Pat Poprik Incompetence In Bucks County — Bucks County Republican Party Chairwoman Pat Poprik, yesterday, Jan. 21, released the dumbest bit of politicking of 2020.
Granted its early but it sets a high bar.
Ms. Poprik and her clueless contingent declared that businessman Andrew Meehan, who is challenging incumbent Brian Fitzpatrick in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District, will be excluded from candidate screening.
“They voted not to allow him to be voted on,” said Robert Ciervo.
The county GOP Executive Committee claimed Meehan did not share their values because of some alleged social media sin. They said it without the dimmest awareness that cancel culture is clearly not the value of the overwhelming majority of Republican voters even in the Philadelphia suburbs.
If what he did was so bad, why not confront him during the screening? Hmmm? Can you say fear? Expediency?
How about stupidity?
You could have safely given the incumbent the nod without dissing Meehan or his many, many supporters who Fitzpatrick will need if he should win the primary, April 28.
But you chose the halo polishing route thinking it will get you patted on the head by the people who use you and hate us.
Bucks County needs a new boss.
Here is the release:
Update 1: Andy Meehan has responded to the allegations of social media wrongdoing https://meehan2020.com/meehan-response-to-fitzpatrick-hit-job-dump/
Update 2: A little birdie told us the vote to exclude Meehan’s screening was 49-28 which is remarkable as our birdie says unanimous votes are the norm. Further the discussion to exclude Meehan took an hour and 15 minutes which was a unnecessary waste of time. Letting Meehan speak would have taken five minutes.
