Kathleen Kane to face trial for perjury and other charges:

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane will face a criminal trial on charges of leaking confidential information, then lying about it under oath and ordering a subordinate to spy on the investigation into her actions, a judge ruled Monday.

After a hearing in Norristown at which prosecutors outlined their case against Kane, Magisterial Judge Cathleen Kelly Rebar said there was enough evidence to hold Kane for a full trial.

Prosecutors say Kane broke the law by orchestrating a leak to a newspaper reporter in a bid to embarrass a foe. Using excerpts from Kane's testimony before the grand jury that investigated that leak, prosecutors attempted to show that the attorney general lied about her actions when questioned under oath.

If convicted of perjury, she could face up to seven years behind bars.

3. I'd expect this sort of thing from a Republican. It looks like she actually did what she's accused..

of. But at least its not a violent crime or or some sort of theft. Its sad she let her anger get the best of her judgement.
