A Leading Contender for PA Governor Was Born in Kenya

Kenya: Training ground for all our most successful political leaders. Former Rendell DEP Secretary John Hanger has just been profiled in the Inky, where it was revealed that–gasp!–he was born in Kenya. (“Hanger was born in Kenya, immigrated to the United States from Ireland at age 12 in 1970, and became an American citizen in 1977.”) In all seriousness, this man actually was born in Kenya. Which means the inevitable truthers will have to pretend he was actually born in America and is lying about his birthplace to secure Pennsylvania’s communist/anti-colonialist vote.
