(Harrisburg) -- The Dauphin County district attorney says he'll review findings that three former top officials at the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board accepted thousands of dollars in gifts, liquor, dinners and golf trips.
DA Ed Marsico says he expects to get the case because state Attorney General Kathleen Kane has a conflict of interest.
Kane's husband's family company has a long-standing business relationship with the Liquor Control Board, handling its Scranton-area distribution center and its mid-Atlantic inbound trucking contract.
The contracts are worth more than $12 million a year.
State law doesn't allow LCB members and staff to accept any gifts from the industry it regulates.
The Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission this week ordered the three former officials pay the state more than $23,000.
