Politics interfered with doing what was right

Posted by Patrick Schurr | October 24, 2016

As we worked through the session schedule today, word circulated about the sentencing of former AG Kathleen Kane: 10 to 23 months in the Montgomery County Jail and 8 years of probation.  She was also scolded by the judge for her conduct, and the warden at the jail said that she would not receive any preferential treatment.  Sounds like she will be in for a very difficult time.  I am reminded of the Senate’s vote on her removal months ago.  We went into the process in a bi-partisan manner, held hearings, worked through the testimony and legal issues with few problems, but lost the support of the Democrat caucus as it came time to vote.  Her time in office and the continued damage she caused could have been stopped then, but, unfortunately, politics interfered with doing what was right.
