 In a statement released on Wednesday after the Senate vote, state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, seen here during her Jan. 2013 swearing-in ceremony, cited the work of Douglas Gansler, the special prosecutor she has appointed to delve into any exchange of racist or raunchy emails. “Today is a good day for all those who share my desire to restore confidence in our judges and prosecutors and integrity to our system of justice. Special Prosecutor Gansler will press on, leaving no hate-filled email unread and no ex parte communication uncovered, in our effort to deliver to all Pennsylvanians, the system of justice we deserve rather than the one we now have. I am happy to continue this effort, finish the mission I pledged to carry out and the job for which I was elected to serve."
