Pennsylvania just gets stranger and stranger.
Adding fuel to the fire was the was admission that Health Secretary Levine removed her mother from a personal care home while not allowing the same priviledge to every other Pennsylvanian, as reported by State Representative Seth Grove of York County. Remember folks, this is the same Secretary Levine who sentenced hundreds of elderly Pennsylvanians to death by forcing the admission of Covid19 patients to nursing homes. On Monday morning, Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano called for the removal of Secretary of Health Dr. Levine, who he says has committed medical malpractice in mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.
That sounds good to me but I don't live there.
I wonder about manslaughter charges . . .
Egads, you are kind of blood thirsty!
In the short run, this person's ability to lead has been seriously hurt and it hurts the Governor very badly. I suspect a resignation might be forthcoming.
In the longer term, I am not certain on the viability of suing the State, but lawyers are an innovative bunch of people.
Tar, feathers, a rail....
I am not blood thirsty. I have never had Black pudding (blood pudding) nor do I care for blood sausage. I have had blood sausage. Give me a good Thuringian bratwurst. Even with curry ketchsup and curry powder on it. Mit pomme frites und mayonaise, und ein gute bier!
But the idea is to send a message that such actions are not tolerated. Just having them resign probably is not punishment enough since they people involved will probably just become a paid lobbyist, lobbying their cronies still in government. And regular prison, no country club. In fact, put them in with lifers whose grandparents died from Covid-19 but don't give them special protection. I wonder if they would then squeal like a pig . . .
Black pudding is one of life's great treats. Hard to find up here in Orange county though.
It will be interesting to see how things pan out after this. I am very done with career politicians. And I really hate the 'do as I say, not as I do' crowd. IMO we could benefit from more small biz owners, caregivers, workers in govt who have a dash of common sense - and ethics.
