    You almost have to feel sorry for new Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf (D). The man’s just moved into Harrisburg, gotten his voice mail straightened out, starting to get a feel for the morning commute, and then WHAMM! – his (Democratic) Attorney General (Kathleen Kane) is on the verge of being indicted for perjury and his (Democratic) Treasurer (Rob McCord) is resigning, not to mention preparing to plead out on extortion charges:

    After an exhaustive eight month investigation, Kathleen Kane, Pennsylvania’s Democrat “Girl Wonder” Attorney General may finally be facing the criminal charges she so richly deserves. A Grand Jury has recommended Kane be indicted for perjury, false swearing, official oppression and obstruction of justice. While these crimes are serious when lodged against an ordinary public servant, they are bombshell quality when brought against a sitting State Attorney General. The charges stem from allegations that Kane leaked Grand Jury confidential memos in an effort to embarrass her Republican political enemies. Among those enemies was Tom Corbett who was the then State AG...

    Image from frontpage magazine. The current AG in Pennsylvania is Kathleen Kane.  She was elected in 2012, and is an avid disarmist.   She has gone so far as to say that she will not defend the recently passed gun reform bill from a lawsuit filed by PA cities.  The law targeted cities  that violate Pennsylvania gun law and citizens second amendment rights. She has been under investigation for leaking information from a Grand Jury in order to undercut a probe into corruption involving the head of the NAACP in Philadelphia.  From post-gazette.com: The investigation involved alleged financial improprieties of...

    A grand jury has recommended criminal charges against Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

PJ Media has been covering Kane’s refusal to prosecute Pennsylvania Democrats who took bribes in order to oppose photo voter identification legislation in Pennsylvania. Philly News : For about six months, Special Prosecutor Thomas E. Carluccio has been directing the grand jury as it has heard testimony from numerous witnesses, including Kane and many of her top aides, to determine how details of a long-ago investigation...

    Our own Christian Adams appeared on Fox & Friends today to explain the curious case of the scuttled bribery investigation in Pennsylvania. A bribery sting caught four Democrats accepting bribes for votes in the PA legislature; the Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane inherited the scandal investigation when she took office, and promptly scuttled it . She has even called the investigation “racist,” because while the investigation targeted Republicans and Democrats, white and black, only four black Democrats actually accepted the bribes. Adams lays out the facts. It’s a must-watch. Video: 3:24 minutes Philly Sting Shut Down - Democrats Allegedly Took...

    Kathleen G. King, Pennsylvania’s recently elected Attorney General, has decided to not file charges against 5 individuals accused of taking bribes in a sting operation begun in 2011. Tyron B. Ali, a lobyist, confidential informant and criminal himself argeed in a plea deal to wear a wire as he offered money to members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. By the time the sting ended, 4 Philadelphia politicians and former Traffic Court Judge Thomasine Tynes had taken up to $7,000 each for the sale of their political services, for example, by “voting against a bill that would require voters to...

    Pennsylvania Democrats reportedly were caught on tape accepting cash bribes, including one lawmaker who was paid to vote against a state voter identification law, but Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane shut down the investigation. "Before Kane ended the investigation, sources familiar with the inquiry said, prosecutors amassed 400 hours of audio and videotape that documented at least four city Democrats taking payments in cash or money orders, and in one case a $2,000 Tiffany bracelet," the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Typically, the payments made at any one time were relatively modest -- ranging from $500 to $2,000 -- but most of...

    The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office ran an undercover sting operation over three years that captured leading Philadelphia Democrats, including four members of the city's state House delegation, on tape accepting money, The Inquirer has learned. Yet no one was charged with a crime. Prosecutors began the sting in 2010 when Republican Tom Corbett was attorney general. After Democrat Kathleen G. Kane took office in 2013, she shut it down. In a statement to The Inquirer on Friday, Kane called the investigation poorly conceived, badly managed, and tainted by racism, saying it had targeted African Americans.

    Liberal Little Caesars: To the Left, the law is optional by Daniel Clark No wonder liberals think conservatives are simple-minded. Here we are, still going by the book in Civics 101, while they’re busily rewriting the rules to grant themselves far greater powers than are assigned to them by law. In a variation of Huey Long’s Depression-era jingle, they’re dancing to the tune, “Every Liberal a King.” If liberals lack the votes to stop a bill from passing, they may recruit activists to occupy the legislative chamber and disrupt the hearings. If that approach fails, then their legislators can flee...

    Pennsylvania attorney general refuses to defend state marriage law Philadelphia, Pa., Jul 13, 2013 / 08:10 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The attorney general of Pennsylvania has said she will not defend a state law defining marriage as a union of a man and a woman in court because she does not agree with it. Thomas Peters, a spokesman for the National Organization for Marriage, said the action shows that the recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings favoring same-sex unions “set a bad precedent” that will allow elected officials “to not represent the will of the people when they find it expedient.” Peters...

    Pennsylvania's AG Might Not Even Defend Their Gay Marriage Ban in Court Facing a lawsuit from the ACLU, it looks like Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is going to refuse to defend the state government's ban on gay marriage. Pennsylvania, the only state in the northeast without provisions for same-sex civil unions or marriages, was one of the first states with gay marriage bans targeted by a suit in the wake of the Supreme Court's partial striking of the Defense of Marriage Act. If it's true, the news, reported by the Philadelphia Daily News, based on multiple anonymous sources, isn't...

    Chris Matthews featured her as a "rising star," someone who with more seasoning might someday entertain a presidential run. But newly-elected Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane came across as more of a not-ready-for-prime-time-deer-in-the-headlights. Appearing on today's Hardball, Kane came out with this mind-boggler: "I think the people of Pennsylvania would accept a limit on the amount of clips. You know, I believe and I think a lot of people feel the same way that you don't have a right to go into a classroom and take down a class of children in under a minute." Really going out on a...
