Attorney General Kathleen Kane has been indicted this morning by the Montgomery County District AttorneyÂ for leaking grand jury information, and then attempting to cover it up. This woman has been slimy from the minute Bloomberg helped buy her office. Remember, she did not run on gun control; she exploited the Penn State scandal, and people’s anger with Corbett over that scandal, to sail into office. The Montgomery County DA Risa Vetri Ferman, is a Republican, so I would expect at least some accusations of a partisan witch hunt to be tossed around, but probably not much. She’s pooped in a lot of other people’s pools, and even many Democrats are sick of her. No doubtÂ Seth WilliamsÂ is smiling coyly today.
Now the question is whether she will resign. I sincerely hope so. I doubt that will do much to help our reciprocity agreements, since Kane’s replacement was picked by her, but it’s time to be over this controversy. Kane was considered a rising star in Pennsylvania Democratic Politics. Now she’s ruined. She’ll be lucky if Orange doesn’t end up becoming the New Black for her.
