Fattah Indicted


Philadelphia Congressman Chaka Fattah was indicted today on 29 counts, including racketeering. He has been a fixture in Philadelphia politics for a long time, and once had a feared political machine that major politicians sought support from. That’s pretty much over now though, as Fattah faces serious prison time if convicted in this case.

I would say the favorites to replace him are State Senator Vince Hughes and State Representative Dwight Evans, for right now. Former Mayoral candidate Doug Oliver and Mayor Michael Nutter’s names will come up as well. City Council President Darrell Clarke is unlikely to want the seat.
