    OK. I managed to make sure I let Levant’s other client – Tyron Ali – keep the $400K he stole from PA taxpayers (note that I am also Levant’s client).

    I made sure I covered-up my use of State computers on racist material (at least for a while until Kane EXPOSED me).

    Me and Levant are now suing the AG’s Office for more taxpayer $$$.

    I got Seth Williams (idiot) to help me smear AG Kane.

    I got Seth Williams (moron) to hire Levant’s wife to a newly created position. A job she is not qualified for.

    I got Seth Williams (fool) to get rid of his First Assistant (the one that wanted me fired – along with the rest of the legal community and civilized people everywhere).

    And now I got Seth Williams (buffoon) to promote my guy – Claude Thomas – to supervise a bunch of fine law enforcement people who have been with the DA’s Office for tens of years. Oh yeah — Claude Thomas is suing the AG’s Office for money too.

    This is AWESOME … at least til we all get arrested!!
