HARRISBURG, Pa. – Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane says she's said all that her lawyers will allow her to about pending criminal charges that threaten to end her career.
At a Wednesday news conference, Kane didn't address the allegations but said she's innocent of any wrongdoing. She spent more time blaming her legal problems on what she described as a scheme to conceal pornographic and racially insensitive emails circulated among judges and state prosecutors.
A suburban prosecutor has accused Kane of leaking grand jury information to a newspaper reporter in an attempt to embarrass a former prosecutor she believed made her look bad, and then lying about her actions under oath.
The 49-year-old Kane has not entered a plea. She faces up to seven years in prison on the most serious charge, perjury.
