ERIE, Pa. -- An Erie-area man will spend four to eight years in state prison for severely assaulting his ex-girlfriend's toddler despite a letter requesting leniency from ex-Gov. Tom Ridge.
Mr. Ridge says in the letter that he is a neighbor of 21-year-old Matthew Lazenby, who lives with his parents in Millcreek Township. Mr. Ridge says in the letter that Mr. Lazenby is a "loving and nurturing father" despite his crime.

What the Heck is Ridge smoking now!!!
This is an OUTRAGE!! This is DISGUSTING!!
We MUST cleanse the Republican party of these Democrats i.e. Tom Ridge, Charlie Crist, Mitt Romney, Linsey Graham, John McCain, etc.
Tom Ridge, just another Rino. Kid’s daddy must be a big contributor.
This was a great opportunity for Tom Ridge to keep his opinion to himself.
This is creepy.
what an ass
Would Mr. Ridge like to agree to go to jail and serve along with the perp should he re-offend?
“This is creepy.”
Ridge is creepy. And we thought illegal aliens were the only criminals Ridge likes to coddle.
Actually, I’m glad he did this. If he ever thought he had a prayer after the hit job he did on Bush, this eliminates that beyond any possible rehabilitation or redemption.
GO AWAY Tom Ridge.
Tom Ridge is a jackass. He’s an embarrassment that needs to go on retirement on some deserted island.
Deaf in more ways than you can imagine.
The boy ain’t right.
Tom Ridge, just another Rino. Kids daddy must be a big contributor.
Ridge is a pro-ABORTION RINO, AuntB.
This letter is consistant with the SOB's total disregard for innocent life.
Thanks for helping to keep us posted on the RINOs.
The article goes on to say: “An Erie County judge sentenced Mr. Lazenby yesterday. He had previously pleaded guilty to shaking and striking the 23-month-old toddler last Halloween, fracturing her skull and causing neurological damage.”
Four to eight years seems to be a very lenient sentence for someone who already has a history of seriously abusing the child.
Most likely Ridge’s neighbors purchased 3 out of five book copies sold. Spineless Ridge owed them a favor.
There are people that go down for twice or three times that for non violent offenses.
This guys parents must have alot of pull and influence.
Unbelievable!! What is wrong with that man? He has proved that he doesn’t have good judgment. Thank God he never became President. Shame on him!!
