More Pa. state lawmakers to face charges, prosecutor says

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The Philadelphia district attorney, who’s prosecuting an undercover state sting investigation involving cash and gifts, is about to announce charges against more Pennsylvania state lawmakers.

Seth Williams said he will announce public corruption charges Tuesday against two state lawmakers and a former state lawmaker.

Williams’ office charged two other state representatives, Ronald Waters and Vanessa Brown, in December.

Williams revived the case in June after The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Attorney General Kathleen Kane had shut it down, deeming it to be too flawed to win convictions in court.

An ex-Philadelphia traffic court judge also pleaded guilty in December.
