Ardo Explains Why He Resigned as Kane’s Spokesman (VIDEO)

Chuck Ardo gave his first TV interview since announcing his intention to step down as Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s spokesman.

Ardo spoke to Dennis Owens of ABC27 and Owens brought up the fact that Ardo lasted much longer than his six predecessors.

“That’s kinda like claiming a marriage that ends in divorce worked out fine for a short period of time,” Ardo responded. “It’s still a marriage that ends in divorce.”

“She really doesn’t make any effort to communicate with the senior staff,” he continued before criticizing her secretive tendencies. “Anybody who believes that, you know, government ought to operate in silence and secrecy needs to move to North Korea.”

“You can’t do the job when you fundamentally disagree with that position,” Ardo concluded.

It’s unclear who will replace him and become the Attorney General’s eighth spokesperson.

  1. HaHaHa aka Brett Cott

    HARRISBURG –Bonusgate defendent Brett Cott received a sentence of 21 to 60 months on three charges this morning.

    He also received three fines totaling $11,000 and was told to make restitution to the state of $50,000. The sentence was imposed by Dauphin County Judge Richard Lewis, who rejected Mr. Cott’s defense attorny’s plea for probation. Mr. Cott was found guilty on three charges: conflict of interest, theft of services, and conspiracy.

    I can get the rest of the story plus your picture that was in the paper since it’s all public knowledge. Now I have to be honest this was a Pennsylvania paper, maybe New York dosent know about you being arrested.

  2. Oh look!! The pathetic RETARD has made a promise! As if his comments don’t get deleted every time he posts DD’s address … LOSER!!!

    DD – you need to use the old posts to get a restraining order. His wife says he is unbalanced. Says I should get one too.

  3. And to be clear I will never mention or post about your (Diano’s) address again. I would much rather focus on your blind loyalty to Kane and how the hell you could actually support her.

  4. See that makes sense, now doesn’t that feel good to say that instead of saying that there are other David Diano’s out there and my info was wrong and whatever other nonsense you have said in the past?….Maybe now people can stop asking about that and focus on the real reasons they don’t like you.

  5. DD – I am starting to think you are a warped loser too. Why would you respond substantively to that pathetic RETARD troll? Seriously ….

  6. Though he and his buddies do seem obsessed with filing lawsuits, I don’t think Fina will be able to sue anyone for pointing out what these two women had to say about him after they came into contact with that creep, Fina:

    1) Sheilah Novasky

    She met Frank Fina for the first time while she was waiting to testify before a grand jury in the state’s case against DeWeese. She said she sat in a small room with seven men – including Fina.

    Fina repeatedly asked bout two things: How many women on DeWeese’s staff were sleeping with Manzo? And did she know about Frameli’s “breast enhancements”?
    Novasky then went before the grand jury. Fina asked her nothing about breasts or Manzo’s sexual relationships.

    “I think it was for their own amusement,” Novasky said. “There is a line between intimidation and interrogation and they crossed the lines whenever they concentrated on the sexual antics, which had nothing to do with [the case] …”

    2) Melissa Frameli

    Melissa remembers: “Fina was saying that we were exchanging political emails on state time and that it was illegal … It’s pretty sick that they were doing the same thing that they were screaming at us for – and our emails were related to political work, they weren’t degrading toward women or towards men, they weren’t pornographic in nature.”

    She recalled that Fina was fixated on her personal relationship with DeWeese’s chief of staff, Michael Manzo, and whether she had spent her bonus money on a “boob job.” He accused her of “whoring around,” unleashing a string of profanity and “F-bombs,” she said. …

    “He was completely putting me down and saying I was going to get in trouble for sleeping with my boss. Screaming at me, and saying that I used my bonus to get a boob job and that I was a disgrace, basically . . . I felt very degraded by him…”

    A sue-happy creep.

  7. SpongeBob-

    Gee. No one would ever use an address of their retired parents who are home all day to sign for things like deliveries/mail/packages, but instead prefer deliveries they can’t get because they are at work and have to go make extra trips/arrangements with fed-ex, ups, post-office, etc.


  8. David, I operate in cyberspace too but according to Amazon, the FEC etc… you do have a physical address. and it happens to list….your parents as the owner. Your websites used to list it as the address as well. So how did these politicians, vendors etc get that address? I didn’t make it up and it’s easy for anyone with a web browser that can bring up google can find.

  9. SpongeBob (or maybe myself)-

    You are saying exactly what a figment of my imagination would say. Though, most people realize that I would give myself a more intellectually challenging opponent to make it look good.

    For all your research into me, how do you keep missing the point that I operate in cyberspace and don’t have a physical office or business address?


    Maybe a perv alias is to attract/distract/expose posters like you who gravitate toward that sort of person as an ally?

  10. HaHaHa aka Brett Cott thanks for your confirmation all I needed. Nobody coming unglued here except every time someone posts hoe Fina had you arrested, convicted and put in jail. I’ll post the newspaper story here so there’s no doubt. It’s funny I don’t recall anything about you being wrongfully convicted. Why was that Brett?

    Diano-Offer still on the table for you.

  11. The troll is coming unglued again. it is funny to watch. But sad at the same time.

    Can’t wait for Fina to sue someone (he is sue-happy!!) for pointing out that he sent this to his white male buddies:

    How friggin racist is Frank Fina? And how friggin stupid is Seth Williams for believing Fina that he will hook him up with some of that Corbett Repervlican $$$. How’s that working’ out for you, Seth? Got your orange jump-suit ready?

  12. Diano- I admire you coming to the defense of Brett. It’s clear he has a dilemma if he admits it’s him. Plus, who knows what if anything Fina may be lining up after the Porngate report is issued. If he’s feeling vindictive no telling who he may go after civilly. But that’s his issue.

    Now you posting as SpongeBob would certainly explain your sexual fascination with children that you claim SpongeBob has if you were really that person why would you accuse yourself of such a heinous, vile act unless it interests you. The same with the mentally handicapped verbally abusing them would have to interest you if you were to accuse yourself of it.

    Interesting, let’s all try and have a nice quiet summer without all the accusations and deal with the facts especially since the report is now coming out next week with the Kane trial a few months after. Let’s call it a temporary truce.

  13. David,
    You simply could not be me. I would never allow myself to be a 50 something computing wannabe know-it all to have the pleasure of assuming my identity. Plus anyone who wants to talk tough but ducks questions like why he uses an address that’s owned by his parents for his business is too much a coward to be in the same category as a man like me. What I think is comical is you cry when you are attacked personally but don’t hesitate to act like a child yourself. So why is it you use mommies address for your business?

  14. Isaac L and Pat Unger-

    I think “Stauffer” is the poster I’ve dubbed: “DumberThanBagOfTrumpHats”.

    He’s stupid and juvenile enough to be “kanesdriver”, except he seems more likely local to SEPA instead of Pittsburgh.

    It’s hilarious that he thinks anyone would believe that local police would give a rat’s ass what’s posted on a political blog (especially considering the comments in Philly Inky and other online publications). You can’t get in trouble for insulting anonymous posters, as they have no reputations to protect and on a site like this, without actual logins, anyone could pose as anyone else.

    What if it turns out that I’ve been SpongeBob all along, and using him as a foil/fool, like Galileo used Simplicio? 🙂

  15. Isaac a new alias for HaHAHa. I think if there is a doubt of what Bret Cott did its only fair to post the newspaper story covering his conviction and imprisonment. People can draw their own conclusions and if Brett wants to say he has never posted on this site as HaHaHa then then he can go on the record here and now and say so.

  16. Thank you, Pat. Mr. Stauffer seems to have a bit of a glass jaw and to be demonstrating an unhealthy obsession with Messrs. Diano and Cott. The nonsense about saving comments and sending them to the “proper authorities” comes across as a bit delusional and infantile (even if true, I suspect they went directly into the “circular filing cabinet”). I usually tend to gloss over it, along with the obsessive copy-pasta and repeated (mostly off-topic) themes that pop up on every thread ad nauseam to get to the interesting commentary that is actually useful and expounds on the articles, but sometimes it’s too much of a draw and I find myself without context.

  17. Isaac – “Stauffer” is the same pathetic troll who posts as “SpongeBob” and Unsanctioned R(etard). He doesn’t know what he is talking about and is guessing that someone that Fina prosecuted is behind the truth about Fina coming out. The real Brett Cott may have a bone to pick with that troll. The troll said some pretty crazy stuff about Mr. Cott.

  18. HaHaHa aka Brett Cott aka Mrs. Stauffer- Now Brett you know lying can only get you into trouble. Frank Fina proved that when you were arrested, found guilty and put in jail. You and Diana can do whatever you want that’s why I made sure all the messages of falsely accusing a person of being a child molestor and your verbal abuse of mentally incapacitated children were saved and distributed to the proper authorities. Now who would people believe an ex-con who obsesses over the person who convicted him and a unemployed list seller who lives in the basement of his moms house. Give it a rest for a while.

  19. Mr. Stauffer – What makes you think HaHaHa is Brett Cott? I thought his handles were supposed to be Casablanca related.

  20. My husband is obsessed with “HaHaHa” and “David Diano.” My advice to them: GET RESTRAINING ORDERS. He is a very sick man. His life is such a mess that I could see him acting out against others. He is fat and pock-faced. He has no friends. and his Diabetes is getting worse. He is coming UNGLUED, actually.

  21. Mrs. Stauffer, now you wouldn’t be trying to fool anyone. I think you may be HaHaHu aka Brett Cott convicted and sent to jail by Frank Fina. Is prison where you learned to
    Imitate a woman. I’ve seen your picture. The thought of Brett wearing makeup in a dress makes me want to puke. But you probably did that in prison too. Have a nice day.

  22. For a while there my husband made me post under “Mrs. SpongeBob.” This one is much better. Anywho — he is a sick man. Please stop encouraging him. All he does is sit on the computer all day – posting conservative nonsense under 78 different names or on FB trying to get the attention of adolescent boys – again using different screen-names. He needs help.

  23. Oh boy. More heads are going to roll.

    “Castor asked for supplemental information from Doug Gansler, the former Maryland attorney general who was hired by Kane to lead the probe into lewd and offensive emails shared among state officials.

    That material will be provided to the office next week in the form of an “addendum,” but Gansler’s original report will remain unchanged.

    “At the earliest date available,” the report will be made public. “

  24. Marie: you have it right. Castor had enough of this disloyal A-hole and was fixing to fire him after the 31st. Ardo chose to resign before Bruce took him out. Make book on that. The guy was hurting, and Castor reamed him out. Chuck took his ball and went home.

  25. Total weird person Press person???? You want this person speaking for you?? Really

  26. Ardo was squealing to anyone who’d listen to him today— literally. If I were Kane, I’d keep him on a need to know basis as well. The whole situation is a real hoot. I wonder how they’ll have an takers from job seekers… they may want to get a spokesperson who speaks only a foreign language.

  27. Observer- Most of the senior staff from day one you are referring
    to were all appointed by Kane.

    DD – Tell us what was the name of the agent again

    HaHaHa- No matter how you want to sing it you are still
    Brett Cott living in New York arrested and prosecuted
    And put in jail by Frank Fina

  28. Not me — May 31, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    “I hear Someone close to her has been wearing a wire.”

    That was the pathetic retard troll (sometimes cross-dressing as “Jessica Myers”).

  29. I can see why she would keep things from “senior staff” – those are the same sneaks who had her sign a bunch of papers when she took office, then hid them from her until the special prosecutor came calling. I wouldn’t trust any of those snakes as far as I could shoot ’em. She should have cleaned house on Day One and gotten professional attornies in there. What she has now is a bunch of incompetent liars, who can’t get an attorney job anywhere else. Who would trust them other than Seth?

    Ardo thinks he is paving the way to his next job, but what he is really doing is blackballing himself from any future political job. What a snake.

  30. Oh great. That hack agent who was leaking stuff here finally got arrested. DD- What was his name again?

    Removed from Supreme Court: Perverts McCaffery and Eakin
    Removed from office: So many Corbett Pervs
    Publicly disgraced, demoted and humiliated: Frank Fina and Marc Costanzo
    Career over just like Kane’s: Seth Williams

  31. Well so far the only people arrested are;

    Kane’s Driver
    HaHaHa aka Brett Cott from New York

  32. kanesdriver — is he in jail yet? How about Seth Williams? Has he been indicted yet?

  33. SpongeBob-

    How the prosecutors and judges have handled the case against her is unprofessional. How the Corbett holdovers treated Kane is unprofessional. How the poster “kanesdriver” treated his boss, the AG, here is unprofessional.

  34. It was so nice when the New Yorker took the weekend off and his many personalities were nice and quiet….

  35. David,
    How Kane runs her Office is unprofessional. How Kane has handled her scandal is completely unprofessional. Kane promoting a sexual harasser is unprofessional. Ardo jumping off of her sinking ship is called saving face The guy isn’t trying to find a new gig. He worked most of his contract without getting paid.

  36. SpongeBob-

    When he was on “spin duty” he wasn’t trying to undermine his boss. Duh.

    This is completely unprofessional.

  37. Looked like he was ready for a nap the whole time. Was he in a recliner?

    The reason these hacks can’t work for Kane is that she threatens to bring down so many of their buddies – and potential future employers.

    This guy is a mess. He probably “lasted” at OAG because there is nowhere else for him to work. Castor probably wanted him gone too!!

  38. Kane is most certainly impossible to work for. But behaving like this is unprofessional. Period.

    What exactly is he looking to achieve? Is he looking to curry favor with some future employer? Who would hire him knowing that he could throw a hissy fit and rip you in the Press? He seems stupid.

  39. Where were all your complaints when he was on spin duty for Kane? No negative words for him then. Maybe, just maybe Kane is the issue!

  40. The article says that Ardo had a “$10,000 a month contract”.

    I’m a better spokesperson/advocate for Kane, and I’m underpaid $10,000/month.

    I should apply for the job. 🙂

  41. Maybe he can join Seth Williams and say “No Comment” a bunch of times when people ask about Bob Levant, Kathy Martin, and the Harrisburg bartender that heads up his new PAC (with Corbett Republican Mike Barley).
