John Fetterman was the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania and he was as nutty then as he is now. During the time he was mayor, he vandalized a business and had to admit that he did.
A video clip of the illegal act by Fetterman has appeared and shows Fetterman damaging the sign for the business. The then-owner of Club 804, Assim Chaudhry, and Cordell Collins, who wanted to buy the business brought in the video showing Fettermqan in the act.
Fetterman changed the sign from “Opening Soon Under New Management” to “Closed Not Opening Soon.”
Chaudry told the council:
“This is the mayor. This is who you guys have running this town.”
Fetterman did not deny it. In fact, he bragged about it during an on-air interview. He said that he was putting the club on notice that he would be closing them down.For the record, Fetterman was unable to shut the business down. Vandalizing the business was bad, but to say he would shut down a legal business, no matter what it is, is over the top. he is not a leader. But, he is a follower of Bernie Sanders. He has nothing but praise for him.

Democrats are hopeful that Fetterman will win his race against Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and contribute to a majority in the evenly divided Senate. Amid criticism over his approach to drug policy, the longtime mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, apparently changed his campaign website.
As recently as last month, the website’s issues page discussed Fetterman’s commitment to Black Lives Matter — although the wording has since been removed. “John served as mayor of a city that’s more than 80% Black, and has championed the idea that Black lives matter since long before it became a hashtag,” an archived version of the website said under a section called “Black Lives Matter.”
Fetterman garnered controversy in 2013 after he responded to what he believed was gunfire by pulling a firearm on an African-American and detaining him until police arrived — an incident that has generated unease among black voters.
Fetterman also has a lengthy history of supporting controversial monitored drug injection sites and drug decriminalization. “I think it’s important that we as a society get in front of it,” Fetterman said of the drug crisis in a 2018 podcast interview with Aaron Watson. “I think it’s important that we as a society have all the options on the table — including needle exchange, which is only technically legal in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh — and even safe injection sites that are being considered.”
Fetterman is hanging on to a small lead, which I find amazing since he is so radical. He has said that he wanted to release 1/3 of all prisoners and as Lt Governor, he voted to release murderers more often than anyone on the parole board. He wants to end fracking which would remove 24,000 people from the workforce in Pennsylvania. Those jobs pay on average a little over $63,000 dollars a year. That’s a lot of money and does not even include lost tax revenue or the people who make a living supplying those workers with the things they want or need.
He is also for legalizing all drugs. So, in a state with a soaring crime rate, he wants to send 1/3 of them home from prison and they would have drugs legally available to them. What could possibly go wrong with that?
