    Castor tells Pa. attorney general staff he won’t be releasing lewd email report soon

    The man currently running the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office is telling employees he won’t be releasing a report into the exchange of lewd and objectionable emails in the near future.

    Acting Attorney General Bruce Castor told the agency’s employees Friday the report is on hold at least until there’s a procedure for people named in the report to make “informed responses.”

    Castor, a Republican, has been running the office since Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane resigned Aug. 17, two days after she was convicted of perjury and other offenses.

    The union that represents the office’s narcotics agents is also asking Commonwealth Court to prevent the report’s release.

    The state Senate is poised to vote Tuesday on Bruce Beemer, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s nominee to succeed Kane in the position.
