House GOP Leaders Call For DNC Host Committee to Refund PA

DNCC3The state House is getting in on the debate of what the DNC Host Committee should have done with the $4 million surplus they finished with. 

House Speaker Mike Turzai, Majority Leader Dave Reed, and the House Republican leadership sent a letter to Chair Tom Perez, and DHC Host Committee Chair and former Governor Ed Rendell calling for them to refund the $4 million surplus to Pennsylvania.  

“Pennsylvania taxpayers want and need our money back,” the letter begins.  

The letter compares the grants the Committee gave to walking around money (WAM).  

“You also chose to hand out unaccountable WAM-like ‘grants’ to local nonprofits, including $75,000 for the ‘Rendell Center for Civics and Civic Engagement.’”

Governor Wolf has already called for the Auditor General to conduct an audit of the DNC Host Committee, and said he was “disappointed” in the decision.

    Irene McLaughlin Clark

    After graduating from law school, the candidate has been employed in a variety of positions handling civil litigation and divorce and custody proceedings. In 1993, the candidate was appointed to the Pittsburgh Municipal Court, where she continued to serve until 2003. Since that time, the candidate served in a variety of positions and maintained a private law practice addressing the problem of municipal blight. Although the candidate’s record demonstrates a commitment to justice and a strong work ethic, she has minimal experience that would lend itself to an appellate court position. The candidate has little courtroom experience as an advocate. Her experience with the rules of evidence and courtroom procedure is limited to the time she served as a Pittsburgh magistrate and Housing Court judge. The candidate candidly admitted that she had very limited experience as a trial or appellate advocate and no experience in writing briefs or opinions. This indicates to the commission that her exposure within the legal system is very narrow. Given the candidate’s minimal experience as outlined above, the commission does not recommend her candidacy for the Commonwealth Court.
