Pennsylvania's corruption tax

The Tribune-Review in Pittsburgh recaps the "The price we pay" for corruption in Pennsylvania on its editorial pages today.

On of millions of dollars Legislative leaders gave to staffers to perform political work on taxpayers' time, the very same leadership has hired consultants and lawyers to minimize the political damage from a criminal investigation into their practices.

From the editorial:
Taxpayers are picking up a large and growing legal tab to defend lawmakers who face accusations of illegally disbursing millions of public dollars.

And these clowns talk about tax relief?

Talk about a credibility gap. Like leeches they attach to the public purse and gorge themselves.
Read the full editorial at the newspaper's Web site.
