Fattah Received $29,000 in Campaign Contributions from Lobbyists After Indictment

chaka-fattah29 and $29,000.

The first number represents the indictments leveled at former Congressman Chaka Fattah in July 2015. The second number is the amount of campaign contributions Fattah received from the announcement of his indictments to his primary loss last April.

That’s according to Sean McMinn of Roll Call, who found the Congressman received 15 donations from lobbyists after his indictment.

McMinn noted that three groups actually gave Fattah $5,000 during that time period: the Communications Workers of America, the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers, and the American Federation of Teachers.

Rep. Fattah was found guilty and forced to resign from office last June.

  2. It’s hard to get the spigot turned off once it’s been flowing for years. This is the problem in both Washington and Harrisburg – the lobbyists just keep writing checks automatically.

  3. At least Seth Williams now knows who to call. That moron went out of his way to protect Johnny Doc and now he won’t get even a dollar from Doc now.

    Wonder when someone is going to tell the truth about the tire-slashing and the cover-up that followed.
