Update: HE IS ON THE LIQUOR CONTROL COMMITTEE?!?!?!? IS THIS ALL AN EPISODE OF THE TWILIGHT ZONE?
What do you have to do to be kicked out of your state representative perch? There has to be a level of actions where you’re just not allowed to be a state rep anymore.
Joe Brennan has driven drunk about 184 times and now just added beating up his wife.
Seriously, if this guy is in office, then I’m going to run for office and you have to vote for me because… this guy. WTF? Did people just say, “Meh, whatever, he’ll do”?
Sit back and read this…
State Rep. Joe Brennan is charged with assault and drunken driving, according to online court records.
Online records updated late Wednesday show Brennan, D-Lehigh/ Northampton, was arraigned for two separate cases in Fountain Hill.
For one case, he’s charged with simple assault and harassment. In that case, bail was set at $7,000.
In the second case, he’s charged with drunken driving. Bail was set at $500 in that case, records say. District Judge Donna Butler arraigned Brennan and set the bail amounts, records say.
Lehigh County District Attorney James Martin said police responded Wednesday afternoon for a domestic disturbance at Brennan’s home at 1201 Delaware Ave. involving his wife.
The Morning Call of Allentown reported that Brennan attacked his wife on their Fountain Hill porch, citing police records.
According to the newspaper, borough police went to Brennan’s home about 3:45 p.m. and found Brennan’s wife, Norma Jane, had injuries to her hand, knuckles, both feet and her left knee, according to newspaper report citing the police arrest affidavit.
Aww, she’s named Norma Jane. She sounds like a nice lady.
Brennan choked her and hit her in the face and pulled her down to the floor, according to the newspaper.
The whole time he was saying, “VETO THIS!”
“And I believe that Rep. Brennan was later encountered in a motor vehicle stop three blocks from his house,” Martin added.
Fountain Hill police Chief Ed Bachert confirmed Brennan was involved in a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon near Fountain Hill Park, behind the Wawa Food Mart, off Broadway in the borough.
Bachert declined to release any more information about the circumstances surrounding the incident, saying only that it was part of an ongoing investigation. SOURCE: The Express-Times
Ok, so the elected official beats his wife and then endangers the lives of everyone on the road?
He BEAT his wife. He’s done. If this man has any shred of dignity, he’d resign and go immediately to rehab and stay there for one bazillion years.
This is disgusting and he’s out of second chances.
