24 April Democratic Primary Attorney General Kane Is Able and TeamObama Patrick Murphy, Establishment Insider
Kathleen Kane is an experienced prosecutor who has prosecuted rapists and who is INDEPENDENT of the leadership of both parties.
Patrick Murphy served in Iraq in Judge Advocate General's Corp. We thank him for his service in Iraq against the enemies of American Freedom. This is no small thing.
Patrick Murphy seems to look at the office of Attorney General as an opportunity for higher office or other personal benefit which compromises and politicizes his prosecutorial discretion. Patrick Murphy is endorsed and inextricably entwined with Democratic Party Establishment; Patrick Murphy is NOT INDEPENDENT of party leadership which further compromises his prosecutorial judgment.
The Republican Candidate Dave Freed is compromised and conflicted because of his close familial, financial and political ties to his father-in-law, his children's grandfather, former Republican Attorney General LeRoy Zimmerman, and someone under investigation by the Attorney General's office, the very office his political protégé, Dave Freed, is seeking. Republican Dave Freed's prosecutorial judgment must be considered compromised because of his lack of independence from both is his political and financial mentor, LeRoy Zimmerman, as well as his lack of independence from the BrabenderCoxBrianNuttTomCorbett Insider Network.
There remains open the Senate Bonusgate investigation as well as questions about the 9 year delay between the rape of a ten year old, witnessed by a credible witness, and indictment and arrest. LeRoy Zimmerman, legally, enriched himself, like so many other Harrisburg Establishment Insiders, at the expense of the Hershey Trust as the Inquirer's reporter Bob Fernandez and others have written about Read More at The Liberty Blog
As liberal Democrat Inquirer Karen Heller, a columnist and not a reporter, accurately points out, (Inquirer March 25, 2012) Kathleen Kane is independent and experienced and better funded than Patrick Murphy. Not mentioned is former Democratic President Bill Clinton's endorsement, no small thing.
Given the highly charged political issues of Senate Bonusgate, Sandusky Child Rape and Molestation Case, and LeRoy Zimmerman, independence is, to my view, the most distinguishing and important difference between the very qualified Kathleen Kane and all the other two candidates.
Analyzing the candidates as objectively as I can, I have to conclude that Kathleen Kane will be the choice of independent voters in November so I hope Democratic primary voters choose Kathleen Kane as their nominee. It is time for a Democrat independent of the Republican controlled Senate, Republican controlled House, the Republican Governor and independent of the Unions to be Pennsylvania's Chief Law Enforcement Officer.
Karen Heller has written a perceptive column. I would only quibble that Gov. Corbett is not what I, and many others, would consider "conservative" and I would not emphasize "female" because polling profile is that that women are weak on law enforcement. Knowing many Republican women, including the Sheriff of Montgomery County and the DA of Montgomery County, this is far from true but it also a statistical fact.
Independence and competence! Kathleen Kane, a prosecutor, not a politician, is what compels me to support this candidate.
