

  24. Whistleblower says:

    Observer don’t hold your breath!! Waiting for Beemer to even address corruption. It’s Wolfs guy. Wolf took 300 k off Local 98. McGinty closer to 600 k Shapiro 180 k at least that doesn’t include what he funneled thru Ryan Boyer from the Laborers Union. Fresh Starts and Integrity just for the cameras. Wink Wink

  25. Whistleblower says:

    WHAT IN THE SWEET JESUS FFFFFFF AM I READING BELOW!??!? Are y’all gonna act like you don’t see that mental patient chit ?

  26. Unsanctioned R says:

    Wonder if Beemer is that fat guy who comes to the rest-stop every Wednesday and Friday. He definitely looks familiar. Would have to see his cock to know for sure.

  27. Apull says:

    Should have been Alan Kennedy Shaffer

  28. . says:

    Eww Rafferty supports this guy? Oh, and you’re not going to be the next AG woman-hater. Josh Shapiro will be the next AG.

  29. bungy says:

    Yes He Does.

  30. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    Does Frank Fina live at High Street and Washington Street, Pottstown?

  31. PA Grandparent says:

    I want to see that EMail Report. I want to know what my tax dollars were going toward.

  32. Not Really Beemer says:

    Even still, afraid of Bruce Castor. Fabulous.

  33. Michael says:

    Frank Fina is laughing at all of you.
