Law and order has become a hot topic for reasonable voters on both sides of the aisle these days.
John Fetterman has become the golden child in Pennsylvania, but the man has a dark side.
We already knew he was an over-the-top progressive, but he came out of the primary with a massive lead against Trump-backed Mehmet Oz.
That may change after the people of Pennsylvania see who he wanted to put back on the street.
Let Them Go
Records have surfaced showing how strongly Fetterman was working to push an uber-progressive narrative regarding justice reform.
Fetterman was reportedly regularly encouraging the Governor to pardon hardened criminals, including murderers.
For instance, during a virtual event called “Power of Pardon” in 2021, Fetterman, the current Lt. Governor of PA, stated, “A record will quite literally follow you through the rest of your life costing you better job opportunities, better housing opportunities, better employment opportunities and all kinds of other things that really aren’t fair in my opinion quite frankly.
“So, I’m proud to say that through our leadership we’ve conferred more pardons in Pennsylvania than any administration in history.”
Nick Gerace, president of the Protect Our Police political action committee, stated, “He’s the guy who will be the first one screaming and hollering that something needs to be done.
“He’s a danger to Pennsylvania.
“We need to look at criminal justice change but you can’t let violent offenders back on the streets.”
Fetterman, who heads the pardon board in PA, has voted for the most commutations during his time on the board (with one other member equaling him).
Since Fetterman assumed this role, pardons have gone up by more than 50 percent and a whopping 155 percent more than the previous Republican administration.
An example of his work is Daniel Cummings, who was given a life sentence for first-degree murder and pardoned in 2021.
PA’s Correction Secretary has said: “We could reduce our prison population by 1/3 and not make anyone less safe.”
👉 2/3 of those condemned to die in PA’s prison are African American.
We have the power to rectify this now + we absolutely must.

In a day and age where Philadelphia has become one of the most violent cities in the country, is this really the man Pennsylvanians want representing them in Congress?
Oz trailed by nine points right out of the gate, but that margin has since narrowed to less than six points.
He still needs help to win this election, but information like this should prove detrimental to Fetterman’s campaign.
