I used to work for a republican in the PA legislature. Trust me, the "in office" campaigning happens all the time---and it is done by at least 99% of them---regardless of party.

Yep - that's very true. I used to work for a top Demo state official and though this type of situation didn't happen in her office, I knew it ran rampant in other offices within the party. This time around, though, it appears that the Demos got caught red-handed. I understand there will be more indictments coming down and I'm sure we'll see a GOP'er or two (or three) nailed right along with them.

It was definately the bonuses that made the difference. The only other time I've seen someone go down for "in office" campaigning (and other things) was Rep Habay from Fox Chapel/Hampton---he had some ex-employees with a grudge who blew the whistle. But I wonder how far the AG will go in cracking down on the practice. Should be interesting.

Naaa, Look in Northeastern Ohio ... Youngstown area, There are more judges and politicians from there in federal prison than anywhere else. Coruption abounds. One baliff was cought stealling oney from the courts, he was tried convicted and sentensed. The sentence was then waived and the conviction expunged all in the same stroke of the pen, although the average citizen has to wait one or more years for the record to be expunged.

the court then aloowed him to retired on full benifits. BTW it was the judge whose court he stole from that did all the other funny business. His Name starts with a M and it sounds like baloney.

Nah, that made sense.

Funny how the minority party in Congress is always against pork, but they're never against it when they're in the majority.
