Locally there have been shenanigans with absentee ballots but the only case I remember of in-person voter fraud was when W-B Area school director Joe Moran's kid was up for a seat on the WVW School board but it came out that he had been voting at his old man's address in the Miner's Mills section of Wilkes-Barre. Even then he only voted once but at the wrong address.
Before Tom Corbett became Governor he was the Attorney General of the Commonwealth but he didn't prosecute one case of voter fraud. He was busy with the Bonusgate investigation that put Democrats in in jail and ignored the allegations against Jerry Sandusky.
To help sell this new law the Corbett Administration gave a contract to a Romney fundraiser.
TNC: Republican Gov. Tom Corbett's administration has signed a $249,660 contract with a company run by Mitt Romney fundraiser, former state GOP party executive director, pharmaceutical lobbyist, and school voucher advocate Chris Bravacos to direct a media campaign promoting the state's Voter ID law.
Yes, that very same law, requiring that voters present identification at the polls, which critics contend will suppress Democratic-leaning non-white, poor, elderly and youth voters and which House Majority Leader Mike Turzai recently boasted (video) is “gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.”
See a video produced by this outfit of overly happy people showing a card that is supposed to resemble an ID. Also confuses the issue by saying “other kind of photo id” will be accepted, without explaining what that means.

In July 2005, the Pennsylvania Legislature voted themselves a illegal pay raise in the middle of the night.
Like many of us, Gene was outraged that our legislators could be so greedy. He wanted a symbol to show the waste and abuse of the system shown by these legislators.
From that, your favorite 25 foot pink pig was born and became famous!
