Aaron Bernstine’s Weird Obsession with the Joe Paterno Statue
Rep. Aaron Bernstine (R-Butler/Beaver/Lawrence) is attempting to force Penn State University to provide information regarding the location and condition of the Joe Paterno statue by tying it as an amendment to Senate Bill 1283, which would provide the school’s funding for the fiscal year. via Penn Live
Bernstine’s amendment would require Penn State to report to the House and Senate the location and the method of storage and protection of the statue. Penn State would be required to produce the report and post it to the school’s website in order to receive its annual funding.
Give me a fucking break, man.
We can add this to the list of things that absolutely no one cares about, but for whatever reason, elected politicians continue to focus on instead of the real issues at hand. I doubt anyone that goes to Penn State even cares about the statue. Why would they?
Now, we have this moron withholding school funding because the university won’t post on their website the location and method of storage? Outside of this Bernstine guy being a total creep for even caring about this in the first place, this sounds like an abuse of power and he, along with anyone who voted for him to represent the state of Pennsylvania should be embarrassed.
I can’t stand politicians in general, then these types of stories pop up and its amazing that more people aren’t taking a step back and asking what the hell is going on? It’s not like Bernstine ran on finding the Paterno statue or withholding funding. Literally no one asked for this and now you have some cultist Penn State alumni doing his own thing and fucking shit up for everyone else.
Update: This guy is a total lunatic.
On video trying to get a kid to play “fuck, marry, kill” huh? No wonder he loves Joe Pa so much.
