Pennsylvania Democrats Elect a Dead Lawmaker to Their State Legislature

On Tuesday, Pennsylvania voters headed to polls and proceeded to elect the Democratic Party’s US Senate candidate John Fetterman – despite him suffering from a mental disability due to his recent stroke and his overall poor health.

This disturbing scene has revealed a new level of partisan tribalism unparalleled in American history. Following Fetterman’s embarrassing televised debate against his Republican opponent Mehmet Oz, in reflexive fashion, the mainstream media proceeded to prop-up the struggling Democrat candidate, with the Washington Post even going so far as to hale his TV debate disaster as “a milestone for the disability community,” before claiming that Fetterman had broke the glass ceiling disabled people “underrepresented at every level of elected office.”

Hyper-partisan media operatives intentionally ignored the obvious question: whether a stroke victim like Fetterman was in fact mentally fit to serve in such a high-powered and demanding political office. To make matters worse, Fetterman flatly refused to release his doctor’s medical assessment of his condition.

Critics say that Fetterman’s election to the US Senate represents a real race to the bottom – making a mockery of the democracy in America. It’s the embodiment of pure power politics – whereby the party can and will elect anyone to office, regardless of their physical fitness or cognitive ability.

Just how bad can this state of affairs get? Could partisan voters go so far as to elect a dead candidate?

Incredibly, Fetterman’s cynical victory was topped this week by another state race in Pennsylvania…

A deceased Democratic official won reelection in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Yes, really.

Democrat Tony DeLuca was the longest-serving member of the Pennsylvania state House of Representatives, serving for nearly 40 years. He died last month at age 85 after battling lymphoma.

But that did not stop voters from reelecting him.

In fact, DeLuca dominated his challenger, Queonia “Zarah” Livingston of the Green Party, by more than 70 points. With more than 95% of the vote counted, DeLuca won with 86% of the vote compared to Livingston’s 14%.

Despite his death, election officials were not able to remove DeLuca’s name from the ballot in time for Election Day, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Still, Pennsylvania Democrats celebrated the victory as one that honors DeLuca’s legacy.

“While we’re incredibly saddened by the loss of Representative Tony DeLuca, we are proud to see the voters to continue to show their confidence in him and his commitment to Democratic values by re-electing him posthumously,” the Pennsylvania House Democrats said in a statement.

While it is possible that some voters did not know that DeLuca had passed, most voters likely voted for him over his far-left challenger knowing there would later be a special election to fill the seat…
