HARRISBURG – The state Attorney General’s Office launched its second political corruption case Monday in Dauphin County Court in a case alleging that millions in taxpayer dollars was used by onetime members of the House Republican caucus to further political campaigns.
In his opening statement, Chief Deputy Attorney General Frank Fina said the case – dubbed “Computergate” by the court – was about one thing: “the use of taxpayer money for campaigns.”
“It’s about powerful people taking the public’s money and using it to expand and enhance their campaigns,” Fina told the jury of six men and six women.
