NORRISTOWN, Pa. —Former state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, left a courtroom in handcuffs on Monday after getting a 10- to 23-month sentence having been convicted of multiple crimes including felony perjury and an assortment of misdemeanors related to a leak of secret grand jury materials. Kane had advanced her career with the assistance of the Clinton machine.
In the 2012 attorney general primary, Kane ran against former Bucks County Congressman Patrick Murphy, who was among Barack Obama’s earliest endorsers. Murphy had crossed the Clintons’ by endorsing Barack Obama in 2008 and found himself facing a candidate with the backing of Bill and Hillary Clinton who quickly set out to even the score against Murphy. The Clinton’s dived into fundraising, robocalling, cutting ads and lined up the usual suspects to campaign on her behalf. The Clintons’ were pitted against Obama who sent his strategist David Axelrod to stump for Murphy. Kane won, and she became the Clinton’s’ “it girl” in Pennsylvania. Hillary has since abandoned her as the race between her and Trump tightens in the state.
OUR FREE OPINION
The Clinton retaliation against Murphy is what you would expect from them: The Clintons’ have always been vindictive and evil towards people they perceive to have betrayed either of them. They are also known for abandoning people who have supported them and then fallen into a negative light. Because Pennsylvania is is a swing state, and because Kane was charged with crimes (and now convicted), the Clintons’ can’t distance themselves from her fast enough. That is the way they operate– fair weather “friends.” There is also the thing about Kane’s improper use of emails that is too close to Hillary Clinton’s alleged criminal use of her government email systems. With friends like the Clintons’, you don’t need enemies.
