Scott Wagner Didn’t Show Up to Vote on Opioid Crisis, Now Hypocritically Attacks Wolf

If 80% of life is showing up…

Harrisburg insider Scott Wagner criticized Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf today on opioids. While Wagner making nasty personal attacks against his opponents is nothing new, this was a particularly odd issue for him to try to claim some moral high ground.

Because when it was time for Wagner to do something to address the opioid crisis in the legislature, Wagner wasn’t there.  In 2016, Wagner missed key votes on four pieces of legislation aimed at tackling Pennsylvania’s opioid epidemic.

“Scott Wagner is a world-class hypocrite,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson.“Wagner should take a look in the mirror before he criticizes anyone else since he couldn’t even bother to show up to work to vote on addressing the opioid crisis. When Pennsylvania families needed him to do his job as a legislator and take action to combat the opioid epidemic, Scott Wagner apparently had other priorities.”

VIDEO: Watch Scott Wagner Dismissively Tell a Woman She’s “Young and Naive”

Watch Wagner here

 

Yesterday in Glenside, Harrisburg Insider Scott Wagner dismissively told a woman who asked him if his financial support from the oil and gas industry is related to his denial of climate change, “you’re young and naïve.” While Wagner’s comments are offensive, they’re unfortunately what we’ve come to expect from Wagner as his campaign struggles to gain traction with Pennsylvania voters. Wagner has a history of anger problems, and has even been called “violent” by other Republicans. Last week, he became increasingly flustered when a voter asked Wagner about his campaigning with a cult that teaches women to obey their husbands or face death. Wagner previously told the cult members he agreed with them on “98% of the issues.”

“Since he said last week he agrees on 98% of the issues with a misogynistic cult that teaches […]

WATCH: Flustered Scott Wagner Confronted by Voter Over His Campaigning With a Fringe Cult Leader

Watch here: A clearly rattled Scott Wagner struggling to defend

his campaigning with the leader of a fringe cult

 

Last night, Harrisburg insider Scott Wagner was confronted by a voter at a campaign event in Greensburg over Wagner campaigning with the leader of a fringe cult. The cult leader, Sean Moon, gave the invocation at Wagner’s event on Sunday. While Wagner is now trying to distance himself from the cult after he got caught courting their support, the audio doesn’t lie. Wagner told a member of Moon’s cult at the event “ninety-eight percent of what you believe in, I believe in.”

So what does the cult believe in, ninety-eight percent of which Wagner says he also believes? Well, it teaches that women should obey their husbands or face death, conducts mass weddings where participants hit each other with sticks and […]

COUNT THE LIES: Scott Wagner Courts Fringe Cult, Then Lies After He Gets Caught

Yesterday, Harrisburg insider Scott Wagner repeatedly lied to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a desperate attempt at damage control. On Sunday, July 8, 2018, leader of the “Sanctuary Church” cult Sean Moon gave the invocation at a Wagner campaign event shortly before Wagner spoke. He even endorsed Wagner in the invocation. Moon’s cult teaches that women should obey their husbands or face death, conducts mass weddings where participants hit each other with sticks and attendees carry AR-15 rifles, and wear “crowns of bullets.” Moon himself has been labeled an “anti-LGBT cult leader” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and his father, the cult’s founder, spent time in prison for tax evasion and faced charges of anti-Semitism. Charming group.

After American Bridge released the audio of Wagner courting the cult’s endorsement,Wagner’s campaign made an amateurish attempt at damage control more reminiscent of a student council race than a campaign for Pennsylvania Governor.

“Scott Wagner was courting […]

AUDIO: Scott Wagner Campaigns With Fringe Cult Leader Who Orders Women to Obey Husbands or Face Death

Does Wagner agree with homophobic, misogynistic teachings of his supporter?

Listen to the full event audio here

 

Yesterday, Harrisburg insider Scott Wagner campaigned with the leader of a fringe cult who wears “crowns of bullets,” teaches that women should practice “full obedience” to their husbands at the threat of “doom and death,” says “women’s defiance is more frightening than Lucifer,” and has been labeled an “anti-LGBT cult leader” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Hyung Jin Sean Moon, who gave the invocation at a Wagner event yesterday in Pike County, is the leader of the “Sanctuary Church.” The cult is perhaps best known for conducting mass weddings where couples hit each other with sticks and attendees carry AR-15 rifles. Its founder was also jailed for tax evasion and accused of anti-semitism.

NEW ADS: Pennsylvania Primary Winners Barletta & Wagner Head Into General Tarnished by Opponent Attacks

Paul Mango: If Scott Wagner’s the nominee, “this election is going to be over before Memorial Day — not Labor Day — Memorial Day”

Today, immediately following the Pennsylvania Senate and gubernatorial primary elections, American Bridge released new digital ads targeting newly minted Republican Senate candidate Lou Barletta and gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner. The ads ask Pennsylvania voters – if their nominees’ fellow Republicans have so thoroughly denounced them, how can any Republican voter have confidence in their candidacies?

The 30-second ads will play this week on social media in Pennsylvania, targeted to Republican midterm voters.

American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson said, “While a primary defined by personal character attacks, violent assaults on trackers, and a race to the bottom on who is a bigger cheerleader for Donald Trump has finally come to an end, the bad news is just beginning for Lou Barletta and Scott Wagner. Even Republicans say Barletta and […]

American Bridge Memo Corrects Wagner Pollster’s Claim He Has “No Negatives”

This morning, American Bridge sent an open memo to Scott Wagner’s campaign pollster Rob Schmidt, correcting his recent claim that Wagner has “virtually no negatives.” In the same statement, Schmidt also calls Wagner the “clear frontrunner in the Republican primary for Governor,” which makes him something like the head clown of the circus into which this primary has devolved.

American Bridge Spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following statement:

“Scott Wagner’s campaign staff are either delusional or afraid to tell their temperental boss the truth. We’re betting it’s the latter.”

RE: Scott Wagner’s Negatives

I am writing to correct an error in your September 22 memo to the Wagner campaign, in which you write that Sen. Wagner has “virtually no negatives.” In fact, he has many.

For the sake of brevity I have included only five:

VIDEO: Birds of a Feather: America’s Leading White Nationalist Endorsed Scott Wagner

Scott Wagner was endorsed this weekend by Steve Bannon, the head of Breitbart news and former Trump senior advisor. In case you needed a refresher, Breitbart is a website that “pushed racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic material into the vein of the alternative right.” Sound familiar?

American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following comment:

“Steve Bannon and Scott Wagner share the same repulsive views that favor certain people over others. From disturbing anti-semitic comments to favoring tax giveaways for the wealthiest few and cutting health care for those that need it most, Bannon and Wagner-backed policies should strike fear into Pennsylvanians because they only want to make things great for themselves.”

NEW VIDEO: Scott Wagner: Dishonest, Angry, Unhinged

After being caught on tape assaulting a tracker this week, State Sen. Scott Wagner repeatedly lied to get out of the mess, claiming that he was being pushed around and the tracker was in his face. From the original video, there’s only one person playing the role of the bully in those tapes, and it wasn’t the man behind the camera. And we’re still missing our memory card. Watch the video.

American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following statement: 

“Actions speak louder than words and Scott Wagner’s actions prove he’s an unhinged bully who isn’t fit for office. Scott Wagner, we know you’re angry, but we demand you return our stolen property immediately or we’ll press charges.”
