Today was the biggest test of that threat as it was revealed yesterday that Kane’s twin sister distributed a number of questionable messages.
Kane won’t be punishing her sister in any way.
According to Kane’s spokesman Chuck Ardo, Ellen Granahan won’t face any repercussions because she didn’t send enough emails and they weren’t as bad.
“As a whole, they don’t meet the same standard of offense,” Ardo said.
Unfortunately for the AG, her previous allies don’t see it the same way. Granahan’s conduct was denounced by Philly NOW and State Sen. Anthony Williams. The former called them “hateful” while the latter said they were “repugnant”.
Last year, Kane fired four people and punished sixty others for participating in the email chains.
