PA-Gov: Wolf Nominates Beemer for AG

Beemer-KaneGovernor Tom Wolf has nominated Bruce Beemer to be the interim Attorney General.

“Bruce Beemer has a depth of experience, he has the respect of the employees of the Office of the Attorney General, and I have no doubt that he will make this transition seamless and smooth,” said Governor Wolf.

“I have spoken with Republican and Democratic leaders in the Senate, and we have agreed that Bruce is the right fit for Attorney General at this time, and I am confident that he will be confirmed expeditiously,” the Governor continued. “Bruce earned a reputation across the commonwealth as a tough prosecutor, effective administrator and thoughtful legal mind, which is why I appointed him Inspector General. I have great faith in his ability and know that he will serve efficiently and effectively as Attorney General. I also want to thank Bruce Castor for his service to the office, and I wish him well moving forward.”

Beemer was First Deputy Attorney General and would’ve assumed this position if he didn’t leave to be Inspector General last month. The Governor stated that Beemer would go back to the role of Inspector General once a new Attorney General is inaugurated in January.

During Kane’s trial, Beemer was among the more important witnesses for the prosecution. Suffice to say, Kathleen Kane is probably not happy about the pick.

The Governor’s Office provided the following biography of Beemer:

Bruce Beemer currently serves as Pennsylvania’s Inspector General, and prior to that he served as first deputy in the Office of the Attorney General of Pennsylvania where he oversaw the day to day operations of the Criminal, Civil, and Public Protection Divisions, as well as being responsible for the management of almost 800 employees.

He previously served as a deputy district attorney in the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office. After joining that office as an assistant district attorney in 1996, he worked in the Crimes Persons, Narcotics and Homicide trial units where he tried over 100 jury trials and prosecuted over 75 homicide cases. He was responsible for several gang-related prosecutions within the City of Pittsburgh involving multi-jurisdictional coordination with state and federal agencies.

In 2005, Mr. Beemer was made supervisor of the District Attorney’s General Trial Units and Summary Appeals Units. He managed a group of prosecutors in the office and regularly advised city, county, and municipal police departments on legal issues relating to active investigations. He trained police officers and prosecutors on behalf of the Municipal Police Officer Training and Education Center, the Allegheny County Police Academy and the Pennsylvania District Attorney’s Association.

From 2005 to 2011 Mr. Beemer was an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Law where he taught trial advocacy to third year law students. He has served as a Board Member for the Center for Victims of Violent Crime.

In 2010, Mr. Beemer left the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office to engage in a private practice focused on plaintiffs’ environmental toxic tort cases and white collar criminal defense. In late 2011, he was appointed Chief of Staff for the Office of Attorney General of Pennsylvania under Attorney General Linda Kelly and in 2013, he was appointed Chief of Criminal Prosecutions under Attorney General Kathleen Kane before being named First Deputy.

Mr. Beemer graduated summa cum laude in 1992 from the University of Scranton and in 1995 from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. He resides just north of Pittsburgh in Bradford Woods, Pennsylvania. He and his wife Jodi have two children ages 9 and 7.

  1. Bungy aka Brett aka 10 other names he posts under. Your last post uses the term “Fagg” you may want to choose your words more carefully as that term could be considered a form of written ethnic intimidation. I would advise Sy to look into this matter lest this post gets forwarded to the LBGT community.

  2. HahaCOTT, ,Bungy,Aaron same person. Loves to posts under different names same stuff. Now I know why they put him in the looney jail. I’ll just repost my original reply. You must love being owned.

    Bungy/COTT/Williams/Unger (same person) Still looking for your answer as to who’s pussy your talking about, since I know you have read this post. It must be your pussy your talking about. Yeah I’m sure your manpussy or clown hole must have had lots of use when you were in the loony jail. Maybe you’re too busy polishing your knob I mean your fat bulbous head to reply. Why wouldn’t they let you go to a regular school?
    Didn’t know which way to turn the door knob. Maybe you found out there were books in there instead of crooks and didn’t want to go.

  3. Hahastupid …..aka Aaron Williams aka Pat Unger Shut Up who cares if COTT has a lawyer which he dosent. His last lawyer wound up getting him convicted and put in the loony jaill. To remake my point I’ll repost it again.

    Bungy/COTT/Williams/Unger (same person) Still looking for your answer since I know you have read this post. It must be your pussy your talking about and not your wife’s although you’re not defending her so that tells me something. Yeah I’m sure your manpussy or clown hole must have had lots of use when you were in the loony jail. Maybe you’re too busy polishing your knob I mean your fat bulbous head to reply.

  4. That’s OK. I am still gonna remind him that he is a pussy-ass coward-


  5. Aaron – he won’t voluntarily be a “real man” and post under his real name like we do. We may find it out another way though. Do you see how he now says what he says about “Brett Cott” (a real person) in quotes? He does that because Cotg has a lawyer!!!

    Hopefully, they post his real name here when they get it. This should be fun.

  6. Bungy/COTT (same person) Still looking for your answer since I know you have read this post. It must be your pussy your talking about and not your wife’s although you’re not defending her so that tells me something.

  7. Aaron really Brett COTT are you talking about your pussy, your wife’s pussy. Who’s pussy? Please don’t say mine for Unlike you I have not had the benefit of going to a prison ( a nutty one at that) where the male orifice is called a pussy. Did the inmates have a name for your pussy maybe troll boy or did a group of them say they wanted to jump in your clown car.?

  8. anyone notice d4 contradicted KK?

    All the emails should be released.

  9. Aaron aka HaHa same person posting under a different name. Why should anyone identify themselves to you. You are a felon, theif, a liar among other things not yet disclosed. Did you disclose it when you stole from seniors , no, Did you pay the money you stole back? You get nothing but the ridicule and scorn you so richly deserve. Remember there’s always more.


  10. Oh look — Brett Cott is talking to himself through 2 of his many juvenile screen names: HaHaHa and aaron. Soon, Pat Unger (also BRETT COTT) will join the conversation. As a convicted felon, Brett has a lot of time on his hands.

  11. Aaron – You are right. He is a cowardly pussy. But he’s just a stupid FOXtard troll. There are millions of them. They are the same people that will vote for Trump.

  12. Ohhh, BRETT COTT (aka, HaHaHa, Pat Unger, etc.) is angry now. He’s having flashbacks to getting double-teamed in the shower in STATE PRISON.

  13. There’s one piece missing – what’s your real name, pussy?

    I mean – if you are a “real man,” you will tell these people. That way they can confront you in person about all the things you type on the internet like the cowardly pussy you are.

  14. So, let me get this straight:

    HaHaHa = Brett “The Felon” Cott

    gulag Pittsburgh = Frank “The Loser” Little

    David Diano = David “The Douchebag” Diano

    Did I get that right? Hey Brett, how was prison? Did you take it up the cornhole?

  15. Everytime a distinct and unrefuted point is made here one of Convicted felon Brett Cott’s
    Or racist Superman Diano log in under their many aliases and start verbal attacks. Wonder why they can’t handle THE TRUTH

  16. “The Truth” is

    ….,,,,,,,,, the same pathetic retard troll.

    Womp …… Womp. …………………..


  17. Diano…….August 11th: Political consultant Josh Morrow testifies that Kane orchestrated the leak and that they coordinated their stories to lie and blame the episode on King. One of Morrow’s phone calls complaining about the AG was captured by a wiretap that was installed because of the McCord case. Morrow produces damaging text messages between himself and Kane.

  18. gulag Pittsburgh-

    I’m sure he knows which of his associates, supporters and appointees are on that list, and wants it to remain buried.

  19. Didn’t Beemer conspire with Graci to cover up Eakins email participation? I seem to recall senator Williams calling for Beemer to resign. Maybe he can answer those questions during his confirmation hearing. I strongly suspect they are putting him back in office to bury the Gansler report. Word is there are lots of judges, prosecutors and FBI agents on that email list.

  20. There is no conspiracy.

    There are no backroom deals.

    There are no Machiavellian plots.

    There is no behind-the-scenes maneuvering.

    Hatred of Castor is the only thing Republicans and Democrats can agree on. Bask in the glorious bi-partisanship. I sure am.

  21. Did Wolf at least check the porn email list first?
    Better yet, just post the entire trove of emails online and let everybody check all of them.

  22. That’s exactly right @ MilitantRepublican. Castor would have prosecuted criminal number one Johnny Doc. Now the Wolf administration can hide they’re dirty secrets. Wolf stays quiet tho on not removing the guy from PRPA and DRPA even though he sits on both as the Governors appointee. But he had Whitney White removed at the behest of Johnny Doc for writing a bad check 20 years ago. GIVE THE MONEY BACK SHADYKATIE. U took 600 k from the criminal. Shapiro took 180k. Lord only knows what else Wolf admin got from this guy.
    @patunger The only thing SHADYKATIE has in her safety deposit box is money from Dougherty and her Energy contracts

  23. Public Service Announcement: HaHaHa is a pathetic retard shillboy perv who jerks off to videos of Frank Fina.

  24. Or maybe Castor was getting ready to drop the hammer on Democrats’ Darling – Johnny Doc.

  25. Wow is all I can say. They moved in record time to make sure CAstor was bounced immediately. If only they could govern so effectively on issues important to the commonwealth. Castor must really be despised

  26. LOL @ Wolf/Rendell. As if Katie doesn’t have all the incriminating evidence on thumb drives in Safe Deposit boxes.

  27. This is AWESOME!! GREAT MOVE, I honestly have never seen government move so fast. Apparently Bruce Castor is despised by all, even his own party. The Republican Senate issued a press release following Wolf’s appointment of Beemer and it said essentially “don’t worry we are hurrying to remove this jerkoff from office.” They kicked him to the curb fast. Now Beemer needs to clean up the mess in Centre County that Castor and Kane created, and once and for all CRIMINALLY CHARGE STACY PARKS MILLER SO SHE CAN – LIKE KANE – FACE A JURY OF HER PEERS.

    Anyone notice how Castor’s first move after taking oath was to take over social media, posting his picture on Twitter and FB. He also issued a press release wherein he dropped the word “interim” from his title and just stuck to Attorney General. This was only an hour before Wolf removed him from office.

    This was record speed for government action: Bruce Castor is a national disgrace and bonafied loser.


  28. Wolf. lol. Wolf ain’t running nothing. This is the Rendell AKA Mary Isenhour show. Once again proving their stupidity and arrogance.

  29. Oh lawdy, the porn emails! The porn emails! Won’t somebody think of the porn emails! Lawdy I’m gettin’ the vapors!

  30. Wolf proves once again what a tone-deaf moron he is. Picks a guy right smack-dab in the middle of the porn email coverup. Never depend on a guy with a weak chin and a beard…

  31. I love this story more and more. Beemer tried to steer the office with dignity while Kane crashed and burned and was bounced for Castor. Love that he is back in the mix and can restore faith in the office for a few months.
