Legislators Boil Over $220,000. Game Commission Payment To Carl Roe

Retired Pa. Game Commission chief to get $220K severance payment

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
By Brad Bumsted

HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Game Commission plans to give its retired executive director $220,000, which a top lawyer to Gov. Tom Corbett calls an “improper severance agreement” that would drain resources from sportsmen's programs.

The payment to Carl Roe of Carlisle is awaiting approval by the state Attorney General's Office for “form and legality.”

Roe, who retired on Jan. 17, could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane's office is seeking “clarity” on certain issues and awaits a response from the commission, said her spokesman Joe Peters. The office will have 30 days to decide, he said.

“It's unconscionable they would be using public dollars from sportsmen and hunters to pay a severance package to a former employee,” said Jay Pagni, a spokesman for Corbett.

This is beyond troubling and demands a full investigation.

Over the years, the Deer Eradication Program has brought in 100's of Millions of Dollars for the Game Commission.

The cost to Northcentral Pennsylvanians has been devastating both economically and heritage wise.

Roe gets a kickback like an average low life pimp.

WOW! Talk about FRAUD! Same old gameless commission. Payment for the role he played in the deerless plan no doubt! And the bill footed by US! And not only that, comes with a requirement of secrecy! Unreal. Just when you think they cant sink any lower.

Maybe every state government official, from the governor on down, should publish the amount of retirement payments and benefits that each of them will receive for life after they leave public office? Those payments come from every taxpayer's pocket.

Just saying...

Corbett can't stand anyone else being corrupt but he sure doesn't mind being corrupt himself! Imagine that!
