According to recent reports, former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, has just been convicted on nine felony counts.
Kane reportedly leaked grand jury secrets in an attempt to discredit a political rival, who she believed to be responsible for a negative newspaper article about her. She is now facing jail for up to two years, and will be on probation for a large part of the next decade.
“This case is about ego—ego of a politician consumed with her image from Day One,” Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy said during Kane’s sentencing on Monday. “And instead of focusing solely on the business of fighting crime, her focus was on defeating these perceived enemies.”
Judge Demchick-Alloy also argued that although Kane rose quickly to become the state’s top law enforcement officer, she never made the transition from politician to public servant.
This is just another shady character with close ties to the Clintons. Not only was she involved in Hillary’s first presidential campaign, but Bill endorsed Kane in 2012.
Kane was also considered a possible Senate contender for 2016. The Clinton campaign was quoted saying Kane’s charge were not “huge news” because “these problems have been going on for a while now.”
You are the company you keep, Hillary.
