Rendell: Kane Should Take Leave from AG’s Office

But she shouldn't have to resign, he says.

Kathleen Kane should step away from the attorney general’s office while she faces criminal charges, former Gov. Ed Rendell said today, but she shouldn’t necessarily resign outright.

Rendell made the comments in two tweets Wednesday morning.

Rendell has mostly kept silent since charges were filed against Kane. His longtime press aide, Chuck Ardo, went to work as Kane’s media handler in April.
