Anyone who has worked on projects that have the PA GC is a reviewing agency knows that his dealing with gas projects does give the appearance of a conflict of interest. When I left my job as Section Chief for similar projects with DEP to join the ranks of "The Soon to Be Dead", I was contacted several times during the next year by the State ethics staff regarding my attendance at Public meetings dealing with Marcellus Gas issues.

In this case, he could get a raw deal for the state to gain advantage on private contracts giving him an unfair advantage over other private contract negotiators. But when your whole thought process is that Corbett is always wrong, you can miss things like that.

Capouillez has a clear conflict of interest in his dealings. Had he recused himself, he would be an honorable man. Instead, he engaged in the same cronyism that is destroying our commonwealth piece by piece.

Capouillez is under investigation by the State Senate Ethics Commission.
