Sen. Leach Pranked?

Maybe state Sen. Daylin Leach got pranked or hacked or something. Otherwise, why the cookbook?

Sen. Leach Pranked?

I think it's possible Montco Democratic state Sen. Daylin Leach was pranked or hacked like that New York congressman and his penis picture.

I say this because two readers sent me what appears to be an official Leach invite calling for recipes for a summer cookbook his office is putting together. Here it is.

CALLING ALL RECIPES!
 
Submit yours to the "Taste of the 17th" cookbook!
This summer, my office is putting together a cookbook called "Taste of the 17th", featuring - you guessed it - recipes submitted by residents of the 17th District. I'd like to solicit you for any recipes you'd like to offer, including family specialties passed down from generation to generation, cultural dishes representative of your roots, and even meals you've created on the fly!

 

Recipes can include appetizers, entrees, desserts and beverages for any meal and can be easy or advanced, quick or time-consuming. Simply send an email to Liz Hood at ehood@pasenate.com or call my King of Prussia office to participate.

 

Thanks - I'm looking forward to your submissions!

I suspect foul play only because it seems to me there are a lot more important issues (not to mention no shortage of cookbooks) that Leach and his office could be working on.

But my readers have some suggestions. One says send him a recipe for "Lame Duck Soup." Another says the senator clearly has too much time on his hands and recommends that "Chef Leach" prepare a hearty, slow-cooked Citizens Constitutional Convention made with fewer and part-time legislators with less perks and benefits, campaign finance reform, a better redistricting system and zeroed-out legislative slush funds.

Seems to me that's a recipe we all could sink our teeth into. Grrrr.
