Is it Ethics season yet?

Mayor Nutter made a big splash on ethics when he took office by appointing three former federal prosecutors to important positions -- inspector general, cheif integrity officer, ethics board member. But he followed with perhaps an even bigger coup by appointing Michael Schwartz, former head of the U.S. Attorney's criminal division, to lead a task force on ethics and campaign task force. Nutter this year asked City Councilman Frank Rizzo to hold off on a package of ethics bills while the task force compiled a report, to be completed by Feb. 1. The Mayor's Task Force on Ethics and Campaign Finance Reform announced Monday a public hearing 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 10, at the Convention Center. Anybody interested in testifying should contact Michael Schwartz at schwartzma@pepperlaw.com. Click here for Philly.com's politics page.
