Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane should have been prepared.
This has been coming for months.
The A-G was accused of leaking information from an investigation –
To a Philadelphia newspaper –
Then lying to a grand jury about it.
The grand jury recommended charges against Kane and –
The case was turned over to the Montgomery County District Attorney.
Now the DA has filed charges against Kane –
Including perjury –
Official oppression –
And obstruction of justice.
Back in June – we said Kane should resign if charged.
It would not be – as she insists –
An admission of guilt.
We agree with Governor Tom Wolf –
Who’s a Democrat like Kane.
He says she’s entitled to her day in court –
But she can’t function as Pennsylvania’s top law enforcement officer –
And focus on her defense.
The reality check?
If Kathleen Kane doesn’t go willingly – she can be forced out.
That’s not good for her –
The Office of the Attorney General –
Or the taxpayers and citizens of Pennsylvania.
Right now, Kathleen Kane can only best serve Pennsylvania by resigning from the State Attorney General’s office.
