HD-197: Acosta Resigns

leslie-acostaState Representative Leslie Acosta is set to resign her office.

Last September, it was revealed that the lawmaker had pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of money laundering.

Now, Angela Couloumbis and Chris Brennan of the Inquirer are reporting that Acosta intends to resign on January 3rd.

Why January 3rd? Well, that marks the beginning of the new legislative session.

Meanwhile the battle to replace her is already underway in the Philadelphia Democratic Party and its leader Congressman Bob Brady is promising to stay out of the contest.

The 197th district consists of part of North Philadelphia.

  1. But remember, Trump won PA because of racism, not this kind of stuff from Kathleen Kane, Chaka Fattah, and this twit.

  2. that’s great for she did resigned her seat and I’m hoping for her successor does not do the same by corruption I mean’t.

  3. No way! Philadelphia Dems have another elected moron to brush under the rug. Lucky them, and so close to Christmas. You frigging Phila Dem voters should be ashamed of yourselves. Have some self respect. Demand more from your elected and non elected officials.
