Ex-Senate Leader, 7 Others Charged in Turnpike Probe
A former state Senate leader and seven others have been charged in a "pay to play" case involving the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Wednesday the eight are accused of criminal activity for their financial and political advantage.
A grand jury heard evidence that cash, travel, entertainment and political contributions were secretly provided to public officials and political groups by turnpike vendors and their consultants.
The defendants include former state Senate Democratic Leader Bob Mellow, former turnpike chairman Mitchell Rubin and former turnpike chief executive Joe Brimmeier. Three former turnpike officials and two former turnpike vendors were also charged.
The allegations include conspiracy, bribery, theft and bid rigging. Kane says the public has lost millions of dollars as a result of the scheme.
