Amidst the looming threat of possible criminal charges, Attorney General Kathleen Kane has parted ways with Lanny Davis, according to Steve Esack of the Morning Call.
Davis is a lawyer and a former White House aide from Washington, D.C. He served as the Attorney General’s spokesman throughout the Montgomery County grand jury probe into the possible leak by Kane of secret investigative materials to smear her critics.
This split is not new for Kane, as this is the 10th communication specialist who has parted ways with the Attorney General since she took office in 2013.
A reason has not been stated for Davis’ departure, a member of his firm simply stated that he no longer represents Kane. Davis has worked with Kane since November.
Throughout his time working for Kane, Davis was seen as her fierce defender, calling out her critics as “angry men” attempting to ruin her career.
Davis touts a long line of famous clients, including President Bill Clinton, Martha Stewart, an Ivory Coast president, and Penn State University trustees after the Sandusky arrest.
