Skip to comments.PA's top judge says colleagues snared in porn scandal will 'have to pay the piper'

RON CASTILLE, the chief justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, says any judges snared in the pornographic-email scandal unfolding in Harrisburg at the state Attorney General's Office will "have to pay the piper."
Castille, speaking yesterday on a conference call with reporters, said he has asked Attorney General Kathleen Kane - in a letter Thursday followed by a telephone call - for the names of any judges who sent or received the hard-core pornography. Castille also wants copies of the emails.
"I want to make sure that, if they are involved, they have to pay the piper," Castille said. "It's just sad for us as a branch of government if anyone is involved in this type of activity."
Castille said the emails, if judges exchanged them, could cause problems two ways under the state's Judicial Code of Conduct:
Using state computers to exchange the explicit emails would violate that code. A conflict of interest is also possible if a judge exchanged emails in private with a prosecutor who appeared in his court to argue cases.
"If you're emailing back and forth with the Attorney General's Office as a judge, it might show you have a conflict that will require you to recuse yourself from these cases," Castille explained.

I beg to differ. Here in CT we got you beat. All the way down to dog catcher. I don’t trust or believe a single one.
Here in PA this probably just means he's accepting bribes.
One thing most of state employees have in common — they’re democrats.
And please notice he has requested copies of the emails... just to make sure they’re hardcore enough to warrant trouble, of course.
Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault: I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.
Captain Renault: Everybody out at once!
And that means whatever they have to pay, won't amount to much, the penalty is just a reminder to not get caught again, then again it is new for a democrat to face any penalty for getting caught.
What’s the big deal? It’s free speech, iddin it? < /sarc >
translation: there is some corrupt Democrat Party bigwig out there with the power to squash this, and his name is Piper.
How are they Dims when he’s a Republican as are all the top State officials?
Time to take out our own trash.
Oh yeah...well Ill match S FL scum against your PA scum any day!!!!!
PA has Sopranos scum while South Florida has more of the Scarface scum.
I live in South Florida. If you take out Miami-Dade county, FL can’t hold a candle to the corruption in PA.
S.Fl. has the sleaziest scumbag RATS in the country and we will fight to hold on to that title!!!!!!
Ha! Says you.
We have Leland Yee...an anti-gunner accused of all things, trafficking arms in addition to conspiracy and corruption (demoncRAT resume enhancements)...
Nice try though!
Punishment for receiving inappropriate emails????
