Wonder If There's Anything Here

Meehan had a "see evil" approach to anything having to do with Philadelphia and a "see no evil" approach to anything in the more Republican burbs. This, of course, is a general problem as poor local media rarely uncovers shenanigans in suburban government. That doesn't excuse corruption in city government, of course.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Meehan this morning told his staff that he is stepping down as the top federal prosecutor for the eastern part of Pennsylvania.

Meehan, a former aide to U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) and former Delaware County District Attorney, will hold a news conference this afternoon to formally announce his plans.
