This story took place over the past week or so but it’s just bubbling to the surface outside of the local news beat. In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Mayor Danene Sorace (D) held an extremely short press conference on October 2nd to announce the retirement of their Chief of Police, Jarrad Berkihiser.

And it was because of comments that the Chief’s wife had posted on Facebook in support of President Trump. (Lancaster Online) Read the rest HERE.
