Enjoy Seeing Bloomberg’s Hopes & Dreams Flushed Down the Jail Cell Commode

Savor this, as it might be the only schadenfreude you’ll get this silly season: Kathleen Kane in handcuffs being carted off to prison. They had high hopes for this rising star in Democratic politics, and now where are they? Bloomberg sank, if I recall, about half a million into her race. That’s a lot of cash to spend to buy a few reciprocity agreement changes, but it’s always good to get in the ground floor of a rising political career. But that was not to be.

I noticed that Bloomberg was only willing to dump an even quarter million to Josh Shapiro’s campaign in the AG race this time around, but at this point he’s probably only looking to protect his gains from that office rather than looking for risky favors.

    Saw this over at John Richardson’s blog, too.

    Lawyers understand the concept of precedent. That said, is it true that Ms. Kane is the first woman and first Democrat to hold the PA AG position?

    If so, she just set Democrats — and women — back several decades and set a bad precedent for future candidates. Who’s going to want to vote in another Dem when the first and only one was escorted out in handcuffs?

    I hope Bloomberg’s happy with the results. The schadenfreude is indeed sweet with this one.

      You should come to Illinois. They vote in convicted felons still in jail.

      Not exactly. She is the first woman and first Democrat to hold the office of Attorney General since it became an elected position in 1980. There were several Democratic Attorneys General prior to that when it was an appointed position, and one woman, Anne X. Alpern.

      • Archer says:

        OK, so first woman and first Democrat elected to the position, and she left office in handcuffs. That’s still a precedent that I don’t imagine the people of PA will be too keen to duplicate.

    Convicted felon, eh? No more gun buying for her! :)

    I was waiting for this post from when I first heard the news. There’s a reason I say “may someone get exactly what they deserve” as my most serious curse.

    Why are her hands cuffed in front? That is a serious officer safety risk! She needs to be cuffed behind her back.

    Oh its so joyous to see her go down.

    She flew her broom in on the backs of all the Penn State Alum idiots. Her winning was more to do with Penn State than Bloomberg.
    That being said, I am very happy to have her go down and get some County lock up. (Why is it County, BTW?) She will be out in 10 months.

    I am hoping all my PA friends will vote Rafferty for AG! He is a personal long time friend of mine.
