HARRISBURG — The spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane is acknowledging that some agency employees are disappointed their boss wasn't ordered removed from office by the state Senate.

Press secretary Chuck Ardo on Thursday attributed the disappointment largely to all the attention brought by the criminal case against Kane, the suspension of her law license and lawmakers' efforts to remove her from office.

He says those employees want the spotlight on their agency to end.

A resolution to oust Kane failed Wednesday in the Senate.

Some of Kane's top deputies have publicly challenged her.

Some gave testimony that helped produce charges against her that she illegally leaked grand jury information and then lied about her actions. Some also question whether agency cases could be undermined by last year's suspension of Kane's law license. Kane has denied any wrongdoing.
