Report: Montco GOP Chair Will Be Charged with Sexual Assault

Alleged incident took place the night after big political powwow.

The Daily News has a juicy, juicy scoop:

According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, [Montgomery County Republican Party] Chairman Robert J. Kerns, partner in the Lansdale law firm Kerns, Pearlstine, Onorato & Hladik, LLP, allegedly got drunk the night after a major GOP power-broker dinner last month and sexually assaulted a female with whom he worked. Rumors are also circulating that a grand jury is being convened and Kerns’ law partner was subpoenaed.

The night before, Tom Corbett was in town for the party’s annual fall dinner in West Norriton. The DN says several anonymous sources corroborated the rumors, but Kerns himself could not be reached, and several state party leaders would not comment.
