Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane – the state’s top law enforcement official – has been sent to prison. In 2007, she had a position on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

She was found guilty of 9 criminal charges, including perjury, criminal conspiracy, leaking grand jury information then lying about it. She is a criminal!

Ms. Kane was caught up in a web of scandal and counter scandal, threaded with lewd emails, political rivalries and alleged leaks. It has cost other state officials, including two State Supreme Court justices, their jobs and Ms. Kane her law license, although she has remained on the job as attorney general.

Ms. Kane stared straight ahead as the word “guilty,” uttered decisively by a juror in a flowered dress, echoed nine times around the courtroom. The lawyers immediately went into a private conference with the judge, leaving Ms. Kane, who campaigned on a promise to uncover political interference in Pennsylvania, alone at the defense table.

And when Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy returned to the courtroom, she turned directly to Ms. Kane with a stern warning, her words slicing through the silence.

“There is to be absolutely no retaliation of any kind against any witness in this case, either by your own devices, from your own mouth or your hand, or directing anybody to do anything,” the judge said. She threatened Ms. Kane, who is currently free on bail, with immediate incarceration if she failed to comply.

“Is that clear, Ms. Kane?” the judge asked.

“Yes it is, your honor,” Ms. Kane said.

After the verdict, Gov. Tom Wolf immediately renewed his call for her to step down. “The Office of Attorney General and its employees, as well as the people of Pennsylvania deserve to move on,” Mr. Wolf said in a statement.

Gerald Shargel, a lawyer for Ms. Kane, said a decision about her job would be made in the coming days.
