At least, that is how it appears at the moment.
After previously stating that she could not do so, her spokesman Chuck Ardo indicated today that a document dump will be coming soon.
Ardo told Brad Bumsted of the Tribune-Review “there is no doubt in my mind she will” release the emails.
According to Ardo, there are about 6,000 messages that reach into such departments as the Pennsylvania State Police, and the governments of Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties.
None of these entities, though, were apparently aware that such emails existed.
Nevertheless, Kane will now seek to comply with the right-to-know requests before the Commonwealth Court.
“I’ve instructed my office to engage in a comprehensive review of all emails sitting on (attorney general) servers to fully comply with the RTK (requests),” Kane stated. “Our preliminary review has generated emails of government officials, including law enforcement officials and judges, heretofore unknown to us. These emails will be fully released either as public documents defined by the Commonwealth Court, or at my discretion.”
Bumsted also revealed that although Kane’s law license was suspended by the State Supreme Court yesterday, that action doesn’t go into effect for 30 days.
