It’s always something. Pure paid trolling our emails and comments sections, coordinated censorship and harassment by big tech and fintech companies, wannabe activist state investigators like Nevada’s Sandra Edwards threatening fallacious prosecutions, 4chan incels with blowup dolls as girlfriends stealing intellectual property from The COVID Blog® , printing presses suddenly cancelling our partnership to print our books, burning down a house that this blogger once lived in…
This website is apparently public enemy #1 to the powers-that-be (“TPTB”). The attacks come from all angles, all day, every day, hoping they’ll beat us into submission. As The COVID Blog® approaches its two-year anniversary of existence, we thought we’ve seen it all. But this latest attack, in an attempt to manipulate and sabotage our bank accounts, was way out of left field. And it was executed by an elected official’s political action committee (PAC).
Who is Rich Fitzgerald?
Rich Fitzgerald is the Democrat Chief Executive of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh is the county seat. The chief executive, as the title implies, is the county’s top elected official. He is the supervisor and director over all county agencies, and appoints the heads of various departments.
The county executive serves a maximum of three, 4-year terms. Fitzgerald, 63, was first elected to the position in 2012, and is currently serving his third and final term, which will expire in January 2024. The Allegheny County Council consists of 12 Democrats and three Republicans.
Fitzgerald, not surprisingly, is a vaxx zealot. He tweeted the proverbial “I got my vaccine” virtue signaling post on January 12, 2021.
He took part in The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Phase III trials for the Moderna mRNA injections, beginning in the summer of 2020. Fitzgerald learned that he received the actual injections, not the placebos, during the trials that officially ended in October.

There are still at least 42 active or recruiting clinical trials for the Moderna mRNA injections, and 45 for the Pfizer mRNA injections in the United States, as of publishing. The UPMC Children’s Hospital hosted mRNA injection trials for kids ages 6 months to 12 years, starting in the summer of 2021.
A significant proportion of Fitzgerald’s Facebook and Twitter posts are de-facto advertisements for masks, mRNA and viral vector DNA injections.
Fitzgerald offered all Allegheny County employees $100 each in exchange for receiving the injections in March 2021.
Julie Hallinan, Friends of Rich Fitzgerald, and the $2,000 criminal bad check
Julie Hallinan (pictured) is the campaign manager for Fitzgerald. She is the director of Friends of Rich Fitzgerald, a political action committee (PAC). Hallinan oversees the PAC’s budget, which is about $1 million annually, according to her LinkedIn page. She also appears to do consulting work for the Biden Administration, and is a board member for the Women & Girls Foundation of Pennsylvania.
The COVID Blog® received an electronic check from Friends of Rich Fitzgerald in the amount of $1,955 on November 22, 2022.
Neither this blogger, nor his assistant, even noticed it since it was received right before Thanksgiving. The bank sent us notice on November 29 that the check had been returned and charged back. We were charged the processing fee by the e-check platform and a returned check fee by the bank, totaling $73.37. Additional safeguards we have in place on the bank account prevented any further financial damage.
Under Pennsylvania law:
“A person commits an offense if he issues or passes a check or similar sight order for the payment of money, knowing that it will not be honored by the drawee. An issuer is presumed to know that the check would not be paid, if payment was refused by the drawee for lack of funds, upon presentation within 30 days after issue, and the issuer failed to make good within ten days after receiving notice of that refusal.”
Passing a bad check between $1,000 and $75,000 is a first degree misdemeanor in Pennsylvania. We contacted Hallinan and provided her the opportunity to “make good” on the check by paying the fees we were assessed. She wrote back, saying they “apologize for the inconvenience.” She claimed that the check was fraudulent.

Regardless whether that’s true or not, it’s not our problem. We wrote back, telling Hallinan that we’re still out the funds due to her negligence or otherwise; and that she needed to make good. Hallinan did not respond further.
We filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Attorney General on December 13.
But Democrat Josh Shapiro is the current Pennsylvania Attorney General and Governor-Elect. He will appoint his successor prior to assuming the governorship on January 17, 2023. Further, the Friends of Rich Fitzgerald PAC gave $100,000 to the Josh Shapiro Campaign in 2021. Thus nothing will come of the complaint that we filed with Shapiro’s office.
Incompetence or sabotage?
Hallinan boasts on her LinkedIn page about raising millions of dollars for several political candidates, and acting in a fiduciary capacity therein. Yet she’s claiming that someone stole the Friends for Rich Fitzgerald PAC’s checking account information from under her nose, and started writing bad checks. That scenario demonstrates incompetence and gross negligence for someone entrusted to handle millions in campaign funds.
Sabotage is the only other possible reason for all this. The motive certainly exists, as vaxx zealots worship the injections almost like some god-like substance. He would not be the first state employee to attempt sabotaging, damaging and/or interfering in some way with our operations.
Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidences. Thus it’s possible, but highly unlikely, that our website which Fitzgerald obviously hates, was specifically targeted by some random thief who allegedly stole the PAC’s checking account info from the irresponsible fiduciary.
Regardless this article would have been absolutely unnecessarily if Fitzgerald and his magic millions campaign manager simply made good on the damage done to us. It’s just another day at The COVID Blog®. Government, mainstream media, big tech, fintech, Democrats, MAGA Republicans, etc. all hate this blogger and this website. So the attacks will continue. And we’ll keep on trucking forward.
