A former Montgomery County elected official who admitted hiding income from the Internal Revenue Service has reported to prison. 41-year-old former Skippack Township Supervisor Mark Marino pleaded guilty to filing false income tax returns several months ago in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, and he will serve 13 months at a medium-security federal prison in Schuylkill County. He must also pay the IRS more than $76,000 in restitution.
He and 39-year-old former Limerick Township Supervisor David Kane were partners in Kane Core Incorporated, a real estate development firm. A federal indictment said they used corporate funds to pay their personal expenses including housekeepers, a strip club, sports tickets and vacations, and did not report the payments to the IRS. Marino is the son of former Montgomery County Commissioner and District Attorney Mike Marino.
