The Philadelphia chapter of the National Organization of Women is calling on District Attorney Seth Williams to take action.
“The Philadelphia Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) strongly denounces the demeaning, misogynistic and racist emails sent by Frank Fina and E. Marc Costanzo on state owned computers while they worked for the Attorney General’s office,” they write in a press release.
“This gross misconduct points to the culture of misogyny & racism that permeates the highest levels of government,” they continued. “There must be consequences for such behavior in order to change this culture and to repair & restore public confidence in our law enforcement entities.”
“We urge the District Attorney Seth Williams to respond to this matter with the utmost urgency.”
Without explicitly saying so, the group is effectively calling for Williams to fire Fina and Costanzo.
The two men sent pornographic emails during their tenure in the AG office and left to work for Williams after Kathleen Kane was elected.
Kane has categorized her legal troubles as a concerted effort by Fina, Costanzo and even Williams to bring her down.
The Philly DA is currently reviewing possible actions in relation to his two prosecutors.
