No credibility left for Pennsylvania Legislature

A must-read commentary today by Lowman S. Henry at titled "Crisis of Confidence: PA legislature has lost all credibility."

Henry does not mince words "... the Pennsylvania legislature has become an embarrassment. So much so that even a 20-year veteran like Tom Tangretti feels the need to retire while he can still do so with his personal dignity intact. This raises several concerns: first, if the good guys retire with what does that leave us? And, second how many potential candidates will pass on seeking legislative office because they don't want their good names to be associated with the cesspool on the Susquehanna?"
