(Video features One PA activists during the 2020 election, not those involved in the shooting)
One PA is not just some small local group, it’s backed by the Soros Democracy Alliance and has benefited from sizable funding as part of a Democrat effort to keep Pennsylvania in the leftist column. Behind all the press releases though, One PA, like most Dem activist and political organization hires ‘foot soldiers’ to work the streets.
These ‘foot soldiers’ in major areas tend to be from the lowest of the low. That’s how things like this happen.
An argument between two Philadelphia political canvassers led to a deadly shooting late Monday afternoon, according to police.
Police told NBC10 a man, later identified as 46-year-old Eddie Brokenbough, was canvassing the neighborhood for a political campaign when he met with another campaign worker along the 2000 block of Church Lane around 4:11 p.m. The two men, who were both armed, then got into an argument which led to the other campaign worker pulling out a gun and shooting Brokenbough, police said.
Brokenbough was shot once in the left armpit. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 4:24 p.m.
Police said the campaign worker who shot Brokenbough had a valid permit to carry. That man was taken into custody and is cooperating with the investigation, according to police. No charges have been filed as police continue to investigate what led to the shooting and whether or not it was done in self-defense.
Maybe he can invoke ‘Stand Your Ground’.
Both men were working for One PA which sends lots of “thoughts and prayers”.
“Our hearts go out to our friends and partners at One PA, and all the canvassers who help make our democracy work. Love and solidarity at this terrible time,” PA Working Families also tweeted.
A spokesperson for One PA, a politically progressive nonprofit working “to make powerful changes that transform our communities,” said that Brokenbough worked for their organization.
Shocking that an organization of radical leftists supportive of police defunding would experience violence. One PA’s list of wins includes keeping police out of schools. Maybe the police should be inside One PA meetings to avoid further violence. It may also be a good idea to ban One PA’s canvassing by violent criminals.
… if it only saves one life.
