HARRISBURG — The state Attorney General's Office is reviewing a letter from a former Democratic legislator that asks for an investigation of Republican Gov. Tom Corbett's decision to keep his former education secretary on the state payroll at $139,000 for more than a year, with little evidence publicly provided of his work. J.J. Abbott, spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane, said he could “neither confirm nor deny an investigation” into the position held by former Secretary Ron Tomalis, who became the governor's adviser on special education in July 2013. He's paid the same amount as acting Secretary Carolyn Dumaresq.
