Pennsylvania state Rep. Scott Ramaley dropped out of a state Senate race yesterday. Keystone Politics reports that internal polling suggested Ramaley was bound to lose.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette offers background:
Mr. Ramaley, 33, was charged three weeks ago with holding a no-work job as an aide to former state Rep. Mike Veon while Mr. Ramaley was making his first bid for office in 2004. The charges against him grew out of a state grand jury investigation into bonuses paid to state employees for Democratic Party campaign work. Mr. Veon and 10 state House Democratic aides have also been charged.
Mr. Ramaley today said the charges, brought by Republican state Attorney General Tom Corbett, were politically motivated.
