RODERICK RANDOM: If Only Kane Had Rested A Pretty Solid Case ...

BY RODERICK RANDOMDecember 15, 2018

First of all, get this straight.

Former state Attorney General Kathleen Granahan Kane got what she deserved.

Kane, a Democrat, sought revenge on the attorney general’s office former chief prosecutor, Frank Fina. She blamed him for a March 2014 Philadelphia Inquirer story that said she wrongly shut down a corruption investigation into Democratic Philadelphia state legislators.

Kane leaked secret grand jury information about a corruption case Fina shut down years earlier, then she lied about ordering the leak when asked about it in front of another grand jury.

A jury of her peers convicted Kane, who didn’t offer a defense at her trial. She appealed to the state Supreme Court and lost.
