Sources are telling Keegan Gibson of PoliticsPA.com that a Republican group is about to start airing attack ads against Kathleen Kane, the Democratic nominee for state Attorney General in the Nov. 6 general election.  Records filed today with the Federal Communications Commission confirmed that report.

The Republican State Leadership Committee is spending $393,400 to air commercials about Kane, a former Lackawanna County assistant district attorney, on 6ABC, NBC10 and Fox29 in the Philadelphia television market for about a week, starting Friday.

The RSLC is based in Washington, D.C. and claims to have 100,000 donors in 50 states since 2002.  The group's mission is "building a farm team" in so-called down-ballot state races such as lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state and state legislatures.

The media buy for 6ABC was signed by RSLC president J. Christopher Jankowski.  The Richmond Times-Dispatch in Virginia described Jankowski in May 2010 as a local lobbyist who did work for "automakers, tobacco giants, car-title lenders and energy companies."

The RSLC also has a web site set up to slam Kane, WrongForPA.com, but it is currently down for maintenance.  The web site was set up by a former web consultant to the presidential campaigns of former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Alabama Gov. Mike Huckabee.
