Republican Tom Marino, who defeated Democratic Rep. Christopher Carney in 2010, is a former prosecutor who cultivates an image at home as an aggressive guardian of taxpayer interests. “There are few as tough as Tom Marino,” a 2012 campaign ad boasted. Outside his district, he’s become known for his headline-grabbing remarks— not all of them positive headlines.

Marino was born and raised in Williamsport, Pa. His father was a janitor and a firefighter, and his mother was a homemaker. After high school, Marino held jobs in manufacturing and managed a bakery for several years before deciding to enroll at Williamsport Area Community College at age 30. He went on to earn a law degree from Penn State University’s Dickinson School of Law. He started out with a local law firm, and then in 1992 was elected district attorney for Lycoming County, a post he held until 2002. That year, he was appointed as the U.S. attorney for Pennsylvania’s Middle District, which includes Scranton and Harrisburg.

One of the cases he was involved in as a federal prosecutor became an issue in his congressional campaign. Marino once served as a reference for Louis DeNaples on an application for a gambling license for the Mount Airy Casino Resort while his office was investigating DeNaples on another matter. After Marino resigned as U.S. attorney in October 2007, he took a job as an in-house counsel for DeNaples on some of his non-casino businesses. When his role in the application surfaced during the campaign, Marino said that he had received authorization from his employer, the Justice Department, which, according to the Associated Press, was untrue. Marino then said that although he never asked for permission, his role at the time was understood to be aboveboard and ethical as long as he didn’t use his job title in the reference.

There was also negative reaction to a video clip of Marino shouting at protesters outside a campaign event in Williamsport. “What do you do for a job?” and “What kind of welfare are you on?” he demanded. But Marino received some public sympathy when he was hospitalized after a head-on collision involving a car whose operator was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

In the Republican primary in May, Marino defeated retired chiropractor David Madeira and Snyder County Commissioner Malcolm Derk. His connection to DeNaples was a factor in his bitterly negative campaign against Carney, who raised questions about his character and trustworthiness. But in a strong Republican year, Marino won, 55% to 45%.

In the House, Marino has been generally conservative, although he voted against a number of his fellow freshman Republicans’ efforts to cancel some federal programs, including subsidies to rural airports. He introduced a measure to bar people from attending animal fights that drew 227 cosponsors but did not advance in the 112th Congress (2011-12), leading Marino to reintroduce it in 2013.

Some of his statements generated controversy. After President Barack Obama authorized military force in Libya in 2011, Marino said of the African nation, “Where does it stop? Do we go into Africa next?” That led The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno to quip, “So you see why he’s not on the Intelligence Committee.” Marino also drew attention for a tweet after Superstorm Sandy devastated parts of the East Coast in 2012: “Happy Halloween and Happy Belated Monday to all of you lucky stiffs who haven’t been to work yet this week.” The tweet was quickly deleted, and he said his account had been “improperly accessed.” During the Homeland Security Committee’s 2011 hearings on Muslim extremism, Marino got into a shouting match with Rep. Al Green, D-Texas.

In 2012, Marino rolled to a 66%-34% win over Democrat Phil Scollo, an insurance consultant who got off to a late start. Carney told The Daily Item of Sunbury in March 2013, “The problem is, he has no one in the 10th District to challenge him. So he gets away with just saying things.” Marino shot back, “If Chris Carney would have listened to the people he represented instead of Obama and (Minority Leader Nancy) Pelosi, maybe his political prospects would be brighter today.”

Back to top NJ Vote Ratings

National Journal’s rating system is an objective method of analyzing voting. The liberal score means that the lawmaker’s votes were more liberal than that percentage of his colleagues’ votes. The conservative score means his votes were more conservative than that percentage of his colleagues’ votes. The composite score is an average of a lawmaker’s six issue-based scores.

Two organizations provide just one combined rating for 2011 and 2012, the two sessions of the 112th Congress. They are the ACLU and the ITIC. About the interest groups.
