HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – In less than a week, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is scheduled to have her law license suspended indefinitely, but she has yet to say what changes that will bring to the agency.
Legal experts and former attorneys general say the state Supreme Court’s unprecedented decision to yank Kane’s license leaves a great deal unresolved about the role she’ll play or which official acts she can perform.
Her temporary suspension begins Thursday and it’s unclear how long it will last.
Kane’s spokesman says he can’t provide any specifics, and her lawyer didn’t return a message.
Kane, a first-term Democrat, faces criminal charges that include perjury and official oppression for allegedly leaking secret grand jury material to a newspaper and lying about it.
