Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Is Convicted on All Counts
NORRISTOWN, Pa. She was a rising Democratic star. She was the first in her party to be elected state attorney general. She was one of the most powerful women in Pennsylvania.
But on Monday night, Kathleen G. Kane, the states top prosecutor, became a convicted criminal.
Update: Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane resigned Tuesday.
jury found Ms. Kane, 50, guilty of nine criminal charges, including perjury and criminal conspiracy, convicting her of leaking grand jury information, and then lying about it, in an effort to discredit a political rival.
Ms. Kane was caught up in a web of scandal and counterscandal, threaded with lewd emails, political rivalries and alleged leaks. It has cost other state officials, including two State Supreme Court justices, their jobs and Ms. Kane her law license, although she has remained on the job as attorney general.
I'm having not such a good day. Using the tens unit, lots of ice and prescribed pain killers with little relief. I find posting more distracting than anything else. So? And I largely post serious stories.
Is this DURHAM D critic the official Opening Post counter or something? The real problem is unequal justice between Republicans and Democrats in court. For example, elected criminals in the Republican Party plan to bring more charges, as courts overlook every kind of perverse crime with Trump, including rape of a 13 year old.
Several posters seem to be upset with her today so I was trying to figure out why. Took awhile but found it.
