This is outrageous. Kathleen Kane’s story should be big news…but you haven’t heard a peep out of the male-stream media.
…because if something bad is happening to a woman and a man is responsible, you’re not going to hear about it by male owned media. Hell, you won’t even hear about it by woman-owned media because the ones that make it that far are traitors to their own sex. (As I write that, I’m thinking about how the show “Friends” used to promote pornography as a positive thing.)
It is outrageous that they are taking the step of removing her license, therefore her ability to do her job AND earn a living if she loses that job. The ability to take away a license, as the article states, was put in place to prevent crooks from practicing law. By all accounts, Kathleen Kane is doing what her job demands of her by shining a light on reprehensible behavior.
The state constitution requires the attorney general to be a licensed lawyer. But the court said in the order that its action should not be construed as removing her from office….
Bullshit. That is the only way these scumbags can get away with taking away her power because they can’t remove her from office without showing wrongdoing…because if there were actual wrongdoing, you can be assured that they would be filing charges to remove her from office, not taking away her license to practice.
In statements issued through her office, Kane, 49, said she was disappointed in the court’s action and would not resign. She maintained her innocence and vowed to continue to fight to clear her name.
Then, Kane called attention to a pornographic email scandal uncovered by her office that involved numerous current and former officials there and claimed the job last year of a state Supreme Court justice.
See…she’s messing with the status quo. The good old boys. The sexist misogynists who act like perpetual seventeen year olds who want all of the fun and none of the responsibility of being an adult. (Background on the whole story here.)
Kane said she would continue to root out “the culture of misogyny and racially/religiously offensive behavior that has permeated law enforcement and members of the judiciary in this Commonwealth for years.”
Bravo to you, Kathleen Kane. And good luck with that.
You realize now that you’ll be labeled a bitch and a lesbian or worse…not that it matters, because you are fighting the good fight…but they are useful tools to cast uppity women into that light to turn public opinion against you.
The article goes on to put her in a bad light by saying there was a “mass exodus of top aides..” and “fumbled corruption cases…” plus feuds with Republicans. Wow, you would think this never happens to male politicians. It’s a subtle jab at her being a woman and that she isn’t qualified to hold such an important office.
In the Senate, the potential for the court’s action has prompted Senate lawyers to research a never-used constitutional provision that allows a two-thirds vote of senators to remove certain elected officials.
This tells you everything you need to know. A NEVER USED CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION TO REMOVE ELECTED OFFICIALS is now being used against a woman who is fed up with the sexism, misogyny, and racism goings on in government (and society for that matter) and dared to raise her voice and say “NO! I’M NOT PUTTING UP WITH IT ANY LONGER!”
She has never been permitted to present evidence or confront a witness against her…
Bingo. This is a direct violation of the Sixth Amendment:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.
American citizens have the right to know what they are being accused of, to confront people who claim to be witnesses, and to have an attorney represent their interests in court.
What’s really telling about this case is the graphic nature of the emails and how this guy was in charge of the Sandusky case.
And they wonder why women don’t report rapes, violence, and other assaults. No justice.
