Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane has found herself on the other side of the law.
After state authorities began investigating her over an allegedly shady deal with a union and trip to Haiti, the FBI is making its own inquiry, The Philadelphia Inquiry reports.
Kane is under investigation following allegations that she offered a better contract to union officials in her office if they supported her embattled chief of staff. Investigators also are looking into how she paid for a trip to Haiti last year.
She also is accused of leaking information to embarrass a critic and then lied under oath about it.
It wasn’t immediately clear how involved the FBI was, and a spokesman for the FBI office in Philadelphia declined to comment.
