Old-style machine corruption in Pennsylvania


An excellent piece of reportage from Chris Bowers at MyDD on a story previously unknown to me. (What were the odds...)

In the good old days, Pennsylvania - and Philadelphia - were controlled by Republican machines (the Vare family business).

For several decades, Philly has been Dem-controlled, and the mechanics are not pretty, it seems.

Bowers promises further material - will the story fire the left of the 'sphere like Jeff Gannon, I wonder? (No, I don't, actually...)
