Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner signed a pledge this week from the Justice Collaborative, vowing to not seek or accept campaign contributions from law enforcement unions. Let’s review.
Krasner has been in an almost constant state of verbal warfare with Lodge 5 of the Fraternal Order of Police in Philadelphia. The FOP has a banner plane — message: “Support Philly Police. Dump Krasner“ — flying above Jersey Shore beaches every weekend until Labor Day.
Krasner hit back last week in a fund-raising email, calling the group “disgruntled” retired cops who believe “no one should ever challenge the thin blue line, no matter the abuse and discrimination that occurs in our communities.”
Clout is betting Krasner never breaks a sweat living up to the pledge.
