Meanwhile, former Philadelphia DA Lynne Abraham is close to declaring that she will also be a candidate.
The president of the Second Mile Foundation has resigned in the wake of the sexual abuse scandal involving the program’s founder, Jerry Sandusky. Former Philadelphia DA Lynne Abraham is the charity’s new lawyer.
Abraham, like Ed Rendell, has enjoyed a high profile in both the City of Philadelphia and its vote-rich suburbs.
Abraham, the first female DA in Philadelphia history, served in that office from 1991 until January 2010.
