Democrat Tony DeLuca Died in October – Pennsylvania Elected Him Anyway

In the continuing saga of the midterm elections, Democrats in Pennsylvania actually elected a dead guy last night. It is unclear whether they were oblivious to the fact Democrat State Rep Tony DeLuca died in October, or they were just choosing to have a special election that didn’t have a third party candidate in it.

“While we’re incredibly saddened by the loss of Representative Tony DeLuca, we are proud to see the voters to continue to show their confidence in him and his commitment to Democratic values by re-electing him posthumously. A special election will follow soon.” Pennsylvania House Democrats

Deluca died on October 9 after a battle with lymphoma. He was 85,  and the longest serving Representative in the Pennsylvania legislature.

The district Mr DeLuca represented was in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. That County faces three special elections that had “safe Democrat seats” — the Deluca seat, Summer Lee is resigning to join Congress, and Austin Davis is resigning to become Lt Governor, according to reporter Charlie Wolfson. Of course, Mr. Wolfson didn’t mention the Republicans who would be in the race because they are considered “safe” as blue seats.

The third party candidate in the race was Green Party candidate Queonia “Zarah” Livingston. So far left she fell off the planet – according to Fox her priorities were “environmental justice,” “ending the war on drugs,” and “reducing gun violence.” (What IS “environmental justice”anyway?  Justice is justice and has nothing to do with the environment or even climate change. But I digress.)

DeLuca was a resident of Penn Hills for over 60 years. He got his start in politics serving on the Penn Hills Government Study Commission, then five years as a Penn Hills Councilman, followed by two years as Penn Hills Deputy Mayor before running for his legislative seat and defeating the Republican incumbent.
He graduated from Westinghouse High School and the Community College of Allegheny County. He had four children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. In addition to his late wife, he was preceded in death by his brother Larry and his parents. Fox News

So farewell to deceased Tony Deluca, and hello to another special election in Allegheny County. Were those voters dumb as a box of rocks or smart to move the election to a special one? I vote this was the better choice.
