Bruce Castor somehow spent the last 30 years working in the public sector — in various Montgomery County government posts — yet never had a reporter come to his house for a story.
That's what the outgoing county commissioner claimed Thursday on Twitter, anyway.
The former Montco district attorney, who is leaving office after a failed run this year at winning back the DA job, took to social media after being hounded, apparently, by the press. Castor is back in the news for his role in the Bill Cosby scandal. Castor, during his time as DA, declined to press charges against Cosby in 2005.
After Cosby was charged with sexual assault Wednesday by the current Montgomery County DA, it seems some dogged reporter — or two — went to his house. Which, as you'll see, is a big no-no to the cap-locked elected official.
The unbelievable part, frankly, is that no reporter in 30 years that Castor was a public servant ever showed up at his doorstep while working on a story. But that is apparently his story, and he's sticking to it.
One last question for Mr. Castor, and no, we're not going to his house to ask, is: Should we correct this story to take out the phrase "comes to a quiet close" in describing the end of your long run?
