    Someone the other day alluded to Fina’s involvement in the Salvation Army case – suggesting it was Fina that gave immunity to the white guy so they could prosecute the Black guy. Is that true? Can anyone shed light on this?

  3. Pat Unger says:

    Actually, H3, our futile defense of Kane may be coming to an end. Her top deputies are telling the OAG staff that Kane is simply wrong about the Feudale emails and that Kane broke the law (again). That’s plenty of reason for the Senate to remove her. Oh well, I guess we can keep trying to change the subject to Fina, but that works about as well as Penn State’s offensive line.

    The REAL buzz:

    Fina & The Corbett Pervs are running scared … including Judge Feudale, who brandished a knife at the AG’s Office after AG Kane moved to remove him from the Grand Jury. That Motion was Granted, BTW.

    Feudale’s e-mails must be seriously damning. The Pervs have been scurrying to keep them under wraps.

    Kane needs to give them to Wikileaks. That way we all can see them … and finally know what Fina was up to when he thought he wouldn’t/couldn’t get caught.

    They say that a man should be judged on what he does when he thinks no one is looking. Here is what Frank Fina does … He sends e-mails like this:
