Pennsylvania AG Kathleen Kane resigns after perjury conviction

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, an ally of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, announced her resignation Tuesday, a day after a jury convicted her of perjury and other charges in a scheme to smear a political rival.

Kane, a Democrat in her first term, once considered one of the state party’s rising stars, said she would leave office at the end of the day on Wednesday. The move came shortly after Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf had called on her to quit.

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

A jury Monday night convicted her of abusing the powers of the state’s top law enforcement office to malign a political rival, and of lying under oath to cover up her actions. Sentencing is set for Oct. 24; the felony charges carry a maximum penalty of seven years in prison.

Mr. Wolf said Kane’s resignation “will allow the people of Pennsylvania to finally move on from this situation.”

    A Democrat being held accountable for lying? Call Guinness.

    Wolf will pardon her thereby tell all criminals to go ahead and commit your crimes since if you do not get caught ‘GREAT!’ but if you do get caught your Governor will pardon you. For God’s sake vote TRUMP and stop this criminal government.

  • Ken says says:

    She thought she could pull a Hillary but not enough money or political buyouts. Put her in jail in a cell where she can watch Hillary operate.

    And why is Hellary not paying the price, If I were this woman I’d say I’ve done no worse than Hellary and expect the same treatment! I want them both to go away, but it’s just the point of it that nothing happens to Hellary!

  • Mark Terzano says:

    This one is going to jail for seven years, does that mean that Hillary is going to jail for 500 years?

  • Jerry says:

    I wonder if this will be hildabitch in Oct?

  • CharlieSeattle says:


    Kathleen Kane did not use the “intent” defense that FBI Director Comey used to give Clinton a pass on her breaches of US law?

    I am shocked! It was so simple!

    Kane, “I did not intend to commit perjury!”
    Judge, Oh, OK. Case dismissed!

    Another corrupt democrat. The party of criminals and losers bites the dust again. Did you hear about the anti-gun CA democrat that was arrested for gun running? Those democrats are the most evil thing to hit politics.

    Another self-serving Hillary Clinton wannabee in training.

    Much better if she had Not resigned. Would be appropriate to see a Democratic Attorney General in prison, hopefully wearing an orange jumpsuit.

    No surprise, another dem caught lying! What an infamous bunch running with the Clintons. Many are convicted felons. Chelsey’s father in law is one.

      The surprise is that she resigned. It leaves me wondering if she would have resigned if the governor had been a Republican.
