Cash Payoffs, Porngate and the Kathleen Kane Scandal
Once again, a crime wave swept through Pennsylvania state government. During a 17-month period from early 2015 through mid-2016, a sitting state treasurer, and a former state treasurer, both statewide elected officials who were guardians of taxpayers' money, were charged with crimes, as was an ex-Governor's chief of staff and the attorney general, the state's chief law enforcement officer. It was preceded by a sting investigation that resulted in state legislators videotaped taking cash from an undercover operative posing as a lobbyist and an alleged pay to play scheme at the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Porn and off-color emails on government computers took out two Supreme Court justices. It's all in Brad Bumsted's latest book: Keystone Corruption Continues: Cash Payoffs, Porngate and the Kathleen Kane Scandal.
