Anyone trying to clean up anything near the old Tube City brickworks, any neighborhood at all, deserves a vote.
And has more balls than any man on any ticket out there.

I'm curious - if his right arm date tattoos are such an important reminder to him, why are they nearly 3 years out of date?

Don't get me wrong, I've already donated to him and want to see him in the Senate. But it does seem odd.

He'll still get labeled as an elitist.  He's clearly too up his own ass to have inked a naked virgin straddling a crucifix that says 'mom' on his chest.

To be honest IDGAF. Nothing personal, I just figured he had his own reasons and that's not my business. Since it doesn't affect me, or his job AFAIK, if he has tattoos I don't see why it would matter.

Because he left being mayor of Braddock after 2018 to become the Lt. Governor of PA. He states in the article that there is one more date that needs to be added (June 2018) but he hasn't the chance, but anything after his resignation wouldn't be there because he wasn't mayor. That's also why there isn't any date before 2006.

I said it before and I'll say it again. Tattoos are low class and indicative of a criminal or at least antisocial mindset. They never look good and I lose a lot of respect for someone when they say they have one. I have noticed however, that this is a much easier opinion to have when I am posting anonymously on the internet and not, say, around the PA Lieutenant Governor.

And here I was thinking I couldn't like this guy any more than I already did.

Silly me.

I want this guy to win so bad.

He became Lt. Gov. of PA and may be the first person to ever take the part seriously.  It's a traditionally ceremonial role.  He actually actually works it.  He can right up the tats any damn time he wants.  No other politician here would bother showing that respect.

Tattoos are better when they are meaningful and personal and not this generic tribal wannabe Goldberg bullshiat the lift bros are always getting or this "Live Love Laugh" bullshiat with a feather and infinity loop that every 35 year old mom seems to need on their foot.

Hoping he gets the nomination and can fight off Republicans who will most certainly feign outrage over the 2013 jogger incident. With his hands-on approach to mayoral duties, he will have certainly locked up the Mike Haggar fans demographic, at least.

Well it is in Pennsylvania. Like Jubal asked Larry, "What in God's name can a man find to do at night in Philadelphia?" I assume where Fetterman is from is at least as bad.

Hmm. Fascinating.

So did my criminal or antisocial mindset cause me to get the tattoos or did the tattoos cause me to become criminal or antisocial?

Most people with tats can't wait to take their shirts off so you can see them.

Chicken and the egg I suppose. The farker status definitely raises the antisocial red flag through.

I like this guy - he's not my Lt. Governor - but I think every article, or TV piece, I've read/seen about him talks about the significance of his tattoos.

Actually, it appeared to be more of a PSA for Big Brothers/Big Sisters, had you clicked Read More. I don't know why they put that below the fold, as it were, but the personal stuff seemed to be background for the rest.

In any case, he certainly has my vote.
