Attorney general candidates Freed and Kane trade jabs

Pennsylvania candidates for state attorney general Kathleen Kane and David Freed visited the Inquirer Editorial Board Tuesday to seek the newspaper's endorsement. They discussed a number of issues, including a Republican political group's TV commercial attacking Democrat Kane's handling of a rape case when she was an assistant district attorney in Lackawanna County. Kane said her Republican opponent should have made a tougher statement disavowing any connection to the paid political ad that she called a "lie." The ad is no longer being aired. Freed, Cumberland County's Republican district attorney, said he didn't have anything to do with the commercial and that he had said enough about it. The two were later questioned in an interview recorded for Philly.com.
