    OMG! if anyone supports this woman in this quest, there is no world left to live in. She couldn't handle being a mayor of a city, let alone running for Congress. We have enough do do birds in there, we don't need her added to the mix. She failed the citizens of Harrisburg, and would do the same for those in Congress!

    Lets see.. her in congress how will that go.. well her staff would be totlally over paid in 2 months, she would bash each person on their daily lives and personnal choices, she will sling racail comments and remarks at every corner, Well drive away what little work there is…. So for the sake of the nation.. NO.. the woman best bet, we be crawl back into the whole she oozed out of.
