    A BIG BATCH of porny emails may be the very last thing Gov. Corbett, trailing badly in the polls to Democrat Tom Wolf, needs to hear about right now.

    Stephanie Seibert, a management major from Pittsburgh, unpacks in her dorm room during freshman move-in day at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014, in Johnstown, Pa.
