Saturday Morning Politics Thread: ABP (Anything But POTUS) [Y-not]

How about a roundup of political stories outside the Presidential primary?

First, from PENNSYLVANIA! In a shocking turn of events, Democrat Attorney General Kathleen Kane may actually be removed from office.

On October 26, 2015, the Pennsylvania Senate established a special committee to determine whether Kane should face a removal vote. The committee is chaired by Sen. John Gordner (R) and the other members are: Sens. Lisa Baker (R), Art Haywood (D), Judy Schwank (D), Sean Wiley (D) and Gene Yaw (R). Senate President Pro Tempore Scarnati will serve as a seventh voting member. The committee is tasked with evaluating whether the Senate should move toward removing Kane by holding a formal hearing. The committee plans to submit a preliminary report within 30 days. Kane's defense team said it will fight the Senate's removal effort.

She also pissed off a judge:


In a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review report Thursday, a former statewide grand jury judge, Barry Feudale, accused Kane or her agents of breaking into his office in the disappearance of three sensitive files in 2013.

"That's a burglary," Feudale said. "It's a theft."

Later Thursday, Feudale put out a statement calling Kane "the most corrupt, dishonest, deceptive politically motivated'public servant' I have encountered in my 28 years as a judge."

Given how rarely a Democrat is punished for misdeeds, I assume she committed some grave offense to the Progressive agenda leading to her possibly being held accountable.

Meanwhile, in Kentucky Republican Matt Bevin still trails Democrat Jack Conway in the race for governor. I don't have much to add to this except to say that Conway reminds me of one of the lesser (and dimmer) Kennedys, trading on his family name. It'll be depressing if he wins, but based on television ads and this poll, it doesn't look good. The steaming turd on top of this sh1t sandwich are the anti-Bevin ads Conway is running that feature hits by Team McConnell. Awesome.

Last weekend I put a link to the results of the Louisiana elections in the sidebar. Vitter will be facing Democrat Bel Edwards in a runoff on November 21st. I gather that the Democrat is running as a conservative, including supporting the expansion of Jindal's privatization of Medicaid. Vitter is reportedly undecided on this issue.

You can find a full roundup of 2015 elections at Ballotpedia.


Are there any elections or ballot initiatives that we should be watching in your home states?
