AG Corbett to announce new charges against former State Rep. Veon today



Attorney General Tom Corbett has scheduled a news conference for 1 this afternoon in Pittsburgh to announce that his office has filed new criminal charges against former House Democratic Minority Whip Mike Veon and one of his staffers, Anna Marie Peretta-Rosepink.

The charges deal with the Beaver Initiative for Growth, a nonprofit that Veon created and helped fund with state grants. Other details were not immediately provided by Corbett’s office.

Veon (D., Beaver) and Rosepink were among a dozen House Democratic insiders charged last year in the initial phase of Bonusgate, Corbett’s corruption probe into whether large government bonuses were given as rewards to legislative staffers who performed campaign work.
