Seth Williams Will Not Seek Re-Election

WilliamsPhiladelphia District Attorney Seth Williams will not continue his bid for re-election.  He has been rumored to be under FBI investigation and had a record fine levied against him by the Philadelphia Ethics Board.  

“I have let you down,” Williams said during a press conference, according to Billy Penn.  

“I have made regrettable mistakes in my personal life and personal financial life that cast an unnecessary shadow” over the work of the District Attorney’s Office, Williams said Friday according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The race for Philadelphia District Attorney will be the main focus in Philadelphia this year.  The field of candidates for the Democratic primary now includes Judge Teresa Carr Deni, Michael Untermeyer, Joe Khan, and Rich Negrin.

    Real BREAKING fake news just heard from the voice in stall 3 at the 30th street station men’s room:
    Seth will rat out Johnny Doc
    Johnny Doc will rat out Godfather Zappala
    Godfather Zappala will rat out Fumo…again
    Fumo will escape through his cell toilet and steal all of the cash for kids money buried in New Jersey
    The Feds will scratch their (dick)heads and walk off
    Seth will win on a write in

    All you Demoncrats can write your libtard DA man at Club Fed! Enjoy lockup pally! Filthadelphia, the most corrupt city in Pennsylvania outside of Harrisburg. He thought he couldn’t be touched because he is a negro. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

    Just like I told you Friday, Tariq is running. Bungy NEVER wrong. Bonus TEASER, BIG indictments within 5 weeks. BOOK IT.

  5. eagleswing says:

    williams seems too incredibly corrupt or stupid to ever win another election. good riddance.

  6. HaHaHa says:

    Now can we FINALLY have an investigation into how he framed Kathleen Kane? The life of an ethical, innocent woman who devoted her life to public service has been ruined by Seth Williams’s lies!

  7. David Diano says:

    Glad we are finally getting rid of this piece of sh*t DA.

    The consensus opinion at state committee was that Seth must have gotten some seriously bad news about his case in the past day or two. Of course, his case was bad news from the start.

    This is a significant shake-up that turns the race from “who can beat Seth?” (anyone will do) into “who would actually be the best DA?”

  8. bungy says:

    Tariq will be running book it.

  9. Zakrey Bissell says:

    Good choice Seth Williams of not seeking reelection because I did supported for someone else in the race and not yourself.

  10. Chuckie Porter the rat says:

    The better way to avoid trouble is to follow our design in the west. We put in our own U.S.Attorney then send him or HER after our enemies.

  11. Bye Bye says:

    I think we’re way past the target letter. At least one of the grand juries turns 18 months any day now – August 2015 was the first mention. Sources of bigtrial are suggesting a Tuesday indictment. Tuesday is the first day to circulate petitions.

  12. Whistleblower says:

    Ain’t gonna be no deal. My guess received a target letter. Seth will cooperate in the upcoming RICO trials of you know who and his henchman on council. In return nothing but the satisfaction that he puts the nail in the coffin that put one in his!

  13. john says:

    Much more here that hasn’t even been unearthed…that’s why hes getting out now.

  14. Bye Bye says:

    He’s sticking by the “nobody got any favors” line. There’s another shoe that hasn’t dropped.

  15. Answer Desk says:

    For once I agree with Chuckie

  16. Chuckie Porter the rat says:

    Looks like the Feds gave Seth the same deal as Pgh mayor lurid Luke…drop out and we won’t indict.
