You Know That Whole Holier Than Thou Republican Party? DOA In Pennsylvania
September 29, 2014

Well, my goodness, it appears that Pennsylvania Republican Governor Tom Corbett has hired a staff that likes porn. Kinky porn, which I will not describe here but — trust me — it’s kinky. You really don’t want to know. Unless, of course, you’re kinky and either drunk or lost at this beauty salon.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane reportedly gave local journalists a look at a series of sexually explicit emails, videos and photos that she said were circulated on state computers by staffers who worked for Corbett during his time as the state’s attorney general.Some of those who allegedly sent and received the content, according to the newspaper, have gone on to high-ranking jobs in Corbett’s gubernatorial administration, including the state’s police commissioner and its secretary of environmental protection.

Okay, okay, so police commissioner is a stressful job. And so is environmental protection … almost.


I’m gonna stop here and remind you that this kinky stuff was found on state computers, paid for by the good folks of Pennsylvania. And, it might tell you something about the competency of the state police commissioner if the idiot doesn’t know that you cannot totally erase anything on a computer.

Corbett was on top of things, though.

Corbett’s Communications Director Lynn Lawson said “the images described in the accounts are unacceptable and have no place in the work environment.”

Ya think?

Now, I’d pitch a wall-eyed, snot-nosed hissy fit here except for one thing. Tom Corbett doesn’t have to fire these staffers because the voters of Pennsylvania will fire Tom Corbett in November. Mark my word.
