PPG (Incredibly) Supports Discredited Dem Rep. Jesse White

It’s no surprise to MDN that the left-leaning and increasingly anti-drilling Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial board published an editorial today supporting PA State Rep. (and Democrat) Jesse White, from Washington County, in a primary set for May 20. You may recall that Jesse himself is strongly anti-drilling, unethical, a fraud and should have been removed from office months ago. White used fake online IDs to attack and smear the reputation of some of his own pro-drilling constituents (see How the Mighty Have Fallen: PA Rep White Admits Guilt, Not Sorry). Incomprehensibly, the PA Democrat Party refused to remove him from office. Profound ethical lapses are nothing new for Dems, so this, apparently, was ho-hum for them. Stretching the bounds of incredulity, White is running once again–for a fifth term. But this time he has a challenger (see PA Rep. White (He of Fake Online IDs) Gets a Primary Challenger). Constituents from White’s district have written to MDN to tell us how hard they are working to get rid of the anti-drilling, unethical White. We endorse their efforts.

We have to ask–who in their right minds would vote for a fraud like White? Do ethics and standards mean nothing anymore? Shame on the editors of the PPG for their endorsement of someone who should have been removed from office months ago…
