Can Fetterman overcome pulling a gun on a unarmed black man who was jogging?

I don't live in the State but I do donate and I am an activist online. I have not decided who to root for but leaning for Connor Lamb.

The man who Fetterman chased down with a gun seems to have forgiven him even though Fetterman has not been honest about the details.


Snip-- "He lied about everything," Miyares wrote.

He has previously said he was jogging in the neighborhood when he heard fireworks, just before Mr. Fetterman confronted him.

"He knew my race. The gun was aimed at my chest while he loaded five red shells into the tube of the 12-gauge TAC shotgun," Miyares wrote. "Once he finished, he aimed it at my face out of the Ford F-150 Truck."

But in a second letter to The Inquirer, postmarked on the same day last month, Miyares said Mr. Fetterman could face a political backlash now if the Senate candidate revised his account.

"Telling the truth on an incident 10 years ago could cause him more harm than good," Miyares wrote. "Mr. Fetterman and his family have done far more good than that one bad act or action and, as such, should not be defined by it."

He signed that letter: "Gooo Fetterman."

1. Don't know what you think about this.Hate guys that go around pointing guns at people

We were taught to never point a gun at someone unless you intended to kill them

2. Fetterman is being backed by the Justice Demecrats

I have been following the Justice Democrats and its predecessor for a while including the "brand new congress group" and other groups created by Cenk, Kyle Kulinksi and their ilk. I am on the Justice Democrat email list and I have even listened once or twice to the Justice Democrat podcast which is amusingly called "Just Us" democrats. The Justice Democrats emails are fun to laugh at and I love the hatred this group shows to the Democratic Party, establishment Democrats and best of all corporate democrats. The posts attacking the DCCC for raising money to elect real Democrats are really amusing.

I have been following number of posters on twitter who dislike the Justice Democrats including the poster in question. There are a large number posters on twitter who have issues with the concept of the Justice Democrat group wanting to take over the Democratic party and remake into their image. It seems that this poster is a regular democrat who does not want the Democratic Party to be taken over by the Justice Democrat group.


This poster is not the only person who has issues with the concept that the Justice Democrats want to take over the Democratic Party


Again the above posts are consistent with the hatred of the Democratic Party that I see on the almost daily emails that I get from the Justice Democrats.

If you want to learn more about the Justice Democrats just enter "Just Us Democrats" in the search function of twitter.

I am also on Fetterman's email list and he also seems to have issues with the mainstream Democratic party. I personally have always like Connor Lamb since he flipped a red district. Personally I am not going to support a candidate supported by the Justice Democrats if there is a real democrat in that race.

3. I Supported Lamb Financially From IN and Will Do So for His Senate Run

I personally don't care for Fetterman's "in your face" style of politics but that's just me.

5. I don't see him winning in the GE.

I noticed when someone endorsed by them loses they get really angry, threaten revenge for not letting one of theirs win. For example, it's ok for them to have high profile endorsements, dark pac money, etc. But if their opponent has high profile endorsements pac money somehow it's rigged. Why are they surprised that their opponents are actually running to win? I often see complaints saying "the establishment used their full force against us." Is that not what is suppose to happen in competitions?

7. They rarely get a candidate to the general election, like the recent Brown v Turner race in Ohio.

Turner ran as a Dem but I'm sure the Justice Dems were behind her.

Of course she lost, and now Brown is on to the general election in a deep blue district.

10. I am on the Justice Dm email list

The Justice Dems were heavily supporting her. There were constant pleas to give them money to fifty the DCCC, establishment democrats and corporate dr o rats. The hatred in these emails amused me

8. He already won statewide races with black voters after this happened

I'm guessing it would depend on how those running against him in the Primary do against him.
