According to Angela Couloumbis of the Inquirer, Graham Moore, the former Human Resources Director of the Attorney General’s office is suing Kane for wrongful termination.
Kane brought Duecker on despite Moore’s advice and fired Moore. At the time, her spokesman Chuck Ardo said it was a “personnel issue”. Moore was told only that the AG wanted to go “in a new direction.”
In the lawsuit, Moore makes a number of serious claims concerning Kathleen Kane’s attempts to protect Duecker.
He states that the AG asked another top aide what Duecker’s accusers “would need to make this go away”, asserting that she “needed” Duecker on staff.
Additionally the head of the Internal Affairs unit, which produced a report warning Kane about the allegations, told Moore that Duecker asked if the report could “die on the vine.”
Moore also stated that Kane asked the FOP during contract negotiations to make the issue go away. This accusation is being investigated by the FBI.
