Mayor Eric Papenfuse of Harrisburg was interviewed by racial activists on a fringe podcast called ‘Shoobin It Real’ in the city on Sunday afternoon. Papenfuse used their social media platform to attack his critics, and to broadcast lies about private citizens in what appeared to be a collaborative effort that was partially scripted and rehearsed.

According to Shoob, people are saying that Eric Papenfuse doesn’t serve black neighborhoods in Harrisburg, and they are calling him the mayor of Midtown, or the mayor of 3rd Street where he owns many commercial properties. Shoob blasted Papenfuse for using Karl Singleton as his token black friend to gain votes. He said Papenfuse has been exposed for awarding city contracts to his campaign donors, many of whom are Republican.
