Pennsylvania's self-destructing attorney general, Kathleen Kane, should resign. This week alone, The Inquirer has reported that she disrupted a second political corruption case, while the Supreme Court upheld a probe into her dissemination of grand jury information that could yield criminal charges. It's now clear that since her early days in office, Kane's attempts to protect legitimate law enforcement targets and smear rivals have been at odds with the public interest. The latest revelation is that Kane undermined a 2013 investigation of a former state gambling regulator with ties to Louis DeNaples, a politically connected Scranton millionaire accused of dealings with mob figures, The Inquirer's Craig R. McCoy and Angela Couloumbis reported.

A monument to government secrecy will reach another milestone Saturday, when the investigation of the violent deaths of New Jersey political insider John Sheridan and his wife, Joyce, will have lasted six months.
