Thorns to Pa. Attorney General Kathleen Kane

From the editorial pages of The Pottstown Mercury:
THORNS to Pennsylvania’s new attorney general Kathleen Kane for holding a press conference and then refusing to answer questions about a contract to privatize management of the state Lottery. According to a report at by reporter Tony Romeo, Kane refused to take questions after declaring that a contract to privatize management of the Lottery, negotiated by Gov. Tom Corbett violated the state constitution. Reporters were told to submit questions via e-mail to be answered later. Franklin and Marshall College political analyst Terry Madonna says the move was unusual, Romeo reported. Romeo quoted Madonna: “Public officials owe it to the citizens of the state to hold press availabilities to answer questions from the press particularly when they render important decisions with huge implications, fiscal, as well as political.” We wholeheartedly agree.
