Democrats’ U.S. Senate nominee in Pennsylvania, John Fetterman, lived off of a yearly allowance as high as five figures thanks to his parents. This allowance went well into his late fourties.
The Daily Wire reports:
The lieutenant governor — who bills himself as a progressive friend of the working class — survived for his 13-year tenure as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, thanks to his parents’ money. Fetterman, age 52, was elected in 2006 and left the position in 2019 after being elected to his current position. In 2015 alone, his parents gave him $54,000, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. As mayor, Fetterman received a $1,800 salary. For his part, Fetterman has stated that his family’s generosity allowed him to serve the public.
“John Fetterman is not who he seems to be. He is a sheep in wolf’s clothing,” David Urban, a Pennsylvania Republican strategist, told the Inquirer. “Nobody’s ever laid a glove on him.”
In reaction to the story, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) tweeted, “Fetterman’s problem isn’t that he’s a lazy socialist who lived off his parents until he was *50.* His problem is he supports 100% of Biden’s policies that caused inflation & record high gas.”
The lieutenant governor also purchased a residency from his sister for just $1. His sister first purchased the loft for $70,000, The Inquirer revealed.
