You may not have noticed, but Kathleen Kane’s tenure as Attorney General was plagued by scandal.
So it’s incumbent on the new AG Josh Shapiro to “clean up” the office.
In that vein, he introduced his Chief Integrity Officer Eric Fillman in a new video. The video features Shapiro signing a poster-sized copy of a new Code of Conduct.
“The people of Pennsylvania should never again have to doubt the integrity of this office,” Shapiro states. “This code is a promise I’m making to you and a promise every member of this office is making to one another – to uphold the highest standard of integrity and ensure our justice system works for all.”
“This code reflects a basic principle and in signing it I join over 800 members of this office in recommitting ourselves to this truth: Public service is a public trust,” he concludes.
Shapiro then signs and dates the poster (although I’m not sure if a prop counts the same as a legal document).
