Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane’s office named the eight recipients and showed reporters some of the pornographic material. The e-mails include photos and videos of women and men engaged in oral sex, anal sex, and intercourse with titles such as “Cigar,” “Chin strap,” “Golf Ball washer,” and “Rocking Horse.” The pornographic e-mails had were retrieved during Kane’s internal inquiry into how her predecessors handled the case of pedophile Jerry Sandusky. An official statement said: “Attorney General Kane believes it is in the public’s best interest to have a good understanding of how its public servants conduct their business. She also believes transparency on this issue is a very good way to help ensure that the exchanging of sexually explicit materials through internal e-mails on state-owned equipment during official work hours doesn’t happen elsewhere.”
Other porn mail recipients include former ranking prosecutors Patrick Blessington, who now works with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office; Glen Parno, former chief of the environmental crimes section of the Attorney General’s Office, who now works in the Department of Environmental Protection; Chris Carusone, who played a key role in corruption prosecutions of state legislators and was Corbett’s former liaison to the legislature; Richard A. Sheetz, former executive deputy attorney general in the office’s Criminal Law division; and retired agent Randy Feathers, the onetime regional director of the office’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigations There is no indication that Corbett, who served as attorney general until early 2011, was aware of the e-mail exchanges. But sources revealed that investigation has determined that many more state employees, including top jurists and 30 current employees of Kane’s office, were also involved in exchanging sexually explicit e-mails.
