Governor Tom Wolf said that he will not release the Inspector General’s report he ordered looking into Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack’s treatment of his protection detail and staff in the LG’s mansion.
“I don’t think anything’s to be served by piling on top of that,” Wolf said according to the Inquirer.
Wolf cited concern over being fair to Stack’s wife, who is undergoing treatment for a mental illness and anger issues.
“My family is grateful for the support from the governor, as well as from family and friends across Pennsylvania as we address this private family health issue,” Stack said in response to the news.
Wolf ordered an investigation into Stack’s treatment of staff after reports of verbal abuse of staff surfaced last spring.
The announcement from Wolf comes ahead of Senate Minority Jay Costa (D-Allegheny) and some Democratic members of the Senate will endorse Stack’s re-election bid Wednesday at 10:30 in the Capitol.
“In a display of unity and strength, members and leaders of the Senate Democratic Caucus will gather in Harrisburg on Wednesday to announce support for Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack’s re-election,” an announcement of the press conference said.
Costa is the only Senate member named in the advisory.
