HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Four top deputies to Attorney General Kathleen Kane warned her that she needed to make more changes while her law license is suspended to avoid serious problems for the agency.

A five-page memo from last month was released Monday by a special Senate committee exploring whether to recommend Kane’s removal under an obscure constitutional provision.

In the memo, the deputies said First Deputy Bruce Beemer, and not Kane, should make certain decisions, including whether to initiate a civil or criminal action.

Kane’s office hasn’t explained how she’s complying with the suspension order.

But her spokesman insists she’s complied with her deputies’ wishes and says there’s been no report otherwise by an office lawyer.

The state Supreme Court ordered Kane’s law license suspended last month. She’s facing criminal charges including perjury.
