Corbett to Kane: Give Me All The Pornographic Emails You Have
It’s rare that a state’s governor asks the attorney general for her stash of porn, but that’s the current situation in Pennsylvania.
After AG Kathleen Kane allowed press members to see portions of pornographic emails sent using state email addresses on Thursday, Gov. Tom Corbett sent a letter to Kane asking her to release the entire trough of pornographic emails to him. “The governor wants all the facts,” his spokesman told the Inquirer.
Multiple top state officials received pornographic videos on their state email accounts, which Kane discovered while investigating how the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse investigation was handled. Corbett did not receive any emails and was not aware of the practice.
Meanwhile, Campaign for a Fresh Start chair Katie McGinty, the former gubernatorial candidate, issued a statement today telling Corbett to “make a swift decision” on the matter and hold the porn traders accountable. She doesn’t specify what Corbett should do.
“Even in this day and age, too many women work in environments where this type of behavior is tolerated,” McGinty said in the statement. “Tom Corbett must send a message that this behavior is unacceptable. A delay in action will simply send the wrong message to the women of Pennsylvania.”
Sending sexually-suggestive emails with state accounts is prohibited under state policy.
