In the Philadelphia Board of Ethics settlement agreement released earlier this week, Renee Tartaglione admitted to participating in the re-election campaign of Philadelphia state Rep. Angel Cruz - by ordering 2,000 sample ballots that deliberately misled voters who wanted Cruz back in office.
That and other political activities were enough to get Tartaglione, the 27-year-long chief deputy of the City Commissioners Office, in trouble with the ethics board. She wound up quitting as a result, and agreeing to pay a $2,700 civil fine.
But her actions aren't enough to trigger the interest of District Attorney Seth Williams, not so far anyway.
Press aide Alexandra Hackett told the Inquirer in a statement this morning that the ethics board had not referred the Tartaglione matter to the District Attorney's office.
