Cash Payoffs, Porngate and the Kathleen Kane Scandal headline “Keystone Corruption Continues”

kcc_fcHARRISBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Keystone Corruption Continues: Cash Payoffs, Porngate and the Kathleen Kane Scandal, Brad Bumsted’s latest compilation of Pennsylvania state government malfeasance.

About the Book:
Once again, a crime wave swept through Pennsylvania state government. During a 17-month period from early 2015 through mid-2016,  a sitting state treasurer, and a former state treasurer, both statewide elected officials who were guardians of taxpayers’ money, were charged with crimes, as was an ex-Governor’s chief of staff and the attorney general, the state’s chief law enforcement officer. It was preceded by a sting investigation that resulted in state legislators videotaped taking cash from an undercover operative posing as a lobbyist and an alleged pay to play scheme at the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Porn and off-color emails  on government computers took out two Supreme Court justices. It’s all in Brad Bumsted’s latest book: Keystone Corruption Continues: Cash Payoffs, Porngate and the Kathleen Kane Scandal.
