Today our Chairman, Joe DeFelice, released the following statement on the resignation of Congressman Chaka Fattah:
This afternoon Congressman Chaka Fattah become the second member of his immediate family to be convicted of corruption charges, after a jury found him guilty of misusing federal funds and campaign contributions to pad his own wallet.
Whether incumbent Chaka Fattah or challenger Dwight Evans emerges with the most votes in the 2nd Congressional Democratic primary on Tuesday, the winner will be clear: influence peddling, corruption, and politics-as-usual.
