In case you missed it, here's Bill Toland on claims that Tom Corbett's suit to health care reform was politically motivated. Note -- in the full version of the story -- how the emails in question had to come from Wisconsin, since Keystone Progress couldn't get them via Pa's wobbly Right To Know law:
A liberal Pennsylvania advocacy group says the office of Attorney General Tom Corbett was in communication with a consultant for the Republican State Leadership Committee before he decided to join a lawsuit challenging the landmark health care reform package signed into law in March.
Those communications, according to Keystone Progress, lend credence to the accusation that the lawsuit was politically motivated, even though Mr. Corbett, a Republican candidate for governor, and the 13 other Republican attorneys general who joined the lawsuit said that the suit was about policy, not politics.
The suit "seeks to protect the citizens of Pennsylvania whose rights will be violated when the health care reform legislation [is] signed into law by President Obama," Mr. Corbett said at the time.
On Thursday, a spokesman for Mr. Corbett's office, Kevin Harley, said "the reason the attorney general joined the lawsuit was that the [part of the law] that requires citizens to purchase health care is unconstitutional, and in violation of the commerce clause" of the Constitution.
