Benefactors of Vince Fumo Applaud Meehan’s Use of Donations

Springfield, PA – As Pat Meehan continues refusing to campaign in public so he can hide behind slick television ads and web commercials, associates of Vince Fumo around the region who have helped fund his campaign are applauding the returns on their investment.

According to campaign finance records, Pat Meehan’s campaign has received funding from a range of donors who also made substantial donations to Vince Fumo, one of the prosecutions that Meehan has touted repeatedly along the campaign trail. Meehan has received more than $114,000 from Fumo’s benefactors, records show[1].

Those donations have helped the Republican continue his strategy of avoiding difficult questions from voters by denying the public access to his campaign, an effort that has accelerated in recent days. Earlier this week, Meehan said that he was backing out of a long-scheduled debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters, and he also withdrew from a candidates’ forum in a senior center at the last minute that was slated to be televised.

“Apparently these friends of Vince Fumo see something that they like in Pat Meehan, but we’re still scratching our heads over here about what exactly that might be,” said Kevin McTigue, Bryan Lentz’s campaign manager.

During his entire campaign, Bryan Lentz has reached out to voters throughout the area by campaigning openly around the District. Lentz has been holding a series of town halls and issue forums in Delaware, Montgomery and Chester counties since mid-July that have been attended by voters of all political Parties.
A former Airborne Ranger, criminal prosecutor and Iraq War veteran, Bryan Lentz currently serves in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from Delaware County. He was awarded both the Bronze Star for Service and the War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal for his military service. He lives in Swarthmore with his wife Jennifer and their son Thomas.
