PA-Sen: Toomey Hits McGinty over College Claim in New Web Ad (VIDEO)

Senator Pat Toomey is piling on.

The Republican is hammering his Democratic opponent over the recent revelation that her claim to be the first in her family to graduate from college was false.

The thirty-second web spot features video and audio of McGinty talking about being the first of her parents’ kids to go to college despite the fact that her brother received both a bachelors and masters degree before McGinty started her higher education.

“If Katie McGinty won’t tell the truth about herself, how can we trust her about anything?,” the video asks in text at the conclusion.

The Toomey campaign also included the hashtag #ShadyKatie which has apparently unseated #PhillyMcGinty as the GOP’s go-to Twitter shorthand.

    Cross-dressing as “Marie” now, RETARD-troll?

  2. Marie says:

    Where’s the real bungy?

  3. bungy says:

    Pat – the retard troll is now posting as kraig. Can’t imagine a more pathetic loser. He has a retard kid too. At least that’s what he has said.

  4. kraig says:

    What stupid troll doesn’t know how long a Senator’s term is? You wrote it and Sy won’t delete it because it came from the same person. Now you try and disown your own idiocy. Too funny!! #YouGotOwnedPal

  5. Pat Unger says:

    Now you use “kraig”‘s screen-name and mine?!? LOL. Pathetic.

  6. kraig says:

    Senate terms are 6 years, Pat. You must be a Democrat. #PublicSchoolsSuck

  7. Pat Unger says:

    Next 4 years.

    Senator McGinty. Thanks Trump!!

  8. Bob from Juniata says:

    Past 6 years. Thanks Sestak…

  9. Unsanctioned D says:

    6 more years. Thanks McGinty.

  10. Guy says:

    Shady Katie is a great hash-tag. Also, it sounds a lot like ‘Crooked Hillary’ or ‘Lying Ted’. Is this Toomey taking a page out of Trump’s play book?

  11. Unsanctioned R says:

    How many McGinty kids does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Just one older sibling to screw it in and tell the press that Katie the Senate candidate did it.

  12. Marie says:

    Hillary and Katie deserve each other. Their lies back to back in an ad will be excruciating.

  13. Peter says:

    The was first WOMAN to go to College. And she will be first woman to beat Toomey (since his HS arm-wrestling days).

  14. David Diano says:

    McGinty is the first person on her family to beat Sestak.

    That’s good enough for me. 🙂

  15. Forget the Rs and Ds says:

    Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, 100 years later Hillary Rodham was a racist “Goldwater Girl.”

    Anyone who wants to compare her to Honest Abe should recall this:

    McGinty should learn from this seasoned politician and blame the lies on chronic sleep deprivation.

  16. David Diano says:

    Trump and Toomey are honest?

    Hillary is Abe Lincoln compared to them.

  17. Pepper says:

    Bungy, Katie and Hillary ARE liars. That’s an easily verifiable fact.

  18. the next Sara Ganim says:

    “Ms. McGinty, What would you like me to print about this all next week?”

  19. Seth Williams' New Chief of Staff and General Counsel says:

    She’s better than me. I’m just a hack.

  20. Marie says:

    This is the best woman we can find? Ugh.

  21. bungy says:

    Toomey’s tecord speaks for itself. He is a POS. Calling every female D a “liar” is so getting old. Katie and Hillary will win in landslides.

  22. Pepper says:

    It’s a really sad sad state when people try to defend this kind of behavior. McGinty is a pathological liar. The way she misrepresented Sestak’s voting record was disgraceful.

    Shame on you Katie!

  23. Jpaul says:

    RAT2016- Republicans and Independents against Toomey. Toomey should be limited to one term. Hey Pat- can you explain your support (somewhat buried in Republican Senate Bill) to cut spending at expense of our soldiers- by cutting their housing allowances. What uniform did you wear Pat? What theater of combat dos you serve on? What do you get when you mix a weasel with a jackass– Mitch McConnell and his supporter Pat Toomey! Even McGinty would be better

  24. David Diano says:


    So, your whole basis of claiming that I insulted retarded kids is based on other anonymous posters who you falsely claim are me? Well, that explains why your claims of having “retained” copies of this blog and shown them to people/legislators about me has gotten nowhere. No one is going to take action against me for something posted by someone else.

    Why do you keep typing Ashburgers?

    As for my lists, I updated my system with the May 30th statewide snaphot, containing the voter turnout data for the April primary for 55 of the 67 counties, and will make another update on Monday to get some more.

    The VAN/VoteBuilder system used by the party doesn’t even have that data yet, so I’m the only one with it.

  25. Chester Dem says:

    Well, we pissed away a shot at a Senate seat with this self serving witch who’s ego can’t help but drag this into the next news cycle.

  26. Observant says:

    Dems are stuck with her. If Toomey wasn’t so horrible and been M.I.A. In the Senate (missing 80% of votes), nominating her over Admiral Sestak would be really bad. As it stands, McGinty shortcomings will now make this competitive….wonder what the lady wiping the counter (who we saw lots of thanks to DSCC and its partners spreading the Katie false story lines) thinks of Katie now?

  27. JWinston says:

    The worst of liars can’t even admit it to themselves.

  28. Stay at home mom says:

    By the McGinty family standard I was a restaurant hostess and a teacher.

  29. Real McGinty 9th says:

    I’m really the 9th McGinty. Katie was the 8th, but she’s so small we just called her number nine inside the family.

  30. lame-assed excuses says:

    Was her father really a police office or is that how her family talked about his security job?

  31. the next Sara Ganim says:

    “Ms. McGinty, are you the first in your family to attend a four-year college?”

  32. William Stauffer says:


    Again you fail to post the truth never said your mom lived in the basement said you do. What a failure at life must you be that at your age you still live your mommy.

    There are posts that have been retained which shows you calmly mentally challenged re..ards.
    Anyone who follows this blog will state the same other than you with your various other names and your buddy the ex con. You do post under different names.

    The obsession with sexual activity with children rests with you. When frustrated and owned as you are many times on this board you accuse someone you don’t know a child molestor that’s sick and so are you

    That’s right you collect lists cause that’s the only thing you could do. Problem is nobody wants your lists especially now since you have been exposed on this blog as being a verbal bully of some children.

    Your so called data you spoke of is bogus cause you create false data to support your argument..

    Nobody ever accused you of collecting unemployment you have to first be employed to do that. There is welfare and food stamps.

    As far as posting under your real name you don’t again there are times you post under phony names to support your sometimes bizarre posts.

    People who know have remarked what a jerk o.f you are their words not mine.

    You act like a know it all case in point classification of children suffering from Ashburgers. You were wrong again so says the DSM 4.

    You could only dream of Trump and Christie in politics because the farthest you’ve made it in politics is envelope licker.

    The good news here is I’m done I’ve exposed you and the ex-con. I’ve proven my points and you’re OWNED.. Give mommy a kiss for me all you gave to do is roll over on the bed.

    Best wishes Didildo.

  33. David Diano says:


    You scored a perfect zero percent.

    My mom doesn’t live in a house nor has a basement.
    So, all those people who pay me for lists don’t really want them? Yeah, that makes sense.
    The Voter data is a side business representing a small percentage of my income.
    I’ve never collected a nickel of unemployment money my entire life.
    You don’t know what “experts” think about anything. SpongeBob just has a creepy child-predator vibe about him.
    My track record of being right is pretty solid, and I back up my statements with links/data/quotes (unlike you).

    When someone here smarter than me posts, maybe I’ll start obsessing, but most likely they’ll be backing up what I’ve been saying.

    Haven’t riduled a single retarded kid. Just the idiotic adults here.

    I’m braver than you. I post under my real name.

    You are more owned than Trump owns Christie.

  34. David Diano says:

    What is the difference between William Stauffer and Brett Cott?

    There actually is a person named Brett Cott.

  35. Unsanctioned R says:

    Wake me when Katie actually tells the truth about being the second or third or whatever to go to a four-year college. Maybe by Monday. Have a nice weekend everyone.

  36. William Stauffer says:

    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? As far as being owned weren’t you owned by your cell mate.

    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.

  37. HaHaHa says:

    No, troll-boy. She is going to win. Handily.

    Has Toomey DONE HIS JOB yet? No? Wake me when he does.

  38. PA Parent says:

    Has #ShadyKatie conceded yet?

  39. McLoser says:

    Who knew Montco Dems were so gullible and stupid?

  40. The_New_Liberal_Lion says:

    This is what Gloomey is waisting his money on.

  41. Mary says:

    @Montco PA Dem:

    Actually, she said she was the first one in her family to go to college.

    That was proven false.

    Then she said she was the only one to go to a “four-year” college.

    That was also proven false, as her brother graduated from a four-year college in Philadelphia and received his Masters’ before she enrolled in school.

    So, pretty much, she lied and got caught.

  42. Montco PA Dem says:

    OK, let me see if I have this right:
    – McGinty said she was the first in her family to go to a four-year college, which is true.
    – She forgot to say “four-year” a few times
    – Everything else she said is absolutely beyond question true.
    – The only problem Toomey has is that Katie’s brother also went to college.

    Why on Earth am I supposed to care about this? The fact remains that Katie — and her family, obviously — are high-achieiving individuals from blue-collar roots. I think we all either have similar stories or aspire to have them some day.

    Soon-to-be Senator McGinty is a great role model.

    Toomey is a TEA-guzzling garden gnome.
