Philadelphia Traffic Court Judge Willie F. Singletary knows a thing or two, OR 55, about traffic tickets. That’s because, a year ago, his driver’s licenses was suspended through 2011 due to 55 traffic violations totalling $11,427, as reported by the Philadelphia Daily News. And he was elected Traffic Court Judge after he got busted!
Now, though, having been in office only since January 7, 2007, he’s looking at a different kind of trouble.
The state Judicial Conduct Board issued a complaint yesterday charging Willie F. Singletary, 28, with five counts of misconduct for soliciting campaign donations from the Philadelphia First State Road Rattlers Motorcycle Club on April 22, 2007.
Here’s what allegedly went down. How do people think this kind of thing won’t come out?
Then, Singletary asked each biker to give him $20 for his campaign, in violation of state judicial conduct rules, according to the 11-page complaint.
“There’s going to be a basket going around because I’m running for Traffic Court Judge, right, and I need some money,” he said, according to the complaint.
“Now, you all want me to get there, you’re all going to need my hook-up, right,” he continued. “It costs money,” he added. “I have to raise $15,000 by Friday. I just hope you have it.”
I’ll give the Judge this: He eliminated the need to read between the lines. And it’s on YouTube, right here!
Shazam! Here’s the article.
