7th Pa. Newspaper Calls on Embattled PA AG Kathleen Kane to Resign

Kathleen Kane's hometown newspaper is the latest - and by my count the seventh Pennsylvania newspaper - demanding Pennsylvania's embattled attorney general resign.

From the editorial page of the Wilkes-Barre Citizens Voice:
Kane ineptly has maneuvered herself into a dismal place where her only remaining defense is incompetence. And that place has a single viable exit — resignation.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, the Harrisburg Patriot News, the Express-Times of Easton and the Scranton Times-Tribune have all called on Kane to resign, citing a grand jury recommendation she be charged with perjury and a variety of scandals that have beset her tenure since the Democrat took office in January 2013.

That list includes the state's leading conservative newspaper (the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) and the state's biggest and most liberal newspaper, The Philadelphia Inquirer. The influential Harrisburg Patriot News and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, two very liberal newspapers that endorsed Kane in 2012, also want her to step down immediately.
