Currently 31% of the electorate think he should be re-elected and 51% say no. Yet Governor Corbett continues to march soley in the direction of 30 pieces of silver for himself.

He certainly has several options. He's been a willing shill for the oil & gas industry, gambling conglomerates, and corporations interested in cornering the State liquor business among others.
