Bruce Beemer announced today that he is hiring his own First Deputy AG and Acting Chief of Staff.
Robert A. Mulle will be First Deputy while James A. Donohue III is the new Chief of Staff.
“Bob and Jim are both accomplished attorneys who have decades of experience working on behalf of the Commonwealth and its citizens,” Attorney General Beemer said. “They have proven themselves as men of exceptional character. I look forward to working alongside them in the coming months.”
In the very last line of the AG office’s statement was an intriguing revelation.
“Attorney General Beemer today also announced that Bruce L. Castor Jr. will remain as the OAG’s Solicitor General through Sept. 9,” it stated.
To be that another way, the Solicitor General that Kathleen Kane trusted to run the office in her absence is being let go.
Last week, Beemer fired Kane’s close aides Jonathan Duecker and Patrick Reese.
