Corruption Plagues the Fattah Organization
Philadelphia, PA- For years there has been a cloud of corruption surrounding Congressman Chaka Fattah. In recent weeks, details of two separate cases have emerged which highlight the extent of this corruption. On Tuesday August 12, 2014, Congressman Fattah’s son, Chaka Fattah, Jr, was indicted on bank and wire fraud charges. The charges include stealing federal funds that were intended for schools and obtaining business loans fraudulently. Fattah, Jr, used the money for personal expenses which include gambling debts. Then, on Wednesday August 27, 2014 Congressman Fattah’s former Chief of Staff Gregory Naylor pled guilty to covering up the misuse of over $600,000 in campaign contributions
and federal grants. In addition, Naylor directed over $22,000 in campaign donations to his own consulting firm.
“Corruption under any circumstances is troubling. However, it is especially troubling that while our schools are struggling, Congressman Fattah’s son and Chief of staff have been charged for using much needed funds for personal gain. They have been accused of stealing from our schools and from our children. The interests of the citizens of the Second Congressional District have been ignored in favor of personal financial gain, and our resources taken. Congressman Fattah has failed us all.” –Armond James
Now is the time to get rid of corruption and restore integrity to our district. We need a fresh start with fresh leadership. We do have a choice. Armond James is an educator for education reform. He believes that our children and schools take priority over personal gain. As an educator he has experienced firsthand the challenges our school face and is dedicated to helping students reach their full potential. Armond will bring that same dedication to Congress as he works to improve our schools, create jobs, and serve as an advocate for the middle class.
