Fetterman And The Guilty Hortons — When it was revealed that John Fetterman hired two killers for his campaign staff, he snapped back saying Lee and Dennis Horton were wrongly convicted and that getting them sprung “was one of the proudest moments of my career and I’m honored to have them on this team.”
Fetterman is the Democrat nominee for Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Pat Toomey. His Republican opponent is Dr. Mehmet Oz.
As lieutenant governor, Fetterman was instrumental in commuting the Hortons’ life sentences as he chairs the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons.
The Hortons were convicted along with Robert Leaf of killing Samuel Alemo during a holdup of Filito’s Bar at 5th Street and Hunting Park Avenue in Philadelphia.
Also shot were Luz Archella and her daughter Luz Martinez both of whom survived.
Fetterman says the Hortons merely were out for a drive when they saw Leaf and gave him a ride. They didn’t know anything about the robbery.
Um, we’d suggest you get out your hankies and weep for these poor boys who spent 27 years behind bars for just being Good Samaritans but, um, witnesses identified Dennis Horton as the rifle-toting shooter.
Fetterman is either a fool or a liar. Regardless, you don’t want him as governor.
