Sunday March 16, 2014 at 11:41 am and The Inquirer are reporting a three year sting operation of Philadelphia elected officials was shut down in 2013 by Attorney General Kathleen Kane.


From the Inquirer.

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.
