The state Democratic Party is calling on Republican Gov.-elect Tom Corbett to remove Ana Puig, the co-chair of a group called the Kitchen Table Patriots, from his 400-plus member transition team for making what it calls “hateful, extreme and inflammatory” comments about President Barack Obama.
The Pennsylvania Democratic Party says Puig, in speeches made across the country, has argued that Obama is a Marxist dictator, claimed the “left wing” was in alliance with radical Islam and that Obama was using a Communist agenda to implement a religious agenda, implied to be an Islamic agenda.
Corbett announced on Tuesday that Puig would be a member of the transition team’s education committee.
“Tom Corbett should be ashamed of naming an individual with a history of hateful, extreme and inflammatory speech to his transition team,” Mark Nicastre, a party spokesman, said in a statement this morning. “Tom Corbett’s decision to include Ana Puig on his transition team raises significant questions about his judgment. Tom Corbett should immediately remove Ana Puig from his transition team and conduct a throughout audit of his team to provide assurances to the people of Pennsylvania that the other members of his transition team are fit to serve the state.”
