|Democrat Bob Brady under federal investigation – media silent|
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is defending Rep. Bob Brady amid a federal probe into allegations his campaign illegally paid a primary challenger to drop out in 2012.
The investigation came to light this week after Carolyn Cavaness, a former campaign manager and fiancé of Jimmie Moore, Brady’s 2012 challenger, pleaded guilty for her role in helping illegally transfer $90,000 from the lawmaker’s campaign coffers to Moore.
Pelosi said she has confidence in Brady, who has served in the chamber for nearly two decades and is the top Democrat on the House Administration Committee.
“I know that Congressman Brady has fully cooperated with authorities and he has done nothing wrong,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters during her weekly press conference Thursday.
Pelosi said she hasn’t talked to Brady about the investigation, which was revealed earlier this week. Brady, a central figure in Pennsylvania politics who has led the Philadelphia Democratic Party for 30 years, has denied any wrongdoing in the case through his attorney.
