I’ve tried to explain this to a few reporters through the years: Namely, that the Republican party in the suburbs is quite entwined with Philadelphia’s Democratic machine.
This illustrates my point. The same heavy hitters that supported the recently-convicted state Sen. Vince Fumo are now backing Pat Meehan, the Republican candidate for Joe Sestak’s open seat.
He was the U.S. Attorney who convicted Fumo. Tidy, huh?
