Explicit email scandal


    Guests: Jeremy Roebuck, John Baer

    Last week, two top officials in Governor Tom Corbett’s administration resigned, and one more this morning, having been implicated in a scandal involving the transfer of lewd and pornographic material using state computers. The Attorney General’s office names six other individuals involved in the scandal, but has yet to release the contents of the allegedly pornographic emails, despite a request from Chief Justice Castille of Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court.  This hour, we get up to speed on the ongoing saga with JOHN BAER, columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News, and JEREMY ROEBUCK, courts reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
