Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2009
Categories: Jane Orie
Authorities seized thousands of computer records from one of Jane Orie's district offices in mid-December 2009, as part of a very private criminal investigation against Orie's campaign goings-on. A story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette alleged that the core of the investigation involves the employment of one of her district offices for campaign purposes. The Post-Gazette subsequently reported that a University of Pittsburgh student intern had told prosecutors of widespread political campaigning inside the office on behalf of Orie's sister, Judge Melvin. The story also revealed that Orie's chief of staff had begun cooperating with investigators.
