Senate Confirms Beemer as Attorney General
The Senate unanimously confirmed the nomination of state Inspector General
Bruce Beemer on Tuesday to complete the unexpired term of Kathleen Kane as state
Attorney General, which ends on January 17, 2017.
Kane resigned from office on August 17, two days after her conviction on nine
charges including felony perjury, criminal conspiracy, false swearing and
obstruction for leaking secret grand jury information to the media. Her
sentencing is set for October 24. Kane was the first woman and the first
Democrat elected to serve as state Attorney General.
Prior to his service as Inspector General, Beemer served as Chief of Staff
under Attorney General Linda Kelly and was Chief of Criminal Prosecutions and
First Deputy under Kane.
