Kane Promoted Agent Suspended for Emails
In her news conference earlier this month, the Attorney General asserted that her troubles began because of a group of hostile individuals were fearful that she uncovered a string of pornographic emails on their work accounts.
Apparently, the AG has forgiven some, though obviously not all.
According to Steve Esack of the Morning Call, Kane promoted a member of her protection detail, Louis DeTitto. Despite being suspended last fall for involvement in the email chain, DeTitto recently took charge of the illegal firearms task force and received a raise.
A source told Esack that DeTitto was suspended not because of the emails themselves but because he headed the firearms training and SWAT team.
This situation is similar to the firing of appeals office head James Barker last April. Kane’s office stated that Barker was let go because they believed leaks were coming from his office and “supervisory accountability falls to the head of the unit.”
Barker thought it was because he testified against Kane during her grand jury proceedings.
The Attorney General’s next court hearing is today.
