The sleaze capital - PittsburghLIVE.comHarrisburg is one of the sleaziest state capitals in the country,' said Jake Tapper, Washington correspondent for Salon, and that was before he saw the sleaze that oozed from under the closed doors of the state Legislature at 2 a.m. one recent night after the politicians voted themselves an illegal pay hike.

The sleaze capital - from Trib and Ralph R. Reiland
When I was about to run for public office, my sister let her opinions known to me. She hated the idea because of the political landscape. She knows that the politicians are so dirty and she worried that I'd be put into that same ugly mess, right along with them. She feared for me, her big brother. I asked her to worry less and that all would be fine. I promised to do my best to stay pure and prove her wrong. So far, so good for me. But the sleaze factor still remains as high as ever.
