Investigative reporter Wayne Madsen is among Kane’s defenders.
His September column PA Supremes suspend anti-pedophile crusading Attorney General’s law license reported parallels between cover-ups of the Sandusky pedophile crimes at Penn State and those involving the “Franklin Scandal” ring based in Nebraska that trafficked teens from the Boys Town orphanage to powerful and wealthy perverts in Omaha, Los Angeles and Washington, DC.
The tangled scandal has led to the downfall of a state environmental secretary and shamed a state police commissioner, a Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice and several former top officials in the attorney general’s office. Another high-court justice resigned after newspapers disclosed his involvement. Kane has threatened to release more, and the state Capitol is ablaze with speculation about whose emails may be next in the drip-drip-drip of disclosures.
