(Harrisburg) -- State Attorney General Kathleen Kane says she's not backing down and fully intends to serve the rest of her term amid a report that a grand jury investigating press leaks recommended charges against her. 

The Democrat told reporters outside a Farm Show event in Harrisburg today she's disappointed by the process used to investigate her office and says an independent review would find she's done nothing wrong.  

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported last week that a grand jury recommended charges against Kane for leaking secret material to the Philadelphia Daily News about a separate 2009 investigation.

No charges have been filed. 

Kane suggests leaks from the special prosecutor's investigation that disparaged her reputation prove it isn't independent. Kane's lawyer has argued the special prosecutor's appointment was made illegally.
