House Speaker Mike Turzai took second place (136) while Governor Tom Wolf followed close behind (119).

Finally, 59 respondents went with Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and 52 readers thought PA Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin had the worst year.

    My spouse and i got so thankful that Ervin could round up his homework out of the precious recommendations he was given through your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply happen to be freely giving strategies that many people today may have been selling. Therefore we fully understand we’ve got the blog owner to be grateful to for this. The most important explanations you made, the straightforward website menu, the relationships your site assist to engender – it’s got all spectacular, and it’s leading our son and the family do think the subject is interesting, which is exceptionally important. Thanks for everything!

    I’d be embarrassed to defend or hypocritically NOT punish this behavior.

    james – what, if any, punishment did Kane’s sister receive? And in what ways were the “punishments” different for her sister than they were for others who did the same thing?

    Did Kane’s sister send hate e-mails out to judges she appears in front of? Did she – like Fina did – send the KFC image to a group of white male buddies? Did she send around images of children forced to pose in sexual positions? Did she distribute Fina’s “motivational posters? The ones that suggested that female employees needed to perform oral sex on their male bosses if they wanted to advance their careers?

  6. james says:

    Based on the punishments Kane has already handed out, it looks like she’s treated her sister with a double standard.

  7. HaHaHa says:

    Not sure what you art along about, Jon. SVKand has brought in an Independent Prosecutor to see if there were any violations of the law. The Independent Prosecutor will investigate and determine if charges should be brought — including charges against Ms Granahan.

  8. Jon Cotti says:

    When is Kane going to make a move? She needs to do something soon or stand down. Shake it up Kane or give it up. Pass that on to your pal Wolf.

    I remember reading the accounts of these two women in 2015:

    1) Sheilah Novasky met Frank Fina for the first time while she was waiting to testify before a grand jury in the state’s case against DeWeese. She said she sat in a small room with seven men – including Fina.

    Fina repeatedly asked bout two things: How many women on DeWeese’s staff were sleeping with Manzo? And did she know about Frameli’s “breast enhancements”?
    Novasky then went before the grand jury. Fina asked her nothing about breasts or Manzo’s sexual relationships.

    “I think it was for their own amusement,” Novasky said. “There is a line between intimidation and interrogation and they crossed the lines whenever they concentrated on the sexual antics, which had nothing to do with [the case] …”

    2) Melissa Frameli remembers: “Fina was saying that we were exchanging political emails on state time and that it was illegal … It’s pretty sick that they were doing the same thing that they were screaming at us for – and our emails were related to political work, they weren’t degrading toward women or towards men, they weren’t pornographic in nature.”

    She recalled that Fina was fixated on her personal relationship with DeWeese’s chief of staff, Michael Manzo, and whether she had spent her bonus money on a “boob job.” He accused her of “whoring around,” unleashing a string of profanity and “F-bombs,” she said. …

    “He was completely putting me down and saying I was going to get in trouble for sleeping with my boss. Screaming at me, and saying that I used my bonus to get a boob job and that I was a disgrace, basically . . . I felt very degraded by him. I felt very degraded as a woman.”

  10. Unsanctioned R says:

    The truth is that we’ve only seen the emails that Kathleen Kane allows us to see. But, here’s a sample of what’s been released from Ms. Granahan that Marie is defending as not racist or sexist:

    “Domestic Violence: Because sometimes, you have to tell her more than once.” Including a picture of a woman with a black eye.

    a photograph of an African American toddler bedecked in gold jewelry and clutching a stack of money – “disgusting . . . obviously racist,” said the NOW representative who hasn’t called for the Kane sisters’ resignations.

    “Illegal Immigrants: Millions of them come in and only one bastard actually works.”

    There’s also some good stuff for the LGBT community. Shall I go on?

  11. Anonymous says:

    That’s rich coming from you Marie seeing how you gave a pass to everyone bashing Fina who used the word “retard.” you’re a real sweetheart. Go back to posting as Hahaha.

  12. CandyCane says:

    PP,why aren’t you guys reporting what Penn live and keystone are reporting. Senior AG’S Mulle and Beemer are demanding Gansler return all emails and hard drives back to the AG’S office. They BOTH know what Kane is doing is not legal.Check it out for yourselves on pennlive or keystone Report.

  13. CandyCane says:

    Hey Marie and Pat, 2 of the 3 people both of you continue to make libelous statements about never SENT degrading emails about anyone. Get your facts straight.

  14. Marie says:

    Untruthful R,

    Granahan is not alleged to have sent e-mails that devalued, demeaned and ridiculed immigrants, members of the LGBT community and people of color. She is not alleged to have suggested that female employees needed to perform oral sex on their male boss if they wanted their careers to advance. You are a Fina supporter/family member. So – I do not expect the truth to matter to you. but the readers here have a right to know the truth. Granahan also is not alleged to have sent the KFC e-mail so that a group of whites could laugh at the idea that Blacks would attack a white man for fried chicken.

    That was Frank Fina. His perp walk is coming!!
