More Trouble for Democrat Congressman Chaka Fattah

Chaka Fattah Indicted

“The House Ethics Committee is opening an investigation into whether Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) violated House rules related to the alleged bribery and money laundering charges for which he was indicted.” – . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

To learn about the depth of the corruption centered on Fattah, read the Philadelphia Inquirer story “Fattah Case Was Built Over Years“.

In a blog post for, John L. Micek writes, “What Fattah really needs to do is to step down now – before he further erodes public trust in an already battered system. If he’s innocent, he can join all the other former public officials who somehow manage to find second lives in the Capitol’s orbit. But talking about a reelection campaign only serves Fattah’s ego — not the people who elected him to serve them.”

In August 2014, Fattah’s long-time aide and political adviser Gregory Naylor pleaded “guilty” to federal corruption charges. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports, “Gregory Naylor, 66, admitted that he conspired with his boss – identified in court filings only as “Elected Official A” – to pay off a series of debts, including an unreported $1 million campaign donation, with grant funds and political contributions funneled through a series of nonprofits and consulting firms.”

September 14, 2015 is the start date of the trial of Fattah’s son, who has also been indicted on federal corruption charges.

Normally, a person is considered innocent of a charge until proven guilty, but do you believe that Democrats would support that idea if Fattah were a Republican?

Although this writer doesn’t believe in trial by media, he still has doubts about Fattah’s claim of innocence.
