If this is true, this isn't just unethical politics, it's actual corruption involving the Council leadership and District Attorney. We need checks and balances in local politics, because it is absolutely wrong for the Council President to be this close to a drug dealer and possibly covering up for one.
This is not Detroit, DC, or Baltimore.
We deserve better.
I hope two things can come from this scandal coming to light:
- The FBI and US Attorney immediately investigate Clarke and Williams to see if there was illicit intervention into a criminal prosecution, and
- That the good, law abiding voters of Philadelphia say ENOUGH and vote for Danny Alvarez for DA and Terry Tracy for Controller to bring in some watchdogs from OUTSIDE the political machine where SO MANY scandals have arose in recent history!
