This is Rich!

Pennsylvania has been abuzz with activity related to the Primaries over the last few weeks. Hillary was at Penn State yesterday, Obama was here a couple of weeks back, and so on. But did you know that Central Pennsylvania is also having an election for the Congress House of Representatives(kinda like a Lok Sabha election)? If you did,.... well you need to get out more. :)

The Congressional election has been a side-show that no one has really paid any attention to. Until recently. One of the candidates, Derek Walker seems to have all the makings of a Republican Senator or a Democrat Governor.

Derek Walker was charged yesterday with felony burglary and criminal trespass charges, as well as misdemeanor disorderly conduct, stalking and four counts of invasion of privacy, according to court documents.

The charges stem from an encounter between Walker and his ex-girlfriend last August. According to the criminal complaint, Walker entered his ex-girlfriend's apartment two months after they broke up and found her "becoming intimate" with a male companion. Walker then told his ex-girlfriend he was taking a video with his cell phone and said, "This video is going to put an end to your job with the school district," according to the complaint.

After being told by Clearfield police not to contact the woman, Walker texted her during a Penn State football game in October, writing, "Wow, that move takes balls, how did you end up with my tickets?" according to the criminal complaint. Another encounter occurred between Walker and the woman at the Sons of Italy Club in Clearfield, according to the complaint.

Walker flatly denied the charges in a statement yesterday, writing he believes the matter is politically motivated.

This is beyond hilarious! Why is the video not being aired on national TV? The elitist liberal media seems to have a bias against covering the perversions of heartland politicians.
