    I will not comment, but-we elect this people, it's our fault. P.S.: Maybe I am missing something, she is a convicted felon and still has a state security team, fuck me!

    She was the first female and first Democrat Attorney General elected in Pennsylvania. The funny thing is the second story on the front page mentions the AG in Philadelphia failed to report $165,000 in gifts, including $45,000 for roofing and windows. Here is a link to the article in the Philly Inquirer.

    I guess the original thing with the 'Lady of Power' was all over sex emails??? Maybe she should have consulted Hillary on how to have beaten the case, I can only assume she did not. She is done.

    No, not about distributing pornography through state emails. But that evidence surfaced and two supreme court justices were caught with porn and exchanging misogynistic emails and resigned. Plus some other state officials.

    Right after she was sworn in as AG, she was being briefed about the top cases. One of the outgoing prosecutors (Frank Fina) filled her in about a sting operation that netted 5 corrupt Philly city officials who happened to be Democrats. Fina sent the case files to Feds and told the new Attorney General and staff that she would have a conflict and could not prosecute the case because she was a Democrat. She was pissed and Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. AG Kane closed up the investigation and squared off against the now former prosecutor Frank Fina. To get revenge, Kane leaked grand jury testimony to a Philly newspaper that was critical of Fina, she lied about it, and was caught. This is an oversimplification, within the article linked above, there are other links to earlier articles that provide other details.

    This prosecutor, Frank Fina, was also on the Jerry Sandusky case. Kane got elected by being critical of the handling of the Sandusky case, she thought it dragged on too long and there were a lot of pissed off Penn State Alumni who were angry, and she wanted their votes. She was elected in a landslide and was a rising star in the Democrat party.

    By the way, the former one term Republican Governor who lost in a landslide, Tom Corbett, was Attorney General from 2005-2011. As AG, Corbett convened a grand jury in 2009 to investigate Sandusky, but it took 3 years to get an indictment. Corbett didn't want a silly thing like the Sandusky case to get in the way of his goal of becoming governor and Corbett didn't want to alienate the Penn State alumni voters. Joe Paterno was more powerful than the Governor.

    Born here and lived here most of my life, but the Politics in Pennsylvania leave a lot to be desired. Many years ago, Governor Rendell while feeling flush with high tax receipts coming into the treasury decided to increase the pensions of state employees. We are now paying for these enhanced benefits with tax increases and deficits. Thankfully, the Casinos are kicking in a Billion $$ into the treasury or we would be in shit creek. The Ragin' Cajun himself, James Carville spoke of Pennsylvania: "you got Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and Alabama in between." Its home.
