Harrisburg, PA – In a motion recently filed by Timothy Rowbottom against the senior advisor to Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, Karl Singleton has been named in a $12,000 civil suit for threatening life of the Mayor’s constituent.
In a written statement by the plaintiff, it has be alleged that on May 09, 2017, around 9 p.m., the defendant, Mr. Singleton threatened the man and alluded to knowing his home address. This incident occurred in the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel during the 2017 Mayoral debate. Singleton and Rowbottom were both in attendance at the debate event that took place that evening in the 2nd floor Ballroom.
The plaintiff believes this was a politically motivated threat.
Sean M GuayThe ‘Resistance Movement’ emulates the tactics of black bloc, and has aligned with the terrorist of AntiFA. It is a threat to American freedom.
Such a shame that so-called citizens of Harrisburg would display pride in being aggressively disruptive.
Carrie FowlerIf you think the resistance movement is a threat to American freedoms, then you don’t understand how this country was built.
Sean M GuayThis country was not built by aligning with terrorist.
Carrie FowlerWhat do you think the monarchy thought of our founding fathers? You need a history lesson.
Robert BrandtSeriously Carrie Fowler, did you just compare our founding fathers to ANTIFA?? LMFAO!! And I saw a pic you posted awhile back with you supporting ANTIFA so spin more spin doctor.
Sean M Guay:You all (the resistance) missed that while you were busy sympathizing with AntiFA, spreading hatred about America and our President.
Carrie Fowler: I will spread hatred about and for Trump till the day I take my last breath. He does not represent me or 58% of this country. He is a national embarrassment.
Amy Thomas: NJ DHS listed AntiFa as domestic terrorists. Aligning with them when your seeking a position in the public school system board…what message does that send to the children, their families and the tax payers? Fine, you don’t like Trump but to associate with domestic terrorists? Wow
Sean M Guay:AntiFA assaulted a police horse, harassed civilians and police in the street around 3rd and Forester, blocked traffic and sprayed a chemical mixture at police in Harrisburg on June 10.
Carrie Fowler, you are a current school board director elect, and as a ‘leader’ in this community, the citizens of Harrisburg must look to you for guidance.
Will you publicly condemn the violent activities of AntiFA and any person associated with them?
Amy Thomas Carrie Fowler, Do you condemn AntiFa? Simple question.
Carrie Fowler: I do support them (AntiFA) for their efforts to stand against hate. Am I a member? No. On that Saturday (June 10) in question Antifa were the only ones protecting the hate from walking down our streets and there was absolutely NO violence. Do I stand by everything they do ? No.
I am not tolerant of Trump and his hate. Not for one minute. I will expose him every chance I get. I will call him out every chance I get
Now have fun twisting my words to fit your agenda. I put action behind my words. I make mistakes just like everyone else, but when I do I admit them, learn from them and move on a better person.
Brittney Parker:Carrie Fowler I think it’s pretty interesting you say you will never tolerate hate, and then a few posts above this one you say you will spread hate for Trump till you take your last breath.
Of course, we all know you’re ok with facism and hatred as long as it’s someone or something you disagree with, am I right?
I don’t even like Trump, haha, I didn’t vote for him and left the GOP over it. But trying to claim the moral high ground on tolerance, diversity, and love while bragging about spreading hatred is pretty far out.
Apparently, Carrie Fowler was busy sympathizing with Antifa members, and while she was caught up in passionately spreading hatred of America and our President, she conveniently missed all the relevant national news about the violence and hatred that was caused by Antifa in Harrisburg on June 10, 2017. Recently, Fowler has become the Democratic mascot, making appearances on behalf of the party at every protest cause in the Pennsylvania State Capital.
Direct Link to the posting that was deleted (we have all screen shots) as soon as the connection to Siennick and AntiFA was established:
Brown asks the reader if an appointed (political friend) board member should have the ability to decide what goes on in a neighborhood where they don’t live in, or visit often.
Proving his case is a recent proposal by Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, where he insisted that council pass resolution (6/6/17) to give control of two new code office appeals board slots to people from outside of the city.
Council pushed back very hard against this, and claimed it was outrageous to believe that the city has no talent, to which the mayor maintained was the case.
One council member asked the mayor why we are not advertising these two open seats, instead of giving them out to friends of the mayor to push a bizarre codes agenda.
That agenda has been discussed at length in central Allison Hill lately, as rumors of a class action lawsuit surface, whose members are being represented by the same attorney that successfully represented the Third Street Cafe against the mayor’s agenda.
Council president Wanda Williams told the mayor that a city resident (who was in the meeting) had submitted her resume in an effort to be considered for a certain board position, to which the mayor arrogantly asked: “Oh, so I’m just supposed to appoint ‘said person’?”
This negative tone comes just one week after the mayor asked this same city resident, in a personal meeting, how she could help him heal the divide in Harrisburg, between the city and its citizens.
The city resident’s response was that the only way to heal the divide is to atone for what you’ve done. To own up to your own actions that contributed to the divide.
It is important as city residents that we don’t allow the mayor to subvert our citizens rights by continuing to outsource control.
Harrisburg, PA – As reported by The Washington Post in 2008, the idea of a racial divide in the City of Harrisburg is not new to the election cycle, locally. In fact, the tense racial history of this city goes back for centuries.
Currently, in the aftermath of a local election which featured some smear campaigns, and became chippy at times, the incumbent Mayor Papenfuse has been reelected as the Democratic nominee for the upcoming general election, this fall. Now, ‘racial divide’ has resurfaced as an issue that has not yet found resolve in the fair city.
In a post-election interview, Mayoral challenger Lewis Butts issued a statement on his willingness to work with Papenfuse on the racial divide, and the need to make sure that all cultures are embraced:
From the follow-up commentary of the video, respondents describe a variety of opinions. One person said:
All cultures are not at a disadvantage, but black folk issues cannot be clumped with everyone else issues. We need to focus strictly on our own issues as black folk.
Of Papenfuse, another citizen mentioned:
[Papenfuse] needs a visionary, such as Lewis Butts, in his ear.
Of Butts, recent School Board Director elect, Carrie Fowler said:
Lewis Butts deserves a seat in [Papenfuse’s] administration. Harrisburg and it’s citizens would profit from his vision.
At a local polling center, city resident Beau Brown takes direct action towards unity, on the day of the election. Brown, and Tim Rowbottom are pictured here with the team of Gloria Martin-Roberts, an opposing challenger:
Many of us had a great time running from poll to poll yesterday! While there was some mild tension (kind of fun), there was a lot of collective love for Harrisburg City.
Many of the Jennie Jenkins team had very great interactions, and discussions with members of the Gloria Martin-Roberts team while visiting these polls.
Mr. Eric R. Papenfuse – respectfully sir – this is how you heal divides. Just go talk to each other.
In another perspective on race, local BLM activist Katherine Lugaro, who is not happy about Papenfuse being reelected, also recently posted her disapproval of Sheriff David Clark joining forces with President Trump:
Exclusively for Harrisburg100, Lugaro offers a very in depth perspective on the controversy surrounding Sheriff David Clark:
Sheriff Clarke is a fascist that launched his career on Fox News as a self hating- black hating contributor. This is a trend at Fox, where they will pay/hire a self hating black gov’t official to come smear Black Lives Matter. Sheriff Clarke’s black hate reminds me of the old “Is WE sick boss” house negro, who will lay his life down for his white master and sell his fellow black slaves down the river. It’s the sickness of the House Negro, who runs the plantation and functions on the plantation as a free man…why would he want to upset the apple cart? Clarke is a fitting addition to the Trump Administration. No doubt about it…Clarke validates all the stereotypes held by rich white males in this country…why wouldn’t they love him? The list of reasons of why Clarke is a gross and telling pick for the Trump Administration goes on and on…. starting with Clarke seriously claiming that Black Lives Matter is going to work with ISIS to take over the country.
Harrisburg, PA – Mayor Eric Shlapenfuse is living every child’s dream: More ice cream.
According to an exclusive interview with Harrisburg100, Shlapenfuse’s City Hall staff has settled into Shlaps routine and know his desires, sometimes before he does. Staffer and Chief Propagandist Bruce P. Weber knows first hand about the excessive waste of Papenfuse.
For example: Shlapenfuse takes two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, Harrisburg100 reported, while everyone else around the table gets just one.
Shlap: Pennlive and Civil War Museum ban ‘could be my fault’
In the interview published Thursday, Shlap also expanded on his view of The West Shore Boys stalking him during the 2017 Trump visit to Harrisburg, refuted reports that he is unhappy with his current Director of Finance & Budget, and took a level of blame for his administrations failed $200,000 comprehensive plan.
But, more than anything, Shlap gave Harrisburg100 a window into some of the oddities that make his City Hall unlike any in modern history, including the traits that make Shlap tick.
Here are some illuminating takeaways from the interview:
Business at any cost
Shlap casts himself throughout the interview as Harrisburg’s businessman, someone who is wasting as much federal grant tax dollars as possible to line the pockets of his friends, and create the illusion that he is rebuilding Allison Hill.
The focus of the interview extends to faulty FBI crime statistics, that are due to the dysfunctional computer system in the Harrisburg Police Department.
Harrisburg100 reported that Shlap brought up how he is trying to champion the cause of removing illegal firearms from the mean streets of the warzone, in Harrisburg, PA.
Report: Shlap blames self for ruining the relationship of the city with the Civil War Museum
‘It is 100% my fault’
Shlap rarely takes blame, and throughout the 2017 Mayoral campaign he said he rarely, if ever, apologizes.
But during his interview with Harrisburg100, Shlap took responsibility — sort of — for the major failures of his administration.
“It is 100% my fault,” he said. “I don’t want to necessarily take the blame, but it is my inability to engage with the real citizens of Harrisburg that has been the detriment of this administration.”
“I fully think apologizing is a great thing, especially considering that I am dead wrong,” Shlap told Kristen Vordell in September 2016 PennFake Interview. “I will absolutely apologize sometime in the distant future if I’m ever wrong.”
Shlap accuses James Ellison of misrepresenting him on facebook
A level of introspection
Shlap, carrying on the tenor of his vicious 2017 campaign, has made Harrisburg a more acrimonious place. James Ellison, appalled by his negative campaigning, has grown more fearful, more vocal and more disgusted. Shlap has kept his foot on the gas, too, by publicly calling out Ellison in the Mayoral Debate, for his recent facebook activity.
But during the Harrisburg100 interview, as the dinner was wrapping up, Shlap appeared to have a moment of introspection.
“It never made sense to me, the level of animosity,” Shlap said. “All we want to do is squander tax dollars, we want to raises taxes and parking rates, we want to steal midtown property for our personal gain, while we forget about the rest of the city, and we won’t worry about fixing education in Harrisburg.”
Shlap, notably, at times during the 2017 campaign defended his midtown establishment and the well paid spouses of his good friends who are owed favors, and attacked a local attorney who is the treasurer of his opponents campaign. More recently, he cast Pennlive reporting as the “enemy of the city.”
Harrisburg, PA – In the days leading up to the primary election for our local city government, the Mayoral candidates debate for a third and final time.
Consistently at the debates, and through their public speaking, the calm patience and logical reasoning of the less experienced candidates has been on display. It is the elder city politicians who have shown the truth about their ill-temperament, and inability to collaborate towards the good of the city. These attitudes of the old guard politicians in Harrisburg have led to gridlock, and the dysfunction of our city government.
For the voters of Harrisburg, it is time to move on from these negative campaigners, and look to the new up-and-coming candidates, who represent the political movement that is underway in our fair city.
Lewis Butts Jr., Anthony Harrell, and Jennie Jenkins represent the voices of Harrisburg citizens that have been silenced for too long.
In the opening minuets of the final Mayoral Debate, our so-called ‘leaders’ fight on stage while squabbling over Facebook postings, they debate who is more old guard, and discuss Papenfuse’s Midtown establishment:
Through thelofty romantic ideas, and extravagantly chivalrous action of Lewis Butts in these debates, and his public interviews, he continues to display his personal honor, generosity, courtesy, as well as his genuine passion for the City of Harrisburg.
Here, Butts chimes in on the ill-temperament of the experienced candidates, as they squabble over their past differences. He makes a huge point about the need to maintain civility, to enable the new candidates discussion about the future potential of Harrisburg:
Jennie Jenkins explains the problem of Harrisburg’s flawed crime reporting to the FBI. As it turns out, the ‘reduction‘ in city crime coincides with the implementation of the new computer system that has reduced the ability of the officers to properly complete police reports. These incorrectly reported statistics have been used by Mayor Papenfuse to tout his administration’s success in reducing crime within Harrisburg.
This claim of reduced city crime statistics is widely disputed by the actual experiences of Harrisburg residents. The vast inconsistencies that exist between citizen reporting, versus police reporting of crime incidents, have recently come to light:
Papenfuse is “proud to lead the resistance” against the leader of the free world, while pitting Harrisburg at ground zero in his bosses war on Republicans:
Gloria Martin-Roberts explains her lack of knowledge regarding the major city failure of the Harrisburg Incinerator Debacle that took place under her watch, while leading city council.
Papenfuse rebuts her claims of ignorance, and admits that he regrets his controversial Pennlive ban:
New Video Coming Soon: Lewis Butts Calls Out PennLive for their heavily biased journalism, and their remarks about his “Quixotic bid for mayor.”
Update: In a facebook posting today, as for the fate of the failed attempt by our current city administration to produce a completed Comprehensive Plan ($200,000 wasted), Beau Brown updates the city on the efforts of Mayoral Candidate Jennie Jenkins to make right the lack of due diligence by Papenfuse and his out-of-town associates.
Jenkins plans to work with the contracted Engineer to complete the plan, and to keep the city out of court.
