Have you noticed that corrupt Democrats seem to get away with their scams? In Philadelphia, the Democrat district attorney is embroiled in a corruption scandal but he’s getting off the hook with pay!

Seth Williams’ corruption trial: The case against the Philly DA explained
What are his alleged crimes? Federal prosecutors have accused Williams of repeatedly misusing campaign cash and government property to live well beyond his means and selling the influence of his office to two wealthy benefactors who showered him with gifts including trips abroad, a $3,000 custom-built sofa and a used Jaguar convertible.
How is Williams still in office? The district attorney agreed to a temporary suspension of his law license days after he was indicted in March but vowed to remain in his post until he could be vindicated at trial. Because he is not currently an active lawyer, he has limited his role to that of an administrator and left all oversight of the thousands of criminal cases that flow through his office each year to his first assistant, Kathleen Martin. That hasn’t stopped Williams from continuing to collect his $175,572-a-year salary — or his critics from trying to boot him from his post anyway.
Why do the people of Philadelphia put up with this?
Is it just because he’s a Democrat?
