DEER TOM, I DIDUNT DOO NUTHIN
Ever hear about the guy who murdered his parents then asked the court for leniency because he's an orphan?
That's how Tom Corbett sounded when he whined that his boffo-stupendo investigation of the House Republicans took so everlastingly long because those meanies went and hid all their evidence.
Maybe if he'd started investigating them back when he said he started investigating them, they wouldn't have had a chance to get all their ducks in a row - just as everyone in Harrisburg except apparently the crack investigators at the OAG predicted they would do.
Ever throw something away, then realize later that it was actually more valuable than you thought and you're gonna need it, and then you have to go outside and dig through the Dumpster to find it? Yeah, it's kind of like that for Corbett.
But it wasn't just the boxes that Corbett waited six months to ask pretty please that foiled his crack investigative team. After all, Brett Feese wrote Corbett a sweet little note: "Deer Tom, I didunt doo nuthin. Luv, Brett." Who wouldn't be fooled?
Corbett claims his investigation was stymied by notes Feese directed his assistant to fabricate, notes intended to mislead Corbett's agents.
Notes that were turned over to Corbett in December of 2008.
Got that? The reason why Corbett's investigation took so long is because of the diabolically deceptive notes that were turned over twenty-two months after the investigation supposedly began. That, and some boxes he waited six months to subpoena.
You almost have to feel sorry for a guy who's up against this mastermind-level obfuscation.
