PA-Gov: Wolf Staff Express Concern over AG Kane
According to Brad Bumsted of the Tribune-Review, emails released after an open records request show Wolf’s staffers exploring some of the contingencies should Kane have to leave office.
“Who is the first deputy?” former Chief of Staff Katie McGinty asks at one point.
Greg Moulton, of Sandusky investigation fame, informed her it is Bruce Beemer.
Wolf’s Director of Communications Mark Nicastre told Bumsted the staff was just doing its “due diligence” considering the Attorney General’s current situation.
After Erik Anderson, then the AG’s legal counsel for labor and employment issues, resigned in April some of Gov. Wolf’s staff marveled at the exodus.
First Lady Frances Wolf’s press secretary Andrea Mead called the news “beyond crazy.”
Governor Wolf’s deputy press secretary J.J. Abbott, who once worked for Kane, responded that Anderson was “one of the last people I wanted to get out. What an unholy mess.”
