A few days ago, Reuters broke a story about Doug Mastriano, the conservative Republican aspirant for the Pennsylvania governor's race. The New York Times saw it fit to ask Maggie Astor from its National Desk to write a piece. CNN, Business Insider, and the Philadelphia Inquirer all piled on.
Mastriano's offense was that he posed for a faculty photo at the Army War College, where he worked in 2014, in a Confederate uniform. Mastriano, who came into the Left's crosshairs because he questioned numerous state officials about their conduct during the 2020 election, won the Republican nomination in the summer to challenge Democrat Joe Shapiro. Worse, he had won Trump's endorsement.
