  1. H3 – do u have a thing for corbett? What is your obsession. Last time I checked kane was being charged with crimes not corbett. Let me guess. It’s George bushes fault. Sad and intellectually void.

  2. In other news – Philadelphia DA’s Office confirms that THERE WAS a complaint made against one of the Corbett Pervs that currently get paid by the taxpayers of Philadelphia. Seems that complaint was made by a woman against Marc Costanzo (Fina’s right-hand man, driver and personal assistant).
