PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the FBI is investigating embattled Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane. The newspaper reports agents have conducted interviews in recent months about several issues with three different people.

Agents wanted to know more about Kane’s role in negotiating a contract with the union that represents narcotics agents in her office. The FBI is also interested in how Kane paid for a trip to Haiti she took last year with several aides from her staff.

A spokesman for the FBI in Philadelphia declined to comment Wednesday, according to the report in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Chuck Ardo, Kane’s spokesman, said the office was unaware of a federal inquiry.

Kane is embroiled in controversy, standing accused of leaking secret grand jury information in order to embarrass political enemies, and then orchestrating a cover-up. She is due in court for a preliminary hearing next Monday.

Last week, Kane lashed out at her accusers, saying the indictments are payback for her prosecution of the Porngate Scandal.
