Pennsylvania Democrat Caught on Tape: Dogs Are Smarter Than Police

The audio snippet, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, is a conversation between Democrat Scott Wallace and a Pennsylvania voter.

Scott Wallace, the Democrat running in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District, has sparred with his opponent, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), over the role of law enforcement throughout the campaign.

But new audio published by the Washington Free Beacon appears to reveal Wallace’s unvarnished opinion about the men and women in blue. “[D]ogs are smarter than police officers,” Wallace can be heard saying in an exchange with a voter at a campaign event.

The Beacon has more details on the recording:

The audio was recorded by a constituent during a meet-and-greet at an office opening in July in Montgomery County, Pa., but was sent to the Free Beacon on Sunday. The Pennsylvania resident, who wished to remain anonymous, described themselves as an independent voter who is not “thrilled with Trump” and was giving Wallace a chance, but has since decided that they are going to vote for Fitzpatrick after hearing Wallace make the comments.

Wallace was allegedly discussing gun control and school shootings with a constituent at the time the audio was recorded, particularly the subject of arming teachers. The resident who recorded the comments claims the constituent speaking to Wallace at the time alluded to how teachers are smarter than police officers, at which point Wallace made the comment that even dogs are smarter than police officers.

Wallace’s campaign put out a statement criticizing the length of the audio clip published by the Beacon rather than addressing what the candidate said.

Wallace has courted controversy for the entirety of his campaign. Earlier this week, he “dropped an f-bomb” at a debate hosted at the Congregation Tifereth Israel synagogue. And his company, Wallace Global Fund, “gave $300,000 to groups supporting the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) movement against Israel.”
