Brady Strategist Smukler Reportedly to be Indicted

Bob BradyKen Smukler, Congressman Bob Brady’s (D-Philadelphia) longtime political strategist, is to be indicted on charges related to payments between Brady’s 2012 campaign to a challenger to get them out of the race, according to the Inquirer.

The Inquirer reports that four sources have confirmed to them that Smukler will be indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday.  

The sources say that Smukler is not slated to plead guilty or help investigators like Jimmie Moore and Carolyn Cavaness did.  

From the Inquirer:

Prosecutors have not signaled whether Brady, one of the city’s most powerful Democrats, might face charges himself. But the case against Smukler moves their investigation from one primarily focused on the failure of Brady’s campaign rival — former Municipal Court Judge Jimmie Moore — to accurately report the source of the $90,000 on his campaign finance filings to a probe of a larger alleged conspiracy to hide that information directed in part by members of Brady’s camp.

Smukler declined requests for comment Tuesday morning. It was not immediately clear what charges he would face.

  5. Not a handsome fellow either, looks like he should be cooking on a spit with an apple in his mouth.

  6. Not a handsome fellow either, Looks like he should be turning on a spit with an apple in his mouth.

  7. I also hear the Feds are looking into his corrupt business dealings at the Sheriff’s office. I told you all a year ago Tom Hagen is going down.

  8. There is still some question if Brady is on tape. (There’s been rumor of it.)

    But, who would believe that $90,000 got paid off without his knowledge and approval?

    1. David I think you should ask Bungy he somehow has a connection to get answers I been saying this since the Kane story broke it was like he was on the inside or involved so let’s keep tracking him I have been going back thru other post and I have my IT guy tracking his IP address to see where he is posting from once all info is gathered I will release it I firmly believe this guy is connected in the political world or has some kind of tie to a case that was reported on here

  9. One wonders whether he will sacrifice himself for Rep. Brady or whether he expose Rep. Brady. It is more than difficult to think that Rep. Brady was unaware of what Ken Smuckler was doing.

    It is, however, disappointing

    1. No one is wondering, Bob. If you had a clue, you would know what is going on here.

      Go complain about moderate Republicans who represent moderate districts. You always help weaken them for Dems.

    2. Reminds me of Ollie North and his boss, he later claimed he did not know what was going on (and maybe he didn’t).

  10. ““We do not find Keystone Politics to be a credible news organization nor this reporter to be a credible journalist” – K. Smukler

    “We do not find the Brady campaign to be a credible political organization nor Ken Smukler to be a credible political operative” – Everyone

  11. I get back from my yearly month long trip to Calabria to this GREAT news. It’s almost good to be back home. NOT REALLY.

  12. Sad when the staffers get burned and the politicians walk. It takes the feds to clean up this cesspool.

  13. what did any of these people do that has not been done in PA since the beginning of the Commonwealth? The Feds are out of control and obviously have no party bias
