IT STRIKES me as odd. I mean Vince Fumo, the Prince of Philadelphia, a fixture of power and influence, reportedly under investigation for stuff involving a non-profit group, doggedly pursued by the Inky for what seems years, stepping forward to save 100 jobs at that same Inky and this Daily News. Since when, I wonder, does a politician, especially one in a newspaper's crosshairs, seek to help newspapers? Strange, no?
Gee, why would a Democrat want a typical urban American newspaper to stay just as it is? I can't figure it out either. Hold on, hold on, I think I have it.
It might have something to do with the fact that even though said Democrat is under investigation for "stuff" involving a non-profit group, the newspaper in question still opens the piece with "the Prince of Philadelphia, a fixture of power and influence", no? Or maybe he just likes a newspaper that refers to Democrats' illegal activity as "stuff" rather than defining the actual crimes he allegedly committed.
I can't help but notice they didn't define what Tom Delay did as "stuff": "
The grand jury said that during DeLay's push to create more Republican-dominated congressional districts in Texas, his political action committee funneled $190,000 from corporations to state House candidates through an arm of the Republican National Committee."
Wow, a grand jury said he actually committed the crime? That's interesting since most grand juries only find that enough evidence exists to warrant an actual indictment.
Constitution.org: A grand jury does not decide guilt. It investigates the facts in a case and recommends a course of action.
