-- Rep. Martina White (R-Philadelphia) issued the following statement in response to District Attorney Larry Krasner’s letter to the committee asking its hearings on Sept. 29 and 30 be moved from the Philadelphia Navy Yard:
“District Attorney Larry Krasner was given ample opportunity to work with the committee but was found in contempt for not complying with a lawful subpoena. This committee is holding fact-finding hearings in Philadelphia and Mr. Krasner’s efforts to instigate his most radical supporters to disrupt the committee’s hearings will not be tolerated or successful.
“Victims of crime who have suffered due to the actions and inaction of the District Attorney will not be silenced any longer. Whistleblowers should have every right to come forward. What is Larry Krasner hiding?”
