Lt. Governor under investigation

Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pa - The Office of Inspector General is investigating Lt. Gov. Mike Stack for abuse of staff. The story was first reported by WHTM-Harrisburg.  

According to the report, there have been numerous complaints lodged against Stack and his wife Tonya for abusive language and behavior toward state police and staff members at the lieutenant governor’s official residence.

The inspector general’s office has interviewed current and former state troopers who were on the Stack security detail and personal staff at their state-provided home at Fort Indiantown Gap. That investigation is underway and may be nearing conclusion.

Gov. Tom Wolf is said to have ordered the investigation. The governor’s office is refusing comment.

One complaint says the Stacks insisted on running with lights and sirens even when it’s not an emergency. That is against State Police policy. When troopers refused, the sources say, troopers were berated with foul language, especially from Mrs. Stack.

Pennsylvania is one of just a handful of states that provide full-time security to the lieutenant governor and their spouse, but that security is not mandated by law and could be revoked.

Stack is a former state senator from Philadelphia and was elected lieutenant governor separately. Wolf did not choose him as his running mate.
