WEST WHITELAND — On the campaign trail, politicians like to kiss enough babies, make enough promises, and shake enough hands to leave audiences cheering.
So Ivan Itkin did not expect the response he got from Katherine and Enrico Mazza after making an Oct. 8 stump speech at their West Whiteland home.
The Mazzas were infuriated that Itkin, the Democratic challenger to Gov. Ridge, used their porch without permission.
``In no way, shape or form would we have allowed a Democrat to hold a press conference on our porch,'' said Katherine Mazza, adding that she and her husband were registered Republicans. ``If you can't take care of somebody's basic, basic rights, how are you supposed to govern an entire state?''
