~ Is Harper "Scummy?" ~
“When was the last time you busted on Dick Shellenberger? A year-and-a-half ago?”
Asked of Ron Harper, Jr. on Talkback under the article, “E-mail sparks LeCrone review,” (click here).
“who knows... for crying out loud people - I don't get paid for this and it's not like I am sitting around doing nothing. I have a family of 7 to support. Instead of reading anything into my reporting or not reporting as the case may be consider the above.
Part of Harper’s response posted on Talkback on 9-27-06.
“Becky - I am self-employed....you have ZERO idea of who I get my $'s from and frankly its none of your business.”
Harper in an email to me on 9-24-06 as part of the 717thepulse incident.
“Jealousy over my lack of a real "job" is soooo very typical of you Becky. It's not good to dwell on it.”
Harper in another email to me on 9-24-06 as part of the 717the pulse incident.
Well, this blogger says, “Harper back on Senate Payroll” as of June 19, 2006 (click here). I have no idea who this person is and please note they do use the term “reportedly.”
In May, the Politics Pa website ran the story, “BRIGHTBILL BACKER HARRASSES 13 YEAR OLD POLL WORKER,” (click here).
Harper was asked about this story on Talkback under the “97th voters go with Bear” and this is his response on May 18, 2006 (click here and page down for the "Talkback"):
my, aren't your panties bunched up?
Look if you are doing nothing, you won't be criticized. I have certainly cut back on my posting here because it's clear to me that so many of you have little time for my opinion. That's ok - it's america but for the same reason - I am sure not losing sleep over your opinions!
There are just too many things to respond to but here's my response. (frankly, anything I say will be twisted and for that reason - I am not going back and forth with my pearls)
John Bear: Prove me wrong. The story is well-researched and accurate. I haven't had anyone - even the Bear people refute ANYTHING - not a word - in the story. Go back and read the Judge Musser stuff. You people crack me up! People said the same stuff back then with him. Now where is he @? Opps...5thEstate.com was right
My work: You will never find a story on 5thEstate.com where I was paid to work on a campaign. I don't do Lancaster County races. I will tell you that since I get attacks anyway - I am going to reevaluate. Why should I hold myself to some standard at the expense of my family when people don't appreciate my efforts on 5thEstate.com.
Petolichios. I have known them for years. I helped Lou hang the drywall in his Lancaster County house and even showed him HTML tips that completely changed the way he was doing web pages!
Apparently they - Laural Lynn and his wife - have no compunction about lying, distorting and twisting things for political headlines. You are reading their press release on a POLTICAL website which was issued on election day! They are so scummy that they will take their irresponsible actions (letting a kitten run loose) who apparently got run over by a car and end up saying their cat was murdered?!? It is so silly - it's like from a parody movie. How would someone even know whose kitten it is?! How would they time it so the cat could be run over. The neighbor who ran it over is probably laughing right now.
Anyone who takes their children and puts them in a press release for political gain and LIE about what happens is just sick. This so called "Christian" family is really teaching their children well. But with Lou the ends justifies the means.
Want to hear more? Lou is on this board (being a coward and hiding behind a screen name of course) and "pretends" to be someone that just happened to hear something! Of course, he is "hearing" himself talk but quoting it like it's true!
You people are being played and as normal - I am doing everything in the open with my name etc...while they slink around and pound their chest about how righteous they are!
Why wouldn't I have a fake name and come on this board like you phonies? It's easy to take shots at people when you think no one knows who you are.
The election: As I said before the election - God is in charge and I trust Him. I can live with the results!
Your comments about the election does not account for the big picture. The "earned media" that the challengers got (that's the news coverage on TV, newspaper and radio) is worth millions and millions of dollars. The incumbents had to overcome that onslaught and the only way is buying your own. So when the media writes stories about incumbent out-spending the challenger 12 to 1, it's really not taking into account the whole picture.
No man is a profit in his own home and you can disregard my professional opinion and go back to your regularly scheduled snipping.
In Harper’s “professional opinion” he has just defined the couple, his former friends, as “lying, distorting and twisting things,” and “scummy” and “sick.” Nice. I think he has said all of those things about me and quite a number of people as well!
On July 10, 2006, Harper did something in Dauphin County that got him arrested and charged with defiant trespass (click here). I am still looking into the details of this incident.
On 9-24-06, as part of the 717thepulse incident, Harper sent me this email:
hehe... you are soo jealous that I have REAL news aren't you Becky? I wouldn't waste one byte on 5thEstate.com for replying to an insignificant therapy blog. (except when I write about Gil Smart's trolls - you and Markle) There are like 20 people that even have a clue - why would I bore the 10-20's thousands of 5thEstate.com readers with this dribble? This is just to protect myself.
Let me explain more journalism 101 stuff since you apparently don't understand: When you have an exclusive - other media has to quote you as the source! That's the way it works. You wouldn't know much about it that - obviously - since you don't print news - just blather! If you keep reading 5thEstate.com, you might learn how its done! They are more mature than you - that's why they quote the REAL source for news!
Becky - I am self-employed....you have ZERO idea of who I get my $'s from and frankly its none of your business.
Talkback? Please - check my posts of late - got real work to do! The bottom-line I COULD post all I want - did your boss know how you used his time to surf the web and use his long distance to "research" stuff for your therapy-blog? HA! You have ZERO integrity so you want to attack me and even Straub when it's a fact that you are the GUILTY one!
Since you like to ask others - the real questions is what are in the world are you doing for money?!
How did you like my “REAL” news about your arrest, Harper? Why doesn’t the Christian do-gooder tell us what happened?
Your lying, arrogance and ego are really getting disgusting. Why don’t you tell us who you work for, Harper?
There will be more at a later date and please check back on Monday. Maybe Patrick Snyder could help Mike Sturla out with the personal loan thing?
