  • Irey approached to run against Specter

    03/14/2009 9:27:18 AM PDT · by Clintonfatigued · 92 replies · 2,016+ views
    Several Republican conservative fundraisers have approached Washington County Commissioner Diana Irey to ask her to consider a primary run against Sen. Arlen Specter. Sources confirm they have offered to help her raise money. One strategist said of the close-door meeting the conservative group was particularly impressed that when Irey went up against Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Johnstown, in the 2006 midterm primaries, she was able to raise between $300 to $400K online.

    Defeating John Murtha: Part 1 Wednesday, April 04, 2007 1:20 PM Last summer and fall, I worked with many others in the campaign -- the crusade -- waged by Diana Lynn Irey to defeat Congrerssman John Murtha in Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District. As anyone who's read my columns knows, I have great admiration for Diana and her campaign staff. Murtha is a corrupt politician, known as "The Prince of Pork," who's more concerned with ensuring he has a life-time job in Congress than with protecting American security. He's a symbol of everything that's wrong with American politics, and it's critical...

    A family's fight Amanda Gillooly Staff writer Thursday, December 07, 2006 CANONSBURG -- At the first mention of his son, Darryl Sharratt immediately reaches for a big, blue scrapbook that chronicles the young man's career in, and love for, the military. Justin Sharratt's mother, Theresa Sharratt, said he dreamed of being a military man ever since he was a small child. She thumbed through the pages, finally finding what she was looking for: A picture capturing a smiling 3-year-old Justin clad in camouflage. Above the picture is an assignment dating to his nursery school days. The questioned posed was, "What...

    House Democrats will decide today whether to install as their majority leader one of the most scandal-tainted members of Congress. Today's vote on Rep. John P. Murtha -- whom likely Speaker Nancy Pelosi enthusiastically supports -- comes 10 days after Democrats seized control of the House and Senate after promising to clean up the corruption that they said had become a hallmark of the Republican Congress. snip....

    The top U.S. commander for Iraq rejected yesterday proposals from Senate Democrats to immediately pull troops from Iraq or do it on a specific timetable starting in March. "Our troops' posture needs to stay where it is as we move to enhance the capabilities of the Iraqi security forces," Gen. John Abizaid, the head of U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee, "and then we need to assess whether or not we can bring major combat units out of there." His response was, in effect, a dismissal of a proposal from incoming Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin,...

John P. Murtha's bid to become majority leader, saying that the presumed speaker's acts have cast doubt on her party's promise to clean up the "culture of corruption" in Washington.     "How can Americans believe that the Democrats will return integrity to the House when future Speaker Pelosi has endorsed an ethically challenged member for a leadership position?" said Melanie Sloan, executive director of the liberal group Citizens...

    JOHNSTOWN — A few years ago, the thought of another serious challenge to John P. Murtha’s 12th District seat would have seemed unlikely at best. But since the 74-year-old Democrat stepped into the national spotlight last year and called for an immediate withdraw from Iraq, he has been under fire. Murtha says he’s fine with it. He maintains his redeployment plan is the right one and that the majority of the American people agree. Enter stage right, Washington County Commissioner Diana Irey. She says Murtha is “dead wrong” and that his words will haunt him on Election Day. “It’s going...
