Lobbyist Accused of Sexual Assault
Lobbyist A.J. Marsico was arrested Saturday after being accused of a sex assault at a Center City hotel over the summer.
His arrest is notable, in part, because of his many high-profile connections. NBC 10 reports:
“Marsico is a senior associate at Greenlee Partners, a Pennsylvania government affairs firm. He is also the younger brother of Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico Jr. and cousin of Ron Marsico, a Pennsylvania state representative.
“Marsico is also the husband of Action News reporter Annie McCormick.”
6ABC is, of course, a media partner with Philly Mag.
The Daily News’ William Bender adds:
Marsico and McCormick got married in April 2013 at XIX — located in the same building as Greenlee Partners, where the alleged assault occurred — then honeymooned in France. Former Gov. Ed Rendell presided over their private ceremony.
Marsico has posted bail and maintains his innocence.
A previous version of this story mistakenly reported that 6ABC had not covered Marsico’s arrest.
