People may remember that back in July a report came out asking what role Democratic candidate John Callahan (mayor of Bethlehem, PA) had in the investigation of a 2007 Superbowl weekend car accident involving Callahan’s brother-in-law Dino Cantelmi. The accident involved Cantelmi going down the wrong way on a one-way street and smacking into a police cruiser, sending the patrolman in it to the hospital; alcohol was involved, as was a ‘female companion.’ No sobriety check at the station, no felony charges, no follow-up investigation; and apparently it took three years to finally get the incident report and photos of the event.
But they are available now, and somebody put a video in together in response, and I got my hands on it:
Now, it may not seem nice to ask whether the current Democratic candidate for PA-15 is involved in any of this; but it’s certainly fair. I’m pretty sure that if I flipped my female companion’s car after smacking into a police cruiser because I was going the wrong way on an one-way street during Superbowl weekend, and I put a cop in the hospital, and I had been drinking… well. I’d need a mayor brother-in-law to make that go away.
And let’s not pretend that stuff like that doesn’t happen all the time, all right? It does; but a lot of times it happens and the people that might be involved don’t later run for federal office.

Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief.
