ACDC chair Jim Burn issues a P-G op-ed piece today, in which he informs us of efforts to reorganize the party apparatus by using better tools, technology and training. He is fending off accusations of "machine" politics, and blame in general for an uninspiring primary election.
Controller Tony Pecora, after apparently losing the endorsement by one vote to Prothonatary Michael Lamb, went to court and ended up winning the party endorsement.
Didn't this happen the other way around? Isn't Michael Lamb the endorsed Democrat? Isn't Tony Pokora's name spelled wrong?
At any rate, the author leans heavily on the fact that since candidates work hard to win the endorsement, and sometimes drop out after failing, all must be right with the process.
It would have been illuminating if The Allegheny Democrat were still around to issue a rebuttal, but the site went on lock-down mere hours after its discovery.
