As Dan Onorato continues to beat the drum on Tom Corbett and his comments on the unemployed with two new news conferences today, the campaign has also launched a website targeting the comments, called CluelessTom.com.
If you're visiting political sites like this one, you'll probably see ads for it like the one below.
Here's the Inquirer on Onorato's visit to Philly yesterday:
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato renewed his attacks on Republican rival Tom Corbett on Wednesday, contending Corbett had first impugned the motives of some jobless Pennsylvanians more than three months ago.
"Tom Corbett has said since March that he thinks Pennsylvanians would rather be unemployed than earning money for their families," Onorato said at a rally in Philadelphia that featured labor leaders and job-seekers.
The City Hall event was part of a campaign swing as Onorato, trailing in a recent poll, tried to capitalize on Corbett's comments last week.
Corbett, the attorney general, on Friday said he had heard from several Pennsylvania employers that some jobless people said they would only come back to work " 'when the unemployment runs out.' That's becoming a problem."
. . .The Inquirer's repeated attempts to reach Corbett for comment this week have gone unanswered.
UPDATE: The Onorato camp has scheduled its fifth straight day of news conferences statewide on the issue. The latest is in Lancaster:
LANCASTER: TOMORROW, July 16, 2010, Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato will hold a press conference to discuss the economic situation in Pennsylvania.
