Scott Wallace is running for the Democratic nomination

Last edited Tue Apr 24, 2018, 12:25 PM - Edit history (1)

to oppose Brian Fitzpatrick in Congress. Fitzpatrick, a former FBI agent, is a coward and a Trump shill. Wallace's primary opponent, Rachel Reddick, registered to vote when she was 24 as a Republican. Public records show she did not vote in 2008 or 2012--so she did not vote for Barack Obama. She says she has considered herself a Democrat for ten years--yet somehow did not get around to changing her registration *or* to vote for the first African American President in our country's history. She did change her registration to Democratic *last August*--so she hasn't been a Democrat for even a year!

Scott Wallace, whom she has tried to smear as a rich guy who voted last (as a Democrat, needless to say) from "his mansion in Maryland" and who "owns a house in a gated community in South Africa" was born in Bucks County, where his father raised chickens and his mother was president of Planned Parenthood of Bucks. After law school, he spent his early life working in Congress with both Republicans and Democrats, chiefly on getting benefits for veterans injured by Agent Orange and trying to get other benefits for them. He was also involved heavily in prison reform.

For the past 20 years, he and his wife have

...run the Wallace Global Fund, a charitable foundation working to empower women, fight climate change, and create the clean energy jobs of the future. Their work has taken them throughout America and around the world, testing solutions and learning lessons to help empower everyday working people and ensure a sustainable future for their children.

Thus explaining his homes in Maryland and South Africa.

And to put the cherry on top, he is the grandson of Henry Wallace, FDR's VP and former Secretary of Agriculture, who designed the Depression programs to save the farmers in the Dust Bowl states.

His great-great grandfather worked on agricultural issues for Theodore Roosevelt, and his great-grandfather was Secretary of Agriculture under Harding and Coolidge.

Reddick says she registered as a Republican because she came from a Republican family; Scott Wallace has a pedigree of Progressivism with a record of innovation and compassion with both parties on behalf of working Americans.

1. Regarding your last paragraph:

Didn't you mean "Scott WALLACE has a pedigree of Progressivism..."?

3. Looking forward to voting for him

He seems like the most likely candidate to beat Lyin' Brian.
