Why is it not considered an objective fact -- and a really important one -- that Jack Wagner took over Luke Ravenstahl's campaign?
Here is an easy-to-see list of Wagner endorsers who previously (who in past campaigns and in this very race!) supported our wonderful, wonderful Mayor. The list also comprises all of Jack Wagner's significant support.
State Sen. Jim Ferlo (reappointed by Ravenstahl to URA board)
Council President Darlene Harris (appointed teenage Ravenstahl to Dem committee)
Councilman Rev. Ricky Burgess
Administration #3 Official Paul McKrell
Director of Public Works Rob Kaczorowski
Fraternal Order of Police Local 1
Firefighters Local 1Operating Engineers Local 66
Greater PA Regional Council of Carpenters
Steamfitters Local 449
IBEW Local 5Former mayor Sophie Masloff
Does this sound like change anybody is supposed to credit as actual?
And now Luke is running literal swift boat ads against Wagner's sole significant opponent. And Wagner thinks he can just innocently criticize them both for being "immature".
It's insulting to every Pittsburgher's intelligence.
It's a scandal.
