Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell last week nominated attorney A. Michael Pratt to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s board after removing Mitchell Rubin from the five-member panel.

The governor ended Rubin’s tenure as commissioner after a federal jury on March 16 found former Sen. Vincent Fumo guilty on 137 counts of political corruption charges, including paying Rubin $150,000 for a no-show Senate job. Rubin became a commissioner in 1998 and was appointed chairman in 2003.
