Anti-Fracking Democrat Busted Using Online Sock Puppets

Let’s cut him some slack. He’s just speaking truthiness to power or something.

For the past several years, I have asked the tough questions few have been willing to ask to ensure natural gas drilling is done the safest way possible in Pennsylvania. My efforts have drawn the attention of multi-million dollar energy industry groups like Energy In Depth, who have published numerous misleading and personal attacks against me in an attempt to distract people from the real issues and discredit my character. These attacks have included anonymous or fictitious posts on various websites.

On occasion, I have exercised my First Amendment rights and responded in kind, which was an error in judgment that I regret. To be clear, I did not use government resources while posting comments on these sites.

What a dick. Stunningly, White was the lone vote against a law that would ban online sock puppets.

Last year, state Rep. Kathy Watson, R-Bucks, introduced a bill to make “online impersonation” a crime punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of $5,000.

As Melissa Daniels reported at the time, the bill was aimed at “cyber-bullying.” Though that might normally be a problem associated with schools and teenagers, perhaps it extends to members of the General Assembly as well.

The bill progressed from the House Judiciary Committee with a vote of 22-1 and was passed by the full House in October with a vote of 196-1.

On both occasions, White was the lone negative vote.

    I DO work for a Gas Drilling Co. Best job in the rust belt for a working man. Safest job I’ve had too. I was a lineman who bulged 4 discs when a dead tree fell on me. My work keeps those FAA mandated lights on, at the non operational windmills around Scranton, Wilkes-Barre.
