A summary of the Inquirer story:

The Attorney General of Pennsylvania shut down an investigation of corrupt elected officials because everyone they caught — on tape — taking cash and gifts was black.

The Philadelphia Inquirer broke the story on Sunday. The sting operation began with a deal: If a black lobbyist accused of fraud would offer elected officials — black and white, Democrat and Republican — cash and gifts in exchange for votes, the prosecutors would drop charges against him.

So that is what he did over a three-year period.

“Sources with knowledge of the sting said the investigation made financial pitches to both Republicans and Democrats, but only Democrats accepted the payments,” said the Inquirer.

And all the Democrats were black, members of the Philadelphia delegation to the state legislature.

“Four state lawmakers took money, the sources said. State Rep. Ronald G. Waters accepted multiple payments totaling $7,650; State Rep. Vanessa Brown took $4,000; State Rep. Michelle Brownlee received $3,500; and State Rep. Louise Bishop took $1,500, said people with knowledge of the investigation.”

State Attorney General Kathleen Kane told the Inquirer she stopped the investigation because it was “poorly conceived, badly managed, and tainted by racism, saying it had targeted African Americans.”

In one exchange, the lobbyist — wired for sound —  went to State. Rep. Vanessa Brown’s office and “handed her an envelope with $2,000, according to people who have reviewed a transcript of a tape (the lobbyist) 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, (the lobbyist) urged her to vote against a bill that would require voters to show identification at the polls, the sources said.”

Black leaders claim voter ID laws are thinly veiled Republican attempts to suppress black voters because black people vote Democrat in overwhelming numbers.

In another recorded meeting in April 2011, to mark State Rep. Waters’ 61st birthday, the lobbyist  gave him $1,000, and the transaction was recorded on tape, according to people who read a transcript of the conversation.

As the lobbyist handed Waters an envelope, the sources said, Ali told him: “Hey, there’s $1,000 in there, bro.”  Waters replied: “My man, happy birthday to Ron Waters.”

All involved denied accepting illegal cash and gifts or said they could not remember.

The Inquirer described how the investigation had gathered 400 hours of audio and video recordings of the lobbyist meeting with public officials. But soon after Kane’s inauguration in 2013 as the first female and Democrat Attorney General in the state’s history, she began shutting the investigation down.

Then people connected to the investigation who saw the transcripts and read the recordings started talking to the Inquirer. Many of these people left the Attorney General’s office soon after Kane took office.

She told the Inquirer the allegations are a political and sexist and racist attack from her Republican enemies: “Nothing more than the Good Ol’ Boys club playing political games to discredit me in order to fulfill their own selfish and improper agenda.”

The story is rocketing through Philadelphia business and political circles. Some say the results of the investigation are just “business as usual.” Other criticize the past three Attorney Generals for working with the lobbyist who was under investigation for $430,000 in fraud as well as other cases of violations of election law.

Said one friend of Kane to the Inquirer: “Is this a John Grisham novel?”

They risked their careers and livelihood over just a few thousand dollars? They sold out cheap.

Sarrah Goldblume says:

Nothing is ever going to happen to these elected criminals until we hang them ourselves.

More examples of the insanity and criminality we all live in ? Is there any question that we live in massive illusions called government and a so-called legal system ? HA HA HA ! It is all a joke .

reason1984 says:

Kathleen Kane does it “Chicago Style.”

Recalling the NBPP voter intimidation case in Philadelphia, she’ make a fine addition to Holder’s merry band of obstructionists.

Onthebeachsyd says:

Black America keeps failing and the only response from the black community is a complete denial of responsibility.

The white community response is ….. What failure?

The three wise monkeys could learn a lot from politically correct America.

Meanwhile Hollywood churns out ‘slave movies’ so that blacks can feel justified in their modern failure and their resentment of whites 150 years after slavery was abolished ….. and white liberals can dress in sackcloth and ashes and enjoy an orgy of self –flagellation, making a real night of it, culminating in a hugely satisfying cathartic release of ‘guilt’ for crimes committed before their great great grandparents were born.

So the next time a white person is killed by a black person playing the “Knock-out game’, remember that this is justified because of all those terrible things Leonardo DeCaprio did to the black slaves in “Django Unchained”.

Always- even though it’s blatantly obvious they didn’t set out to sting blacks only, they are still going to chicken out and ‘play it safe’. It’s to where even the clueless public has to laugh about it.
Political correctness (PC) is a hammer they batter you with, to keep you in line. Our ‘elites’ have handed down their edicts, and our puppet politicians jump to obey.
I remember PC starting to form in the schools in the 70s; it wasn’t a good thing then.
But NOW it’s a vicious weapon and a reigning view, that is DANGEROUS for any little guy to go against.

Goodforall says:

Why does this seem to be a reoccurring event with the black elected officials? Marion Berry, Jessie Jackson Jr., Maxine Walters, Charles Rangel-it just keeps on going. It is rather pathetic.

Jack Laurie says:

It’s sad that a great state like Pennsylvania is so corrupted by the dirty Democrats and the city of Philadelphia…good rural areas of Pennsylvania are not represented properly by the state government…looks like the dirty media and stinking Democrats have the attitude that if you are black you are very special, untouchable, and laws and morals don’t apply to you

Goodforall says:

Why do you think they continue to bring up the slavery card-they refuse to move forward. But with idiots like Al Sharpton and Sheila Jackson Lee that just isn’t gonna change anytime soon. if ever.

Karen says:

This is common among this demographic. Jesse Jackson’s son and daughter-in-law are facing jail time for stealing money meant to help their own people, Ray Nagin is also facing jail time for stealing money. Obama’s mentor, Rev. Wright, has a daughter who has just been convicted for the embezzling from the non profit she ran and both Detroit and Chicago have former mayors serving time for stealing while in office. The MSM’s gutless Orwellian censorship in reporting any of this has not stopped the truth from getting out. The internet news sites are reporting these abuses of power and Youtube is filled with video footage of Black on White, Asian, and Hispanic crime victims, mostly filmed by the thugs committing the crimes as they are so “proud” of their vicious behavior. Fifty years of entitlements, reverse discrimination, and multi-generational welfare families have unleashed an out of control population of young male sociopaths that are wreaking havoc in our inner cities and we need drastic reform of these policies before the rest of our country goes the same way as Detroit.

WhiskeyJunkie says:

AG Kathleen Kane is the byproduct of the victimhood feminist movement narrative.
She will coddle those that also claim the same narrative, to the detriment of the larger community.

Of course the “patriarchy” is to blame. And, if you want to keep a job under her as a male, you’d best be a fully indoctrinated mangina, white knight simp, that caters to these victim themes. Forget about personal responsibility, accountability, and the outstanding evidence presented. It’s not surprising at all, that most women are liberals.

Philly, and other similar cities, will continue their slow and agonizing descent into liberal/progressive madness, until they resemble Detroit. The ones responsible of course, will do what most public officials do, regardless of gender or race, they will deny and never hold themselves accountable.

“Philly, and other similar cities, will continue their slow and agonizing descent into liberal/progressive madness, until they resemble Detroit.”

That’s what has been obvious to me, regarding everything about these urban governments.

Whether it’s Philadelphia, Detroit, Camden, Newark, New Orleans, E. St. Louis, Gary, East Chicago, Atlanta, on and on and on, all of them are trending toward Haiti, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Kenya.

They’ve be heading downward for quite a long time now and they give every indication that they’re in a death spiral.

And it isn’t just bad financial management and uncontrolled graft that’s causing the deterioration. Crime and violence is becoming the norm. It was always bad, but has gotten worse along with everything else.

A councilman in New Orleans requested the governor to send in National Guard troops to patrol the streets, and the same has been suggested for Chicago and many other cities.

The deterioration continues unabated.

WhiskeyJunkie says:

“The deterioration continues unabated.”

I’ll tell you why. The elites have been playing global chess, all to win at the game of musical chairs – which is basically Darwinism and survival of the fittest.

They have used state sponsored religion and academics to brainwash the masses to fall in line with their desires, and unwittingly doing the mass destruction and acquisition for them. They have done this for ages. It is tried and true. Divide and conquer is their mantra and they know it too well.

Soon, they like the diligent little squirrels they are, they will seek refuge in their self contained uber bunkers, laughing at the “entertainment” on the surface that they have designed and orchestrated. All of the useful idiots, including the majority of military and law enforcement will be sacrificed like the pawns they are.

Isn’t it telling, that it took a “civvy” like Colin to expose and write about these incidents? Meanwhile, those in-the-know were just worried about their paychecks. It needs to be stated – they are just dupes and mercs enforcing the elites whims. They are as useless, as the puppets in charge.

And here we have it – women in the majority, helping to destroy the last shreds of the Constitution, especially those of the first and second Amendments, and still demanding entitlements, and bringing others along for the ride.

Well, Atlas will shrug, and the coffers are hollow with fiat.

Goodforall says:

Ann Coulter called stupid single white women the most dangerous voting group that we face-and rightly so. There is no war on women-they just can’t seem to figure out the difference between right and wrong when it comes to choosing a political party to support. If they actually ever figured that the GOP was for the most part the best way to go the dems wouldn’t stand a chance. But I’m afraid it will never happen.

disqus_4Jy24XjH8I says:

You know, I have given a fair amount of thought to what you are saying about young women. As a middle-aged woman now, I look back on my young days and try to see myself in these young girls today. I was not AS looney left as they are today, but then but then the liberals of today are a WHOLE ‘NOTHER BREED.
My guesses as to their rabid liberalness are as follows: young women know they are going to have babies some day. For that they need a husband that can support them. IF they think that they may not be able to score the husband, the next best thing is to have welfare available (in their minds).
There is a certain fright that a young woman has, not knowing how she will support a baby on her own.
Nowadays, the girls are jaded and cynical: give me welfare, they yell.
They also have more compassion, since they are estrogen-driven, not testosterone-driven, so they want ‘good stuff’ for everyone. (They also have a bigger guilt complex than men).
So now we ask the question about their wild, liberal voting patterns: how do we stop them from voting like that?
Their parents MUST START THEM AT AN EARLY AGE, teaching them what consequences are, what justice is (NOT ‘social justice’), and that ‘welfare’ is the robbery of the public purse. It is reaching into someone else’s pocket WITHOUT their permission.
Also, they must not be afraid of the fact that they CAN make it on their own if there is a divorce. Yes, it’s hard, but you can do it- DON’T go the welfare route!
Young girls now are a complete waste of time in this department.
Not to be a hard-ass, but we need to raise the voting age up to 27.
Nuff said.

Goodforall says:

That was a well thought out answer, and one that makes a lot of sense. I’m 62, and in my day the girls had plenty of compassion but were taught to be responsible for the decisions they made. Very few got pregnant out of wedlock. It just seems they took better care to ensure not putting themselves into that situation. With the current welfare system, it takes a lot of that responsibility away and places it on we the tax payers-hence many have multiple “baby daddies” and thinking it is something cool. And we both know it’s the kids that suffer the consequences-and that is very sad. To further your point, more married women tend to understand that much better and accept the responsibility to take the proper precautions. Lets face it, our major issued are with a society that thinks the good things in life are owed to them instead of them having to work for them. I really don’t see any end to this-we seem to be a Greece waiting to happen. I sure hope not.

disqus_4Jy24XjH8I says:

Thanx for the response.
Unfortunately, we are indeed a Greece waiting to happen.

WhiskeyJunkie says:

Single White women? Ha! Women in general are innately socialist and vote as collectives for women’s benefit – never mind how it all turns out for the rest. Sound familiar?
The evidence is available worldwide presently, and throughout history.

Goodforall says:

Agreed! But more married women voted the other way than the single ones.

WhiskeyJunkie says:

Ahhh, but here’s the rub…

Would they have voted the same way regardless if they weren’t married? Very few women are truly independent thinkers. That’s why “equality” for women is really about privilege and entitlements without the shared responsibilities and obligations of men.

‘Traditionalist’ women are concerned that men are leaving the “plantation”, and are not truly concerned for men’s well being and personhood.

How many single women, regardless of race, are staunch constitutionalists, and defenders of the first & second Amendments? How many of them are self defense & gun ownership proponents, regardless of political leanings?
The numbers speak for themselves and most women.

In this day of so called “equality”, how many women still expect many things because “you’re a man”?
Meanwhile, a man can NEVER have expectations of a woman because she is. That would patriarchal and misogynistic!

Goodforall says:

You know, I can’t add one thing to your comment. I think you’ve covered it-well said! Buy you will never get most of the women to admit this, even though it is the truth.

Terence Sommer says:

Talking about the left tending to it’s sacred cows.
