Another Interesting Coincidence

I mentioned in my last post that one of Chuck's opponents seemed like the most likely source of the spurious craigslist advertisement. Isn't it interesting that the one spreading the news about Chuck's supposed hypocritical craigslist ad is a fervent Sandals supporter? I'm not pointing any fingers here, but isn't it also interesting that Alan Sandals is the only one of the three Democrats in the US Senate race who advertises on craigslist? The text reads:
field organizers wanted-$1000/month

Field organizers wanted for exciting US Senate campaign. Help get rid of Rick Santorum while getting paid!

Alan Sandals is seeking highly motivated, energetic activists who can multi-task and be team player.
Must have excellent communication skills and be able to speak in public.
Must provide a writing sample.
Must have own transportation.
All resumes must be received by 3/20.

Compensation is $1000/month paid biweekly.
  • Job location is philly and suburbs
  • Compensation: $1000/month paid biweekly
  • no -- Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.
  • no -- Please, no phone calls about this job!
  • no -- Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests.
  • yes -- Reposting this message elsewhere is OK.
Wow, Sandals has to pay his canvassers 1,000 bucks a month. Myself and the Chuck's 6,000 other volunteers support him for free. Isn't it amazing what an inspirational candidate can do?

Hat-tip to A Big Fat Slob.

Sandals has received donations from a number of Casey's donors. He hasn't raised much, instead loaning himself a bunch of money. I'd like to see the income statement for his law firm--wonder if there's anything from Pepper Hamilton or there clients. Just wondering.

Great job on this story -- you're the only one staying on top of it.

I saw the PCN call live and thought something was fishy. I've been wondering for a while now why Sandals is REALLY running, who's behind him, or is it just vanity? Talk about blue pills and red pills.

Of course, it's still possible the Casey campaign is involved, too.

I think it is a real post. If you look at the email address on the screen shot it is listed as "" That sounds legit to me.

I have know lost all respect for Sandels and his crazy supporters.
The other day The Daily Kos did yet another poll. The question, Who is the candidate I favor in PA's senate election? Here are the results
Rick Santorum 4 votes or 4 %
Chuck Pennacchio 54 votes or 61%
Alan Sandels 1 vote haha or 1 %
Bob Casey Jr.29 votes or 32 %
Once again Pennacchio won hands down.
Now take into consideration the fact that Daily Kos is "supposed" to be a progressive web blog. Yet their main people have been pushing Casey. They've sold their souls. I've lost respect for them as well.
Now back to this bogus post done by either Sandels or his supporters.Also removing blogs they dont like, Chucks site doesn't do that, grow the f up. Yes, it could have been someone in Casey's camp, but the evidence is not coming out that way.
What in the hell is wrong with so many, so called progressive democrats pushing Casey? Our party leaders using fear of Santorum, to push someone who is basically almost Santorum's twin.
We PA dems have a chance, a chance we haven't had in more then forty years. To not only get a democratic Senator, but one who would be much better then we could have ever hoped.
Why would any PA democrat blow this chance on Casey the third best of three? Or Sandels the second best of three? When they could have the best of the bunch, Pennacchio?
Not only that, there is no way in hell Casey will be able to confront and go after Santorum in the debates. Because he's just like him. Chuck can and will wipe the floor with Santorum. Just as he did with Sandels and Casey in the 2 debates Casey argeed to do.
Here's another question for you PA dems supporting Casey, Where's the anger for him denying most of this states dems a chance to see him debate? Find out what he'll do and where he stands on issues? It makes no sense!When will we l;earn from our mistakes?

Also about that phony Craig's list. That girl was on blog talking about it and nobody there knew what she meant and she couldn't produce a link to it.

And that Craig's list post didn't have an email address that went back to on it. It was some random number email address thingy. Why would anyone not use an if it was legit? This kind of shit wouldn't fly in 6th graders' contest for home room rep. Why would anyone want to reduce a US Senate race to roughly as dignified as monkeys' flingin feces at each other

I couldn't agree more, Austin
