Under Cloud, Commissioner Tartaglione’s Daughter Leaves City Post

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The daughter of one of the city’s top elected officials has left her job as her mother’s deputy, following an investigation by the Philadelphia Board of Ethics.

The Board of Ethics has found that deputy city commissioner Renee Tartaglione had repeatedly violated the restriction on city workers engaging in political activities, according to Shane Creamer, executive director of the board.

“Deputy city commissioner Tartaglione has admitted that she took part in the affairs of candidate campaigns and also the affairs of the Democratic City Committee.”

Renee Tartaglione is the daughter of an elected city commissioner, Marge Tartaglione.  Renee has resigned her job, has agreed not to seek another city job for one year, and will pay $2,700 in fines.

“Ms. Tartaglione resolved this matter in a quick, efficient and very amicable fashion with the board,” said her attorney, William Brennan.  “And I think that speaks volumes to her character.”

    Really? I think what speaks volumes to her character is that she has repeatedly
    violated the restrictions on city workers. The fact that she didn’t make a fuss means that she wants to keep all this as low key as she can so she can pick up where she left off, in a year. Just another low life!

    Philadelphia, the city made great by our parents and grandparents hard work and forever being ruined by financial mismanagement, political incompetence fraud and abuse which includes crooked politicians. She will be re-hired and a person that should get the job will not even be considered. Absolute MF embarrassment

    BFD, she can’t seek another city job for 1 year. And on day 366, she will be rehired for another city post. Book it. This is already in the works.
