That will be the spin anyway.
AG Tom Corbett is going after Democrats in the Legislature.
State investigators last week executed a search warrant on the Capitol basement headquarters of the Democratic Office of Legislative Research in a broadening investigation into whether state employees were used to run several political campaigns last year.
The search, carried out shortly after 10 a.m. last Thursday, is part of a probe into former state Rep. Michael Veon, D-Beaver Falls, and whether he used taxpayer funds for campaign activities at the time he served as House Democratic whip.
A state grand jury is currently investigating Mr. Veon as well as a half-dozen other Democratic activists, state employees and former legislators, sources told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
One person familiar with the raid said agents appeared to know the precise location of boxes believed to contain campaign records, including research into Republican opponents. Four agents, dressed in suits, who brought their own dollies to carry away the material, presented a search warrant, quickly removed the boxes and carted them to a waiting van parked nearby.
Here’s a taxpayer scam that Harrisburg Republican weren’t a part of.
