Pennsylvania AG Criminally Charged

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has been charged with perjury and obstructing administration of law. According to the case brought by Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman, Kane allegedly leaked confidential investigative information and secret grand jury information, “in hopes of embarrassing and harming former state prosecutors she believed, without evidence, made her look bad,” Ferman said. In a statement Thursday, Kane denied any wrongdoing and vowed to fight the charges; later, Gov. Tom Wolf called on her to resign. If convicted, she will be immediately removed from office.
