Rendell, Goode Sr. start legal fund for Fattah's son
Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 05/12/2013 | Craig R. McCoy and Mark Fazlollah

Posted on 05/12/2013 2:15:49 PM PDT by Kid Shelleen

Former Gov. Ed Rendell and former Mayor W. Wilson Goode have launched a fund-raising effort to pay the legal bills of U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah's son, who has been under federal investigation for months.

Rendell said he agreed to pitch in after Rep. Fattah contacted him for help.

Rendell, in an interview, estimated that the Philadelphia congressman and his wife had spent $250,000 to help Chaka "Chip" Fattah Jr., 30, and said the costs had become a "little bit of a struggle" for the family.

On Thursday, Rendell said the fund would not reveal the donors or amounts - even to Rep. Fattah.

What kind of name is that? “O by the way I’m making some Chaka Chip Cookies”

Chaka Fattah’s original name is Arthur Davenport. His sister’s current name is Queen Mother Falaka Fattah.

El Rushbo refers to him as Chaka Full-O-Nuts.

I’ve been born and raised in Pennsylvania so I know Rendell very well ... Ed Rendell is the poster boy for all that is corrupt, fat, obnoxious, and disgusting about politicians.

Onyx, I think I need a grammar lesson. Which version is the correct one? When I went back and looked at my original comment, it didn’t sit right with me.

Federal authorities are investigating why a company owned by the son of U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah was paid $450,000 by an education firm that has received millions in contracts from the Philadelphia School District, according to sources familiar with the probe.

Agents from the FBI and U.S. Treasury Department served two search warrants early Wednesday for Chaka Fattah Jr.’s records, the first at his apartment at the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton. They also seized Fattah’s records and a computer from the Logan Square law office of David T. Shulick. He is president of Delaware Valley High School, a for-profit company that contracts with school districts to educate students with discipline problems.

The younger Fattah, 29, known as “Chip,” is owner of a consulting company called 259 Strategies L.L.C. that works as a subcontractor for Shulick’s companies. Fattah Jr. has working space at the law office.

The $450,000 payment from Shulick’s company is more than 10 percent of the approximately $4 million that Delaware Valley will receive from the School District this year.

Now, I am certain it is just a coincidence that finding money for education - especially money for those labeled “disadvantaged” — happens to be one Chaka Fattah, Sr.’s principal legislative accomplishments. He staked out that territory first with the Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) which, even though you may never have heard of it has passed out a cool 4 billion bucks to help “disadvantaged” youth get ready for college. Since those early days, the Congressman has been busy getting more federal money for targeted recipients.

Chaka Fattah’s son is in more legal hot water, as the city of Philadelphia has filed a tax lien against Chaka Fattah Jr. for unpaid business privilege taxes, reports said.

The $31,434 lien filed two weeks ago by the city’s Revenue Department is for taxes, penalties and interest owed in 2010 and 2011, the Inquirer reported. The lien could enable the city to freeze the younger Fattah’s bank accounts or prevent the sale of any real estate he owns.

Fattah runs a management consulting firm called 259 Strategies LLC. In February, the FBI delivered subpoenas to Fattah’s condominium at Residences at the Ritz and at an office he had at Delaware Valley High School, an alternative school that Fattah did work for.

According to the Inquirer, Revenue Commissioner Keith Richardson said the lien pre-dates the FBI search, but took months to complete.

Fattah has not commented about either action.

How anybody forget it? The story behind the story was that Goode was re-elected despite dropping a bomb on his own city.

I love it when liberals get busted for not paying their taxes.

My liberal brother re-posts every pro-Dem article from HuffPo and he is always in trouble with the IRS.
