Over the weekend, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. and Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman campaigned with another George Soros-backed district attorney amid increased criticism of his record on crime as chairman of the state’s Board of Pardons.
On Saturday, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer joined Fetterman at a rally at Nether Providence Elementary School in Wallingford, and proceeded to praise the Democratic Party’s track record on crime and Fetterman’s liberal attitude to clemency.
He adds a defense of Fetterman’s work on the Board of Pardons. “What John has done is have the audacity to believe something I was taught by the Sisters of Mercy when I grew up here and went to St. Dennis, we’re all God’s childrens and we’re all sinners.” https://t.co/rDbY3Vklca

Stollsteimer is an extreme gun-control advocate who has advocated for gun buybacks and the prohibition of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Stollsteimer, however claimed that he does not favor defunding the police but rather supports working with communities and police to find answers to gun violence.
Fetterman’s weekend appearance with Stollsteimer comes after the lieutenant governor was chastised for promoting another Soros-backed district attorney, the radical Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner.
Fetterman previously collaborated with Krasner to gain the release of Dennis and Lee Horton, two brothers convicted of murder who now work for Fetterman’s campaign.
Krasner is presently battling an impeachment probe sponsored by Pennsylvania House Republicans for alleged “dereliction of duty” in addressing Philadelphia’s crime, which has increased under his tenure.
Soros and his Open Society Foundation have thrown millions of dollars into district attorney elections around the country in an effort to promote far-left criminal justice reform ideas.
Mehmet Oz, Fetterman’s Republican opponent, has slammed Fetterman for his support for Krasner and his time on the Board of Pardons.
During his tenure on the board, Fetterman was instrumental in the release of scores of murders.
He was the lone vote in an unsuccessful attempt to release Alexis Rodriguez, who is serving a life sentence in Dallas after being one of five accused convicted of killing shooting a police officer’s 17-year-old son with a baseball bat.
Last year, Fetterman was also the lone vote in an unsuccessful request to shorten the sentence of John David Brookins, who was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for murdering his girlfriend’s mother with a pair of sabers in 1990.
The race in Pennsylvania is currently neck and neck, with Oz having gained on Fetterman significantly in past few weeks according to recent polling.
