PA Democrats Took Bribes to Oppose Voter ID: Where Is Holder?

March 19th, 2014 - 7:24 am

Pennsylvania Democrats were caught on surveillance tape reportedly accepting cash bribes in return for opposing voter ID in the Pennsylvania legislature. Gifts of Tiffany’s jewelry were also given to Democrat legislators from Philadelphia, reportedly in exchange for “NO” votes on a Pennsylvania voter ID bill that passed in 2012.

Despite this evidence, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has not charged any officials. Kane is a Democrat.

Kane’s excuse for her inaction? Racism: some of the legislators caught on tape accepting bribes were black Democrats from Philadelphia. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

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.

Fine — a Pennsylvania Democrat won’t do anything about other corrupt Pennsylvania Democrats. But what about Eric Holder? After all, Holder has shown a tough-as-nails willingness to go after elected officials who accept gifts in exchange for official actions.

Just ask Bob McDonnell, former governor of Virginia, who now faces multiple criminal charges for doing just that.

We all know that Eric Holder's Department of Justice is the most corrupt and racist since the Grant Administration. He runs the Department of Just Us, and since all of the figures in the PA imbroglio happen to belong to Just Us, don't expect him to do anything.

We'll be seeing a lot more of this.

Just not in the mainstream media.

I smell federal "stimulus" funds at work, now cooked into the spending books in perpetuity until someone with the stones to take this crap head on arrives. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee can't take all the arrows from the leftist establishment, which can be found on both sides of the phony aisle in congress. The mostly silent majority who care need to spend the time to get educated on who supports what in order to keep voting appropriately. The left, like rust, never surrenders.

Like rats scurrying from a sinking ship I tell you!! The bribes were also offered to republicans and not a one took the bribe. There are similar story's this week in California and the Democratic mayor of Charlotte was caught taking a bribe yesterday. He's only been in office six months. These people know that conservatives, libertarians and Tea Partiers are coming out in droves to crush them in November. Democrats are going to get run out of most state legislatures too. They are in "take what you can get now" mode. They're Pilfering, stealing, dealing and swindling money to line their pockets before they are run out of town. Ironic that this is the party that claims to stand for the little guy. They rant about income inequality? Apparently they like income, even the illegal kind, which is why they throw these young people and minorities crumbs in the form government handouts so they can remain in a position of authority and continue to pad their bank accounts with five and six figure salaries, bribes, jewelry etc.... They make me sick! And those in higher office, that refuse to prosecute, are even greater enemies of democracy.

Hercules couldn't muck out these filthy stalls. trouble is, 99%+ of blacks see no problem w/ this sort of blatant and illegal chicanery. 'splains a lot. I have yet to meet any bro's down here who have any problem at all w/ this most corrupt administration since Caligula.

good. that will make it easier to tell friend from zombie foe when the accounting finally comes home to roost; and, it will. elections have consequences - so does treason. it becomes painfully more obvious every day that we have just barely cracked the lid on this septic stable of psychotic sociopaths.

btw, the m.s.m. is all over this. film at 11ish.
