A closed corruption investigation, Kathleen Kane, and what it all says about Pennsylvania government


Guests: John Baer, Dave Davies and Patrick Kerstra
Since the Philadelphia Inquirer broke the story two weeks ago that Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane closed down a corruption investigation involving four area legislators and a former judge, the case has taken some intriguing twists and turns. It’s triggered an unusual critique by Philly District Attorney Seth Williams against fellow democrat Kane, has observers scratching their heads about the motivations of the Attorney General and everyone involved, and raises a host of concerns about governing in the Commonwealth. In this hour of Radio Times — what we know about the investigation and what we don’t know, and what it says about how business gets done in Harrisburg. Our guests are JOHN BAER of the Daily News, WHYY’s DAVE DAVIES, and freelance journalist PATRICK KERKSTRA.
