Grand jury recommends criminal charges against AG Kane, newspaper says.

HARRISBURG — A statewide grand jury will recommend criminal charges against the state's top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Kathleen Kane, including perjury and contempt of court, stemming from an investigation of whether her office leaked grand jury information to a Philadelphia newspaper.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, citing unnamed sources, reported Thursday that the grand jury meeting in Montgomery County found evidence of wrongdoing and recommended Kane be criminally charged.

Kane's Washington-based attorney, Lanny Davis, said he could not confirm the Inquirer's report.

Kane has claimed innocence. HARRISBURG — Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Friday that a “fair and impartial review of the facts” will conclude she has done nothing illegal and is under political attack.

In her first public statement since a Philadelphia newspaper's report that a grand jury will recommend criminal charges against Kane for leaking confidential information, she said, “This seems to me to be another political attack on my attempt to clean up Harrisburg and its political culture. They have fought me all the way, including an effort to impeach me.”

It launches on Monday, Jan. 12.

This is the day I have waited for for six months....

It is snowing, I'm sitting here watching the birds and making a pot of soup. And I have nowhere to go! (Schools are closed anyhow, but I don't have to make the day up in April!)

Retirement is the greatest thing ever.

Today is also Christmas Eve for Orthodox Christians!

Fight the Pipelines in Pennsylvania (good op-ed):

Fight the pipelines in Pennsylvania

Local communities should have a say in how natural gas is shipped across our state, argues RYAN M. HROBAK of Armstrong County
January 4, 2015

Pennsylvanians, beware. Pipelines may soon be ferrying natural gas liquids from one side of Pennsylvania to the other. Recent events indicate that environmentally destructive leakage is part and parcel of the pipeline proposition.

Sunoco Logistics recently announced its intention to construct a new gas pipeline, Mariner East 2, from eastern Ohio, through the West Virginia panhandle and southwestern Pennsylvania, and terminating in Delaware County, from where it could be exported overseas or shipped throughout the northeastern United States. The pipeline would run parallel to the currently unusable Mariner East 1, which Sunoco Logistics has begun repurposing.

Sunoco Logistics recently made another announcement — having to do with its liability for a major crude oil spill outside of Shreveport, La., in October from its Mid-Valley pipeline that extends from Texas to Michigan. This “leak” dumped 189,000 gallons of crude oil into the local ecosystem, polluting one of Louisiana’s ecologically rich bayous that flows into Caddo Lake.

Sunoco Logistics’ Mid-Valley pipeline also leaked in March, spilling more than 20,000 gallons of crude oil into Oak Glen Nature Preserve in southwestern Ohio. That’s two major pipeline leaks within the past year.
