“I’m happy that he’s going back home to his family,” Democrat US Senate candidate John Fetterman (PA) told the media about his vote of support for the release of Charles “Zeke” Goldblum while acting as Pennsylvania’s Lt. Governor.

Goldblum was sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted of first-degree murder for killing a man with garden shears in a parking garage in Pittsburgh, PA.

According to the Washington Free Beacon – Goldblum was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1976 killing of George Wilhelm as part of an insurance fraud cover-up. According to prosecutors, Goldblum and an accomplice, Clarence Miller, lured Wilhelm to a parking garage in Pittsburgh, where Goldblum stabbed the man 26 times. While out on bail, Goldblum tried to hire an undercover police officer to murder Miller, who had fingered Goldblum for the crime.

Goldblum, who has maintained his innocence, was poised to die in prison, having unsuccessfully appealed for clemency seven times. But in 2019, Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, which Fetterman chairs, voted unanimously to release Goldblum from jail, overriding the wishes of Wilhelm’s family. To justify its decision, the board points to the judge and prosecutor on Wilhelm’s case, who has since concluded he was the accomplice rather than the principal assailant.

But in 2007, a federal appeals court rejected Goldblum’s request for an evidentiary hearing, writing, “there is just too much evidence here establishing Goldblum’s guilt.” Both judge and prosecutor have been vague about what information motivated their reversal, and no one has claimed Goldblum is innocent of the hitman charge.

Here is John Fetterman bragging about saving taxpayers money by releasing the murderer from jail while saying he’s “happy” that the first-degree murderer will be able to return home to his family. What about Goldblum’s dead victim, who will NEVER be able to return home to his family? Do these radical Democrats who want you to elect them in November ever think about the victims of these crimes or their loved ones who will never see them again while he’s advocating for violent murderers to be released from prison?


The soft-on-crime Democrat candidate John Fetterman, who is running against the popular Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz is watching what was once a commanding lead over Republican Mehmet Oz quickly shrinking in the PA Senate race.

A new Emerson College Polling-The Hill survey released Friday, Sept. 30, shows that 45% of likely Pennsylvania general election voters support Fetterman while 43% percent support the Republican candidate, Dr. Mehmet Oz, falling within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Eight% said they were undecided, while 5% said they plan to vote for another candidate.
