BREAKING: Senate Attempt to Remove Kane Fails
The State Senate voted today on whether to remove the Attorney General from her position.
According to Article VI Section 7 of the PA Constitution two-thirds approval of the upper chamber was necessary. The ultimate decision would then rest with Governor Wolf, who has already said he would remove Kane under those circumstances.
The vote was 29 to 19 against Kane, four short of the two-thirds required.
It was nearly along party lines, with Democrat Sen. Rob Teplitz voting against Kane and Republican Sen. Stewart Greenleaf voted for her.
GOP Sen. Chuck McIlhinney missed the roll call.
The Senate retained the right to consider the question again and the State House is still looking into impeachment proceedings at this time.
