Police: Harrisburg Lobbyist Arrested On Rape Charges

By Kim Glovas

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia Police say a high-powered Harrisburg lobbyist has been arrested for an alleged rape which happened last month in Center City.

Police say Andrew Marsico is charged with rape and other crimes in connection with an incident on August 21st.

According to police, the alleged victim, a 27-year-old woman, met Marsico at an event at the Union League that night. Police say the two then left and went to Marsico's office at the Bellevue, apparently for the young woman to have a job interview. The alleged incident happened inside Marsico's office at 10 p.m.

"We are at this point reviewing the charges and allegations that have been set forth," says Attorney Fortunato Perry, who is representing Marsico.

Marsico is a lobbyist with Greenlee Partners -- one of the largest lobbying firms in Harrisburg. He is married to 6ABC reporter Annie McCormick. The two were married by former Governor Ed Rendell last year. Marsico is also the brother of Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico.
