Sandusky Role in Pennsylvania Attorney General Race
Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) – Kathleen Kane, the Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania attorney general, and David Freed, her Republican challenger, talk with Bloomberg’s Romy Varghese about their race and the impact of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal on the contest.
Sandusky, a former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach who abused boys over a 15-year period, may inadvertently help Kane become the first woman elected to the state’s top law-enforcement office. An Oct. 17-21 poll showed Kane leading Freed 39 percent to 26 percent among likely voters, according to the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion. (Source: Bloomberg)
