HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A citizen activist’s ethics complaint regarding Attorney General Kathleen Kane has been received by a state disciplinary board and assigned to a lawyer there.

The activist, Gene Stilp, received the notice Friday from the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

In a complaint filed last week, Stilp asked the agency to investigate the allegations that prompted criminal charges against Kane. He wants the board to force her to resign as Pennsylvania’s attorney general.

Kane is accused of leaking protected grand jury information to a reporter and then lying about it. She denies wrongdoing.

If disciplinary action is recommended, the high court would decide whether to suspend Kane’s law license. The state constitution requires the attorney general to hold a law license.

The board doesn’t comment on pending complaints.
