Aide Says Brady Campaign Paid Primary Challenger to Drop Out

Bob BradyCarolyn Cavaness, a former political aide to senior Municipal Court Judge Jimmie Moore plead guilty to her role in a scheme to have Moore drop out of a primary challenge to Congressman Bob Brady (D-Philadelphia).  

The Inquirer reports that Brady’s campaign reportedly paid $90,000 in campaign debts for Moore to drop out of the race during Moore’s 2012 bid.  

Neither Brady or Moore have been charged with a crime, nor were they named in the court filings.  The filings made clear that the allegations were in reference to Moore’s run for the 1st Congressional District, which Brady represents.  Brady had denied any wrongdoing.  

The court filings showed that Cavaness was instructed my Moore to create a company that would accept the money from the Brady campaign.  

The filings had been sealed for at least one month because the prosecutors were concerned Brady would attempt to interfere with the investigation.  

“The government submits that this conduct by [Brady] was intended to influence [that person’s] account of the matter under investigation,” the prosecutor wrote in filings according to the Inquirer.  

The conduct was Brady reportedly talking with another witness to sync up their stories after the FBI had spoken with Brady.

    If. Brady was in the Republican Party what would those people be saying makes me wonder I bet everything he did would be legal. Screw the D”s and the R’s become independent and you will live life right

    The FEC has jurisdiction on this matter since Congressman Brady is a federal official. The real worry here is the meeting he had with another person to make sure their stories were the same. Could be construed as witness tampering.

    Hey Observer getting. Trips and roofs isn’t illegal not reporting them is and that’s why he is where he is. As for you bunghole I am your IP address ran now to see where your from because you only write about certain things it took me about an hour to read all your past history I can see you were a big writer on the Kane case which makes me scratch my head and now this you must either live outside the city or up in the northeast or have a major interest in certain cases once I have your IP address I can tell you your address and this isn’t coming from Putin either this is the underground in Philly…. talk with you later today

    Hey Larry the FEDS don’t give a f##k about what the City Commisioners have to say.

  6. Observer 2 says:

    Everything Seth Williams did was legal too, until it wasn’t.

  7. Larry says:

    Heard this morning in City Hall Bob Brady has nothing to worry about what he did was legal per the City Commisioners another victory for the Democratic Party. Let’s see what all you nay Sayers have to say about this. Mr Chairman if you need someone to help you in anyway let me know I will be there in a second your a great guy and in today’s world not many like you out there. Looks like another witch hunt going on here

  8. DelcoSocialist says:

    Why would it be worth $90k for Brady to clear Moore out of the way? Moore’s campaign would barely have made a ripple on primary day. What was Brady really paying for?

  9. bungy says:

    Nothing but the truth so help me Allah, as they say in Brady’s district.

  10. Zakrey Bissell says:

  11. bungy says:

    Larry Just sbout Everything I said about kane came true. Just like I told you that the feds were looking at Tom Hagen Months ago.

      If you are such a good leaker, why aren’t you working in the White House?

  12. Larry says:

    Hey Bungy I remember you from the Kathleen Kane case you talk a good game but bring gnothing to the table when you get good info come back to this thread

  13. Larry says:

    Bob Brady did worse things than offer 90k to walk away how about some of the things he did at City COmmittee or with letting people get big time jobs by making deals with all involved. Seems he will no longer be the Congress man but he will be the jail bait

  14. john says:

    Great gig if you can get it? 90K to talk a walk. Now that’s lucrative exercise.

  15. bungy says:

    He was always PURE WHISKEY TANGO.

  16. CentPADem says:

    I never quite got over the story about him snatching the glass the Pope drank out of when he addressed Congress and then drank some of the leftover water. That was just a bizarre story.

  17. Phil Hughes says:

    It’s time for Brady to go. He adds absolutely nothing to Congress. His time is way past being over. He doesn’t speak to the press, doesn’t make any pronouncements and only keeps the seat warm. The people of his district deserve better than that.

    1. gulag Pittsburgh says:

      Gee, Brady sounds like Trump.

  18. bungy says:

    Tom Hagen is such a schmuck (pun intended). I wonder if Louie D. knows Tom Hagen in TALKING.

  19. EvilBobCaseyIV says:


  20. the answer desk says:

    If I announce that I’m running against Brady, can I get $90,000 too?

  21. bungy says:

    I Told you all a year ago that the Man who calls himself Tom Hagen was going DOWN. It looks like he is gonna take Brady down with him.
