Philadelphi D.A.Pleads Guilty to Bribery and Resigns

Nearly 2 weeks into his trial on bribery charges, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams, 50, pleaded guilty and resigned from his government position. He had been indicted by a federal grand jury in March. [See Financialish, 3/24]
Once considered a rising Democratic star, Mr. Williams was first elected D.A. in 2009 and he easily won reelection in 2013. The twice-elected official, who was earning $170,000/year, essentially threw his life away for just $54,000 in cash, vacations, a car and other gifts over a 5-year period.
It remains to be seen whether Mr. Williams' arrest becomes "an excuse for keeping future qualified minority candidates from being elected to public office."
