A Kathleen Kane footnote, on forfeiture

The office of now-convicted Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane kept the existence of a pile of seized money secret for nearly two years: “Not until the state attorney general’s office filed a forfeiture petition for the money [nearly $1.8 million] in Cumberland County Court on June 16, did its existence become public.” [Allentown Morning Call/Philly.com]

    “In storage, the money could not have collected interest for the state coffers as it would have in a bank.”

    That was the FIRST thing I thought of. Perhaps if Kane’s office had taken NINETY THOUSAND DOLLARS and set it on fire, it would have gotten a bigger play in the story.
