Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane will leave office at the end of business today. Her successor, Bruce L. Castor Jr., said at a press conference, some of the mess Kane left behind won't be so easily wiped away, reported The Legal Intelligencer.
Castor said his first objective as attorney general will be regaining the trust of the public, which he acknowledged was damaged by Kane's tumultuous tenure. He said he's the right person for the job, which he'll turn over in January when the newly elected attorney general is sworn in.
Castor is the former district attorney and former county commissioner from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
