The betrayal from within his office to see him thrown out of office finally reached the man who was perhaps his closest friend and advisor. For 30 years, Ezra Stone has advised Kane and stood by his side as he grew through the ranks to rule Chicago with an iron fist.
In a final session, after his betrayal was revealed, Stone explained the reason he turned his back on Kane. It was because Kane had stopped doing things for the good of the city and instead was doing them for self-preservation. Only this meeting perhaps didn't happen at all, and was instead Kane seeing this in himself.
Kane knows what he is, but he is it anyway. He had his daughter incarcerated to further his own agenda and boost his public opinion long enough to get his man elected. There is no depth to which he will not stoop, as proven when he had Stone eliminated.
