VT: A rape case filed against a newly elected Pennsylvania GOP prosecuting attorney, former school board member and prominent evangelical Christian, Chad Michael Salsman, has opened doors to a real “election steal,” this one Pennsylvania in 2016.
Salsman, a Trump acolyte rewarded with a position as District Attorney, has been arrested for raping women in his office.
This case is a coverup by the GOP, throwing Salsman under the “short bus” when real accusations are buried. As noted below, the door opened in 2018 when a detailed YouTube video by a Robert LeVesque detailed a massive human trafficking ring run by Pennsylvania militia types including motorcycle gangs.
The video alleged that GOP District Attorney Chad Salsman ran the ring. Human trafficking in this area of Pennsylvania is well documented with rural Trump-o-phile adults selling their children to human traffickers.
County after county in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia have built Trump organizations using narcotics and human trafficking involving local elected officials, to build a new ‘red wall’ that almost pushed a Russian agent into the White House for a second term.
Daily Beast: Bradford County District Attorney Chad Michael Salsman, 44, was charged Wednesday with a slew of crimes, including sexual assault, indecent assault, witness intimidation, obstruction of justice, and promoting prostitution, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement. from NorthCentralPA.com:
Towanda, Pa. – Bradford County District Attorney Chad Salsman is under investigation by the Pa. Attorney General’s Office. Salsman’s private office was raided by police officers on Dec. 22, just a few weeks after a Youtube video alleged Salsman is connected to a multi-state human trafficking effort operating within Bradford county.
The YouTube video, which has since been removed from the site, was sent to NorthcentralPa.com in the form of a news tip from a concerned Bradford County citizen. The video was created and posted by a man named Robert LeVesque, who claims to have worked for individuals who he alleges are involved in drug and sex trafficking, and to have received multiple tips and statements from victims.
Human trafficking is a well-documented issue in Central Pennsylvania, particularly along major roadways like Route 15 and Route 80.
In 2018, an article published in the Daily Review by Brianne Ostrander detailed the county’s “secret problem” of human trafficking “tucked away beneath the atmosphere of friendly, sleepy, farm town Pennsylvania.” The article, which was referenced in LeVesque’s video, explains the crimes are “difficult to prove and hard to prosecute” noting the prevalence of “sex trafficking in the form of adults selling their children for sex in exchange for amenities.”
A different case resurfaced in a criminal affidavit filed in Wysox Township as recently as Dec. 2, 2020. In the police document, Jimmy Arnold Hayes, 60, of Towanda, is charged with multiple felonies for alleged sexual abuse of minors less than 13 years old.

Prosecutors allege Salsman, a Republican elected in November 2019, manipulated several women into unwanted sexual acts and sexually assaulted them. After forcing some of the women into unwanted sex acts on his office desk, Salsman then directed them into his private bathroom to “clean up” using paper towels or cleaning wipes, according to a criminal complaint.
Then, he threatened them into silence. “Salsman picked these victims because they didn’t have any other choice, because he thought they would be easy to silence.”
Salsman defeated long-time Assistant District Attorney Al Ondrey in 2019 to become the top prosecutor in Bradford County, a rural community three hours outside Philadelphia. Prior to that, he was an Adams County prosecutor and a private defense attorney in Bradford.
According to local media reports, he is a married father of three and, as recently as 2019, a vice-chairman of the missions committee for the Braintrim Baptist Church. He cited his three young daughters as his reason for running for DA.
