INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATORS FOR YOU, POLITICALLY-MOTIVATED HACKS FOR ME
suggestion that incoming Attorney General Kathleen Kane use "outside counsel" to conduct her probe into Corbett's own bungling of the Jerry Sandusky case. (Times-Tribune, 1/11/13)
After all, Corbett has said the use of outside counsel to investigate fellow politicians is illegal. (York Daily Record, 7/22/08)
"It's obvious [he] doesn't understand the law," Corbett's spokesman and ex-political candidate Kevin Harley sneered when John Morganelli (and pretty much everyone else) suggested that Corbett appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the legislature.
For the record, we're also baffled why the Times-Tribune editorial board didn't ask Corbett about the contradiction.
But they're just following tradition. No one blinked when Attorney General candidate David Freed suggested that, if elected, he could assign the case against his father-in-law, Leroy Zimmerman, to a special prosecutor. (Patriot-News, 12/6/11)
Tell us, Kevin Harley, does anyone in Pennsylvania, even our Governor, understand the law?
