State Senator, and Chairman of the committee investigating Kane, John Gordner says that Kane isn’t expected to be at Tuesday’s hearing.
“She’s preparing a response at this point but she is not expected to appear,” Kane spokesman Chuck Ardo stated. “She does not believe there are grounds for removal and she doesn’t believe the votes are there for removal to proceed.”
A two-thirds majority vote is required. If that threshold is met, Governor Wolf can remove Kane under Article VI Section 7 of the PA Constitution.
The Governor has indicated that if the Senate votes to remove the AG, he’ll follow their lead.
