AG tells staff he’s reviewing report about offensive emails

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania’s attorney general is telling his staff that an outside review of offensive or objectionable emails is now in his hands, and he’s conferring with senior advisers about what to do with it.

Acting Attorney General Bruce Castor Jr. sent an email to the agency’s roughly 800 employees Thursday that said some of them were notified that their names may be included in the report.

Castor says the report can’t be released without his approval.

The review was performed by a team of private lawyers hired by Castor’s predecessor as attorney general, Kathleen Kane. She resigned last week after being convicted of perjury.

Under Kane, the attorney general’s office disclosed hundreds of emails that cost the jobs of several high-ranking government officials, including two state Supreme Court justices.
