Ed Rendell’s Opinions on the Ray Rice case

EDRendellSept8,2014imageI spoke today in Philadelphia with former Pennsylvania Governor and former Philadelphia District Attorney Ed Rendell about the TMZ video of Ray Rice and his then fiance in an elevator in Atlantic City. Rendell says if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had seen the full video (THE NFL is reported today as saying Goodell had not), then that Goodell should resign. I asked Rendell about whether he would have prosecuted Ray Rice (Rice entered into a pre-trial intervention program avoiding prosecution and getting potential expungement of the charges) and Rendell said he would have prosecuted. The former Philadelphia D.A. says the video is enough evidence to take to a judge or jury, even if the victim does not press charges.

ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE REVEALS REAL HIGHSMITH

Mummer Steve 2014-09-04 at 8.58.38 PM#ALSIceBucketChallenge Steve Highsmith takes the ice bucket challenge, outside the Mummers Museum, in the heart of South Philadelphia.

Greater Overbrook String Band and many of the giving Mummers community, cheered on as Mummers Museum President Rusty Martz and veteran String Band musician Jay Nestor doused Steve with the ice cold water, which stripped away the business veneer of the veteran broadcaster, revealing his true inner Mummerness.  At least, that’s our story.

Let’s find a cure for ALS and all neurological and muscular diseases!  Special thank you to Jay and South Philadelphia String Band for the fab suit.
