In a Facebook post on Thursday, Mayor Tom Riel endorsed Phil Clabaugh in the race for McKean County District Attorney.
He contends that current DA Stephanie Vettenberg-Shaffer picks the cases she thinks she can win to artificially inflate her performance record.
Today, Vettenberg-Shaffer got the endorsement of Zippo owner George Duke who spoke about her integrity.
Duke said this is his personal endorsement of the DA.
You can read Duke’s complete statement below Riel’s.
Today, Riel said, “Wow! To think that the current DA’s campaign adviser Greg Henry first asked me to publicly endorse her on February 27th, the very day the Kane mayor endorsed her opponent. How ironic!”
