D.A. releases booking mugshot of PA AG Kathleen Kane
The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office has released the booking mugshot of Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, the first woman and first Democrat elected to the post in state history. The photo was taken Saturday in Norristown, Pa., where Kane turned herself in to county detectives. She was released on $10,000 bail after arraignment and is scheduled to return to Montgomery County on August 24 for a preliminary hearing on the charges. Kane has been charged with five felonies, including perjury and obstruction, for allegedly leaking secret grand jury material to embarrass political rivals and then lying about it under oath.The 49-year-old Kane has refused repeated calls to resign but has lost most of her political allies, including fellow Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf, who urged her to resign after charges were announced Thursday.
