The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office ran an undercover sting operation over three years that captured leading Philadelphia Democrats, including four members of the city's state House delegation, on tape accepting money, The Inquirer has learned.
Yet no one was charged with a crime.
Prosecutors began the sting in 2010 when Republican Tom Corbett was attorney general. After Democrat Kathleen G. Kane took office in 2013, she shut it down.
In a statement to The Inquirer on Friday, Kane called the investigation poorly conceived, badly managed, and tainted by racism, saying it had targeted African Americans.


Those who favored the sting believe Kane killed a solid investigation, led by experienced prosecutor Frank G. Fina, that had ensnared several public officials and had the potential to capture more. They said they were outraged at Kane's allegation that race had played a role in the case.
Before Kane ended the investigation, sources familiar with the inquiry said, prosecutors amassed 400 hours of audio and videotape that documented at least four city Democrats taking payments in cash or money orders, and in one case a $2,000 Tiffany bracelet.

In May 2011, Ali went to Brown's office and handed her an envelope with $2,000, according to people who have reviewed a transcript of a tape Ali made on that day.

As Brown accepted the money, they said, she put it in her purse and said: "Yo, good looking and Ooowee. . . . Thank you twice."
After he gave Brown the money, Ali urged her to vote against a bill that would require voters to show identification at the polls, the sources said.
Brown voted against the measure - as did every other Democrat in the House.

Well, at least is it a good thing that malfeasance is solely from Democrats, no Republican would ever do anything not perfectly legal, amirite? I may spend today being a RWNJ hack, join in on all the "I hate Obama" fun and games. Those evil fucking Democrats, and Obama and Benghazi as well. Fucking Libtards.

Nice spin and deflection.

Do you have any opinions to add about the top post?

Status quo for a Democrat. We need voter I.D.

The ability to get 100% of the vote in specific Pennsylvania and Ohio precincts tells me fraud is rampant. I have lived in all black areas, and there is always a 5-10% factor that hate the Democratic Party. There's just no way.

And what will voter ID do?

I'm still waiting for the thousands of voters who could not vote to pop up in the 2012 election, but it's been remarkably silent.

Perhaps voting machines need audit trails?

Then do it. Distribute the voter IDs. When you think you're done, then we'll hire an outside party to assess whether or not the distribution was sufficiently thorough, based on pre-determined metrics. And if you've reached or exceeded the goal, THEN we'll make the IDs a requirement for voting.

Is there any flaw to this plan?

As usual, you avoid the topic. Butthurt over the truth as usual. No worries, I will keep waving it in your face. I know you enjoy it.
