Kathleen Kane is neighboring Pennsylvania’s Attorney General. She is also in the uncomfortable position of being indicted last week for perjury, conspiracy and obstructing justice, official oppression and false swearing. Fellow Democrat, Governor Tom Wolf, looking out for himself, has called for her to resign. I guess the lynch mob mentality is alive and well, but to her credit Kane refused saying it would be an admission of guilt and she is not guilty. If she is guilty, she had better make a deal. Attorneys General do not fare well in prison. If not, I hope she exposes the conspiracy. Time will tell. It would not hurt for her to take a leave of absence to focus on clearing her name. The people deserve to know that their Attorney General is trustworthy. She no longer has the confidence of law enforcement officials that she is claimed to have been trying embarrass or many people even in her own party. She has to earn that back. Declaring for reelection is stunning.
I was imagining how much coverage this would get if she were a Republican. Wolf would not be alone in his lynch mob. I guess it is expected for Democrats to abuse their office. Republicans have a great opportunity for a pick up here.
