PA-Sen: McGinty Caught Making False Claim

McGinty-sadTurns out one of the primary talking points for Senate Democratic nominee Katie McGinty isn’t true.

As reported by Christopher Massie and Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed, McGinty has been lying about being the first in her family to go to college.

“As the ninth of 10 kids and the first in my family to go to college, I’ve been privileged to live the American dream,” McGinty stated in an AP interview and many other times.

The issue is that her older brother John McGinty attended the Community College of Philadelphia from 1968 to 1970. He then transferred to, and graduated, from LaSalle University in 1973. He also apparently received his master’s in education from Temple University in 1978.

Katie McGinty entered St. Joseph’s University in 1981.

“As Katie has said, she was the first in her family to attend and graduate from a four-year college,” McGinty Campaign Spokesman Josh Levitt explained. “Her brother completed a two-year program then applied the credits to receive his bachelors.”

McGinty has started to qualify that she was the first to attend a “four-year college” but the earliest example of her doing so was last week, when she may have already realized that journalists and/or Republican opposition researchers had uncovered the information about John’s college records.

UPDATE: The McGinty campaign pointed out other times in the past where she has described being the first to attend a “four-year college”.

UPDATE 2: The McGinty campaign also sent the following statement from John McGinty:

“The way that Katie and our family have always talked about our experience is she was the first of the 10 McGinty kids to attend and graduate from a four-year college, straight out of high school. We were all really proud of that, just as we were proud that I earned my degree by completing a two-year program and then enrolling in La Salle. And we’re prouder still that Katie wants to actually do something about college costs and debt for families like ours – unlike our current senator, who voted to cut Pell grants and let interest on student debt double.”

  1. HaHaHu aka Brett COTT Your last post was just so funny you should have been a comedian instead of a thief. I’m beginning to think who could have hired you and allowed you to steal the money you did. Did you pay taxes on that?

    Ok here is my joke for the night

    What is the difference between William Stauffer and Brett Cott

    A. A criminal record, well going to jail and then there’s being someone’s punk ass bitch while I was in there. Also, being the pin cushion for the entire block. Wait there’s more, being prosecuted by Frank Fina, pissing my pants in court. Having my family disown me. Staying in New York because of the shame of being a thief.
    Oh yeah, wearing women’s clothes and wigs. I’m sure there’s more but I gotta go.

  2. This one too:

    Q – What did Robert Stauffer the Retard get on his IQ test?

    A – Drool.

    Time for SpongeBob’s return? Or will he make up a new name?? Because – OWNED.

  3. Brett Cott Aka HaHaHu aka Bungy

    Your last post pretty much says it all. You have a nice weekend Brett and also all your other personalities.

  4. Funny? Did someone say funny? Bungy had me cracking up with this one:

    Q – Why did the chicken cross the road?
    A- To get to the Retard’s house.

    Knock – Knock

    William Stauffer: Who’s there?
    A – The chicken.


  5. HaHaHu aka Brett COTT aka Bungy Et Al

    Was stealing that money as easy as the last comment you made?
    Maybe I gave Fina too much credit for convicting you and putting
    In jail. Seems like he had an easy case with. You really pissed your
    Pants in the courtroom. You’re one funny guy.

  6. William … I mean Robert … No - William … … Robert … William ……… Robert …. William Stauffer says:

    Uhduhduhduh … I’m a retard …. duhduh … I live in Retard-ville. duhduh

  7. Brett Cott. Nice reply, if anyone knows about sucking dicks it’s probably you since I hear you were the nightly entertainment on your block. I hear your family disowned you because you were the first thief to get caught and the humiliation of it all was too much for them. Nice boy you turned out to be. I’m not gonna make fun of your mom sucking or that she caught you trying on her clothes before you went to jail to see what colors looked best. By the way someone who knew you there said lime green to match the troll wig you wore although the wig kept falling off your bald head.

    So the next question is did you pay any taxes on the money you stole. I doubt it but who knows maybe someone will investigate. Wouldn’t it be funny if Fina was appointed as a special Federal Prosecutor and put you in jail again. So Brett keep posting those links that’s a real intelligent response. Hey, if you’re bored go pick on some mentally challenged kids in New York.
    Better not because they would kick your prison loving bitch ass. Have a good weekend.

  8. Seriously, Brett Cott aka HaHaHu are you ready to call a truce in this blog battle. Next choice is up to you.

  9. Seriously – is Robert any better than William? Is he less fat? Less pock-marked? Less pathetic in any way? Oh yeah … Robert is you …. LOL

  10. How about “Robert?”
    Does Robert live in the basement of his obese mothers house
    Does Robert sell $10 BJs at the Turnpike rest-stop
    Does Robert have a mentally challenged (i.e. retard) child
    Does Robert hide under mommys dress and call Sy to see if he wants a BJ

  11. Brett Cott, what does it matter just think of all the names you use. Amazing you didn’t bother to answer my question if you paid taxes on the money you stole, what about the wig, did you like being blonde or brunette. Come on Brett is this the best you got calling me a troll. Oh maybe it was the troll wig you liked. Bet your family is really proud of you.

  12. BRETT COTT aka HaHaHu

    Well if you must know it was well worth wIaiting in line at your house after you went to jail. Only wish the sentence was longer.

    Why don’t you publish what’s in those links. I can if you want.

    This question has really bothered me but since you have a bald head did that make it easier when you were in jail and has to wear all those silly wigs your cell mates made you. I heard you looked best in the green troll one and also the clown one

    You know Brett you didn’t have to move to New York to escape the shame you bought on your family when you were sentenced to prison when Fina prosecuted you. We’re your friends we understood that you had an uncontrollable urge to steal from poor people.

    Oh yeah Brett no answer on wether you paid taxes on the money you stole?

    Lastly, please don’t publish some links and run around and say owned. The last time you were owned is when you were in jail.

  13. Did your wife let you back in the trailer yet? She gives good head … especially when she takes her teeth out.

  14. One more thing;

    When did you get a medical degree? You’re an unemployed list seller.
    The fact that you searched for the information on the Internet is impressive
    But maybe you should check the DSM 4 to see how it is Classified and what
    relationship it has with other disorders. Ask your mom she’ll help.

    HaHaHu aka Bungy aka BRETT COTT. Hey instead of posting the links why
    Don’t you post the information.

    Brett did you pay taxes on the money you stole ………………

  15. HaHaHu aka BRETT COTT. No Brett I don’t do things like your buddy Diablo.

    But then I’ve never been sent to prison like you by Fina either. OWNED

    I’d love to continue but have some work to do. Were you on work release Brett?

    I guess not because all your prior work experience was stealing.

  16. LOL. How about “Robert?”

    Does Robert live in the basement of his obese mothers house
    Does Robert sell $10 BJs at the Turnpike rest-stop
    Does Robert have a mentally challenged (i.e. retard) child
    Does Robert hide under mommys dress and call Sy to see if he wants a BJ

  17. Diablo, maybe I’m a bad speller and you can make fun of me for that BUT

    I don’t live in the basement of my mothers house

    I don’t sell lists cause nobody wants them

    I don’t ridicule mentall challenged children.

    I don’t hide under mommys dress and call Sy everytime I want a post

    Oh, I better stop cuz mom has your Cheerios ready.

  18. REALLY this is news… This is the best Gota you can come with on Katie…
    Move on SOOOOOO stupid.

  19. DumberThanBagOfTrumpHats-


    Is that what happens when YOU BBQ and drop the burgers in the coals?

    You are so stupid.

    Asperger’s is an autism spectrum disorder and is not associated with low intelligence, like in mental retardation, but rather is more correlated with high intelligence.

    So, we know:
    1) you don’t have Asperger’s
    2) you probably eat Ashburgers
    3) you probably prefer ass-burgers
