Top prosecutor’s twin files complaint about sister’s office

The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s embattled attorney general’s administration is facing yet another employee complaint — this time from her twin sister.

The Morning Call of Allentown reports Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s twin has filed a wage and gender discrimination complaint against her sister’s office.

Ellen Granahan works as a chief deputy attorney general and says her $88,000 salary is 17 to 37 percent lower than what male and female agency lawyers with similar titles earn. She filed the complaint Dec. 30 with the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission.

The agency gave Kane’s administration until May 12 to respond. It wasn’t clear if that happened. Neither Granahan nor Kane’s office would comment on it.

The Democratic attorney general faces an August trial on charges she leaked secret grand jury material. She denies those allegations.
