An investigative report on Philadelphia Traffic Court portrays it as a place where ticket-fixing is rampant, with "two tracks of justice - one for the connected and another for the unwitting general public."
I'm sure the new Democrat Attorney General of Pennsylvania (Kathleen Kane) will get right on that. She's very experienced in dealing with such issues.The report, commissioned by Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille, says Traffic Court staff identified the offices of U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, chairman of the Democratic Party in Philadelphia, as a frequent "requestor" of such "special consideration" - an allegation that Brady denied.
I'm sure she has tips for everyone.Pennsylvania Attorney General candidate Kathleen Kane had 15 parking tickets all dismissed by the same Judge, Scranton Magistrate Alyce Hailstone. The tickets were written between 1998 and 2001 and the dismissals happened between 2002 and 2009. In one case a ticket was written 3/12/99 but wasn't dismissed until 7/9/09, over 10 years.
