I thought the theme was pretty obvious from my first sentence. I’m not a liberal.
well, he received sideline passes to every game for 5 seasons and tweeted photos of himself with star players regularly
Seemed like he was forced out by a coach who the city hated. He still has a house here and still seems well-liked by the fans I know
Yup and even way more with Williams, but I was trying to limit it to just the past 30 days
Good question. I imagine the team could put a value on it if someone like the DA or Mayor asked
well that’s technical, but I’m used to Judge Dougherty from the Court of Common Pleas...and we identify them as judges: https://www.courts.phila.gov/Directory/div.…
I’ve only been here 6 years, but feel like I’ve seen a few decades worth of corruption
the guy who declined to prosecute bill cosby the first time is taking over
Who would do that? Likely the AG’s office, but she’s on her way to jail.
or how he just hired a guy with IRS liens, eviction liens and various other unpaid bills as his #2: http://www.philadelinquency.com/2016/08/12/did…
Definitely not, but in a one party town, whoever is the party in control is going to run wild as we’ve seen lately over and over again
You’re likely right, but seems odd to piss off the police union when you need them for convictions in every other case. I don’t know how many bar fights that are so large with that many injuries escape prosecution.
There’s so much too I couldn’t even fit in there. That’s just the tip for Philly and PA politics.
Not for avoiding charges, but certainly abusing office if it could ever be proven, which is almost impossible without a wire tap confirming a quid pro quo arrangement.
From the reports I read he got tickets for free too. The Mayor has a luxury box, but they usually sell it to raise money for charities.
Ha, I didn’t know that. Thanks for sharing.
I don’t know, but then again, we don’t the extent of his relationship with the players. We are only now finding out about him taking gifts and money from lawyers and judges.
Yes, I would think it would take a targeted challenge in the right jurisdiction to challenge on states’ rights issue and hope to create a circuit split of sorts. If NFL can be cut in on the money they will throw full weight behind congressional repeal and will win. They lobbied for PASPA in the damn first place.
