It is illegal to use stateresources for campaigns.While Nutt and Harley reiterated Monday that Corbett requires any campaign tasksto be done0ff the clock, Morganelli said his foe has political operatives on the state payroll andit's "a big blur.""You have to separate the political people from the job," Morganelli said.Morganelli, the Northampton County district attorney, said staffers in his countyoffice do not campaign for him, though he admitted one might have circulatednominating petitions for him in the past.
