Marti Oakley Features Montco Woman — Elaine Mickman of Lower Merion has appeared twice over the last few months on Marti Oakley’s Minnesota-based radio show.
Marti is a world-wide advocate for the elderly who have been taken advantage of by “guardians, and fights injustices by probate systems and courts in general.
She airs on the TS Radio Network and her shows are archived on the web.
Montgomery County, Pa is one of her favorite topics with a whole category labeled “Ottholes”in honor ofStanley Ott, who was Montco’s Administrative Judge of the Orphans’ Court Division until his retirement last year .
Elaine says Montco falsely credited her ex-husband for $550,000 he never paid relating to child support regarding their divorce, and never required proof of income from him at child support hearings. She says the county is trying to make her autistic son — now an adult at 18 years of age — pay it back.
It’s easy to dismiss the grievances of a woman — or man for that matter — regarding a divorce. We don’t though because we find it far easier to believe corruption and greed are rampant in Philadelphia suburban government. See here and here.
Anyway, here are link’s to Elaine’s appearances on Marti’s show:
Elizabeth Preate Havey must resign as chair of the Montgomery County Republican Committee.
With the result of the Nov. 5 Pennsylvania general election, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, has remained with its Democratic Row Officers winning this election, consistent with the former Chair.
Monies were funneled to Montgomery County Republican insiders in a joint effort to defeat the current / newly elected Republican County Commissioner, from Philadelphia Democrat politicians. The recipient being the Horsham Republican Party. The Chair supports / accepts the former Planned Parenthood board member’s donation as well. We do not want to fall under the guideline(s) and become another Philadelphia county.
As true grassroots, the registered voters of Montgomery County support the pre-born. Said Chair is not acting in true fashion with our values.
The Chair held no regard to the fraudulent activity / activities that occurred in our May primary election. Voters were being purposely deceived into believing there was an “endorsement” when there actually was not. We find this theft by perception.
A grassroots candidate is flourished from seed. Said candidate is deemed a Free Thinker, not to be controlled by the Chair / Committee. To uphold true morality, integrity, and honesty, as our Founding Fathers were so very instrumental in doing. The majority of voters feel the Chair did not and does not stand up to these Conservative grassroot attributes and is no friend to them.
With this being said, I am requesting the Chair to step down immediately after the new year. A special election will appoint the new one.

Chris Saullo Makes Environment Campaign Issue — Chris P. Saullo is seeking a supervisor seat, Nov. 5, in Lower Gwynedd in Montgomery County.
His main issue might be the Wissahickon Creek watershed. It is good to see It is good to see a Republican making the environment a front and center issue. He issued the below statement.
For what it is worth, all new development but especially residential development from which people must flee during floods should be prohibited on creek and river banks. It’s one time when eminent domain makes eminent sense.
I am deeply concerned with the known problems within the Wissahickon Creek watershed. In 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 3 (EPA) has established a total maximum daily load (TMDL) for total phosphorus (TP) within the Wissahickon Creek Watershed. This issue affects 13 municipalities within the 64 square miles of the Wissahickon watershed, with Lower Gywnedd Township being one of them.
We should consider a pause to rethink our focus in regard to development in our township in order to stop and hopefully eventually reverse this problem. Off the top of my head, this is greater than just stormwater management. And what raises the stakes on this issue is the Wissahickon Creek is used as the main source of water for over 200,000 households, and in the summer the only flow in the Wissahickon Creek is from the Ambler Wastewater Treatment Plant.
As I said above, I am deeply concerned with this issue and I do know Lower Gwynedd Township has joined with the other municipalities to begin developing a plan towards repairing this issue. We, as a community, are at the beginning of even understanding this problem and all that factors into it. Take note Bill, this is a local issue and will be solved locally. This is one example of where candidates in the upcoming municipal election should be focused, not on national issues.
And as a candidate for township supervisor, I’ll simply ask my neighbors, on what issues are the other candidates focused?
The Democratic Party campaign event for which they are scheduled to appear is 1-4:30 p.m. at the Kennett Democrats, 115 Marshall St., Kennett Square, Pa. 19348. Wolf and Shapiro cannot be there the whole time as they are also scheduled for a Montgomery County Democrat Party event noon to 4 p.m., UFCW Local 1776, 3031 Walton Rd, Plymouth Meeting, Pa. 19462.
Thank you Pauline for the update.
Hey hipster Millennials being crushed by student loans, what has Wolf done to curtail the ridiculous educational salaries and pensions causing your loans to be so burdensome?
Crowd Protests Scanlon Over Impeachment Push — About 35 protesters greeted Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon at yesterday’s (Oct. 20) town hall at Strath Haven High School in Nether Providence Township our sources tell us.
Susan Jane, of Montgomery County, was one of the organizers of the protest against the Democrat Scanlon. She had been a much more active-than-average Republican committeewoman in Lower Gwynedd until she was forced from her post last December. It would have been nice if the GOP leadership kept her in the fold considering the division in the party and the opportunity they are blowing to take back control of the county this Nov. 5.
Crowd Protests Divisive Scanlon Over Impeachment Push
Divisive DemocratMadeleine Dean — Divisive Madeleine Dean, the Democrat who represents Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District, which is most of Montgomery County, spent her 15 minutes at Monday’s (Oct. 7) purportedly bi-partisan Montgomery County Legislative Summit calling for President Trump’s impeachment.
Why does she think the President needs to be impeached. Because he’s “obstructive” and “lawless”, she says. Hey, who cares what the words actually mean. They sound good.
The impeachment push is based on a July 25 phone conversation President Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in which President Trump asked newly-elected President Zelenskyy for help in getting to the bottom of illegal interference –foreign and otherwise — in the 2016 election.
Remember when interference in the 2016 election was the issue of the day for divisive Dems? Sure you do. That was just a few short months ago.
President Trump also asked President Zelenskyy to look into apparent crimes committed in the Ukraine by high-ranking American officials.
Why don’t Dems like Madeleine want these crimes investigated? What are they afraid of? They sure seem to be panicking.
Pauline Manhandled From Montco Commissioners — Pauline Braccio, whose health issues include bulging spinal disks, arrhythmia, asthma and lymphedema, was manhandled and removed by a county deputy sheriff from today’s (Oct. 3) Montgomery County Commissioners meeting after she questioned the minutes from the Aug. 8 meeting.
She was placed in handcuffs and thrown into a cell before her statement was taken by two county detectives after which she was released. Ms. Braccio said the situation brought on an asthma attack and she had to use a rescue inhaler. She says that due to her diabetes, the bruises on her arms and hands will take weeks to heal. She also has burst blood vessels on her forearm.
Ms. Braccio said that she will be notified in about a week if charges will be filed.
Ms. Braccio has spoken out at commissioner meetings for nearly a year saying Commissioner Ken Lawrence raped her after his friend drugged her at a community college event in 1990.
Lawrence response to the accusations has been unsatisfactory, Ms. Braccio says.
At today’s meeting, Ms. Braccio said she rose to address the August minutes which stated Lawrence responded directly to her claims. Ms. Braccio said, however, he never spoke directly to her but rather said during commissioner comments “Let the minutes reflect that I responded to Ms. Braccio’s comments that her allegations are false.”
The minutes say that “Vice Chair Lawrence commented that he responded to Ms. Pauline Braccio’s allegations as false.”
Ms. Braccio says he never directly addressed her. She says he wants him to look her in the eye and deny it. She says that when he made his statement he was looking at Chairwoman Valerie Arkoosh.
After she made her comment about the minutes, Ms. Braccio explained that her comments were germane to the county government because sexual allegations have been widely discussed and investigated concerning State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-17), Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
At that point, County Solicitor Josh Stein told her she had crossed the line and to desist, at which she said she did.
Chairwoman Arkoosh immediately called a recess and the commissioners walked out leaving Ms. Braccio at the podium.
She said Stein approached her and told her she couldn’t keep bringing up the rape. She agreed not to and he said she could continue with other comments which she said related to public integrity, the family justice advisory board and the judiciary. Stein was then called away.
She said he returned with security and said she had to leave. She asked why he changed his mind, and a hulking deputy sheriff grabbed her twisting her back and manhandled her from the room. He roughly placed her in handcuffs bruising her arms and marched her to the sheriff’s department. They tried restraining her legs but couldn’t get the shackles around them due to her lymphedema.
Obviously she was a danger and a threat.
That was sarcasm.
Maybe they could have asked to leave as they had in the past. She had complied every time.
She was placed in a cell with two women, one of whom she says had been incarcerated since Aug. 7 for unpaid parking tickets. The detectives were called. They interviewed her and she was freed. Her ordeal lasted three hours.
LEO Collected Child Rape Images In Montco — Matthew Laver, 38, of Souderton, Pa. has pleaded guilty to multiple counts of distribution, receipt, and possession of child pornography, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania announced Sept. 9.
Laver was indicted in March. He collected and distributed over the internet almost 4,000 images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children during the last 10 years according to First Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams.
This included depictions of infants being sexually assaulted and raped.
These occurred while Laver was a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Officer.
The case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security and the Abington Police Department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Eileen Zelek and Michelle Rotella.
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.
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
