PA State Rep. Charged in Anthrax Hoax
KDKA: State Rep. Charged in Anthrax Hoax: "[PA] State Rep. Jeffrey E. Habay was charged Wednesday for allegedly lying about a white powder he said he received in the mail from a constituent who was critical of him."
[Essentially, the State Rep. put the powder in the letter and claimed it was an anthrax attack against him.]
"Habay, a five-term Allegheny County Republican, is already awaiting trial on ethics charges. He was charged last year with theft of service and conflict of interest for allegedly using his staff to campaign on state time."
