PA Attorney General Kathleen Kane, arguably the most corrupt politician in America not named Clinton, was sentenced to prison this week after being found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice.
A judge sentenced former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane on Monday to 10 to 23 months in prison for committing multiple felonies stemming from a politically motivated act of retribution.
Kane, who resigned after her conviction of perjury and obstruction in August, also will be on probation for eight years following her release.
Kane, a Democrat who was elected in 2012, faced a possible 12-24 years in prison, according to Kate Delano, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
The charges had alleged that Kane acted in anger about a local newspaper article that accused her of dropping an investigation into politicians accepting bribes. To get back at her predecessors, the complaint said Kane leaked sealed, confidential grand jury documents to the media and then lied under oath.
Like Barack Obama and (maybe) Hillary Clinton, Kathleen Kane was a political “first.” PA voters selected this stupid broad partially because she was a woman, and partially because her predecessor – Republican Tom Corbett – was terribly unpopular. This, my friends, is what happens when you vote for something historic instead of someone deserving.
Pennsylvania’s first female Attorney General will go down in history as one of the most corrupt politicians the state ever had. That brings a smile to my face.
