When are they going to arrest career Phila. politician Allyson Schwartz for fraud ? She represents the 13th congressional district, yet we in the suburbs have never seen her. Isn't that "theft of services" ?

Dude, get a life. You are obsessed with Schwartz to the point of being ridiculous. You obviously have too much time on your hands.
