While Kane questions the authority of such a committee, they are nonetheless proceeding with their first hearing today.
“The question before our committee is whether or not an attorney general can fulfill the duties of that office with a suspended law license. I am keen to find out what the district attorneys have to say on this question,” said Sen. Art Haywood.
Kane’s law license was suspended by the State Supreme Court in September.
Meanwhile, the committee has subpoenaed Kane for documents but she is refusing.
“Because she believes the Senate acted unlawfully, she does not believe they have the authority to issue a subpoena,” her spokesman Chuck Ardo stated.
