Pa. AG Kane files for divorce from husband of 14 years

    Pennsylvania’s Attorney General is seeking a divorce from her husband of 14 years.

    In a complaint filed Friday in Lackawanna County Family Court, Kathleen Kane says her marriage to Christopher J. Kane is irretrievably broken. They have two children.

    Kane spokeswoman Renee Martin tells The Times-Tribune of Scranton that it’s a private family matter. Martin didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press on Saturday.

    This has already been a tough year for the 48-year-old Kane.

    She led an investigation of a government email porn scandal and took heat for quashing a probe of lawmakers who allegedly took inappropriate gifts.

    A grand jury is also looking into whether Kane’s office violated secrecy laws by improperly disclosing information to the Philadelphia Daily News.
