Awful State of the County

It seems that not a week goes by without Diane Marseglia being in the news.

Todays it’s this story referring to a Lower Makefield guy who decided to run for supervisor.  Problem is that his company, where he is the general manager, moves the voting machines for the county, and he didn’t disclose that.

I’m not inclined to believe that he had a plan to haul the machines off and replaced them with machines locked and loaded with his name.  This is Bucks County PA, not Hudson County NJ.  But it was a conflict of interest, people complained, and the decision was made to have county workers move the machines in Lower Makefield.

Since this could happen in the future, I’m all for addressing it in some fashion.  Marseglia, however, in true Democrat fashion, wants to push all kinds of punitive rules and regulations.  Not only does she want to stop people from running for office if they (or the company they work for) are moving voting machines, she doesn’t want them making campaign contributions over $50.

No one likes conflicts of interest, but come on.  Why do Dems always go off the cliff?  Employees of companies who move voting machines are prohibited from making campaign contributions, or risk losing business for their employer.  Yet another lefty pol who likes to talk about freedom, but will strangle it at every opportunity.

Even worse is the response from Martin and Loughery.  Martin, in true muscular fashion, said… nothing.  From Loughery we get this:

Loughery, however, indicated he would be willing to discuss the proposed policy if it were put on a future meeting agenda

Agenda?  Marseglia’s “agenda” is the newspaper, and she uses it to every advantage.  Declining to comment and speaking fussily about formal agendas is arrogant and stupid.  You want to get re-elected?  Talk to us.
