Lentz Calls For Eachus Removal

PA2010.com is reporting that State Representative Bryan Lentz of Delaware County is calling for the removal of House Majority Leader Todd Eachus as head of the Democratic Caucus.

State Representative Bryan Lentz (D-Delaware) on Monday said it was time for House Majority Leader Todd Eachus to be removed as head of the Democratic Caucus, clearly positioning himself in the reform wing of the party as he seeks election to Congress next year.

A statement released by Lentz’s Harrisburg office and an accompanying letter his office said was sent to Eachus were both strongly worded in skipping past a request for resignation and going straight to removal.

“My experiences as an officer in the 82nd Airborne Division tell me that there are times when an entire chain of command must be relieved in order to restore confidence in an organization,” Lentz said. “That time has come for the House Democratic caucus. A cloud of corruption has hung over our Commonwealth for too long and we must take clear affirmative steps to regain the confidence of the citizens of Pennsylvania.

“The election of new leaders will show the people that our caucus is capable of self-correction and serious about cleaning up Harrisburg,” he added.
