Now, however, she is indicating that she doesn’t believe she can seek a second term.
“I believe you have to be a lawyer in good standing to be able to run,” she told the AP.
Additionally, Kane’s spokesman Chuck Ardo asserts that while she still wants to run, it would be difficult to reinstate her license by early next year.
Of course this begs the question, if she thinks she can’t run for re-election then why does she think it’s still OK to serve?
“Her statement just makes no sense in light of the fact that she is in staying in office,” former prosecutor L. George Parry told Couloumbis. “If she is not qualified to run for attorney general, then I don’t see how she’s qualified to be attorney general. It is that simple.”
Kane’s suspension goes into effect on October 21st.
