Philly City Attorney Involved in Anti-Trump Graffiti Says He Made “Dumb Mistake” Still Has His Job
Yesterday, we told you about an attorney who works for the city of Philadelphia who got busted on camera. He was part of a two man team which engaged in vandalism of a building with anti-Trump graffiti.
Today, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that he has acknowledged his part in the act and that he still has his job for some reason.
From their report:
Kenney: Anti-Trump vandalism involving city attorney ‘dumb mistake’
A city attorney involved in an anti-Donald Trump vandalism incident, caught on camera, made a “dumb mistake,” and remains in his job for now Mayor Kenney said Thursday.
Duncan Lloyd, an assistant city solicitor, was identified in surveillance footage that captured Lloyd and a second man walking along Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill on Nov 25. In the footage, Lloyd is seen wearing a blue blazer and holding a glass of wine, filming or taking photos, while a second man spray paints “F— Trump,” on the wall of a newly opened Fresh Market.
As of Thursday morning, police said no arrests have been made in the incident and Kenney said Lloyd remains employed with the city.
“It’s still working out. It’s certainly hateful and inappropriate and unacceptable…but people are human beings and they make mistakes and it’s a dumb mistake,” Kenney said.
Here’s the video that got him busted:
Byron York of the Washington Examiner noted the irony on Twitter:
Apparently Philadelphia does not prosecute vandalism if a) it is anti-Trump, and b) it involves a city lawyer. https://t.co/GlEGLwn0gR
