Mike Folmer is being bought. Sell out. No wonder we can't get any cable competition in Pennsylvania. Comcast buys out all the politicians. Same goes for Verizon and AT&T.
I haven't read or heard a word come out of Pa. State Senators Mike Folmer's mouth about Tom Corbett's no bid state contract to a private company that employ's Ed Rendell.

It's is unbelievable that our elected politicians can't stop wasting our tax money on political payoffs.

If Tom Corbett wouldn't investigate Jerry Sandusky during an election year he won't look at Pa. State Senator Mike Folmer's corruption.

Mike Folmer used his taxpayer paid state website to lobby for a state healthcare contract for AT&T as well.

Folmer's corruption trial can start right after Jane Orie's ends.
