Roughly 30 minutes after Attorney General Kathleen Kane was convicted on two counts of perjury and seven misdemeanor counts of abusing the powers of her office, Gov. Wolf called for her immediate resignation.

It may not have been a tough call for Wolf, who had already called for her step down one year ago -- after his fellow Democrat had been charged criminally, but before the state Supreme Court revoked Kane's law license, rendering her unable to take part in any of the legal aspects of her job as the state's top law-enforcement officer.

Here's the governor's full statement:

"Today is a sad day for the commonwealth and the people of Pennsylvania. Attorney General Kane has been convicted of serious charges. These are unbecoming of the commonwealth's top law enforcement officer.
"As I have made clear, I do not believe Kathleen Kane should be Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I believed this when she was charged, and today, after conviction, there should be no question that she should resign immediately.
"While there is no simple procedure to remove a civil officer, the Office of Attorney General and its employees, as well as the people of Pennsylvania, deserve to move on. I implore Attorney General Kane to do what is right: put the commonwealth's residents first and step down from office."
