I know they only crawl out of the ground every 17 years, but when they do, they change everything, those ugly, red-eyed, randy bugs.
U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah, a longtime staple of Democratic politics in Philadelphia, was convicted this week of bribery and laundering federal and nonprofit grants to pay off an illegal $1 million campaign loan used to finance his losing mayoral bid in 2007. Even by the standards of Philly politics, Fattah’s crimes are particularly brazen.
Short of going 24/7 on multiple platforms a la “Big Brother,” a new spinoff on Freeform takes “The Bachelor” one stop further.
