PA Democratic Attorney General Convicted

Ironically she was elected as an outsider who was going to shake up the status quo.

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania's attorney general announced Tuesday that she was resigning amid pressure from the governor and lawmakers a day after she was convicted of abusing the powers of the state's top law enforcement office to smear a rival and lying under oath to cover it up.

Kathleen Kane's office issued a short statement saying she would resign at the end of the workday Wednesday.

"I have been honored to serve the people of Pennsylvania and I wish them health and safety in all their days," Kane said.

On Monday night, a Montgomery County jury convicted Kane of all nine counts against her, including perjury, obstruction and official oppression. Jail time is possible. After hearing days of testimony about petty feuds, political intrigue and "cloak-and-dagger" machinations, Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy ordered Kane to surrender her passport and threatened to jail her if she retaliated against the once-trusted aides who testified against her.
This development is an opportunity for Trump in the state if he's smart about it.
