Son of Kane Witness Interviews for AG Job

KaneEven as Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s August 8th court date fast approaches, her top aides have been interviewing to fill an opening in her office, a notable candidate for which is the son of an opposing witness in Kane’s case.

According to Angela Couloumbis and Craig R. McCoy of the Inquirer, Matthew Peifer was interviewed on Monday by Kane’s Chief of Staff for a position in the office’s Child Predator Unit.

Peifer is the son of David Peifer, a former Kane aide who had agreed to work with prosecutors in exchange for immunity.

Jeff Johnson, a spokesman for Kane, claimed that neither Kane not David Peifer were involved in the hiring process of Matthew Peifer, and another spokesman said that Kane had not been aware that Matthew Peifer had applied for the position.

Kane is facing twelve charges, including two counts of perjury and ten misdemeanors.

  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your website. It appears like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

  2. Eakin and Fina are TOAST. Seth Williams’ career is on life support and he may be headed to Federal prison. I’d say Kane’s work is almost done; but the trial should claim some more victims.

    The truth is that Kane was the victim of a smear campaign. It was led by the people she had the goods on. And it led to the current, trumped-up criminal charges against her.

    The criminal case is bogus. The government’s star witness told two completely different stories. And the RAT will do or say anything to avoid responsibility. Was he involved in the set-up? We will see. The TRUTH comes out at trials.

    Popcorn will be ready!!

    COTT, let’s see how did you get your job? Did you know you were going to be a thief when you were growing up. If yes, sorry you got caught and convicted by Fina. Since you freely use the word retard perhaps you can explain to us why you weren’t accepted to any schools growing up. Was it because your Bulbus bald head couldn’t fit through the door? I have to be honest Genius is not my first thought either. I guess your mom was a good teacher maybe you were sick on the day she taught you shouldn’t steal. Now your use of the words; trolls, clown cars, retards making fun of homosexuals and posing as a woman using various aliases makes sense. Like others who post here you don’t scare me, you don’t intimidate me and your threat of violence yesterday didn’t scare me.

    This brings me to this conclusion.


  4. Peifer (the undercover a/k/a rat we all thank) is still an employee of the AG s office. some of the deputy AG s like Beemer were also chief witnesses against Kane. so the AG employee team gets to go to court against their boss aug. 8, while the AG s office is contemplating hiring the kid of a chief witness against Kane who has hiring authority ? this is too weird or belief. so Peifer’s ‘s kid wants a job in the AG s office? Why not just let Peifer kid’s application languish for months or years, like the many other PA taxpayers and residents whose applications have ineptly been on hold for interminable amounts of time in our various overstuffed overpaid/ inept state bureaocracies?

  5. I’m having a hard time following this story. Peiffer ( herein referred to as the rat) is a top trusted aide to Kane. He and another commit Crimes at the request (or not) for Kane. They get caught . It’s not because Peiffer has a guilty conscience. After being caught he agrees to be a rat. Said rat keeps his job as a top law enforcement in thie PA Attorney Generals Office. Why was he at least not fired with an agreement to testify? Then the rat tries to get his kid a job in the same Agency and in the same Unit that the rat is in charge of. Have we all lost our minds. It would seem to me a first year prosecutor out of law school could have made this case with just the footprints they were leaving when they were checking into an area of the mainframe that they weren’t supposed to have access too. This whole situation is nut.

  6. Great point Jax. Craig & Angela should be ashamed. And they too should be held accountable. They have been co-conspirators with Fina & The Cotbett Pervs. They helped racists and women-haters try to take down an AG that had the goods on them. Just look at the knife-wielding Judge Feudale’s e-mails.

  7. Awesome. Blame reporters for reporting a potential significant conflict of interest end ethical concern.

  8. The real question here is how did the reporters become advised of this interview? It just goes to show how many people in that office are out to get Kane and how badly the reporters are in bed with them. It’s really sad what has become of what passes for journalistic integrity these days. I wonder how the Inky will spin a not guilty verdict. Probably with a hearty endorsement for Josh Shapiro

  9. Why would they reject his application? Lots of people apply for jobs and don’t get interviews. That makes zero sense.

  10. How else would internet space be wasted!?

    There is no story here. Kane could have been sued for rejecting this application because of who the applicant’s father is.

  11. The mans father is a witness for the prosecution. He was given immunity for agreeing to testify against Kane. In what reality is this a good idea. I am not saying the guy does not deserve a job but wait for the disposition of the case to be completed against Kane. How is this even a question in anyone’s mind?

  12. CLOWN CAR if Kane’s Ofice refused to interview the snitch’s kid:

    “OMG – This is wrong. That kid should not have to pay for the fact that his father is telling the truth in Court.”

    CLOWN CAR now that Kane’s Office refused to deny the kid an interview based on who his father is:

    “OMG – the hypocrisy”

  13. Sure let’s ignore the unbelievable conflict that exists there. Yet you are happy to blast judges for having contact with attorney’s. Sure let’s ignore the hypocrisy…..

  14. Is it true that Frank Fina interviewed for truck-driver job with Kane’s ex-husband? LOL

    If he doesn’t get it – he can hit up Costanzo and Claude (Fraud) Thomas for some cash. Seth Williams is still giving them taxpayer money.

    Oh – and speaking of taxpayer money – Fina & The Corbett Pervs’ money-driven civil case against Kane was just thrown out by Federal Judge.
