Reader Poll: Who Do You Believe Will Be the GOP’s Attorney General Nominee?

081025_gop_logoThe Kathleen Kane drama and it’s influence on the Democratic side has obscured the other half of this year’s Attorney General race.

Additionally, the Republican field was in a bit of flux as State Rep. Todd Stephens emerged as a major contender only to drop out in favor of State Sen. John Rafferty.

In the aftermath, the contentious battle between Josh Shapiro, Stephen Zappala and John Morganelli received most of the attention.

Recently, however, prosecutor Joe Peters has thrown his hat into the ring and will challenge Rafferty for the nomination.

With the lineup finally set, this seems like the most appropriate time to ask our readers the question.

  1. Jessica – Wikipedia has it wrong. Seth Williams resides with his Mommy in Philadelphia. His daughters live in the suburbs with Williams’ ex-wife (who caught him cheating on her).

    Wikipedia is remiss for not including details of the FBI’s criminal investigation into Williams. That’s a pretty big detail. it’s not every day you have the elected District Attorney getting ready to wear an orange jump-suit.

  2. Yes, Senator. “R. Seth Williams” is really Rufus Seth Williams.

    But the R could very well stand for Repervican nowadays. After all – Seth has career Republicans in charge of his organization. His PAC is run by Harrisburg Republicans (the ones he helped by publicly attacking the Democrat Kane).

    In response to Brennan’s recent article pointing out how he has no money, no support, and no friends, Williams talks about how his “number one commitment is to making the city of Philadelphia a safer, better place to live, work and raise our families.”

    But – Williams’ family is not being raised in the City. His children are being raised in the suburbs – by Williams’ ex-wife (who caught Williams cheating on her).

  3. Jessica…his birth name is Rufus? Any documentation of that? I didn’t know that. I hope it’s true, though. I’ll have to start referring to him by his real name from now on.

  4. No way we raise/give money to Seth Williams. I don’t care how many Corbett Pervs he hires. I don’t care how much he spends at the Union League. I don’t care how many bow-ties he wears. He will NEVER get a dime from Republicans … unless he switches parties, signs the oath, and vows never to limit a wacko’s ability to quickly purchase an assault weapon!!

  5. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Rufus (his birth name) Williams …

    “…for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.”
