GOV. CORBETT is standing by one state law-enforcement official caught up in a porn scandal, but has asked another to resign.
Corbett says information released this week by state Attorney General Kathleen Kane does not show that State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan opened any of the more than 300 explicit emails he received while working as a top deputy to Corbett when the governor served as attorney general.
Noonan has told the governor he did not look at the files, a Corbett spokeswoman said.
A source familiar with the porn scandal said Randy Feathers, another top deputy when Corbett was attorney general, is resisting for now the governor’s request to resign his post on the state Board of Probation and Parole.
A visit in the opposite direction – Berks officials going to Blair – was one of five strategy points that emerged from last month’s crime summit.
Officials in both areas said that visit was still likely to happen. But Randy Feathers, named by Corbett’s office as a facilitator in getting the two communities together, said the Blair-to-Berks visit would happen first. It is scheduled for Feb. 21.
