GOP Blocks Vote on HR520

The resolution asks for an investigation into Governor Corbett's handling of the Sandusky case.

This press release was sent in by Mike Hays, a candidate for the 26th District in the House of Representatives.

On Wednesday in Harrisburg, Rep. Tim Hennessey and Republican leadership showed that they are more interested in protecting their own than protecting children in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The GOP blocked a vote on HR 520, a resolution urging an investigation by the U.S. Attorney General's office into Gov. Corbett's handling of the Jerry Sandusky investigation.

Mike Hays, Democratic candidate for the 26th state representative seat, said: “The truth matters. And what could be more important than uncovering the truth in one of the worst child sexual abuse scandals of modern times?”

“The Republicans in Harrisburg abandoned our students when they cut over $1 billion in funding over the course of 12 months. Hennessey abandoned the Coatesville Area School District when he supported budgets that cut over $5 million in district funding since 2008-09,” Hays said.

This is a pattern. I urge my opponent to return to the House floor and vote on HR 520.

Background

Mike hays is a loser who will vote and fight against anything republican. Funny how the media and dems love bipartisan govt, unless the repub's dont agree with dems.

The resolution by DeLuca, and sponsored by his Democrat buddies was a political smear, so of course no one reputable is associated with it. Mr. Hays is very left-wing, even extreme in his views, and would do well in urban areas, like Philly.
