Jeremiah Milligan is one of this campaign’s youngest volunteers to date -- but even though he won’t be able to vote on November 4, the 16-year-old high school junior is working hard to get the word out about electing Tom Wolf in his Philadelphia community.
Jeremiah’s role in the campaign is unique. He works closely with the campaign’s political department in Philadelphia providing administrative and advance support during events, such as last week’s event with First Lady Michelle Obama.
This is just the latest misstep in a string of desperate and dishonest attacks from a campaign that has consistently refused to tell the truth. In a previous ad titled “Toy Story,” FactCheck.org said that the ad should be called “Tall Story” for its many deceptions, and in another fact check, Corbett was called out specifically for being less than honest about job creation under his administration.
Governor Corbett’s dishonest ads are nothing more than an attempt to distract Pennsylvanians from his $1 billion education funding cut and an economy that sunk from 9th to 47th in job creation under his watch. Rather than explain himself to the voters, Corbett has time and again chosen to falsely attack Tom Wolf.

Three weeks after making a modest donation to Tom Wolf’s campaign for governor, my husband and I were on our way to Mount Wolf to meet Tom and to attend a backyard barbecue at his home. As soon as we got there, we were taken into the backyard to meet Mr. Wolf and his wife, Frances. Tom took us into his home and showed us his study as he and my husband discussed The Bully Pulpit and other books both had read and enjoyed.
We talked about what we did and where we lived, and Tom shared some stories about his wife’s paintings and his daughters. We made our way back outside as other guests arrived -- neighbors and other prize winners -- in all about 20 people.
