New Charges Filed Against State Sen. Jane Orie

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — New charges have been filed against State Sen. Jane Orie.

District Attorney Stephen Zappala has filed 16 additional counts against her.

The discovery of a forged signature on office documents led Judge Jeffery Manning to declare a mistrial in the original Orie case.

The new charges include two counts of forgery, six counts of perjury, six counts of tampering with or fabricating evidence, one count of obstructing the administration of justice and one count of improper campaign reporting.

These charges include both felonies and misdemeanors.

The DA claims that Orie tried to exonerate herself from responsibility by submitting a forged document that appears to have her chief of staff take the fall for campaign work in her office.

The forgery counts accuse Orie of knowingly submitting that forged document in court while the perjury counts accuse Orie of lying under oath about her campaign headquarters.

    Witch hunt or not. Hear that all the time. Bottom line is she will walk . Use that money for potholes

    There’s no such thing as a dishonest politician is there? I think the Democrats should run her for higher office. What’s a little forgery, perjury, tampering and fabricating etc. etc., among friends? It just builds your resume.

    Guilty as hell!

    Little Steve can’t seem to put murders away, but he’ll keep after the Ories until he gets even

      I agree. He really is looking for any excuse to try her. It has been so on-going, I forget even what she did! Is (was) it that bad?

    2. BOO HOO says:

      That’s little Steve’s job to file charges against corrupt individuals, like Orie.
      The age of corrupt Commies is over.
