HARRISBURG, Pa. — Governor Tom Corbett held a Wednesday morning press conference to clarify his remarks about unemployed people being on drugs made on Radio PA’s “Ask the Governor” program.
In regard to Pennsylvania’s slippage from 7 to 49th in job growth since 2011, Corbett made a statement accompanied by a dramatic (and unforgettable) visual.
“Cake is too good for the unemployed people of this state,” he said. “And besides, none of ’em can afford it anyway. Instead, I say, let them drink piss!”
With that, the Governor ceremoniously unbuckled and unzippered his pants as aides handed him a urine specimen cup, which he filled and then promptly raised.
Specimen cups with Corbett’s campaign logo were then distributed among attendees in the crowd.
“Cheers to the hardworking people of Pennsylvania, who are putting us back to work!”
