Kane to Announce Special Prosecutors for Porn Emails

kane-sad2Kathleen Kane will announce special prosecutors to investigate the infamous pornographic emails tomorrow.

The Attorney General has stated that these people will “go through every public email account trafficking this filth and track down every public server over which it was circulated.”

According to Wallace McKelvey of the Patriot-News, the press conference will take place at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia at 11:00 (although it’s hard to imagine the framers of the Constitution, as well as the founders of the Center, ever intended an event like this to happen).

The question remains, though, whether Kane still has the power to appoint special prosecutors. After all, her law license was suspended last month.

“The attorney general believes the appointment of a special prosecutor is a policy decision that doesn’t require any legal consideration and she also retains authority over personnel,” Kane’s spokesman Chuck Ardo said.

Expect that to be a major point of contention after tomorrow.

    BTW – this is the part where “Terry” + “Doglover” + “Sponge(B)ob” pretended they are not the same person having a conversation with himself. LMAO – Pathetic.

  2. HaHaHa says:

    WAH …. Wahhhhhhhh !!! WAH … … … Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!
    Keep crying troll-boy. The law will be coming for you soon!!

  3. HaHaHa says:

    Fake Pat – If that were the case, you and your cowardly racist buddies wouldn’t be so terrified. If no crimes were committed, no prosecutions will be coming.

    But – just in case – get the orange jump-suits ready!!!

  4. Terry M says:

    Doglover, HaHaHa is clearly the dumbest commenter on here and, unfortunately, the most prolific. Never anything of substance, no facts to support his claims, and never an answer to any pointed question. He does nothing but make broad unsubstantiated claims and then call people shills and trolls and Repervlicans. In short, HaHaHa is a complete douche bag.

  5. Doglover2015 says:

    Dave. So now it’s not the police who are corrupt but the prosecutors are involved in this conspiracy as well. Plus, in these 400 days not one person leaked any information or referred to this conspiracy other than you. Will you be talking about this before WHYY oh that’s rskar**** talking there but you said you were. You guys are sure confusing. Oh wait I can hear the keys on HaHa keyboard typing the word Troll guess he doesn’t have anything else to say other than to deflect.

  6. Doglover2015 says:

    Ha Ha. Ok I think I have this now. If there were postings on this site that Somehow could be associated with a civil or criminal crime and you knowing this directed another person to delete those posts like you did in your online post to Mr. Snyder that would be a crime plus an additional charge of conspiracy right? Don’t take my word for it check the Pa Crimes Code and you know exactly what I am referring to. To others please be careful not to get caught up in this web. But then again I’m just a troll. (Don’t worry I’ve already copied the appropriate posts along with your post to delete some posts)

  7. aaron says:

    Oh my … the perverts, racists, and women-haters are scurrying like rats.

    BTW – has Eakin resigned yet?

  8. David Diano says:

    Doglover2015-

    The police and the prosecutors work hand-in-hand complicitly to cover up police shootings. This is why police are rarely even charged or investigated. This cozy relationship extends to drug busts and all sorts of crimes, to produce the high incarceration rates (and the private for-profit prison complex). You don’t get 400 days of cover-up hiding a video accident. It’s a lot of work to fight the families of the victims.

    SpongeBob-

    Have you scrubbed the porn off your work computers yet? Better hurry.

  9. Doglover2015 says:

    Rsk****. Ok Please pardon my ignorance but I can’t understand your post. Are you and Dave D. attending the WHYY event or just Dave or did someone screw up and forget who posted what yesterday.

  10. HaHaHa says:

    Uh oh, boys … looks like the team that is coming to get you is PRETTY STRONG. Independent Counsel is former Maryland AG Doug Gansler. His team includes an e-discovery expert and four Harvard lawyers.

    You guys are GOING TO JAIL !!!

  11. rsklaroff says:

    @ Marie and Doglover2015:

    Public reference to Guzzardi was emblematic of the need for others who had supported AG-Kane to follow his lead, and to recant, regardless of their private motives for having initially defended her.

    My reference to speaking to the WHYY Board was intended to divulge the need for people to be more concerned with the Commonweal than their politics.

    These are not tangential considerations, as “Queen Cleopatra” increasingly senses the advance of troops who will ultimately prompt her to cuddle an asp…as occurred on August 12, 30 B.C.E.

  12. HaHaHa says:

    Right on, Marie. The shills have their marching orders. They seem to be VERY WORRIED about this investigation. They must be guilty … and looking to avoid those orange jump-suits.

  13. Marie says:

    Still no shills talking about the following … I guess their bosses told them to focus on the pending criminal investigation …

    Seth Williams just hired – as “General Counsel” -the wife of a con-man’s lawyer … who also happens to be the wife of Fina’s lawyer. A woman with little prosecution experience and ZERO general counsel experience.

    And now it seems clear that there was an “improper” prosecution of Black people and an “unjust” (Beemer’s words) deal between Fina and Tyron Ali (who we now know share the same lawyer).

    Not one shill-boy has even attempted to explain how it is OK that Fina let his lawyer’s other client keep the $400,000.00 he stole from the citizens of PA.

    And the shill-boys have abandoned their once-popular attack on Kane where they allege she “dropped” the sting case for political reasons. It’s now abundantly clear that she made the same decision the Feds made because the case is a steaming pile of dung (as I said many months ago).

    Seth Williams begging a defendant to take his way too generous plea deal is proof that he knew and knows that the case is a steaming pile of dung. So – why take it? Hmmmmm …

    // CRICKETS //

  14. Doglover2015 says:

    Rskloraff……. I am confused because I thought Dave had posted that he was speaking on Friday at 8PM at WHYY.

  15. Marie says:

    Can’t sklaroff just e-mail “guzzard?” Or send a letter? Why does he have to pollute this board. I think I will email Mr. Snyder about that.

  16. Doglover2015 says:

    Haha well I guess that’s what you do and apparently are famous for when you can’t defend your position. A phony.

  17. rsklaroff says:

    Memo to Guzzardi:

    If, indeed, you have finally concluded that AG-Kane is now “desperate” to change-the-topic, this reflects a change in your stance…for you previously [incorrectly] had defended her.

    If, indeed, this posting emanated from Ardmore, Pa., then it may also reflect a greater personal-recognition that a politician’s adoption of a crusader-rabbit image may reflect underlying-ego more than public-commitment…an observation that would differentiate this phenomenon from what you experienced in 3/2014.

    If, indeed, this observation is accurate, then it is possible that you have “healed” from the trauma directed @ you c/o Corbett, just as Jim Foster is now handling how he was man-handled during the mayoralty-race c/o Kenney.

    BTW, know that I’m speaking on Friday @ 8 a.m. to the WHYY Board [Jim will accompany me] to provide intense negative-feedback for their decision to have excluded him from the debate that they had sponsored; I had called all sponsors of the latter three debates to encourage them–at the very least–to have established a “kiddie table” [at the very least] for the candidates who hadn’t been promoted by the two major parties [alas, to no avail].

  18. HaHaHa says:

    Doglover – you are a troll (same one) and I know it. I do not have back-and-forths with trolls. Have a great day and a great life … if you can … as a troll …

  19. rsklaroff says:

    Memo to the individual who posted the following on my behalf:

    You accurately provided a plea that I had composed episodically in the past and that appears to be urgent currently:

    rsklaroff says:
    December 1, 2015 at 9:53 am
    I have again e-mailed Sy Snyder to have him remove the posts of the impostors.

  20. Doglover2015 says:

    HaHa please don’t go off on a personal attack on me and I am also concerned that you directed Stu Snyder to remove posts from what you believe to be imposters. Could this be your attempt at censorship of those who may disagree with you are you. Do you think it is wise if your statements are well founded and provable.

    Ok your last post said Kane has evidence of their crimes. Who’s crimes? What crimes? If so why hasn’t she or some other law enforcement agency (US Attorney’s Office) accept a referral. You keep saying crimes. What crimes? Can you define what the crimes are and where they are found in the PCC. I don’t mind your argument if you follow it with specific facts and not geralities.

  21. KSDF says:

    So Kane is going to read through every Commonwealth employee’s emails in her fishing expedition…

    AFSCME, please pick up the white courtesy phone.

  22. HaHaHa says:

    Agreed, Bob. The Clown Car is getting desperate. The moment they have been dreading is almost here. They are about to be held accountable for their criminal acts. Imagine that! The nerve of the Attorney General of Pennsylvania!!! How dare she go after criminals … LOL …

    The smear campaign was designed to get the Clown Car out of the mess they created. They mis-used State resources … over and over. Corbett and Ryan tried to destroy the evidence; but they failed. Once Kane has evidence of their crimes, they went on the attack to discredit her. They wanted to be able to make the argument the shills make below.

    But – it’s not working. The citizens of PA want the truth. We want to know what they were doing on our dime. We want to know about their cozy relationships with Judges. And we want the wrongdoers held accountable.

    It’s simple, really.

  23. rsklaroff says:

    I have again e-mailed Sy Snyder to have him remove the posts of the impostors.

  24. bobguzzardi says:

    Desperate

  25. Spongebob says:

    Right so instead of answering deflect sure that makes sense. Question her sister being on the chain if you want but it’s been reported by multiple places that her sister was on the chain and was included in the discipline list. Again, what criminal statute did he use?

  26. Marie says:

    Of course, I have no idea why Fina would consider Penn State an enemy, other than the obvious fact that PSU was a haven and an enabler for pedophilia. Joe Paterno himself got revealed for what he was — a guy whose legacy and ego meant more than stopping a child molester. And for revealing that, Fina is MY enemy. I love child molesters and I love Penn State!

  27. HaHaHa says:

    Sorry guys, I’m out of breath from quickly changing back and forth between HaHaHa and Pat Unger. This is hard work! But don’t worry — I’ll be here all day making allegations that have no factual support and legal claims that I don’t understand! Clown Car! Corbett Pervs!

  28. Marie says:

    More despicable behavior from F. Fina. Of course he prosecutes a woman for something so minor because it involved his ENEMY at the time – Penn State. He is a total POS. To prosecute that lady and then turn around and start sending porn and racist stuff to his friends – just pathetic. So pathetic.

  29. HaHaHa says:

    Can someone point me to the public records of Kane’s sixter sending porn e-mails? I have not seen that referenced anywhere. I mean other than the Clown Car saying that this happened.

  30. Spongebob says:

    Can someone point me to the public records of this case where Fina prosecuted a woman who paid her son’s tuition and was prosecuted? I have not seen that referenced anywhere. I mean other than someone saying I heard that this happened. Happened to whom? As for the leaks sure prosecute them all. I think the difference is Kane was so egregious with her belief she was above the law she did it so far out in the open compared to what I imagine were far more clandestine approaches taken by other leakers. But hey if there is proof, take them all down.

  31. Pat Unger says:

    Let’s see …. What is worse ….

    Using your State computer to pay your son’s tuition?

    OR

    Using your State computer on this:https://www.flickr.com/photos/zadock1/3580634808

    LMAO – Is it even close?

  32. HaHaHa says:

    Doglover – what personal gain did the lady who paid her son’s tuition get?

    If a woman working for the State gets prosecuted by Frank Fina for paying her son’s tuition using her State computer, then Frank Fina damn well better be prosecuted for using his State computer on the racist, women-hating, garbage he sent to his white male buddies.

    What part don’t you understand?

  33. HaHaHa says:

    Wait — Great points.

    But there is an entity that is not led by a Repervlican, who has jurisdiction, and who has a unit dedicated to public corruption. The US Attorney’s Office should be on this.

    After all – Seth Williams just hired – as “General Counsel” -the wife of a con-man’s lawyer … who also happens to be the wife of Fina’s lawyer. A woman with little prosecution experience and ZERO general counsel experience.

    And now it seems clear that there was an “improper” prosecution of Black people and an “unjust” (Beemer’s words) deal between Fina and Tyron Ali (who we now know share the same lawyer).

    Not one shill-boy has even attempted to explain how it is OK that Fina let his lawyer’s other client keep the $400,000.00 he stole from the citizens of PA.

    And the shill-boys have abandoned their once-popular attack on Kane where they allege she “dropped” the sting case for political reasons. It’s now abundantly clear that she made the same decision the Feds made because the case is a steaming pile of dung (as I said many months ago).

    Seth Williams begging a defendant to take his way too generous plea deal is proof that he knew and knows that the case is a steaming pile of dung. So – why take it? Hmmmmm …

  34. KSDF says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if she got disbarred for appointing special prosecutors while her license was suspended?

  35. Doglover2015 says:

    Wait what, using government resources for personal gain. What personal gain does one get from receiving and or sending pornography?

  36. Terry M says:

    Wait, what — you honestly don’t see the difference between Perzel/DeWeese/etc and Fina? The crime that Perzel and DeWeese and Veon and others served state time for involved personal enrichment. They used state computers to run campaigns that kept them in office. Fina is only alleged to have sent and received emails with sexual and racist content. No personal enrichment, and so no crime. It’s really pretty obvious.

  37. Wait, what ? says:

    One other point and I’ll sit back to watch the insult-fest. For those of you who really think Gna and Eakin are going to jail or will be subject to disciplinary action, wake up. Ask yourself just who is going to prosecute them? Certainly not Kane or Seth Williams. And just about every DA office in the state is headed by a republican prosecutor. The D Board and JCB are populated by Supreme Court appointees and the news media is,to use your favorite word, OWNED by Kane antagonists. Can anyone seriously think of a more toxic combination than prosecutors judges and reporters all aligned against one person? Think about it and you might understand just what Kane is up against.

  38. Wait, what ? says:

    Sorry to interrupt the love fest going on here but since Terry M keeps asking, the “crime” commuted is identical to the crimes prosecuted by Fina in numerous cases over several years-namely the misuse of governmental resources for personal gain. See Perzel, Deweese and multiple staffers including one who sent her sons tuition to Penn State over a government computer. I’m no Kane apologist but can someone defend Fina’s hypocrisy? How can he prosecute those “crimes” while using his state computer to receive, view and send adult content to his friends? I’m sure even Terry M might understand-unless of course Terry is really Mrs Fina.

  39. HaHaHa says:

    Spongebob … Oh Spongebob … Where are you?? You didn’t answer my question:

    I told you that EVERYONE who used their State computers/servers to send that garbage around should be held accountable. Now — do you agree that EVERYONE who leaked grand jury material should be prosecuted criminally? Because – as it stands, Kane is being prosecuted for ONE leak while Fina & The Corbett Pervs get away with their MANY illegal leaks (from the Kane probe … and many others for that matter). What’s good for the goose, is good for the perverts, no?

  40. Doglover2015 says:

    SpongeBob. That is an excellent point. She really doesn’t have the authority over other servers cause in the absence of child pornography (there has only been 1 allegation awhich she falsely made and retracted) There is no criminality except that which she is alledged to have committed as well as her staff member. Everything else other than those 2 arrests have all been handled through administrative means. A good example of this is is even the outsiders that became involved on the fringes no one ever executed a search warrant on their servers or computers. Why, she didn’t have the authority and there is no allegation that a CRIME was committed. So this Special Prosecutor and his/her staff will only be able to examine what’s already been examined. The problem is also if an allegation of a crime arises from the AG server examination the rules of evidence would certainly negate any arrest as the servers were not isolated, copied to a work product with the original preserved. We know that her staff had already accessed that server and it could be alledged they tampered with them by adding or deleting information and thus you have the fruits from a poisenous tree.

  41. SpongeBob says:

    David. She only has rights to the emails on her servers. She has not authority over anyone else’s servers including the commonwealths because the office is independent and does not leverage their services. She has no rights to subpoena because the misuse of a computer on state time is an agency matter. There is nothing other than the child porn statute that she could use for subpoena so what other servers is she talking about again?

    So since you are an amateur lawyer, it guy and judge. Tell me what other sources is she searching and why is it taking more than a year?

  42. Doglover2015 says:

    DD. There would be some merit to your statement of a cover up for 400 days however the Dustrict Attorneys Office files the charges not the Police. If there are any complaints about the time line you look at the Prosecutor. I’m sure with police shootings the District Attorney’s Office was on this case and naturally had access to the video.

    SpongeBob I do agree with you that every time something negative happens towards MS. Kane she is launching a new accusation. This untimitely damages her credibility. Also, think of the number of times she has said something publicly that was later retracted by her or her office. One example was when she claimed to have found child pornography contained within one of the emails. The following day that statement was taken back. Who originally made that false assumption. I don’t have faith in her office being involved in this investigation. I don’t think they have the expertise especially since it was learned that her driver and one of her top top agents were searching a server looking for incriminating information that could be used to her advantage. Also, I would want assurances that nothing “walks” and shows up in the newspaper which was provided by a office staff member or other source if she is forced to leave.

  43. HaHaHa says:

    DD – Fina let Ali off the hook … AND he let him keep the $400,000.00 he stole. Now – we find out they have the same lawyer.

    And – that lawyer stands to profit from Fina’s lawsuit against Kane.

    AND — that lawyer’s wife is now “General Counsel” at the DA’s Office? With little to no experience ….

    IMO – this is VERY suspicious. And Ali could NEVER “flip” against Fina … because Fina’s lawyer (also Ali’s lawyer) would not allow it. The FEDS need to get involved and have a look at this.

  44. David Diano says:

    SpongeBob-

    This has been an ongoing matter investigating the emails. If you knew anything about computers, you would have noticed how they mentioned tracking not only emails originating from the AG office, but multiple email accounts and servers. As they uncover emails, they find more connections to people that have to be tracked down. You should upgrade from your Radio Shack TRS-80.

    The people attacking her to hide their own misbehavior should be the first investigated, and their stones send flying back into their glass houses.

    The removal of Feudale was significant. The behavior of Eakin is going to be interesting. The Disciplinary Board seems to be full of hypocrisy and in need of a thorough cleaning.

    HaHaHa-

    What is the difference between lowercase and uppercase “B” Sponge[Bb]obs?

    Fina letting Ali off the hook is very unusual and suspicious. I bet that Ali would flip over on Fina and have a lot to tell if given the chance.

  45. HaHaHa says:

    Spongebob (with lowercase “b”) — Yes. I have said repeatedly that EVERYONE who used their State computers/servers to send that garbage around should be held accountable.

    Now – do you agree that EVERYONE who leaked grand jury material should be prosecuted criminally? Because – as it stands, Kane is being prosecuted for ONE leak while Fina & The Corbett Pervs get away with their MANY illegal leaks (from the Kane probe … and many others for that matter). What’s good for the goose, is good for the perverts, no?

    DD — good points; especially with regards to the Chicago police shooting. Haven’t heard your take on the Fina/ Tyron Ali / same lawyer fiasco. It may be a bigger problem for Fina than the racist, woman-hating e-mails he used his State equipment on.

  46. SpongeBob says:

    David then why the selective release? Why is it she is only responding when an event happens to her? Where has she been on this for the past year? This is nothing more than her leveraging the emails over and over again. If you are so adamant that she burn it all down. Release all the emails. Stop hiding the emails from your inner circle and family that you are trying to protect.

  47. David Diano says:

    Doglover

    Police investigations and prosecutions are rife with corruption. Look no further than the shooting in Chicago that took 400 days to release the video. The entire chain of command was complicit in the attempted cover-up.

    The racism, biases and unprofessional conduct between prosecutors and judges needs to be thoroughly investigated and exposed. Many convictions should be overturned, and even plea bargains checked.

    Kane’s statement quoted here uses the word “every” twice. There is no indication of selective investigation.

    Kane is lighting the match and burning the whole corrupt system down. Good for her.

  48. Spongebob says:

    Well how about exposing the rest then? And don’t point to the investigation. Demand she release all the emails she had currently found including those within the office that she is NOT feuding with. Then ask her why she has 2 sides to this story. 1 side where she blasts those involved and demands the public outcry, and the other where she is advocating the opposite. She fought to not have to release all the emails because she wants to keep back those emails that would make her and her decisions look bad especially since they include family and those she calls friends. What say you to that HAHAHA? Do you not feel that EVERYONE should be exposed and not just those who she has a score to settle with?

  49. HaHaHa says:

    Agreed Doglover. When you have no defense, you attack the prosecutor that has the goods on you.

    That is exactly what Fina & The Corbett Pervs have been doing since AG Kane found the 20,000,000 e-mails that Corbett and Ryan tried to destroy.

    Unfortunately for them, they have now been EXPOSED for the cowardly, racist, women-hating perverts they are.

    Their smear campaign worked for a while. They made a whole of noise about a racist prosecution that targeted Black people. And then they harped on a divorce. They illegally leaked tons of material. One pathetic thing after the next. And here we are … almost 2016 … and AG Kane is still standing.

    That’s all you have to do to corrupt cowardly bullies – stand up to them. The truth will take over from there.

  50. Doglover2015 says:

    SpongeBob, you are right on point . If this is to be an all out investigation to find the culprits and put this matter to end she must take the necessary action against those you have already mentioned as well as those yet not identified. My question is have any successfull prosecutions been jeopardized by those identified withinn her office or not yet identified. Say the head of the computer forensics unit you’ve mentioned. Is it fair that he or his underlings investigated and perhaps testified that led to an individual being convicted. I think it’s well known among defense attorneys that when you have no defense left you attack the credibility of the police/investigators. Who knows where this all goes. The other thing is who is going to pay for this investigation. Also, I hear there are those lining up to sue the A. G. For firing those who had porn on their computers but she has yet to resign after being charged with Felonies. Lastly, who sent all these emails? The same person if so how many. Where did he or her work?
