What if elected officials were caught on tape accepting bribes in exchange to vote against legislation? What if these officials accepted cash or money orders? What is there was over 400 HOURS of damning recordings of these bribes? Well, if you’re in PA, and the offenders are democrats, you have nothing to fear-line your pockets with ease. You see, Diane Kane, the democratic AG, will simply end the investigation, and you can accept all the bribes you like! PJ Media has more…
Despite this evidence, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has not charged any officials. Kane is a Democrat.
Kane’s excuse for her inaction? Racism: some of the legislators caught on tape accepting bribes were black Democrats from Philadelphia. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
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.
Those who favored the sting believe Kane killed a solid investigation, led by experienced prosecutor Frank G. Fina, that had ensnared several public officials and had the potential to capture more. They said they were outraged at Kane’s allegation that race had played a role in the case.
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.
Fine — a Pennsylvania Democrat won’t do anything about other corrupt Pennsylvania Democrats. But what about Eric Holder? After all, Holder has shown a tough-as-nails willingness to go after elected officials who accept gifts in exchange for official actions.
Well, there you have it. If you’re into graft, move to PA and get yourself elected. Then, freely accept bribes, and your fellow democrats will call it “raaaaacism,” and sweep it under the table.
And who knows, even if you’re caught in a sting, you can still keep the money!
