Is Phil English (R-PA 03) one of the House's sexual predators to be outed?
Edited on Sat Oct-21-06 09:42 AM by BurtWorm
This and other Down with Tyranny posts makes me think maybe so:

http://downwithtyranny.blogspot.com/2006/10/pa-03-update-steve-porter-sues-phil.html



Phil English, long-rumored to be a child predator and closet queen-- and appropriately nicknamed Jabba-- is a grotesque creature with a reputation as an untrustworthy sneak and a dirty player. Many closet cases, used to living their lives furtively and in the dark, always on guard about being found out, denounced and punished, lie as easily as they tell the truth and often lose the ability to know truth from lies. That would be an apt description of Erie's hideous 6 term congresscritter.

In 2004 English was responsible for spreading rumors throughout PA-03 that Steve Porter, his Democratic opponent, was a Nazi. Porter is a Jewish music professor. He decided to challenge English again this year and has been running an above board, issue-oriented campaign. He steadfastly refuses to make political capital about English's two arrests for picking up teenage male prostitutes. English of course, only knows how to campaign in the gutter. He can't run on his record since all of his votes are of the rubber stamp variety and he has voted against the fundamental interests of his constituents at every turn, a completely bought and paid for corporate shill, with bribe money coming out of every orifice of his porcine body.

If you think you've had enough of these lying Republican crooks, imagine how Steve Porter felt when English started using his massive warchest of corporate bribes to blanket the district with more vicious lies and slander. This morning Porter sent out a press release with this introduction: "Today, my wife and I, along with our lawyer, struck a blow for our democracy-- not just for our personal restitution, but for the processes of our democracy. For far too long, we have allowed candidates and the media to disgrace the electoral process. We began an effort to halt that trend today. The press release is below. I hope it garners national attention and generates a discussion of the entire issue so that we can concentrate on the things that are truly important to our nation."

Heres's a previous DWT post with more details:

http://downwithtyranny.blogspot.com/2006/08/is-pennsylvania-hefty-right-wing.html

I've written a bit about Rep. Phil English here at DWT in the past. And no matter who you ask in DC (or back in Erie) one thing you learn is that you do not want to get between this man and a ham-and-cheese sandwich. But that's old news. Actually the tale I'm about to impart is old news too-- old news that never quite saw the light of day. But I'm jumping ahead of myself.

Today I was cleaning up some of the old comments and I came across 3 I had never seen, all on the Phil English link above. With a little amateur sleuthing I traced one to a local Erie, PA blog called Erie Rant.

The latest rash of alleged pedophile scandals of those holding respected positions in Erie County is beginning to cast doubts on current congressman Phil English. There are reports that English was arrested by Erie County Police while serving as Erie County Comptroller while Louis Tullio was Mayor. Sources report that officers reported to Tullio that Phil English was caught soliciting a black male youth for sex a late summer evening near Buffalo Road.

Apparently Mayor Tullio did not want the scandal to effect him. So he had the officers release English with the understanding that he would leave town never to return. Is this the real reason Phil English ran for state treasurer in 88 after serving as Erie County Comptroller? Was English only able to return home after the death Mayor Tullio. If this story is true did this secret die with Mayor Tullio?




I spoke to an old political expert and friend in Sharon, PA, right across the stateline from Youngstown and part of English's northwest Pennsylvania district. What she told me was pretty shocking. The highly unpopular Congressman English, often called "Jabba" or "Congressman Glutton," has had some pretty freaky rumors circulating about him for many years. Although my friend said she had no first hand knowledge of English's much whispered-about dalliance with a young male prostitute in Harrisburg (something that I found was mentioned in the Wayne Madsen Report), she knew quite a lot about the married congressman's uncontrollable urges for young males. She says that he was arrested quite a few years-- and many pounds-- ago in flagrante delicto. His victim was an underage African-American boy and he was hauled to Mayor Tullio's home in the wee hours of the night, in handcuffs. They mayor, a virtual feudal baron for 2 decades in the area, made him swear to never run for office again and to get out of town in return for the incident to be disappeared.

3. I have a feeling that REAL hard-core racists wouldn't see it that way
Since Republickers see gay sex as dirty, and black people as inferior, they would see it as less disgusting if he did it with black children.

They'd be relieved that he wasn't degrading "nice, christian white boys."

5. because the party told them to. Goose stepping.
probably a lot of candidates are selected and pushed through by the party machine. "election" is merely a formality - more and more now a days.

8. I hope
this is uncovered if it's true. English's ads run non-stop on the radio here, slamming Porter for moving here from New York 4 years ago and, for "expoloring the the benefits of legalizing prostitution". I think he ran these same exact ads in the previous election-I'm sick of hearing them! The Fat Bastard must go!
