An OSC spokesperson said it could not comment on the Hatch Act complaint, due to privacy laws.

She violated a lot of laws when she was governor here, but naturally nobody did anything about it. Her son actually ran a business out of the Governor’s mansion.

Here in Pennsylvania we have the Orie sisters, two Republicans, one's a Supreme Court Justice.

The Democrat DA has charged them with using staff for political purposes.

One's been convicted and sentenced to jail and the other is facing criminal charges.

But they never have to answer for their own crimes.

So I predict Sibelius will get off Scott-free.
