Former Pennsylvania Auditor General’s official portrait features lightsaber and football helmet


(WHTM) — Former Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale released his official portrait on Wednesday, complete with a green lightsaber and college football helmet.

DePasquale, who served as auditor general for eight years, released the portrait a year after his term as Pennsylvania’s auditor general ended in January 2021.

In a Tweeter accompanying the portrait, DePasquale said he had dreamed of being a Jedi Knight since he was 6 years old, and that being Pennsylvania’s Auditor General allowed him to “achieve” that dream.

That and the life lessons of football where you get knocked down and have to get back up are reflected in today’s portrait unveiling. Thank you to everyone who helped me serve.

DePasquale’s football helmet comes from his alma mater Wooster College, where he earned a letter in football in their 1992 season.
