    Philadelphia Sheriff Jewell Williams accused of sexual harassment

    An employee of the Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office contends in a lawsuit that Sheriff Jewell Williams repeatedly sexually harassed her, openly discussing his genitalia and hers, and smeared her name around the office as a “home wrecker” and “whore” after she rebuffed his advances and began dating another employee.

    For the second time, I think, to make matters worse.

    He's the same guy who wanted a loaded Charger as his "work" car and threw a hissy fit because he didn't get it.

    At this point of my 20 years of Philadelphia living, I'm not even phased by news like this.

    When I was in college, I worked for a US Senator in his Harrisburg office: I was completely blown away by not only the incompetence, but by the overt corruption. It single-handedly crushed my naive view on politics.

    For the record, the Senator himself seemed like a really nice guy who genuinely cared, but the institution around him made House of Cards look like a utopian dream.

    Williams, who was first elected in 2011, also on the promise of reform, got off to a bad start when his campaign sent letters to subordinates asking them to contribute to his political campaign fund. The Inquirer reported that employees who contributed to Williams’ campaign fund also were the top recipients of lucrative overtime assignments.
    The sheriff handed out more than $1 million in contracts without competitive bidding.
    Last year, the city Ethics Board censured Williams for accepting $1,000 from the late Councilman James Tayoun’s newspaper, the Public Record, which publishes Sheriff’s Office advertising.
