Watch Dave Davies help stoop-lady Patsy settle a ‘pay to play’ cannoli bet

 Patsy encounters Dave Davies at the S. Broad and Jackson streets bus stop.

Patsy encounters Dave Davies at the S. Broad and Jackson streets bus stop.

In the second of a we-don’t-even-know-how-many-parts “Philly Politics 101” video series, “South Philly stoop lady” Patsy had WHYY’s senior political reporter Dave Davies explain “pay to play” politics.

This chat not only enabled Patsy to win a cannoli bet, but it also inspired her to enact limits on how much pasta a certain presumptuous relative can bring to family dinners. Which is odd. But so is Patsy, NinetyNine guesses.

We hope you’ll learn as much as Patsy did (and will continue to do) in her quest for political knowledge.
