Reader Poll: Should Wolf Remove Marcus Brown?

wolf-sad1Governor Tom Wolf has been in office five months but he’s already found himself in two controversies over executive appointments.

The first concerned the firing of Erik Arneson, an episode that is still ongoing in the courts.

This new issue, though, revolves around Wolf’s nominee for Police Commissioner, Marcus Brown.

Brown’s nomination became embroiled in a strange scandal and never really recovered.

Eventually, the Governor withdrew the nomination but the State Senate voted Brown down anyway. Yet Wolf decided to keep Brown as Acting Commissioner.

Yesterday, Gov. Wolf doubled down by proclaiming that Brown will remain as Acting Commissioner until a successor is chosen.

Of course, the State Senate isn’t exactly happy that a nominee they rejected is leading Pennsylvania’s police force until further notice.

So we decided to ask our readers, should Governor Wolf remove Marcus Brown from office?

  1. I’ve been watching this poll and something strange happened after it hit page 3. I’m assuming a certain someone started voting after work and clearing his cache.

    Look, the only people who think Brown should stay are liberals who are making a political calculation and think you fight everything before admitting defeat (but not accepting it). But, keeping him there is arrogant and wrong. Reasonable people get this.

    Keeping Brown is a stinker. Can I get an Amen StevenTodd?

  2. Whether the chief executive thinks he’s above checks and balances is not moot.

  3. A little late, don’t you think? Wolf is going to nominate someone else for State Police Commissioner. This is moot.
