BREAKING: Fina Sues Kane
This whole saga just keeps going and going…
On the same day all five Philly Councilwomen called for his firing, Frank Fina is suing the people he feels are responsible for his predicament.
According to Steve Esack of the Morning Call, Fina and his fellow prosecutors Marc Costanzo, Richard Sheetz and Randy Feathers, as well as former State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan, are suing the Attorney General.
Kane isn’t the only target of this lawsuit, however, as the Philadelphia Daily News, reporter Chris Brennan and Agent Miletto are also being dragged into this.
At issue are the emails Kane released and the 2014 Daily News story, the same one which contained grand jury information that the AG leaked, which Fina et al. claim portrayed them in a negative light.
“Upon assuming office, defendant Kane has misused the power of her office, and its publicly funded resources, for the purpose of silencing her critics through a pattern of intimidation, attempted blackmail, and vindictive retaliation against those persons who have lawfully exposed defendant Kane’s falsehoods, unlawful activities, and violations of her oath of office,” the lawsuit states.
“Kane’s pattern of falsehoods, distraction and retaliation has been amply displayed through her arrests, the emergency suspension of her license to practice law and her repeated material falsehoods made to the public, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the Supervising Judge of a Grand Jury and the members of a Statewide Investigating Grand Jury,” it continues.
