Dirty Democrat DA: Philly DA Seth Williams charged with taking $160,000 in luxury gifts, Caribbean trips and cash in exchange for favors'

What a bum! 
The corruption of wrongdoing finds its way to the Philadelphia's DA's office!  Did he really think it was okay?  Maybe he was just following Crooked Hillary's lead? 

Daily Mail reports Philadelphia's top prosecutor was charged Tuesday with taking more than $160,000 in luxury gifts, Caribbean trips and cash, often in exchange for official favors that included help with a court case, according to a bribery and extortion indictment.

The indictment caps a nearly two-year investigation into Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams' financial affairs. 

Williams, a Democrat and career prosecutor who earns $175,000 in the top job, has said he ran into financial trouble after a divorce and while paying private school tuition for his daughters.

he indictment described gifts that included stays he took with his then-girlfriend in a presidential suite of a Punta Cana resort; a custom $3,400 sofa; a new roof; and a used Jaguar convertible, with insurance coverage to match.

In exchange, authorities said, he offered to help a friend's friend seek a reduced jail sentence in a criminal case run by his office, and took $7,000 for helping a business owner friend meet with an airport police official in an attempt to avoid enhanced screening when returning to the US from foreign trips.
