A vote that could have removed Kathleen Kane from her position as Pennsylvania’s attorney general did not meet the required majority.
A two-third majority was needed, according to PennLive.com, and that majority would have invoked “a clause in the state Constitution that was last used — unsuccessfully — in the 19th century.”
The Senate voted 29-19, the AP reported, for the resolution that would have directed Gov. Tom Wolf to remove Kane because she has been practicing for several months without a law license.
Last week, Kane, who is facing criminal charges over the leaking of grand jury material, lost a battle in court to reinstate her law license.
