  • The Opinionated One

    I do not live in the district that Mr. Wagner was voted to represent. However, I did see the negative campaign ads on TV. Totally disgusting. I did look up information that was the gist of one ad. The lawsuit filed against the widow. Mr. Wagner did nothing wrong, but was made to sound like a greedy Gus by the widow and her son. The woman and her son were approached by a private investigator regarding the lawsuit (from 2004, I might add). Is this what politics become? Digging and digging until the opponent finds something negative about a candidate. If that is the case, we are in a whole lot of trouble. Not just PA, but the whole country.
