Kane Reacts to Senate Vote in New Interview (VIDEO)


Kathleen Kane emerged victorious yesterday and hit the airwaves to reflect.

After the State Senate failed to remove her from office, the Attorney General granted her first interview in months to WNEP’s Sarah Buynovsky.

“I’m happy and I believe my supporters are happy and Pennsylvanians are happy to move on,” she said of the result.

The Attorney General also made clear she believes it is her mission to remove politics from government.

“Now that I’m on the inside and I see it and I feel it everyday. I realize now more than ever that politics is a disease on this commonwealth and it needs to be cut out,” Kane states.

The AG was less critical of the recent effort to launch impeachment proceedings in the State House.

“At least it’s the right process, you know,” she said. “I never believed that this senate was the right process and I like everyone to follow the rules. The rules are supposed to be followed for everyone no matter who they are or where they are in their lot in life and the Constitution says the proper process is impeachment.”

She also reiterated her belief that she is being persecuted because of her efforts to uncover the various pornographic and offensive emails that have been sent and shared by state officials.

“I know I did nothing wrong. I know it and I know that they will see it too,” she asserted.

Finally, Kane told Buynovsky she is still weighing whether to run for re-election and noticed the results of the latest Harper Poll that had her leading the Democratic field.

“I’m not surprised because everywhere I go I feel the support of Pennsylvanians,” she stated. “They’re tired of what’s happening, I think they see through everything that’s going on. They’re very supportive.”

“I think that when you’re faced with the situation I have been faced, you find your inner grit, and I think I found it more than I ever thought I had it,” Kane concluded.

  1. She said a long time ago that she wasn’t going to run for re-election. But, if she does not, the bad guys will do everything on their power to delay/frustrate the Special Prosecutor in the hopes that the new AG will let it go.

  2. Rumor has it-

    Considering how she has been treated, I wouldn’t blame her for not wanting the job.

    If she isn’t on the ballot for November, there is no longer any reason for her August trial. They’ll either drop it or offer her a sweetheart plea cheaper than court costs, all misdemeanors (no perjury).

    She could make plenty writing a tell-all book.

    We’ll know in two days if she files petitions.

  3. Rumor has it that Kathleen Kane will not file a nomination petition to become a candidate for re-election as Attorney General. She will release a statement claiming that she is concentrating on defending herself against false accusations, and wants to protect the reputation of the office. The real truth is she doesn’t have the support to gather and defend the minimum number of signatures she needs to get on the ballot, isn’t and can’t raise $ needed to run a competitive campaign and is using the campaign $ she has to pay her lawyers in the criminal action.

  4. Bottom line.

    Nothing has been proven. The allegations are just that. The DA looking for fingerprints all this time later prove how WEAK they think their case is.

    Meantime, when it comes to investigating the many illegal leaks from the Kane probe
    – // CRICKETS //

  5. Cue the music ….

    Don’t you know I’m still standing and you are all pieces of shit
    Looking like a true survivor, putting’ Eakin on the skids
    I’m still standing after all this time
    Making sure Fina gets his due, a little bit of prison time.

    I’m still standing – yeah yeah yeah
    I’m still standing – yeah yeah yeah

    Once I never could hope to win
    You started with the smear campaign; and I had a frown
    The stuff you leaked was meant to cut me down
    And if Harrisburg was a real circus, you’d be a clown by now

    You know I’m still standing better than I ever did
    Looking like a true survivor, exposing your sexual pics of kids
    I’m still standing after all this time
    Picking up supporters in my life; as you do your lyin’

    I’m still standing – yeah yeah yeah
    I’m still standing – yeah yeah yeah

  6. You know how candidates play various music at their rallies to match a theme in their campaign?

    Kane should reach out and secure the rights to play Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing”.

  7. DD – a guy with “98” and “cess pool” in his screen name typed confidently that “Shameless” and Johnny Doc set up Kane. He posited that the reporter who broke the Mondedire story is a known accomplice of Doc and that he gets fred drinks at Doc’s bar. He said we could look up many other articles written by that same author where Doc (or McCaffery) was the leak. He implied that A King and/or J Morrow were in on the frame job.

  8. Hey — Frank Fina!!

    Time to file another law suit. The Press is all going in Kane’s favor. They have (finally) figured you out. You are worse than the “corrupt” defendants you used to prosecute back when you were still a prosecutor.

  9. Reasonable Rep sure does sound a lot like the RETARD stalker troll who is obsessed with me.

    LOL. You need new screen-names loser. You are too easy to figure out. That’s because you are stupid. It will hard for you to fix that one. After all, you were born that way. And you cannot change who your parents are.

    You can work on not being so pathetic. You are like one of the little girls IN LOVE with Justin Bieber. Except I am just a stranger on the internet. GET A LIFE.

  10. Johnny Sucker Punching Dougherty who broke a man’s nose. How does this get covered up? How doesn’t this get picked up by Philly.com. There is DC# that is being blocked from the media. Believe me it’s being watched. FBI please help the City of Philadelphia get rid of this crumb bum.

  11. Wow Johnny Doc can get politicspa to wipe out comments too. I guess he’s in bed with you as well. He’s a criminal and I can’t wait to see the FBI lock this crazy man up. Mrs. Kane please launch an investigation on him. Trust me the Feds will have a field day with him.

  12. Pat Unger and HaHaHa sure do have a strange habit of commenting within 7 minutes of one another.

  13. Speaking of Brennan, has Fina ever explained why he deep-sixed the investigation of Mondesire? Is it a coincidence that his new best buddy (and employer -Seth Williams) was tight with Mondesire? Cozy huh??

  14. 98 – If you are correct, the Feds BETTER BE INVOLVED in this investigation.

    There is no doubt in my mind that this was a set-up. But I have never heard that Doc and Shameless were involved. It seems like a bit of a stretch. And your screen name would imply a bias.

    Morrow Has definitely told two different stories. The Fact that Brennan is tight with Doc means nothing. In fact – we know that Kane and the McCafferys were once close. Dan spoke at her inauguration. Playing devil’s advocate: perhaps they told Kane who to go to (Brennan) when she wanted to leak something that would embarrass Fina.

    I have no idea what happened. But I wouldn’t trust King, Morrow, or Fina as far as I could throw them.

    Can’t wait until the Special Prosecutor completes his investigation. I would imagine that “flippers” have already been hitting him up for immunity/deals. Only Seth Williams is dumb enough to go down with the likes of Frank Fina.

  15. I agree with the AG politics is a disease and everyone in pa is getting real tired of getting infected by the nonsense of our elected officials.
