Gov. Tom Corbett is finished in this state. The plum, the cream at the top, the cherry, the big prize that he promised to the oil and gas industry has been declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. The $2 million-plus given to this man to get him elected so that this highly industrialized industry could put their drill rigs and toxic swimming pools in any neighborhood, next to a day care, a hospital, a park and our schools despite local zoning has been shot down.
Mr. Corbett is of no use to these people, and he will be sent packing at the next election. Good job, governor. Were you never told not to make a promise that you could not keep? Don’t let the door hit you as you walk out with your tail tucked between your legs. Shame on you!
