Political Motivation Bill

Two Democratic state lawmakers are introducing a bill that looks to require the attorney general to put any gubernatorial aspirations on hold for at least four years after leaving office.
HARRISBURG - Two Democratic state lawmakers are introducing a bill that looks to require the attorney general to put any gubernatorial aspirations on hold for at least four years after leaving office.
  
The legislation comes in the wake of criticism of Governor Tom Corbett's roles as attorney general and later as governor, in connection with the sex abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky.

The proposal aims to address concerns that an attorney general could use the office to advance political goals while in office.
