Professor John Burkoff told the Associated Press that the convictions of former state senator Jane Orie, PA Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin, and Janine Orie is a terrible downfall for the Orie family, a prominent political family in Western Pennsylvania.  According to Professor Burkoff, "whatever you thought about the Orie sisters, whether you liked them or didn't like them, you have to look at all of this as tragic."
