Kane's top deputy defends her sister's promotion

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — State Attorney General Kathleen Kane's top deputy says he's confident the promotion of her twin sister can withstand scrutiny by the Pennsylvania Ethics Commission.

First Deputy Attorney General Adrian King said Tuesday the promotion of Ellen Granahan as chief of the child predator unit was done the right way for the right reasons.

Rep. Daryl Metcalfe called on the ethics panel to investigate at a recent hearing before the State Government Committee, which he chairs.

The ethics panel does not confirm or deny the existence of investigations.

King says he — not Kane — promoted Granahan and she'll report to him in her new job. She was a state prosecutor for five years before Kane became attorney general and had 10 years' experience fighting child predators as a local prosecutor.
