John Krupa is a FAKE Tea Party Candidate supported by the left. Don't vote for him. Spread the word.
Last week, a man named John Krupa filed nomination papers with the PA Department of State to run as a "Tea Party" candidate for Governor! As you know, I have attended many Tea Party events all across PA and the country and I am in contact with many of the Pennsylvania grassroots organizations. No one has heard of the guy. I was completely stunned to learn of this information. When I heard he had filed as an alleged member of the Tea Party, I decided to take a closer look at his nomination papers. And what I found was the most shocking and it was deeply troubling. Mr. Krupa's nomination papers were littered with circulators who DO NOT share our value and principles! Krupa's petitions had more than 20 individuals who are closely aligned with anti-free market Unions! Additionally, there are 20 more individuals that are closely aligned with the Dan Onorato for Governor Campaign and other major Democratic establishment insiders!
Despite only having to add a candidate for the US Senate on these papers, no such candidate was added! Nor was a candidate added for Lieutenant Governor, which is in violation of the Commonwealth of PA Constitution! It has become very clear that this is nothing more than an effort planned and executed by Dan Onorato's campaign to get a 3rd Party candidate on the ballot and confuse the voters in an attempt to hijack the Tea Party name and save his campaign. This is a dishonest tactic that we will not allow to stand. We cannot let all of the efforts and hard twork that we have done be stolen by Dan Onorato's campaign in a disgusting political tactic! I smell cheese and the Pittsburgh Tribune called him a"OnoRATo" for attempting this effort! This has major implications for the Tea Party moving forward---if this Onorato (sponsored) Tea Party candidate, once on the ballot for the General Election 2010 receives 2% of the vote this year, he and his five-person self-identified Committee, who are also not Tea Party organizers, will be able to nominate "Tea Party" candidates in Pennsylvania for the next four years! Understanding these consequences, I knew action needed to be taken for our Tea Party movement! We have worked too hard to have Dan Onorato or anyone else steal our movement. Monday August 9 I along with three other activists filed an objection to John Krupa"s nomination papers. Wednesday, we were made aware that our petition challenge would begin in court on August 17th, 2010. However, before we get to court, both sides of the challenge and now I am required to go through each signature being challenged one-by-one. This exhaustive effort will begin on Friday and continue through the weekend. I am extremely confident that our challenges will be successful and we will prevent the hijacking of the Tea Party name by Dan Onorato or anyone!
Hey Sarver, how about letting those hordes of Suns fans sneak in free? And give em some eats and drinks too. Because you don't want to be a racist, do you?
Robert Sarver, current majority owner of the Phoenix Suns, has bad-mouthed Arizona’s new immigration law.
Arizona’s Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following statement in response to Sarver’s criticism:
“What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected. Furthermore, what if Suns’ ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?”
