He was sworn in to represent the 114th legislative district in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1979. In 1999, he was convicted of federal perjury charges for lying in his federal grand jury testimony regarding a scheme involving his nephew to funnel $129,000 in illegal campaign contributions to 10 political candidates. He delayed resigning his seat once convicted, as was required by the Pennsylvania Constitution, in order to extend a 103-100 Republican majority in the House. He eventually resigned his seat on February 7, 2000.
