Pedro Cortes served as Pennsylvania’s Secretary of the Commonwealth from 2003 to 2010 under Democrat Governor Ed Rendell. He “oversaw” Gosnell’s most frenzied period of misconduct, including:

… losing his admitting privileges at all local hospitals due to the number of seriously injured women being sent there by Gosnell; a two year lapse in Gosnell’s malpractice insurance; Gosnell being named as a defendant in 46 separate civil lawsuits; a number of six- and seven-figure awards against Gosnell; and, at least two women dying.

Following up on any of this would have led to the earlier discovery of the grisly conditions and illegal killing of babies. Instead, continuing the state’s neglect which began under the previous Republican Tom Ridge administration, there was no delay in license renewals.

And now, despite Gosnell’s convictions and the notorious scandal of his free rein for decades previously, newly elected Governor Tom Wolf has reappointed Cortes to the same job. Until the senate votes, he is acting secretary  once again.

While Tom Corbett (R) was the governor, Cortes was vice president of an election technology company, ironically called Everyone Counts.
