U.S. Attorney Violated Hatch Act With Specter, Meehan Fundraisers

Posted: February 20, 2011 in Criminal Activity, Politricks

It wasn’t exactly “pay to play.”  It sounded more like pay to STAY….EMPLOYED!

Former interim US Attorney, Laurie Magid, had her underlings write personal checks for politicians so she could engage in shameless self promotion disguised as fundraising and hopefully get herself a judgeship.  If she were my boss I might have been willing to “pay-to-make-her-go away,” but her actions were, at the very least, unethical.  However, her predecessor, and recipient of her largesse, Patrick Meehan, is vouching for her honesty and says she’s misunderstood.  It (allegedly) was Magid’s caterer husband who actually threw the bashes and Laurie was just a guest.  Yeah…right.

Nice to see that corruption in Philly is practiced at the federal level as well.  Below is our Go-With-The-Flowchart simplifying Magid’s scheme.
