Special Prosecutor Doug Gansler told Craig R. McCoy of the Inquirer that “porn-gate” will probably not result in any criminal charges.
Gansler stated that any actions uncovered by his team could more accurately be described as a “policy violation, possibly an ethics violation.”
Furthermore, Kane’s spokesman Chuck Ardo stated that Gansler doesn’t have the authority to prosecute anyway since he doesn’t have a Pennsylvania law license.
The AG’s office has also abandoned their plan to sign Gansler to a separate contract pertaining to his work as Special Prosecutor. Instead they will follow the guidelines of the office’s contract with the former Maryland AG’s law office.
Gansler is being paid $76 an hour and estimates that the costs could ultimately end up being around $2 million when all is said and done.
