    Williams has no business being DA.

    That office has never been more terribly run, ever.

    Why has Rufus Seth not been indicted by the Feds? This man is a "Disgrace" to both races(black and white).
    It's not like he has "any MONEY" so why do people still want to help him out(it's not like he has any REAL power)
    Rufus has let Richard Basciano get away with MURDER(well,Basciano has 200 million reasons that he got away with that),he convicted the "poor black men"associated with the building collapse, got sued by and settled out of court with the "white Woman" who got fired by the DA office,hired a '"drug-dealing Ass't DA because he was with the same "black Fraternity" he was a member and of course,Rufus hired a 75 thousand dollar a year "party planner" for the DA's office to help morale(the party was in his extra large pants).
    I'm sorry, I forgot to mention his wife(or ex-wife) and the reduced rent in Drexel Hill.Is he divorced or is he like Mayor Barstool and his wife"Irish Whiskey"?

    It's a defining feature of a particular Muslim sect. I see it all the time around some the mosques in West Philly.

    It's only permitted after one has done a Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

    No kidding? My wife knows more about this than I do, so I shouldn't really comment one way or the other. Thanks for the info.

    All of that said: dumpster fire. Simply disgusting.

    Just saw that. I wonder if he's attempting to beat the Feds to the punch by lawyering up hard and going public.

    Someone tipped him off and he decided to get in front of it?

    It is richly ironic that Williams was busy accepting and failing to report $160,000 in gifts while simultaneously prosecuting Bishop, Brownlee, Waters et al. for accepting and failing to report gifts in amounts that were chump change by comparison.

    There are multiple reasons why muslims dye their beards.

    Vanity. Dyeing the beard when grey starts to show.

    Because the Prophet Mohammed allegedly did it.

    To stand out from Christians and Jews.

    There is no definitive proof that you must make the hajj to dye your beard.

    Gotcha. I guess it's a coincidence for me that I read it yesterday.

    Williams' office and campaign spokesmen both declined comment Wednesday on the report.

    Williams was elected Philadelphia's first black district attorney in 2009, and is up for re-election next year.

    The Second Chance Foundation aids groups serving at-risk children and families.

    Will Bunch weighs in to remind us that, besides Williams' ethical lapses, as a D.A. he's failed to be the reformer many had expected him to be.

    Philly needs a new D.A. — and a new kind of D.A.

    Yes! A Democratic challenger to Seth Williams. I'm changing my registration for the primary so I can vote for Khan.
