I just returned from Johnstown Pa and you should see the pork Mertha has brought to Johnstown. It’s no wonder the people keep electing him to office. There are building, bridges, office buildings named after him and even one medical building named after his wife.
You’re exactly right, they keep reelecting him because of his pork.
Last year during his reelection campaign against Diana Irey there was a video played here of a newsman interviewing murtha voters. Each one of them after being asked if they knew certain things about him said no but they’d still vote for him.
The questions were about derogatory remarks about our military, corruption and other bad things. It was evident they didn’t care about the bad stuff because he brings home the pork.
