State Attorney-General and Lackawnna County resident Kathleen Kane can’t seem to get out of her own way these days. True, she’s caught up in a Gordian knot of political back-stabbing involving her along with members of former Attorney-General (and now former Governor) Tom Corbett’s legal team, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Wlliams, porn emails found on state computers, a dropped Philadelphia sting operation and alleged state grand jury leaks,. Details of Kane’s most recent political blowup can be found here.

It’s remarkable how quickly Kane’s political star has fallen. The woman whose meteoric rise to power once seemed destined for the Governor’s mansion now is losing the confidence of prominent state Democrats.
