Just days before he is to be sentenced on a federal corruption conviction, former state Sen. Vince Fumo and girlfriend Carolyn Zinni have gotten engaged, sources tell us.

Fumo, 66, proposed to Zinni, 51, who was by his side throughout his trial, over the weekend down the shore and we're told they plan to wed before Fumo's sentencing on July 14. Legal and political insiders suggest that in addition to simply being a romantic gesture, Fumo may be trying to ensure that Zinni, who runs Zinni's, a dress shop, in Springfield, Delaware County, will be the one to handle his business affairs while he is in prison.

Fumo has not returned our requests for comment.

UPDATE: Zinni has also not returned a request for comment, and we are now hearing the pair, each of whom have been married twice before, might not wed before Fumo's sentencing. You'll note a new question mark in the headline.
