Top Pennsylvania prosecutor seeks to draw attention away from criminal charges she faces

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.
