Here’s a story you probably won’t see on the pages of CNN or MSNBC. A Democrat district attorney in Philadelphia has been busted for being corrupt.
Do the people of Philadelphia ever get tired of their city being run by Democrats like this?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Philadelphia’s Democratic DA Indicted on Federal Corruption Charges
Philadelphia’s top prosecutor, Democratic District Attorney Seth Williams, was charged Tuesday with taking more than $160,000 in luxury gifts, Caribbean trips, and cash, often in exchange for official favors.
Williams, a career prosecutor, was under investigation for nearly two years, according to an unsealed bribery and extortion indictment.
Williams earns $175,000 a year as district attorney but claims he ran into financial trouble after a divorce and by trying to foot the bill for his daughters’ tuition for private school, CBS News reported Tuesday.
Investigators began looking into Williams’ personal and political finances in August 2015, finding a series of ethics violations, including failure to disclose $160,500 in gifts and income. That amount included home repairs worth $45,000.
Gifts that Williams received in exchange for favors included stays with his then-girlfriend in a presidential suite of a Punta Cana resort, a $3,400 sofa, and a used Jaguar convertible, with insurance coverage.
Perhaps it’s time for the city to make a change.
Democrats clearly think they can get away with anything there.
