Democrat Pennsylvania State Rep Wins Reelection Despite Being Dead
Meanwhile in Pennsylvania…
A Democrat Pennsylvania State Rep. won his reelection despite being dead.
Anthony DeLuca died on October 9 after a battle with lymphoma.
A special election will be held to fill Anthony DeLuca’s seat.
Some folks commenting that the voters here were oblivious. Some certainly were. But for others, they likely preferred the idea of a special election over electing the third-party candidate on the ballot

The Pennsylvania House Democrats praised voters for reelecting a dead guy.
“While we’re incredibly saddened by the loss of Representative Tony DeLuca, we are proud to see the voters to continue to show their confidence in him and his commitment to Democratic values by re-electing him posthumously. A special election will follow soon.”
Fox News reported:
A Pennsylvania state representative who died last month was reelected during the midterm elections, reports say.
Democrat Anthony “Tony” DeLuca died Oct. 9 “after a brief battle with lymphoma, a disease he twice previously beat. He was 85,” the Pennsylvania House Democratic Caucus wrote.
DeLuca was Pennsylvania’s longest-serving state rep, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
DeLuca’s opponent, Green Party challenger Queonia “Zarah” Livingston, reportedly ran on a decidedly left-wing platform, putting her three main priorities on her website as “environmental justice,” “ending the war on drugs,” and “reducing gun violence.”
DeLuca was a resident of Penn Hills for over 60 years. He got his start in politics serving on the Penn Hills Government Study Commission, then five years as a Penn Hills Councilman, followed by two years as Penn Hills Deputy Mayor before running for his legislative seat and defeating the Republican incumbent.
Coming to you from the same people who voted for John Fetterman, a man with brain damage who lived off mommy and daddy until he was 50.
