Congressman Mike Kelly does not like it when he is forced to face his abysmal record on supporting working Pennsylvanians — he has a 25% lifetime rating from the AFL-CIO. During a debate for the special election in HD-11 yesterday, audience member Mike Kelly did not like hearing his anti-labor record brought to light for the public record, so he injected himself into the debate with an outburst unbecoming of a congressman.
“Pennsylvania’s workers deserve representatives who will stand up for them in DC and in Harrisburg. They deserve representatives who will listen to their needs,” said Brandon Cwalina, spokesperson for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “Mike Kelly’s voting record shows us who he really is. Time and time again his votes illustrate that he is not in office to help Pennsylvania’s working men and women.”

To which Doctor, a member of UAW Local 3303, directly lashed out. “From the experiences of our officers, when they came to visit Mike Kelly in D.C., we are not treated with friendship and openness.”
Upon hearing that point, U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, R-16th, spoke up from the crowd. Mustello has worked for Kelly for years and is on leave for this race.
“No way,” Kelly shouted.
