    Kane reminded me of Sarah Palin, a 30 second sound bite and then nothing there. Kane was driven by ambition and the limelight with no idea of what she was doing. There is something to be said of the old days when the party elders (bosses) groomed and positioned candidates with a sense of responsibility. Back then Kane would have been allowed to run for school director but never AG.

    BULL’S-EYE!

    “Kane has been sentenced to the worst fate of all…having to live with herself.”

    “Had dinner last night with a legal-insider who conveyed the impression that Martina was conceptually spot-on:”

    As has been said elsewhere ==what we do in life echoes in eternity. and Kane has been sentenced to the worst fate of all…having to live with herself…

  9. rsklaroff says:

    Had dinner last night with a legal-insider who conveyed the impression that Martina was conceptually spot-on:

    “Maybe she can spend the next 30 yrs recreating herself with books and talk shows or perhaps that has already been tried by Nixon and failed.
    The Greeks would have loved her as an example of human nature gone wrong and sadly she has no Shakespeare to immortalize her.”

    Notwithstanding the defensive bluster from her four PoliticsPA resolute supporters [d2, Ha3, Unsanctioned R(etard), gulagPittsburgh], the bottom-line is that she surprisingly/unnecessarily sacrificed the public-trust [and a bright personal/political future] on her egocentric-petard [along with HER decision to file to end a previously-successful marriage].

    She’ll beoutin 8 weeks if that. Crying out loud she’s loaded!

  11. Unsanctioned R says:

    I demand an investigation into the leaks coming out of Montgomery County.

    I’m also thrilled that the leaker (et cetera) at the top of the Pennsylvania justice system was made an example of and sent to jail.

    @ d2:

    I’m not in a position to demand anything, but [unlike you] I am able to assess what’s known cogently and in a disinterested fashion; I don’t hate anyone, but disagree with your overt disdain for the court-system and the applicable-statute.

  14. David Diano says:

    rsklaroff-

    I’ve attacked the corruption of the court system for years, long before the Kane case.

    You, on the other hand, are actively ignoring the selective and political prosecution in this case, because you just hate Kane, women in power, and Dems in general.

    Why aren’t you DEMANDING an investigation into the leaks of Montco grand jury against Kane?

  15. rsklaroff says:

    @ d2:

    To update your conclusions…not only do you disregard statute, but you also attack the court; this constitutes quite a reaction to KK’s sentencing.

  16. David Diano says:

    bungy-

    R-Judge Eakin ruled against Kane, and then tried covering up his own emails with former campaign worker misrepresenting himself as independent reviewer of Eakin’s emails. That’s text-book corruption and judicial misconduct, and far worse than what Kane was charged with. How can she be in jail when he isn’t? (hint: biased/corrupt system)

    SpongeBob-

    Why should anyone care if she lied about a misdemeanor offense (and no one care that the witness against her, and perpetrators, were pressured to change their testimonies, and no one investigated the leaks of her grand jury)?

    Lying about whether you committed the charges against you shouldn’t be a separate crime. By that standard, pleading “not guilty” would be a lie. The job of the prosecution is to prove they committed whatever crime they are charged with, and shouldn’t be about whether they lied about committing it.

    “Threatening” people that disagreed with her is an overstatement. Being perceived as a bad boss isn’t criminal.

    “The most corrupt politician”? Are you f*cking kidding? Did she take a bribe? Falsely imprison people? Collude with prosecutors to fabricate evidence? Racially target sting operations? Did she skim drugs from drug busts or evidence rooms and sell them on the streets?

    robert sklaroff-

    I didn’t recant anything. I’ve been saying the process was corrupt and invalid for over a year, especially since Montco never investigated the leaks of their own grand jury.

  17. bungy says:

    Hey Sponge, I think you mean SEAMUS E-mails. She lied about who the REAL SENDERS WERE to try to protect HER D PALS. It will ALL come out SOON.

  18. SpongeBob says:

    David,
    She lied, and got caught doing it. End of story. She had people orchestrating a cover up. She threatened anyone who disagreed with her. And I say again if I this was a republican you would not care one bit. You want so much to believe the idiotic things you spout but it’s a pack of lies. Your chosen one to clean up the AG’s office will go down as on if the most corrupt politicians in pa history. I am still waiting for all those facts and figures other than Finas email that shows the office was a cesspool.

  19. robert sklaroff says:

    @ Observer 2:

    Your assertion [“You just made my point. If you are unaware, then that leaves only the three possibilities I originally mentioned. In other words, every time the question has been asked, it was a perjury trap.”] is incomplete for, despite what people may say, you claim there could be deceit; I say that at least one individual who may have been asked that question [no, I don’t have a cite] would have claimed that he/she wouldn’t have engaged in such behavior [and not have lied when saying this]…yielding the 4th alternative.

  20. robert sklaroff says:

    @ d2:

    You deftly morphed from “there is no legitimate court system” to “challenging” the MontCo Courthouse; it took only 20 minutes for you to have recanted your prior claim.

  21. bungy says:

    David the most egregious e-mails were sent out by a D JUDGE, so stop the GOP did it lies. You will find all this out in the coming weeks, when your best pal and savior GANSLER severely disappoints you. David you as well as the idiots in the media will have egg on your faces when you realize that you all printed the CRIMINAL KANE LIES without any REAL(key word being REAL)proof. She lied and all of you sheep believed The CRIMINAL KANE.

  23. David Diano says:

    robert sklaroff-

    No. I’m challenging the legitimacy of the PA court-system (particularly in Montco).

    Don’t forget, we had a Supreme Court judge Eakin who hid his own emails and used a former member of his campaign to pose as an “independent reviewer”. Eakin had ruled against Kane earlier, demonstrating his bias (and desire to cover his actions). Fortunately, Kane exposed him.

    How many other biased rulings had Eakin made that we’ll never know about?

    How about that judge that was basically selling kids for cash to for-profit juvenile detention centers?

    We’ve got a huge for-profit prison industry in Pennsylvania. It’s doubtful that only one judge in the entire state has been getting kickbacks.

    I live in Delaware county with a very corrupt all-GOP courthouse that uses party affiliations and payoffs to move cases forward on the docket.

    So, yeah, I do question the system.

  24. Observer 2 says:

    @sklaroff,

    You just made my point. If you are unaware, then that leaves only the three possibilities I originally mentioned. In other words, every time the question has been asked, it was a perjury trap.

    @Diano,

    Thanks. Interesting idea that Kane cannot get a fair appeal because she’s decimated the appellate organ that would potentially hear her appeal. Seems they should all recuse, not for their own conflicts but for the conflict the court as a whole has developed. Hard to say though – it’s now a very Democratic court, and some of them owe their existence to Kane.

    @aaron,

    Not yet, but were the Feds were asking about the crab fries?

  25. Unsanctioned R(etard) says:

    Shut up, sklaroff. Go eat your Jello.

  26. robert sklaroff says:

    @ d2:

    If you feel “You can’t be “guilty” when there is no legitimate court system,” then you are challenging American jurisprudence; this should be added to your extensive list of over-the-edge positions, from which you deduce your faulty assertions.

  27. aaron says:

    Has corrupt Seth Williams been indicted by the Feds yet?

  28. David Diano says:

    robert sklaroff-

    It’s never been about “guilt”, since the GOP and her enemies were only ever interested in removing her from office, covering their own misbehavior and then revenging themselves upon her for what she exposed.

    You can’t be “guilty” when there is no legitimate court system, you can only be convicted/imprisoned. She’s in jail because the misdemeanor of leaking wasn’t a jail-able offense, so they had to trump up perjury, and a malicious/selective prosecution (and ignore the leaks of their own grand jury).

    The “make an example of her” and “send a message” motivation for locking her up denies her her basic civil rights by tying her punishment to the hypothetical actions of future officials and attempting to whitewash their own refusal to investigate their own leaks and lack of interest in pursuing them.

  29. robert sklaroff says:

    @ d2:

    In the process of opining it’s “outrageous,” you admit she’s guilty.

    I reply that [1]–I’m glad you concur that I “got” you, and [2]–I’m unaware of any such Q&A.

  31. bungy says:

    David get ready for a lot of apologies. Talk about railroaded.

  32. David Diano says:

    bungy-

    Are you denying that Fina was exposed for his racist emails? (like the infamous one about the bucket of chicken?)

  33. bungy says:

    Exposed by who David? Kane . It was all LIES. NEVER verified by anyone but LYING CRIMINAL KANE. I didn’t have to see the report. Some people were already notified.

  34. David Diano says:

    bungy-

    Have you seen the report? Why aren’t her enemies mentioned (because Fina was already exposed)?

    Observer 2-

    I’d like to ask the prosecutors about all the exculpatory evidence they regularly suppress, and racial choices in sentencing.

    BTW, excellent points on scaling the perjury penalties.

    robert sklaroff-
    “guilty as sin”?? For misdemeanor leaking that is a slap on the wrist? The perjury and incarceration are outrageous.

    You base your views on the law? LOL. Try basing them on science, morality, rationality instead of your bigotry and distorted view to use the law for revenge or political assassination.

    Marie-

    It’s hard for Kane to win on appeal with the corrupt judiciary in PA that resents Kane exposing their collusion and perversions with prosecutors.

    Julie-

    Interesting about the new DA. He has certainly caved to pressure to over-zealously pursue Kane. The Cosby case has problem because of the agreement he had with them (I think Castor has supported Cosby’s claim about the agreement).

  35. Observer 2 * says:

    OK …. but let’s not use the R word. My kid is a retard (oops)

  36. robert sklaroff * says:

    Let’s keep up this charade where we pretend we are not the same pathetic retard!!

  37. Observer 2 says:

    @sklaroff – you got me.

    Can you name a time when a prosecutor was asked, and then truthfully answered that he hadn’t leaked grand jury information?

  38. robert sklaroff says:

    @ Observer 2:

    You raised three alternatives [“You’ll either get a prosecutor admitting misconduct, committing perjury, or pleading the fifth.”] without citing the fourth, namely, truthfully stating that he/she hasn’t leaked!

  39. Observer 2 says:

    @sklaroff – was there any other possible outcome to my hypothetical? I believe I covered all of them.

  40. HaHaHa says:

    Unfortunately for Frank Fina and Michael Eakin, their grandchildren will see the e-mails they sent using his Government computers, including Fina’s classic:

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/zadock1/3580634808

    Kane should get an award for making sure those two – and many others – are no longer employed on the taxpayers’ dime. Bravo Kathleen. Bravo!

  41. martina says:

    Kane can one day tell her grandchildren she was a contender and what she could have been. Her problem is the internet, aka the electronic epithet, and her grandchildren will know what really happened.

  42. bungy says:

    David, you will be very upset when the Gansler report is made public. A little tease here David, some of her WORST enemies will not be mentionted at all. Talk about full vindication for OUR BOYS. BUNGY WAS RIGHT ON FROM THE BEGINNING.MOMONEY MOMONEY MOMONEY.
