PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pennsylvania’s Governor, top judge, and other critics continue to put pressure on State Attorney General Kathleen Kane as the political porn scandal continues to rock Harrisburg.

But Kane told KDKA’s Kym Gable, in an exclusive interview, that she will only release additional names if and when her office deems it legal.

Kane was in Squirrel Hill Monday night for a forum on protecting children from online predators.

After the seminar, Gable asked Kane about the probe into at least three dozen current or former state employees who sent or received hundreds of sexually explicit photos, videos and messages from state email accounts from 2008-2012.

Kane has only released a handful of names.

Gable: “There is a significant public interest in that email revelation. Where does that investigation stand?”

Kane: “At this point, we have put out into the public as much as… the individuals’ names according to the Right To Know within the boundaries of the law that we have. There are some additional requests from others and we’re working on that right now.”

Gable: “So we can expect more names to be released?”

Kane: “That depends. We have to see who the names are. We have to go through the legalities. I always make sure we are within the boundaries of the law. Right now, there are a number of requests in. We are reviewing the requests.”

Gable: “What conversations have you had with the Chief Justice? (Ronald Castille) He expressed concern about the judges being involved. Have you spoken to him?”

Kane: “I have spoken with the Chief Justice. But I think it’s more up to the Chief Justice to tell you what our conversation was.”
