Pa. AG shuts down corruption sting when too many fellow Dems caught redhanded
http://libertyunyielding.com ^ | march 17, 2014 | Colin Flaherty

It started as a plea arrangement between a lobbyist arrested for fraud and the Republican attorney general of the state of Pennsylvania. And it ended not with a bang but a whimper by the new Democratic attorney general, who shut down the investigation without filing a single charge.

Philly.com quotes Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who took office in 2013, as telling the Inquirer that the investigation was “poorly conceived, badly managed, and tainted by racism, saying it had targeted African Americans.”

The undercover sting, begun three years ago by Kane’s predecessor, Republican Tom Corbett, captured leading Philadelphia Democrats, including four local members of the state’s House delegation, on tape accepting money. The lobbyist who agreed to wear a wire and tape officials reacting to offers of cash and/or gifts is Tyron B. Ali, 40, who was arrested in a $430,000 fraud case.

“Sources with knowledge of the sting said the investigation made financial pitches to both Republicans and Democrats, but only Democrats accepted the payments,” said the Inquirer.

"...and tainted by racism, saying it had targeted African Americans

Are African Americans suddenly above investigation? Maybe if the word "unfairly" was inserted in there the statment might not seem so odd.

The AG won’t even defend the Constitution and Laws of PA. She should resign or be Impeached.

Another crooked PA Democrat. She recently declared that she won’t defend the state’s ban against gay marriage.

Shades of Eric Holder.

This is how Democrats behave when they win elections. If they win more elections, it will get worse. Voters don’t seem to understand this and they will pay a big price if they don’t figure it out.

What? Taking money on the side is illegal?

Who would of have thought?

What is a lobbyist to do? Who can they pay off? How is the system to work?

The purpose of the Democrat party is to elect thieves to office so that they have access to public treasuries in order to loot them.

What makes you think voters have anything to do with it?

You think county election offices are clean when they are situated with a large democrat urban area that is controlled by unions?

Same reason Dems had the captured Iraqi records taken out of the public view. Afraid McDermott’s name would show up multiple times.

Do you mean that Democrats are ignoring what the voters want and manipulating the outcomes of elections to ensure that they remain in power? I’m shocked, it can’t be so. Surely Attorney General Holder is doing something about this.

Even though this was a state operation, I bet it was checked with State (Holder).

> “In the Brown exchange, Ali paid a visit to the representative in her office and “handed her an envelope with $2,000, according to people who have reviewed a transcript of a tape Ali made on that day.”

I’ll have to check on whether PA constitution allows for recall. She is a dem piece of garbage. Said she would not support PA’s marriage statute that codifies marriage between one man and one woman.
