Philly GOP Makes Democratic Blunder Bracket
Written by Vincent J. Smith, Contributing Writer
As March Madness whittles down to the final four teams, the Philadelphia Republican Party took advantage of the excitement and drew up a bracket of their own. This one, however, has a political angle.
Entitled “The Underhanded 8,” the Philadelphia GOP took the recent blunders that their Democratic counterparts have committed in the month of March and positioned them in an Elite Eight-style bracket.
“Usually the month of March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb; however in Philadelphia, the lion continues to roar,” said Joe DeFelice, the Philadelphia Republican Party Executive Director.
“Right before the month started, State Rep JP Miranda was indicted for having a ghost employee on his payroll and ethical issues continue to abound for Philadelphia Democrats as recently as this last week when it was reported that State Rep. Pam DeLissio claimed a homestead exemption in Harrisburg as her primary residence while also registering her car there for insurance reasons. The blatant disregard these individuals have for their voters is ridiculous. We have had our own version of March Madness and thereby we introduce the ‘Underhanded 8.’”
