Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Kathleen Kane apparently took the limitations of her power too far and has been arraigned. The state’s Top Cop was charged with violating grand jury secrecy laws, leaking details of an investigation to retaliate against a political enemy and lying about it under oath.
Kane, who had Bill Clinton’s support during her campaign and who Chris Matthews declared to have Presidential potential, refuses to resign from office. Philly.com described her as being “bent on retaliation,” as she allegedly abused the powers of her office.
Kane’s issues with her partisan leveling of justice apparently occurred early into her term when in her first year in office, she declined to press charges and shut down an undercover sting that caught her fellow Democrats taking cash and jewelry.
The national mainstream media doesn’t appear to be interested in this story. At the time of this writing, CNN and MSNBC don’t even mention this important news on the home pages of their websites. If they ever bother covering this story, I wonder if they will mention Kane’s political party.
Do you think the media would be highlighting Kane’s arrest if she were a Republican? Please comment below.
