My Dad told me he went to a speakeasy in New York during Prohibition times. He said “You bump elbows with gangsters in New York.” I guess that Coatesville’s rum runner doesn't qualify as a gangster even if he died from 2 pops in the back of the head on Harmony Street.
I wonder if Eric Frein shopped at that gun show?
On the final weekend of their campaigns, Wolf and his Republican opponent, Gov. Corbett, were reaching out to the loyalists that politicians call "the base."
Wolf spent much of Saturday in heavily Democratic Philadelphia, hitting rain-soaked rallies from Germantown to West Philadelphia to a supermarket in Point Breeze, where 40 union members chanted, "We want Wolf!"
Eighty-eight miles west, Corbett, too, was working a friendly crowd, going from booth to booth Saturday morning at a gun show attended by hundreds in Lebanon.
The event came as a Corbett campaign adviser, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that the National Rifle Association was urging its 250,000 Pennsylvania members via e-mail to vote for Corbett. The NRA grades candidates - it gave him an A and Wolf an F.
At the gun show, vendors and visitors alike approached Corbett, telling him as he strolled the sprawling Lebanon County Expo Center, "You've got my vote."
His day began with a visit to a Baptist church in Harrisburg and ended with get-out-the-vote stops at small businesses in Schuylkill County and rallies in Luzerne County.MORE AT:
