State Rep Jim Christiana Calling For Investigation Into “Pay To Play” Scheme at County Courthouse

State Representative Jim Christiana is calling for an investigation into a possible “pay to play” scheme at the Beaver County courthouse. Christiana appeared on “Teleforum”  with Mike Romigh this morning, talking about accusations he has made against Beaver County Commissioner Sandie Egley’s secretary. Christiana claims that, based on what his sources have told him, Egley’s assistant – Randi Bick – told supporters that larger campaign contributions were needed in order to do business with the county. Christiana met with Egley for more than 30 minutes on Friday and presented her with the information and asked her to take care of it. Bick denies the allegations. Christiana emphasized he isn’t pointing the finger at Egley herself; he just wants her to look into the matter.
