Now that Congressman Bob Brady has screwed all the other Democrats in Pennsylvania who will step up and make him pay? The man who controls Philadelphia Dems with an iron fist forced most of them to vote for a Republican gerrymandered redistricting because he liked what it did for him. Brady didn’t give a damn about either other Democratic Congressional candidates or those people living in the Commonwealth stuck with an extreme GOP radical delegation.
It’s time for a reformer in Philly to step up to this bully and bring him down. No Democrat in Pennsylvania can now legitimately criticize or challenge the crazy scheme because 36 House Democrats voted for it under orders (threats?) from Brady making it a bipartisan piece of crap. Can you imagine the joy and glee in the Republican caucus when all of these supposedly “progressive” Democrats voted to enshrine a solid GOP majority in the state Congressional delegation?
If these Representatives will sell us out this easily what won’t they do? Someone needs to make Brady pay. Who will step up? Neighborhood Networks sprang up to challenge the corrupt machine politics in Philadelphia and some serious minded reformers have run for office. Stan Shapiro and Marc Stier need to recruit someone to atone for this travesty.
Update: Brady does have a primary challenger. I’d forgotten that Judge Jimmie Moore stepped down from the bench to run for the seat. Go show him love ($$$).
