BREAKING: Philly DA Fined $62,000 for Ethics Violation
Williams got 89 gifts alongside 5 sources of income, all of which went unreported on his financial disclosure forms.
“Among the gifts District Attorney Williams failed to disclose…were 20 gifts from individuals who had a financial interest that the District Attorney was able to substantially affect through official action at the time they gave the gifts,” the Ethics Board stated. “These individuals included criminal defense attorneys who were handling cases prosecuted by the District Attorney’s Office, as well as subordinate employees and contractors of the District Attorney’s Office.”
The Philly DA is up for re-election this year.
