The Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission has issued a final adjudication in the following matter under The Ethics Law




Order No. 1598 (MELLOW)

Pennsylvania State Senator

22nd Senatorial District

Lackawanna, Luzerne & Monroe County, Pennsylvania



As a Pennsylvania State Senator, Robert Mellow’s actions in 2007 in authorizing the continuation of a Senate lease regarding the location of his senatorial district office from Brad, Inc., a business with which he was associated in 2007, when his divorce was finalized, resulted in a transgression of Section 1103(a) of the Pubic Official and Employee Ethics Act, 65 Pa.C.S. § 1103(a).

Per the Consent Agreement of the parties, Mellow is directed to make payment in the amount of $21,00.00 payable to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and forwarded to the State Ethics Commission by no later than the thirtieth (30th) day after the mailing date of the Commission’s Order.

Mellow is further directed to not accept any reimbursement, compensation or other payment from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania representing a full or partial reimbursement of the amount paid in settlement of this matter.
