Pa. politics three-parter: Kane’s suspension, Supreme Court race, and the budget impasse

Listen 00:48:43

Guests: Chuck Ardo, Chris Potter, and John Baer

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s law license suspension started last week. The state’s Supreme Court put a temporary suspension on the license because of alleged misconduct on her part. So what can Kane do without the ability to practice law? And what’s next for the embattled AG? Marty talks to Kane’s spokesman, CHUCK ARDO. Then we turn to the Keystone State’s Supreme Court race – seven judges are competing for three open seats, marking the first time that three seats have been open in 311 years. Campaign spending is record high and the ads have become nasty. Marty checks in with Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter, CHRIS POTTER. And finally, Philadelphia Daily News columnist, JOHN BAER, catches us up on the four-month stalemate of the Pennsylvania budget.
