U.S. REP. Allyson Schwartz, one of seven candidates in the May 20 Democratic primary election for governor, quickly deleted a tweet and gave a political donation to charity after 10 members of Ironworkers Local 401 were indicted yesterday.
Schwartz on Dec. 4 had tweeted:
"I've always been proud to stand with the Ironworkers and am honored to have the endorsement of Local 401."
That tweet ran with a quote from Local 401 business manager Joseph Dougherty praising Schwartz "because she has consistently set out innovative solutions . . . that show she understands the needs of working families across the state."
