So Lebanon County is filled with a bunch of moronic republican voters. Tell me something I didn't already know.

Lebanon County also voted to re-elect Pa. State Senator Mike Folmer.

Citizen Mike knowingly took an Unconstitutional taxpayer paycheck and still got another four years.

Can't agree with Sterns.

Holden won because the GOP establishment didn't bother to get behind their candidate.

Give it up Sterns - had the shoe been on the other foot, you would have been disavowing "buying" his re-election.

You're a sore loser!

When do we start hearing the words Government Transparency come out of any republican politicians mouth ?

The words seem to be a banned in the new republican party since election day.

Lawmakers reached on Tuesday who confirmed they are taking paychecks were Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon County, and Rep. Eugene DePasquale, D-York. Other midstate legislators could not be reached Tuesday

You read the article in Pennlive and tell me.

Swanger and Gingrich made a choice. NO UNCONSTITUTIONAL PAYCHECK FOR US !!!

Several, including Delozier, Helm, Grell, Gingrich and Swanger, indicated at the time that it was their intent to hold off taking a paycheck until the budget was finalized.

Mike Folmer made the choice to disregard his oath to the Pa. State Constitution and take his UNCONSTITUTIONAL TAXPAYER PAYCHECK.

Lawmakers reached on Tuesday who confirmed they are taking paychecks were Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon County, and Rep. Eugene DePasquale, D-York. Other midstate legislators could not be reached Tuesday.

Love the guy or hate him. He's a political hypocrite that uses the Constitution as a fundraising or political tool against others. The man sure as heii doesn't abide by it.

I just got another four years. Didn't you hear ?

How does a sitting lawmaker that teaches Constitutional classes to others citizens take a taxpayer paycheck without a current state spending budget in place ?

I still can't believe Folmer took a paycheck over the integrity of his office. This is far worse then voting yourself a legal pay raise in the middle on the night.
