Bernie and Wayne

Bernie O'Hare is running a story that says that Wayne Woodman pushed Wanda Mercado-Arroyo off the bus to the Republican State Committee, to give the seat to his wife, Lisa Scheller. Although Bernie writes that he isn't calling Woodman a bigot, he points out a couple times that Mercado-Arroyo is Hispanic, and questions how inclusive Woodman really is toward that group? That story was pitched to this blog several weeks ago, and I rejected it. It came from somebody who doesn't have much use for Wayne Woodman. When it landed on Bernie's desk, it found fertile ground. Although Bernie will argue differently, and cite facts, certain people are consistently treated well by him, and others, not so well; Me, I don't like anybody.
While we're on the subject on Hispanics, I like to announce that Steven Ramos collected the required amount of signatures in his run for Allentown's new 22nd State House District, mandated because of the surge in the Hispanic population. His candidacy is supported by Wayne Woodman, who had hired Steven several years ago to direct the local party office.

Mike,

I don't pitch stories. I pass on what I have heard, and know to be true to people like you because you have a blog and we have a relationship.
Your decision not to write about it is yours alone.Instead of questioning why someone else finds Woodman's actions curious/newsworthy why not ask yourself why you didn't.

scott@7:33, i consider my blog post an informed commentary. although i used the word pitch, i didn't identify you as the pitcher, so i gave myself some poetic license in the word choice. i have no issue with you taking exception to that choice of word. i didn't find woodman's action newsworthy, but do believe that with you and bernie, woodman's actions are often suspect.

Mike,

If by suspect you mean that when I see behavior or actions that are counter productive/destructive/abusive/corrupt...by people involved in public positions I comment on it to those I know, then I plead guilty.

Perhaps Colonel Tikhonov would feel far more at home with a one-party election, but I, for one, am glad to see that Mr. Ramos has collected enough signatures to formally qualify for the 22nd State House race.

Mr.Ramos please be careful in your dealings with the party chair and his sidekick. It is easy to see where their priorities are.
