HARRISBURG — As the state’s top prosecutor, Tom Corbett put more than two dozen legislative aides and lawmakers behind bars. 

As governor, he finds himself handcuffed for refusing to dole out discretionary legislative grants. 
For decades, governors of both political parties handed out millions in grants earmarked by legislators and then buried in the budgets of executive branch agencies — a practice begun on a much smaller scale under Republican Gov. Dick Thornburgh and former House Democratic leader Jim Manderino.
