Last week the news was that Segarra had fired his campaign manager over a difference of opinion and the campaign getting off to a slow start . That was quickly met by a story from WNPR reporter Jeff Cohen that there may have been a different side that Segarra didn't want to share with the voting public. You can read Jeff's story here. It seems as though the Segarra Campaign manager was arrested for DUI and then arrested along with his wife for an altercation after the arrest.
Segarra quickly hired a new campaign manager. But quite possibly a little too quickly. In this age of the internet, it would seem that a quick background check or at least a Google search would be the first step before hiring someone that is going to represent you and your campaign. Apparently not for Segarra. If he or his campaign staff did check, they would have found the campaign managers college Twitter page with tweets referencing his illegal drug use.Michael Beckendorf makes reference to how "drunk" he is and isn't "oxycotin" a wonderful thing as well as his plans to do "Mushrooms". Oxycontin is a prescription narcotic painkiller and Magic Mushrooms are an illegal hallucinogenic
