PA House GOP Calls For Investigation Into Boyle Warrant

House GOP Calls for Krasner Investigation

Combining its dislike in the manner that Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner conducts business and the now-void arrest warrant for state Rep. Kevin Boyle (D-Philadelphia), state House Republicans have questions and want answers.

House GOP members are calling on Pennsylvania Attorney General Michelle Henry to investigate Krasner on his handling of the warrant and any possible election law violations.

“The involvement by District Attorney Krasner and his office in the issuance and withdrawal of the arrest warrant issued for Rep. Boyle on the literal eve of a primary election in which he was a candidate for office raises serious questions,” said Pennsylvania House Republican Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster). “Given the known partisan and unprofessional manner in which DA Krasner has run his office, a state investigation into how this highly publicized matter was handled is well in order.”

Rep. Martina White (R-Philadelphia) noted the alleged conduct is part of a long history of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office not having respect for the law.

“This case is symptomatic of an office that has repeatedly exploited its power, not merely bending the rules but breaking them,” said White. “When a district attorney’s office can mislead a grand jury and deny a police officer his civil rights, as noted by Justice Kevin Dougherty, we must confront the reality that this is not about isolated incidents. It is about systemic failure.”

Krasner told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday that this was just Republicans’ latest effort to persecute the city.

“We are back to the same story all day long — ‘let’s try to find a way to pick on Philly, let’s try to pick on an elected official in Philly, let’s try to demoralize and discourage Philadelphia votes,’” he said.

The letter to the attorney general was transmitted Tuesday morning.
