Metcalfe criticized Democrats, who walked out of a hearing of the House State Government Committee after he introduced the resolution.
“They cannot defend the Attorney General, stopping the investigation into their fellow Democratic colleagues related to alleged bribes that were taken during a sting operation down in the Philadelphia area. They cannot defend this Attorney General’s blatant disregard for the law,” he said.
He feels that more must be done to get the House of Representatives behind him before the scheduling of any votes on the matter.
“I don’t know if we have the support or not. I think we need to do some more work as far as educating the members and informing the public so that the public can create that grassroots energy that’s needed to move their legislators in the direction of standing up for the constitution and the law for them,” Metcalfe stated.
And he expressed profound disappointment in Governor Tom Corbett for not speaking out more on this issue.
“The Governor has disappointed me on many fronts, his 28 cents per gallon gas tax increase and his push to try to create a façade for Obamacare Medicaid expansion that he’s trying to call something else…but as far as using the bully pulpit, I think the Governor could be a better leader and step forward and lead on some of these issues and speak out when he has the chance to, and he’s not done that for three years. I really don’t expect him to do that for the next year,” he said.
Ultimately, Metcalfe believes the people of Pennsylvania will decide Kane’s fate.
“One of the most important things that we have to do to hold her accountable is to generate support amongst the electorate to hold her accountable. When the electorate demands that she be held accountable, legislators should fall in line,” Metcalfe said.
