Gov. Wolf revokes Lt. Gov. Stack’s state police detail

According to the governor’s office Friday, Gov. Tom Wolf has revoked the State Police coverage given to Lt. Gov. Michael Stack and his wife Tonya as a result of allegations of maltreatment of both his State Police protection and staff at The State House in Ft. Indiantown Gap that have led to an investigation by the Office of Inspector General into both his conduct and that of his wife.

 

In a statement offered Friday afternoon, Gov. Wolf’s press secretary JJ Abbott said the governor hand-delivered a letter to Lt. Gov. Stack informing him of the decision.

Scarnati and Stack team up to raise money for children’s hospitals

Seven years ago when he was Lieutenant Governor, Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) and now-Senate Republican Caucus Chief Counsel Drew Crompton came up with an idea: set up a bike ride for charity.

Now in its seventh year and third Lieutenant Governor, the 100-mile bike ride has raised around $900,000 for Pennsylvania’s children’s hospitals, including this year’s donations.

The three-day event takes riders from Gettysburg to Annville, where recipients will be presented with this year’s donation.

The first day beginning on September 11 will take riders from Gettysburg to York, the next day will take riders from York to Hershey, and the Sunday leg will take riders from Hershey to the Lieutenant Governor’s residence in Annville.

Speaking about the event to The PLS Reporter Friday, Crompton noted the event’s humble beginnings.

“At the time, [Sen. Scarnati] had a broken down Huffy in his garage,” he said. “He looked at me as if I was crazy.”
