Bowzer from Sha Na Na to Campaign for Critz

Two words: game change.

Jon “Bowzer” Bauman, of the Doo Wop group Sha Na Na and variety series of the same name, will be campaigning for Rep. Mark Critz in the 12th Congressional district this week, the Critz campaign announced.  Critz is battling fellow incumbent Jason Altmire in the Democratic primary next week after their districts were drawn together following redistricting last year.

Bauman will be appearing at senior centers, bingos, and other events in the district from Wednesday until Saturday, appearing both with and on behalf of Critz.  Bauman also campaigned for Critz during the 2010 special election.

This news comes in the days after Altmire announced the endorsement of former Rep. and 2010 Senate candidate Joe Sestak, and Critz announced the endorsement of Pres. Bill Clinton.  The candidates also split the major Pittsburgh newspapers: the Post-Gazette for Altmire and the Tribune-Review for Critz.

Here is a tentative schedule of Bowzer events.

  1. Where did Critz get $50K from? HE TOOK OUT A SECOND MORTGAGE ON HIS HOUSE!!!!! I know this to be a FACT! He didn’t get it from GOP OPERATIVES like Altmire did! He is not some slick, rich pretty boy lobbyist. He is the REAL DEAL…so stop throwing muck, and realize the best Representative is one who makes it his/her life’s work to REPRESENT…not just wear the Pin as a Status Symbol. Critz is on Armed Forces, Small Business, and is the GO-TO guy in Congress for Marcellus Shale and Clean Coal. No body in Congress is as clean and works harder than Mark Critz. Just ask Steny Hoyer (D), Bob Brady (D), and Tim Murphy (R).

  2. Dear DOMMY: Lobbyist Altmire’s campaign is pathetic. AFTER LOBBYIST SELLS OUT HIMSELF ON K STREET TO SPECIAL INTERESTS LIKE BIG HEALTHCARE, YOU CAN TAKE ALL THE CHEAP SHOTS AT CRITZ YOU LIKE. DOMMY: HAVE YOU READ THE REPORT IN OPENSECRETS ABOUT LOBBYIST ALTMIRE’S DONORS. WHEN IS LOBBYIST ALTMIRE GOING TO RETURN THE TOM SMITH CHECK? STOP THE SWITCH AND BAIT STUFF PLEASE. DOMMY, YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!!

  3. Has anybody in the media bothered to ask Critz where he got the $50K he’s lent to his campaign? Abscam Murtha was being investigated for numerous ethics violations and, according to Critz, he and Murtha were attached at the hip. C’mon media, do your damn jobs!
