Metcalfe Files Impeachment Resolution Against Pa Attorney General

11.27.13 | Bob Price

Pennsylvania Representative Daryl Metcalfe has introduced a House Resolution calling for the impeachment of state Attorney General Kathleen Kane.  Metcalfe says Kane’s repeated violation of her constitutional, statutory and ethical duties cannot be tolerated if our system of government is to work properly.  Attorney General Kane held a press conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia over the summer to announce that she would not defend the constitutionality of Pennsylvania’s Defense of Marriage Act against a federal lawsuit.  Metcalfe says Her decision and declaration was based solely on her own personal opinion that this lawfully enacted Pennsylvania statute is “wholly unconstitutional.”
