Democrats and the law mix about as well as oil and water. The two simply don’t go together, and one doesn’t have to look far to find ample examples of Democrats in key leadership positions violating the very laws they are sworn to uphold. A few examples of this include Anthony Weiner, the disgraced Congressman, was forced out of office and sent to federal prison for 21 months for the offense of sexting with a minor. Former California State Senator Leland Yee, a so-called gun control advocate, was sent to prison for weapons trafficking, and most recently, A. Franken has been accused of sexual assault by Leeann Tweeden, who claims Franken forcibly kissed her in 2006.
So it should come as no surprise that Willie Singletary, a former Philadelphia traffic court judge, who was removed from the bench for showing pictures of his penis to a city cashier, is now making a bid for Congress with the apparent blessing of the Democratic National Committee. So who is Willie Singletary? Well, in 2013 Mr. Singletary was involved in a ticket-fixing scheme. The ticket-fixing scheme cost the city of Philadelphia hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid fines and unfairly targeted the poor citizens of Philadelphia. Judge Singletary was acquitted of fixing tickets but was convicted on the charge of lying to the FBI. As a result, Mr. Singletary was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison and had to go through one year of supervised release. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, “Willie Singletary, 33, of Philadelphia, was sentenced today to 20 months in prison for lying to the FBI when questioned about ticket fixing at the former Philadelphia Traffic Court. A federal jury found Singletary guilty of the charge in July 2014 following a trial.”
Regarding the matter of Mr. Singletary’s sexual deviancy, he somehow thought it was appropriate to show pictures of his penis to a co-worker. The action eventually led to his removal from the bench. A disciplinary court who removed Singletary from his position as a judge said in 2012 that, “We think that the public, even those members of the public who register the lowest scores on the sensitivity index, do not expect their judges to be conducting photo sessions featuring the judicial penis and then to be sending the photos over the electronic airwaves to another person.” Mr. Singletary tried to explain that he didn’t know the pictures were on his phone. Eventually, he was forced to resign in disgrace from the court.
When announcing his bid for Congress, Mr. Singletary said, “Even though I made some mistakes, I’m not a mistake. And just like many in our community, we all could use a fresh start. Yes, I’ve made some mistakes, some of which I am not proud of, and for those who are affected by my mistakes, I truly, truly apologize to you today.” The issue at hand here is that Mr. Singletary didn’t just make one mistake. He has a track record of making poor decisions. Decisions, which led to him, being sentenced to federal prison, and losing his job because he showed pictures of his penis to a co-worker.
Unbelievably, Mr. Singletary’s lawyer, William J. Brennan, attempted to compare his client to former Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, by saying, “He was found not guilty of every single corruption charge. Marion Barry was the mayor of D.C. He was on film smoking a crack pipe, and he was elected mayor. So I think voters are forgiving people.” It is a sure bet that if Mr. Singletary was a Republican, the left would be in complete meltdown mode over his candidacy. However, if you are a liberal Democrat, lying to federal investigators and being a sexual deviant is ok.
Adding to his comments about his run for Congress, Mr. Singletary said, “My gift took me to a place where my character couldn’t keep me. I made some decisions that were not so good. I also made some mistakes. I’ve apologized for that. I don’t want to be stuck in my past, and neither should my past hinder me from my future.” What Mr. Singletary seem to forget is that his mistakes as he calls them not only violated his victims but the people of Philadelphia as well. He has shown on multiple occasions that he cannot be entrusted with a position of leadership, yet he and his lawyer feel it is all water under the bridge.
