WASHINGTON (AP) – The State Department released on Wednesday 6,300 additional pages of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails, covering a period when U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden and the Arab Spring rocked American diplomacy. The release is the latest in the agency’s rolling production of emails chronicling Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state and canvasses the major U.S.
As the PA GOP’s Judicial Director, I’ve had the opportunity to travel across Pennsylvania with our five statewide judicial candidates, and with five weeks to go before Election Day, I thought I’d share why I believe they’d make terrific jurists on our statewide courts.
I’d like to begin with Paul Lalley, our Party’s nominee for the open seat on the Commonwealth Court.
A native of Montgomery County, Paul grew up knowing he wanted to make a difference. That’s why Paul decided to pursue a career in the law.
After graduating from La Salle College High School in 1989, Paul attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 1993. Paul went on to obtain his law degree from the Dickinson School of Law in 1996.
Paul focuses his practice on labor and employment issues for municipal and public school clients as an attorney with Campbell Durrant Beatty Palombo & Miller, P.C. in Pittsburgh.
One of his proudest achievements was when Allegheny County taxpayers were granted a one-year delay in the implementation of new property tax assessments after Paul persuaded the trial court that taxpayers needed time to challenge their assessments.
In recommending his candidacy for the Commonwealth Court, the Pennsylvania Bar Association noted that Paul’s “writing skills are held in high regard, particularly his ability to clearly explain complex legal issues.”
“Politics, the crooked timber of our communal lives, dominates everything because, in the end, everything – high and low and, most especially, high – lives or dies by politics. You can have the most advanced and efflorescent of cultures. Get your politics wrong, however, and everything stands to be swept away.
First, Hillary Clinton cashed in on Keystone pipeline backers by acting like she might support the pipeline. Then she needed the left badly enough to prematurely reveal her true position. She tried to blame her games on Obama and Kerry, even though they were playing the same game she was.
“We have done everything we could, in response to the State Department asking us to do this review because they asked all the former secretaries. And the reason they asked, Chuck, is they found gaps in the record keeping.” – Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, in an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sept.
