Former Pa. AG Kathleen Kane released from jail



Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
7/31/19

EAGLEVILLE, Pa. — A former Pennsylvania attorney general who was convicted of leaking grand jury material and lying about it is out of jail, walking free Wednesday after serving eight months behind bars.

Kathleen Kane left the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in the Philadelphia suburbs about 8:20 a.m. When asked by a reporter how she felt, Kane replied “grateful.”

Kane resigned after being convicted in 2016 of perjury, obstruction and other counts for leaking grand jury material to a Philadelphia newspaper and lying about it.

The Scranton native was a little-known former assistant county prosecutor when she ran for attorney general with a campaign largely financed by her then-husband, who helped run a family-owned trucking and warehousing business.

Megan Rapinoe (US Women's World Cup soccer star) has 2 books in the works

U.S. Soccer Champion Megan Rapinoe Lands Two-Book Deal For Memoir And Middle-Grade Title
Forbes 7/25/19

Penguin Press president and editor in chief Ann Godoff noted to the Times that Rapinoe “has a different platform” than many of her fellow female soccer players who’ve penned memoirs. “She’s just operating from this very honest and straightforward and ‘This is who I am’ place. I think that’s what many people aspire to,” Godoff said.

Rapinoe has been outspoken about her political views and the power of being an openly gay professional athlete. “I think female athletes in general are at the forefront of every protest in general because we’re gay, we’re women, we’re women of color, we’re sort of everything all at one time,” she told NBC News.

Rapinoe is one of the subjects of Caitlin Murray’s April 2019 nonfiction book, National Team: The Inside Story of the Women Who Changed Soccer (Harry N. Abrams) as well as the subject of two forthcoming biographies, one by Jill Sherman aimed at children ages six to nine to be published next week by Amicus Ink, the other, Megan Rapinoe: Soccer Superstar by Anthony K. Hewson to be published October 1 by North Star Editions.

Several of Rapinoe’s soccer colleagues have also written books. Rapinoe’s teammate, Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan, wrote 2015 children’s book Breakaway: Beyond the Goal (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers). Carli Lloyd wrote, with Wayne Coffey, 2015 New York Times bestseller When Nobody Was Watching: My Hard-Fought Journey to the Top of the Soccer World (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Abby Wambach has written three books, 2015 New York Times bestseller Forward: A Memoir (Dey Street Books), as well as a young readers’ edition of the same title, along with 2019’s WOLFPACK: How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game (Celadon Books).
