Grassrootspa.com breaks the news today that Harrisburg activist Gene Stilp is calling upon partisan Republican Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Tom Corbett to step down from his post as Attorney General because of the danger of politicizing his bonusgate investigation:
“Tom Corbett can not serve two masters and be credible. 1000 days is a reasonable line in the sand. Now that he is running for governor he must leave the Attorney General post. He can’t do both without jeopardizing the non-political character any investigation should maintain. If he doesn’t step down maybe we should call it Corbettgate...All doubt must be removed from the mind of the voter that the investigation is political. As long as Tom Corbett is the Attorney General while he is running for governor a cloud of suspicion hangs over his campaign as to his motives for indicting or not indicting certain individuals.”
We only disagree with Stilp on one point...Corbett has already bastardized this investigation. That train left the station a long time ago.
