8/26 Ups & Downs

Hacks, Super PACs and a long-awaited report on some rather lewd emails. See who made this week’s list!

Up ArrowDown ArrowPat Toomey. Senator Toomey is doing his best in this campaign, the problem is that his best may not be good enough. On the one hand, he got the endorsement of Gabby Giffords for his work on gun safety and secured $1.1 million worth of supportive TV ads from a conservative 501(c)(4). On the other hand, his race was moved to toss-up status. Unfortunately for the incumbent, Pennsylvania may be a state where Donald Trump brings more harm than good to the down-ballot GOP candidates. Regardless of the outcome, the next three months are set to be the toughest fight of Pat Toomey’s political life.

Down ArrowDCCC. It’s not every week that Russian hackers become involved with the politics of Southeast PA. The Hill was sent memos and documents stolen from the DCCC that revealed the party’s attempts to recruit other nominees in the PA-6 and PA-7 races. It was no secret that Mike Parrish and Mary Ellen Balchunis weren’t the favorites of the Democratic establishment but to have it officially confirmed makes the party look ineffective. Not to mention that on Monday a Republican Super PAC, the Congressional Leadership Fund, pledged to spend $1.1 million against PA-8 Democratic nominee Steve Santarsiero. The DCCC can’t afford many more cycles where they come up empty handed in SEPA.   

Up Arrow1Kathleen Kane. “If I get taken out of here in handcuffs, what do you think my last act will be?” the former Attorney General once warned. It now appears that Kane’s pledge to take her enemies down with her will be fulfilled. Doug Gansler is sending out notices to state employees that they’re mentioned in his report on the pornographic emails and with Bruce Castor’s tenure set to end on Tuesday, we may soon see its release. Plus, there’s the trouble that Philly DA Seth Williams has gotten himself into. Kane wasn’t the first to go away in handcuffs and she probably won’t be the last either.


Down ArrowEd Rendell. For a man who makes a career out of being surrogate, you’d think he’d be better at it. Once again, the long-time member of Clintonworld managed to embarrass Bill and Hillary when he criticized their conduct concerning the Clinton Foundation. Rendell has always sold himself as a “straight-shooter”, but just how much friendly fire does he actually think he can get away with?



Down ArrowEric Papenfuse. We’ll be giving the Harrisburg Mayor a down arrow every week until he lifts his ridiculous ban of PennLive. We’ve now reached week eleven.





The tweet of the week is actually a string of tweets (click to read the whole series) from Max Marin on Philadelphia Councilman Bobby Henon’s silence about that whole FBI-raid-on-his-office-thing.
