GERLACH ON KDKA TV: CORBETT HAS "INHERENT CONFLICT OF INTEREST"
Congressman and GOP gubernatorial primary hopeful Jim Gerlach continues to question partisan Republican Tom Corbett's handling of the bonusgate investigation.
On Tuesday while on a Western Pennsylvania campaign trip, Congressman Jim Gerlach sat down for an interview with KDKA's Jon Delano.
When asked by Delano if he thought Corbett has "botched" the bonusgate investigation, Gerlach replied he believed Corbett has an "inherent conflict of interest."
You can watch the interview here. The bonusgate questions and answers begin at 13:45.
Gerlach has probably seen the same campaign finance reports we've examined here at CasablancaPA and is just as skeptical of Corbett's ability to be impartial when Corbett has accepted millions of dollars from Republican legislators, party officials and committees.
The bonusgate investigation began 2 1/2 years ago. Democrats were arrested over a year ago. Still no Republican indictments.
Corbett promised "shocking" revelations to the Tribune Review in February. What is the hold up? Have all those campaign contributors been getting a return on their investment?
