Gov. Corbett was repeatedly interrupted by protesters representing a variety of interests during a town-hall meeting Wednesday night at the Philadelphia Museum of Art organized by a conservative talk-radio host.
WPHT's Dom Giordano ended the event a half-hour earlier than its planned 90 minutes when it became clear that Corbett could not answer questions without being shouted at inside the Van Pelt Auditorium. Police removed more than 10 people from the meeting.
At one point, protesters interrupted the program for seven minutes. Several groups unfurled banners and chanted against expanding the state prison system: "Fund education, not incarceration."
There were shouts against Corbett's support of Marcellus Shale drilling, his cuts in welfare, his funding of education, and his signing of a death warrant for Terrance Williams, who is to be executed Oct. 3.
