Another Fig Leaf Falls From Tom Corbett's Still-Open Office Of Political, Partisan Prosecutions

Which bone bruise is worse, that of Brian Nutt's integrity or that of Tom Corbett's integrity?

That the next career step of an attorney general's chief of staff (after a series of resume- and campaign-building political prosecutions) is to start a new office for an established partisan politics shop is more than troubling -- it is damning. Compounding the affront is the point that Governor-elect Corbett -- with his political advisor, Brian Nutt -- is currently negotiating political issues with some people Mr. Corbett (still the attorney general) currently is investigating or prosecuting . . . or, in other cases, people who have seemingly and inexplicably avoided prosecution and investigation.
