Too far? Local GOP releases ‘March Madness’ bracket of embattled Philly pols
The Philadelphia Republican City Committee is at it again.
The Philly GOP released a parodic “March Madness” bracket this weekend featuring as contestants pictures of Philadelphia politicians accused of various improprieties ranging from alleged ethical violations to felony charges.
All of the politicians in the image had charges leveled against them within recent weeks and mostly during March itself.
“Usually the month of March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb; however in Philadelphia, the lion continues to roar,” said Philly GOP executive director Joseph DeFelice in a statement. “The blatant disregard these individuals have for their voters is ridiculous. We have had our own version of March Madness and thereby we introduce the ‘Underhanded 8.’”
The bracket highlights local politicians, all Democrats, who are under fire for various allegations.
