5. You forgot Rep Don Sherwood from PA-10 and PA state Rep Tom Druce
Don Sherwood
Cheated on his wife and assaulted his mistress.

PA State Rep Tom Druce
Was cruising the streets of Harrisburg late night with another woman when he hit a man with his car. He didn't stop to check to see who/what he had hit - if he did the man that he hit may still be alive. Instead he had the car damage repaired by the local bodyshop and then turned the car lease in early for a replacement one.

After receiving his new vehicle Druce went on his merry way, presumably without another thought to the crumpled body of Kenneth Cains, until an anonymous tipster sent police investigators a Christmas card months later implicating Druce as the hit-and-run perpetrator.

Telling police he thought he hit a sign, and then claiming to his insurance company that he hit a barrel on the turnpike, Druce weaseled as long as he could until investigators found the Jeep's bumper, still at Malcolm's shop, still crusted with Cains' hair, blood, and clothing. Druce then struck a deal with prosecutors: He'd plead guilty to evidence tampering, insurance fraud and leaving the scene of a fatal accident. In exchange, prosecutors dropped the most serious charge, vehicular homicide. Dauphin County Judge Joseph Kleinfelter subsequently sentenced him to two to four years in prison, which normally would be the end of the story. It's not
