    I truly believe that corruption is more rampant than reported and every now and then the powers that be, throw one of their own to the wolves. Seriously. Either these people see other people getting away with criminal acts or they're totally oblivious. I'm going to go with the former.

    Now, the FBI will investigate the Unions.
    Seth Williams is a smoking gun.

    Why would anyone be shocked by this? Rufus Seth has always wanted-courted the "people with $$$$"!! He was like this at CHS(Central), all his crew-friends he made came from $$$$. I never understood why Rufus never married $$$$(God knows he was "F***ing it). Rufus always chased $$$$,and as DA he finally had "some power". Stupid Wealthy White people fell for that"Look at me.I'm half black-half white and str8-I love all women" He spend "OPM"(others peoples money) like it was his own, now he is finally getting what he deserves!!!

    You would think that after the incident with the guy walking around with a bat, during the 2008 election, that organizers would tell volunteers and workers what they can and can't do. The guy with the bat was a member of the New Black Panthers, so he probably didn't care. But it was still a great example of how not to act at the polls.

    Holy Shit! Wasn't expecting that. One count of bribery though, so he likely won't get too long of a sentence.

    Also Williams was taken into custody pending sentencing in October. Dude was in tears and he hasn't even met Bubba yet.

    I hope they have him on a suicide watch because he is totally screwed and he may not be able to handle his fate. He'll probably get 3 or 4 years in the slammer, lose his pension, lose his law license and get fined about $250,000 to boot.

    A package of 10 years of investigation of widespread Philly corruption including a lot on Seth and his closet friends & political cronies arrived at the Prosecutors office on Wednesday about noon according to post office. Included was a letter from Kathleen Martin, denying everything--like they always do. There was an affidavit that disapeared during the Market Street kangaroo court and mention of many in City Council and others who have done wrong. I hope this is the start of the unraveling. I am sure the local press and Philly gov does not want all this revealed, but too bad. The people deserve better. Packages have arrived other places too and shall continue. Philly seems to have an allergy to truth and busting up corruption but ...things change. Seth has a lot to tell and so do others.
