Corbett Reports $23K Worth of Travel and Gifts

Governor Tom Corbett reported more than $23,000 worth of travel and gifts in his annual statements of financial interest for 2013, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Among the items Corbett reported are a $13,500 trip to Brazil, a $175 framed U.S. Open flag from the Merion Golf Club, $850 worth of sporting event tickets, a $150 pair of sneakers and $920 in meals from the Republican Governors Association, the Inquirer reported.

Public officials can accept gifts, meals and lodging as long as they disclose what they receive in annual statements.

According to the Inquirer, some area legislators reported no gifts or travel, including Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi (R., Delaware), Rep. Bill Adolph (R., Delaware), Sen. Chuck McIlhinney (R., Bucks), Rep. Kate Harper (R., Montgomery), Rep. Margo Davidson (D., Delaware), Rep. Michael H. O'Brien (D., Phila.) and Rep. Rosita Youngblood (D., Phila.).
