Beleaguered PA AG Kathleen Kane (D) fighting indictment charges.

Drip… drip… drip:

The investigation into alleged leaks of confidential information by Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was conducted legally and should be allowed to proceed, the judge who oversaw the case argued in legal papers Wednesday.

“The truth is crying to be heard,” Montgomery County Court Judge William R. Carpenter wrote of the case against Kane.

Carpenter’s filing comes as Kane is asking the state Supreme Court to throw out criminal charges that a statewide grand jury recommended against her late last year. Kane is contending that Carpenter overstepped his authority last summer when he named a special prosecutor to investigate her office for the alleged leak.

Background here: basically, AG Kathleen Kane (Democrat, by the way) has been pretty much constantly showing up in story after story about her office’s questionable role in influence-peddling. At this point AG Kane is pretty much looking for any way to disengage without additional damage to her political career. Not that she has any future in politics at this point, but it’s the thought that counts.

  1. Metaphorically speaking, you can hear the ammunition on board starting to cook off as the damage control crews desperately try to contain the fires.

    This will not end well for her.

  2. When it comes to the defenestration of state Democrats, 32 feet per second per second isn’t just a good idea, it’s the law.
