Tell me if this sounds familiar. A former state legislative leader is convicted of using public funds and public workers for campaign purposes. It should, since it describes situations involving leading members of both parties in Wisconsin. But apparently they do things a little differently when it happens in Pennsylvania:
Former Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Veon will spend six to 14 years in jail for his role in a public corruption case that involved using public money and employees for campaign work. Veon, sentenced this morning before Dauphin County Judge Richard A. Lewis, also was ordered to pay a $37,000 fine and $100,000 in restitution. He was not given bail.
Scott Jensen, who awaits a retrial on similar charges, was originally sentenced to only 15 months. Chuck Chvala, the highest-ranking Democrat convicted in the same case, spent 9 months in Dane County jail.
