The Difference Between Onorato and Tom Corbett is featuring a story about Onorato's attacks on AG Tom Corbett for issuing subpoenas of Twitter accounts rumored to be authored by convicted Bonusgate defendant Brett Cott.

Asked if he’d do it again, the candidate then indicated he might.

“20/20 hindsight, would we go after it?” Corbett asked. “I think it depends on the situation at the time.”

The Onorato campaign, which has criticized the subpoenas before, highlighted the exchange in a press release Wednesday titled “Corbett All Atwitter Again.” The release also criticized the attorney general for suggesting the state should lay off teachers and firefighters if that’s necessary to balance the budget, a scenario Governor Ed Rendell has alluded might happen if the state doesn’t receive nearly $550 million in federal medical assistance.

Corbett argued that the state needs to cut costs just like the private sector and families have done to “bring its fiscal house in order.”

Back to the chart from the Pennsylvania Independent. Looks like Onorato needs to go back to the drawing board on this one.
