Feds Detail Philadelphia Corruption Probe (FBI bugs in Mayor's ofc case)
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 07:08 AM by Rose Siding
PHILADELPHIA -- Federal prosecutors have filed court papers detailing testimony they plan to present in an ongoing investigation that involved FBI wiretapping of city officials and their political supporters.

Authorities have declined to explain why they bugged Mayor John Street's office in 2003, and he has denied any wrongdoing.

However, according to court documents filed Monday, Street's former finance director, Janice Davis, will testify that the mayor "instructed her to favor firms recommended" by Ronald A. White, a close ally of Street's and a central figure in the probe.

White and 11 others, including former city Treasurer Corey Kemp, were indicted in 2004 on charges that Kemp steered city business to White and his clients in exchange for cash and gifts. White, who died in November, had pleaded innocent to all charges.

1. John Street has always been upfront about giving business to his friends.
He says, "It has to go somewhere, and who am I going to give it to, my enemies?" LOL. Flawless logic. And this IS Philadelphia.
