The big story of the week is that Attorney General Kathleen Kane ended a three-year criminal investigation which produced evidence of corruption – yet no charges were filed.
The story, which was first reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer, concerns an investigation which allegedly found that at least four city Democrats had accepted bribes for votes.
Kane responded with a press conference Monday morning and an interview with Brad Bumsted of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in which she denied any wrongdoing.
According to the Attorney General, the case was poorly managed, the informant was not reliable and there was evidence that there was racial targeting in the investigation.
Already pundits are debating whether Kane’s image has been tarnished or burnished by the whole affair.
So, we decided to ask you our readers, was the Attorney General right not to bring charges in the case?
