Editorials from around Pennsylvania:
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is defending the handling of a Philadelphia public corruption investigation by fellow Democrat Kathleen Kane, the state's attorney general.
District Attorney Seth Williams is criticizing Attorney General Kathleen Kane's decision to scuttle a sting operation in which eight people - including four Democratic state lawmakers - were allegedly caught on recordings accepting money or gifts.
The head of Common Cause Pennsylvania on Thursday renewed the organization's call for a ban on gifts to public officials, citing news reports that four state lawmakers were caught on tape accepting money from a confidential informant during a criminal investigation.
When a public official is caught on tape taking a bribe, it's usually only a matter of time before he can expected to be fitted in an orange jumpsuit. In one famous corruption sting that began in 1979, FBI agents pretended to be Middle Eastern sheiks handing out bribes to a United States senator, five members of the House and several members of the Philadelphia city council. With dramatic video footage, all were convicted.
Kane has said she abandoned the investigation into the public officials because of concerns it was poorly managed, it may have improperly targeted subjects based on their race and it was not likely to result in any successful prosecutions.
"We reviewed this case and according to our standards of prosecution, according to our duty, according to the law and according to our high professional morals and ethics, we said that we could not prosecute this case and it should not be prosecuted," Kane said Thursday.
