A major public corruption case is brewing in Pennsylvania

The state's former auditor general and state treasurer, Barbara Hafer has just been indicted for reportedly lying to federal authorities in their "pay to play" investigation of state government.

The scandal could cost Hafer her pension and even her freedom.   

The U.S. Attorney's office says the one-time powerful politician hid more than half a million dollars in consulting fees from investigators.

Good-government watchdogs say there is an epidemic of public corruption cases like this one permeating the Pennsylvania state capital, and it's got to stop.
