WITHDRAW, STEDMAN! – 2
There’s no surprise in the LNP story, “Stedman suspended Fetterman for reasons ‘related to political campaign activities,’ violating policy county,” (click here).
On February 12, I published the below (click here for the original). Withdraw your candidacy for judge today, Stedman!
From numerous sources, this is what I was told about Fetterman’s suspension:
Fetterman was suspended after a verbal blowup at a meeting with Stedman on Wednesday, January 30th. The meeting occurred after Fetterman’s attorney, Michael Hess of Burke and Hess, wrote a letter critical of Stedman to the Republican Committee of Lancaster County.
The letter called out Stedman for meddling in the district attorney race and actively supporting his Assistant District Attorney Karen Mansfield to replace him among other things. Actively supporting a candidate for another office is a violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct, which applies to candidates for judge.
On the Saturday morning after Fetterman was suspended, the county commissioners had an emergency meeting and directed Stedman to reinstate Fetterman. Stedman didn’t follow personnel policy when he suspended Fetterman. The County was afraid of a lawsuit because Stedman suspended Fetterman for political reasons.
** “We were unable to get the livestream going last night, however the meeting was recorded and the files are currently exporting. The video will be available on our YouTube page by this afternoon.”
This email just in and below. Hire Tony Dastra for heaven’s sake! This is unbelievable!
