The email scandal involving Kathleen Kane continues to play out in Pennsylvania as the state attorney general fights perjury and obstruction charges by releasing raunchy and racist emails allegedly penned by current or former public officials.

Kane remains in the spotlight after testifying Thursday in Harrisburg in a separate matter involving former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted in 2012 of sexually assaulting 10 boys over a 15-year period, according to the Allentown Morning Call.

Kane testified Thursday that there is no evidence to suggest that state prosecutors or another judge leaked Sandusky grand jury testimony, which is supposed to be secret, to the news media, the Morning Call reported. Sandusky's attorney is working on an appeal and had hoped to get the former coach's convictions overturned.

The court appearance is just the latest legal tangle for Kane, who is facing calls for resignation from Pennsylvania lawmakers, including the governor. She also had her law license suspended by the state Supreme Court, National Public Radio reported.

Kane is accused of leaking other grand jury testimony and then lying to cover it up, and she was charged with a felony and seven misdemeanors in August, according to NPR.

She has vehemently denied all charges and claims the case against her is nothing more than a witch hunt started by a group of state prosecutors and judges "passing pornographic, racially offensive, and religiously offensive emails amongst each other — email traffic sent and received on government computers, and on government time," she said an August news conference.

"The emails range from Penthouse-fare pornography to memes that are swapped on forums like 4chan and random images with racist or sexist commentary," Metro US wrote of the emails, many of which have been released. "Several of the emails originated with Frank Fina, a former prosecutor at the Attorney General's office who is currently employed by the Philadelphia D.A.'s office."

"One email from Fina, titled 'New Office Motivation Posters,' has five pornographic images attached of women in office attire that are too graphic for Metro to post even in edited form," the newspaper continued.

Kane is still awaiting a trial date.
