A Quick Look at Bob Brady's 2011 FEC Reports

Normally I stay out of Philadelphia politics. When I was going over the quarterly FEC reports for the collar counties I dipped into the reports for Philadelphia’s congressional representatives. A few things surprised me so I’ve done a little more digging. Here are some observations on the reports from 1st district Congressman Bob Brady’s campaign, from the post-general 2010 election, year end 2010, first, second, and third quarter 2011 reports. To provide some context, I found a Dec. 20, 2010 article by Brad Bumstead and Mike Wereschagin in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ...

Statewide Primaries Get Steamy

The big question is will we get a Democrat candidate from Eastern Pennsylvania or Western Pennsylvania in the high-stakes Attorney General race? The next two questions automatically follow. Will either Dan McCaffery or former Congressman Pat Murphy or Lackawanna’s Kathleen Kane get the nomination when the Democrat State Committee meets Jan. 14 to decide?

Congressman Brady's statement regarding vandalizing of Philadelphia's Mt. Carmel Cemetery
Congressman Bob Brady today made the following statement regarding the vandalizing of a Jewish Cemetery in Philadelphia: “This is an absolute disgrace! And, I strongly condemn the desecration of the Jewish portion of the Mt. Carmel Cemetery.

  PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady, (D - PA) joined 164 of his colleagues, including all Democratic members of the House Ways and Means Committee and two House Republicans in sending a letter to demand the tax returns of President Donald Trump for review by the Senate Committee on Finance and House Committee on Ways and Means.  Brady said, “For 40 years our Presidents have released their tax returns in the interest of transparency, but this President has defied what is an important tradition.

Congressman Brady signs amicus brief challenging President Trump’s anti-immigrant and anti-refugee executive order
  PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady, (D., PA) has signed an amicus brief challenging the Trump administration’s anti-immigrant and anti-refugee executive order. The brief in the Eastern District of New York case Darweesh, et. al. v. Trump charges that the Muslim and refugee ban is illegal and is un-American. Brady said, “I was at the Philadelphia airport in the midst of mass confusion when the ban first went into effect.  Hundreds of people with visas who had endured months and sometimes years of vetting were denied entry and some were detained. Even more were stranded enroute to the U.S. It was absolute chaos.”    Brady said, “This order’s religious discrimination is counter to the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process, that as the brief outlines, ‘… incorporates principles of equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment.” Brady, whose Italian and Irish family were immigrants, added,  “My Catholic family came to this country in search of the Ameri
