Corbett For Governor spokesman Kevin Harley, August 24, on Capitolwire.com:

"[In Corbett’s] “taxpayer protection pledge, fees are not included in that, just taxes are.”

Tom Corbett, March 8 on KDKA:

Jon Delano: "You're pledging no tax increases of any type? Fees, taxes, state income tax, the sales tax - can you be precise as to what you - "

Corbett: "The pledge as it's written - and I don't have it written here - is no tax increases during the course of the next term. That's exactly what it says. That's what we're gonna aim for. No tax increases whatsoever."

Delano: "And that would include ... "

Corbett: "Those are state. Those are states."

Delano: "...fees on use of services, things like that?"

Corbett: "That's right."

Delano: "Everything?"

Corbett: "That's right."

Come on guys, can Corbett really be expected to keep all of his lies straight? There are so many. Plus remember, he thinks the citizens of Pennsylvania are uneducated, lazy people who aren't capable of seeing him for the immoral dirtbag he has always been.

The BEAVER COUNTY TIMES has not follow up properly by not asking the key questions of Corbett's Campaign Manager in Beaver County:

Q1. Who advised Camp it was ok to use Campaign Money for his Private Education?

Q2. Did Camp work on his Master Degree on County Time or/and with County Resources such as phones, computers, copy equipment etc etc?

Q3. What does Corbett think of Camp using Campaign Money for his private tution?

Q4. Why not appoint and Independent Prosecutor?

Q5. Did the Attorney General Office advise Camp to use the Campaign Funds and cite the law that makes it allowable?

Corbett has not been asked any questions whtsoever on this subject and a few more coming up soon.

His campaign got caught with another one yesterday. When Onorato's guys found that the only budget he had ever voted for (back as a Shaler Township commissioner) raised property taxes a whopping 20%, Corbett's guys came back with "Well, Onorato raised taxes on alcoholic beverages to pay for public transportation."

Now, I don't know about any of you, but I can choose to take a drink or not, if I can't afford a few cents extra. Comparing that to a hike in property taxes, no matter how long ago, is beyond apples and oranges. It tells me Corbett and the crowd who support the "no taxes of any kind" have very little judgment and absolutely no understanding of how to govern.

And anyway, how is he going to pay for the hiked up budget he submitted for the AG's office this year? Gut ChIP or DEP to pay for his prosecutions? Right.

(c) not seek to obtain from an unrepresented accused a waiver of
important pretrial rights, such as the right to a preliminary

(d) make timely disclosure to the defense of all evidence or
information known to the prosecutor that tends to negate the
guilt of the accused or mitigates the offense, and, in connection
with sentencing, disclose to the defense and to the tribunal all
unprivileged mitigating information known to the prosecutor,
except when the prosecutor is relieved of this responsibility by a
protective order of the tribunal;
(e) not subpoena a lawyer in a grand jury or other criminal
proceeding to present evidence about a past or present client
unless the prosecutor reasonably believes:

by any applicable privilege;

(2) the evidence sought is essential to the successful
completion of an ongoing investigation or prosecution; and

(3) there is no other feasible alternative to obtain the

(f) except for statements that are necessary to inform the public
of the nature and extent of the prosecutor's action and that
serve a legitimate law enforcement purpose, refrain from making
extrajudicial comments that have a substantial likelihood of
heightening public condemnation of the accused and exercise
reasonable care to prevent investigators, law enforcement
personnel, employees or other persons assisting or associated
with the prosecutor in a criminal case from making an
31 extrajudicial statement that the prosecutor would be prohibited
from making under Rule 3.6 or this Rule.

(g) When a prosecutor knows of new, credible and material
evidence creating a reasonable likelihood that a convicted
defendant did not commit an offense of which the defendant was
convicted, the prosecutor shall:

(1) promptly disclose that evidence to an appropriate court
or authority, and

(2) if the conviction was obtained in the prosecutor's

(i) promptly disclose that evidence to the
defendant unless a court authorizes delay, and

(ii) undertake further investigation, or make
reasonable efforts to cause an investigation, to
determine whether the defendant was
convicted of an offense that the defendant did
not commit.

(h) When a prosecutor knows of clear and convincing evidence
establishing that a defendant in the prosecutor's jurisdiction was
convicted of an offense that the defendant did not commit, the
prosecutor shall seek to remedy the conviction.
