‘We Got Wolf On The Ropes’: Pa. Lawmaker Defies Gov. Tom Wolf’s Stay-At-Home Order After Organizing And Attending Meeting With 150 People
YORK COUNTY (AP) — A Pennsylvania state lawmaker defied Gov. Tom Wolf’s statewide stay-at-home order when he organized and attended a meeting with more than 150 others.
Rep. Mike Jones, a first-term Republican who criticized Wolf in his speech to attendees, said the meeting was meant to gauge the business community’s feelings about reopening.
“I think we got Wolf on the ropes,” Jones said, according to the York Daily Record. “The last 48 hours has been extremely encouraging. It’s just like a boxing match. It’s time to knock him out. Because when you call his bluff and you fight, they cave. They don’t have the horses. They don’t have the soldiers. They don’t have the guts. … The bark is way, way worse than the bite.”
