Major state newspapers revealed Republican state Rep. Garth Everett is passing the hat to his colleagues, pressing them to contribute to the jail account of multiple felon and former General Assembly member Brett Feese. It was additionally noted that Everett was one of the shameless individuals that afforded a standing ovation to disgraced multiple felon H. William DeWeese as he triumphantly and without apology bid farewell to his House colleagues a short while before being carted off to prison.
At his website, Rep. Everett has a photograph of himself with children from an elementary school within his district during a school trip to the state capitol. The caption notes that Everett met with the students, their teachers, and chaperones. I wonder if he explained to them the "need" to cozy up to corrupt figures and whether he was afforded respect and deference by those that are aware of his unseemly actions.
