Tom Corbett is doing his very best to lose the race for Governor. Once comfortably ahead in the polls his mouth keeps getting in his way. His actions aren’t far behind and his own politicization of the AG’s office makes one fearful of the kind of Governor he’d be. It wasn’t enough he ticked off millions of unemployed Pennsylvanians when he called them fat and lazy. Then he said there were plenty of jobs around according to want ads. Ha she actually looked at those sparse help wanted sections? There’s almost nothing to them these days as he’d know if he’d ever had to actually peruse them looking for work. Corbett keeps giving legs to a story he needs to kill.
Then there’s the issue of his political lawsuit against hcr. Keystone Progress has used the Open Records Law to demand his communications with Republican Party operatives behind the effort and he refuses to comply with the law. You know this will turn into major attack ads come October don’t you? The Attorney General refusing to abide by the law? Now KP is appealing Corbett’s stonewalling. What, exactly, is he hiding?
On top of all that, as if that weren’t enough, Corbett for Governor campaign materials were openly available at an Attorney General’s Office booth at a recent county fair. PA2010 has the photo. It is illegal, of course, to mix politics with your government job as Corbett keeps explaining to Judges as he prosecutes Democrats for doing what he himself does. The proof is in the picture.
If Dan Onorato winds up being our next Governor it will be because Tom Corbett insisted on shooting himself at every opportunity. He’s working his darndest to lose this race.
