Pennsylvania Democrat AG Kathleen Kane Found Guilty on All Counts in Perjury/Obstruction of Justice Prosecution
Update: Resigns

Update: She's resigned to spend more time with her perjuries.


Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane Tuesday announced that she will resign her position as Attorney General effective at the close of business Wednesday, Aug. 17.

I have been honored to serve the people of Pennsylvania and I wish them health and safety in all their days, Kane said.

Then she immediately began leaking derogatory information about the judge, bailiffs, and jurors.

...

I mentioned her party affiliation in the headline; CBS will make you wait a bit before disclosing that tidbit.

The state's attorney general was convicted Monday of all nine counts in a perjury and obstruction case related to a grand jury leak.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane showed little emotion as jurors announced their verdict late Monday. The jurors agreed the first-term Democrat leaked information about a 2009 grand jury probe to embarrass a rival prosecutor.

After the conviction, Pennsylvania's governor renewed his call for Kane to resign. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf called it a "sad day" for Pennsylvania, adding, "There should be no question" that Kane, a fellow Democrat, should resign immediately.

In closing arguments, a lawyer for Kane blamed her former top aides for the leak of grand jury material, which found its way to a newspaper. Kane wanted the public to know her predecessor had failed to prosecute a case involving an NAACP official, but she never authorized the leak of secret criminal files, said her lawyer, Seth Farber.

Instead, he said, Kane's chief deputy, Adrian King, abused his power when he sent the files to a reporter through Kane's political consultant. King and the consultant, Josh Morrow, testified against Kane last week.

Morrow, who had a grant of immunity, said he and Kane devised a cover-up story that framed King for the leak. He acknowledged telling the lie to a grand jury....
.

The leak grew out of Kane's feud with former office prosecutor Frank Fina, he said. According to trial testimony, Kane believed Fina had planted a story that showed she had dropped a statehouse sting.

"She was just hell-bent on getting back at Frank Fina," Morrow testified last week, describing Kane as "unhinged" at the time.

She sounds insane to me.
