“Served”: I Do Not Think That Means What You Think it Means

Kathleen Kane

Kathleen Kane has finally, after pressure from her own party’s Governor, and pretty much every other Dem in the state, chosen to resign: “I have been honored to serve the people of Pennsylvania and I wish them health and safety in all their days.” I doubt Josh Shapiro, the Dem candidate for AG in 2016 (who is promising to somehow implement bans on rifle transfers a la handguns in the commonwealth), is going to want the fresh stench of Kathleen Kane’s trashed career wafting over his campaign.

It’s worthwhile to keep in mind that Attorney General is a good stepping stone for Governor, and Bloomberg made his significant investment in Kane in part because he had high hopes that she was a winner, and it would be nice to have a friend in the Governor’s mansion. It is not without considerable snickering that I’ve watched her come apart at the seams.

  1. Ah, a last modicum of humanity. Sadly, this bad penny will be back. We haven’t heard the last of her.

  2. You need a new picture of Kane.

    Given that orange is the new black, perhaps something with an orange jumpsuit. Somewhere I read that the 70s fashion trend of jumpsuits might be coming back and I think it might be a given in her case.

        1. I doubt those types of comments reflect well on this site or on 2A activists. Bloomberg wasn’t alone in funding a woman’s rise just because she stood out as attractive and confident… Isn’t that what conservatives did eight years ago with the governor of Alaska? Tokenism is rampant all over. People should be judged on their own merits and heavily vetted. Appearances can be deceiving no matter which party you’re talking about.

  3. Well, as a convicted felon she won’t have to worry about buying legal guns. Or voting.

    Good for her.

  4. Is that picture of her you use 15 – 20 years old or something? Like the one they use of Katie Couric on Yahoo?
