Itchin’ for a fight

    Don’t mess with mama.

    Philadelphia City Commissioner Marge Tartaglione, the mother of former Deputy Commissioner Renee Tartaglione, was asked about her daughter’s violations of the city ethics code this morning.  After a follow up question on whether the office of the City Commissioners itself is corrupt, Marge reportedly told the reporter, from Philadelphia Weekly, that she would punch him out (we have the audio to back this up) while emphatically denying that her office is corrupt.

    Needless to say, we will have more on this story (including the tape) from Tom MacDonald later on All Things Considered.  Also, here’s a link to a new post by the threatened reporter, Aaron Kase.
