Corbett returns the favors

Marty Lane is a politically-connected businessman who owns insurance companies and property management firms. He has donated $88,000 to Corbett’s campaigns and paid $1800 toward the cost of Mrs. Corbett’s inaugural ball gown. Now Corbett has returned those favors and nominated Lane’s son, Gregory, to be one of two commissioners at the Civil Service Commission for a 6-year term at a yearly salary of $82,500. Watch local TV coverage of the story here.

Corbett also lived in a Martin Lane-owned luxury condo (example of a unit in picture below) in Harrisburg while he was the attorney general. Did Corbett pay full market rent for the condo? If so, it should be easy for the governor to release the rent receipts and cancelled checks.
