Gregg Richman Whisper Campaign Alleged
By Pauline Braccio
Here we go again! Why does the Montgomery County Republican Committee keep trying to commit suicide?
Gregg Richman is running for judge of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas. There are three spots to be filled and six candidates running. You would think the Republican party would want to get as many of its candidates elected. That would make sense, right? Nope.
The MCRC is more interested in keeping the current apparatus in place. The bipartisan corruption is so successful that the Republicans don’t want to stop it they want a bigger piece of the pie.
A whisper campaign has commenced to run Gregg Richman into the ground. In fact, the MCRC wants him off the ballot. Sound familiar? Didn’t we just go through this in the primary race for commissioner?
I received an article from France Krazalkovich that was posted by MoreThanTheCurve.com. Most of you should remember France. He came in dead last in the run for commissioner, far behind any of the other candidates. Seems as though France now lives vicariously through Matt Hovey.
France is the mouthpiece for judge candidate, Matt Hovey. Hovey does not go out on the campaign trail. He does not meet the voters. He stays in the Upper Pottsgrove/Limerick area and hides. He has not represented individuals in court, only municipalites – one of them Upper Pottsgrove, where France is Township Supervisor. I have tried to contact Hovey. He does not return phone calls. I told France that I want to have a conversation with his boy, Hovey. France cannot or will not encourage Hovey to speak with me. Therefore, I cannot make my own determination whether or not to vote for him. So, of course, I will not.
Here are some excerpts from my conversation with France on Facebook Messenger:
Me: Why did you send this to me? A coward sent some made up stuff to MoreThanTheCurve.com and you spread it around?
France: Pauline this is three years of posts. It is best to be informed.
Me: It is not three years worth of posts. They are posts from three years ago. At least get that right. And Gregg’s FB page was hacked. Why are you not a critical thinker? Gregg is Jewish. He would not be saying things about the Jews. And as I said, Matt Hovey, is a coward. If he were to be elected, he would be corrupted in the first week, if he is not already. And the fact that he is afraid to have a conversation with me shows me that I am correct.
France: With all due respect, look at the pdf of the screenshots. They range from 2015 all the way to 2018
Me: The article states: The screenshots aren’t dated, but based on some of the content they appear to be about three years old. Where is the pdf of the screenshots and why does the article say they are not dated? (There are three screenshots of posts that were put on Gregg’s page by a hacker. The rest of the posts are Gregg’s.)
France: I haven’t a clue why the article states what it does (France sent me the PDF)
Me: I re-read the posts. The article is correct that the posts that are screenshots are not dated. The dated ones were posts where Gregg was commenting on articles that were posted. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. I do not trust screenshots. and the people who sent this crap in to MoreThanTheCurve should be exposed.
Me: What I saw was the majority from 2015 and one from Jan 2016. The 2 from Oct 2018 and Nov 2018, I actually agree with. So that is actually more than 3 years ago. And I do not believe he wrote them.
France: Each and every comment/view expressed in those posts do not reflect my values or those of the Republican Party that I am proud to be a member of. What is ridiculous is to believe that someone would keep three old posts on their Facebook if they were “hacked”
Me: You know damn well, the MCRC does not want Gregg in the race. What values does the MCRC have? Not much, if you ask me. They would rather have a rapist and a woman who protects the rapist on the board.
Readers, Gregg’s FB account was hacked in 2015. Gregg did not keep the posts. The person who took the screenshots kept them. It took months for Gregg to get the situation sorted out. Then, the hackers attempted again, but were thwarted.
MoreThanTheCurve said they interviewed someone from the MCRC and this is what MCRC said.
From MCRC: MCRC emphatically denounces the comments made by Greg Richman as they do not represent the values of The Republican Party of Montgomery County, our members or our candidates. While we were unaware of these social media posts, MCRC takes these seriously and we urge Mr. Richman to denounce these views or withdraw from the race for Judge.
Julia from the MCRC gave this bogus info to France. Where else would France get the PDF of saved posts? Unless France himself has direct contact with the hacker.
Last evening, Anthony Spangler told Gregg that Gregg’s name would be removed from the ballot.
Here are Gregg’s own words from Facebook page, dated Aug. 24, 2019:
It has come to my attention that a whisper campaign to distort my platform and distort my message is floating around out there so it’s time to set the record straight. I stand for the Bill of Rights, Due Process Rights and I stand for voter integrity as well.
I want to protect making sure the enfranchisement of the vote. Furthermore, my platform includes juvenile justice reform where a child who may have made a mistake is given a second chance in a misdemeanor situation. I am for speeding up the civil division with discovery end dates so that when a lawyer files a complaint in Montgomery County they won’t have to wait around for 5-10 years to get a trial date. It will be one year from the date of filing.
This helps to move cases along and provides to that old adage — justice delayed is justice denied. That will be our credo once I am elected. Justice will prevail in a speedy and fair trial.
Further I am against censorship of any kind and the First Amendment is sacrosanct. The answer to speech you don’t like is more speech not censorship.
Also, I’d like to talk with the rules committee and have the family support guidelines be more modern since they were written in 1980 and are outdated and antiquated. I would like the guidelines to reflect our modern world with blended families and one parent working that takes care of two kids as well as a service that helps to provide picking up
And dropping off since that seems to be where the biggest problems occur and if there was a county wide service available to assist we could cut down on some domestic issues. I have spoken to law enforcement across this county and they tell me that domestic issues are the most violent.
This is one step in a process to halt domestic violence. Also for those who cannot afford child day care but work two hours away there are county services that are out there and need to be more readily available and if placed in the rules based on a Pre-Determined amount then we could have more children in day care while receiving assistance from the county and that helps families across the county in so many ways. Someone has started a whisper campaign to try to distort my message and say that I want to cap support at $400. This is wrong and not my message a clear distortion of it, so if you hear this then you will know it is false information and not coming from my campaign and is not part of my platform and never has been.
As they say in the military, if you are over the target that’s when you start tacking flack. Obviously someone thinks my message is resonating with the voters across Montgomery County I appreciate all of your support and now it’s onto the fall campaign and winning
