Email scandal involving state Supreme Court Justice

eakin HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office says a newspaper’s account of explicit or offensive messages sent to or received by state Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin appears to be based on authentic emails. A spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Wednesday that was the conclusion after comparing the emails to descriptions in two Philadelphia Daily News stories over the past two weeks.


Kane’s provided the emails to the state Supreme Court and several state ethics agencies, suggesting the content violates judicial conduct rules. Kane has described some as racially offensive and misogynistic pornography. The newspaper describes the emails as pornographic, or as mocking gays, women, blacks or Mexicans. Ardo says the office didn’t give the emails to the newspaper. A message seeking comment from Eakin wasn’t immediately returned.
