Their View | Pa. liquor officials drank for free

Former Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board CEO Joseph Conti made $156,000 annually until his retirement last year, followed by months of “emergency” service at $80 an hour, for a job that did not exist before or since. In that sense, he may have earned the title “Super CEO,” which was engraved on a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue presented to him by an executive with the alcohol giant Diageo, ethics officials found. “He seemed very appreciative,” the executive recounted. No wonder: The premium Scotch whisky retails for about $170 — or, at LCB prices, $230.
