Pennsylvania’s 2022 U.S. Senate race is a disaster.
The GOP candidate is WEF-crony Dr. Mehmet Oz.
The Democrat candidate is Pennsylvania’s current Lt. Governor, John Fetterman.
A recent video surfaced of Fetterman advocating for “safe injection sites.”
“I think it’s important that we as a society have all the options on the table, including needle exchange…” Fetterman said.
“And even safe injection sites that are being considered like, say, in Philadelphia.”
“I’ll never forget the meeting that I had down at the DSCC where they, you know, evaluate you and your campaign and your candidacy. And one of the things that I kept talking about was the opioid crisis. And they’re just like, wait a second, what are you talking about? Like you want to legalize heroin!” Fetterman added.
Fetterman’s comments were reportedly during an interview with Aaron Watson on 1/24/2018.
A recent video of Fetterman saying he wants to release “one-third” of the prison population also just surfaced.

Oz had already made the claim in a tweet last month, leading to a PolitiFact fact check on July 21, which determined it to be “Mostly False.” The outlet’s Tom Kertscher asserted that “we did not find an instance of Fetterman calling for the release of one-third of dangerous criminals.”
But a clip that Fox News brought to light on Wednesday shows Fetterman agreeing that such a move would not make Pennsylvanians “any less” safe than they are with convicted criminals behind bars.
Fetterman said on a zoom call, apparently referring to John Wetzel, the state’s former corrections secretary:
I was on a panel with Secretary [John] Wetzel earlier before the pandemic hit, and he said something remarkable that I agree with. He said, ‘We could reduce our prison population by a third and not make anyone less safe in Pennsylvania, and that’s a profound statement’.
Fetterman spoke at a campaign event in Erie, Pennsylvania last week.
He had difficulty speaking after having a stroke in May.
