Kathleen Kane

Summary: Police searched Pennsylvania AG Kathleen Kane’s office again Thursday. It’s unclear whether the new search warrant was related to charges pending against her.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General swears she is innocent but investigators must have some evidence to allow them to execute a new search warrant on her office. AG Kathleen Kane has been charged with leaking confidential information to a newspaper reporter and then lying about it.

As the Montgomery County detectives waited outside her office across the street from the Capitol, they declined to comment on what they were looking for. Kane’s spokesman, Chuck Ardo, says the office is cooperating with the investigation. Ardo claims he has no way of knowing whether the detectives are looking for items related to the charges against Kane or something else.

Kane was charged on August 6 for perjury, obstruction, and other offenses. She was the first woman and Democrat elected as attorney general of Pennsylvania. Authorities say she released secret information from a 2009 grand jury case.

The Montgomery County District Attorney, Risa Ferman, says her office is looking into allegations that the staff attorney who built the case against Kane was fired.

Kane claims officials targeted her because she attempted to take down a corrupt, old-boy law enforcement network that was exchanging pornographic emails between state employees on state computers. An agency that investigates the misconduct of state lawyers wants her law license suspended so she can no longer interfere with the administration of justice.

Kane says she will run for her second term in 2016.
