Former Hillary Campaign Staffer Was Hauled Away In Cuffs

Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, an elected Democrat who worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, is headed to prison for up to nearly two years. She was convicted on nine felony counts in a case involving a shocking abuse of power aimed at a political foe.

Kane leaked grand jury secrets in a plot to discredit a rival who she believed was responsible for a negative newspaper article.

Via the Morning Call:

Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane will spend up to two years behind bars followed by probation that will keep her under court supervision for nearly a decade for crimes she committed in pursuit of retribution against political foes.

“This case is about ego, ego of a politician consumed with her image from Day One,” Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy said during Kane’s sentencing Monday in Montgomery County Court. “And instead of focusing solely on the business of fighting crime, her focus was on defeating these perceived enemies.”

Demchick-Alloy noted Kane, once a rising Democratic Party star, ascended quickly to become the state’s top law enforcement officer, arriving as a political novice and neophyte. Kane, however, failed to make the transition from politician to public servant once she took office, the judge said.

Demchick-Alloy noted Kane’s crimes, orchestrating the release of secret information about an abandoned fraud probe targeting a Philadelphia civil rights leader and lying about it under oath, damaged the backbone of Pennsylvania’s justice system.

Here she is being hauled away in cuffs …

Kane not only served on Hillary’s campaign in 2008, but Bill Clinton cut an endorsement ad for her own primary election in 2012.

Here he is actively pressing the flesh for her on the campaign trail.

 

She was also viewed as a possible Senate contender for 2016. The following entry in Wikileaks shows that the Pennsylvania senate seat was considered the 4th most important race in 2016.  The notes are pretty remarkable, as Hillary’s campaign says the criminal charges aren’t “huge news” because “these problems have been going on for a while now.”

It does, according to the email, indicate the Democrats have “a recruiting question.”

Namely, why are their candidates so prone to being willing to commit crimes? Maybe it starts at the top with the Democrat Party?
