Time to end Weldon investigation
Editorial from the Delaware County Daily Times:
It has been many months since federal prosecutors accepted the plea agreements of Caso and Grimes and yet no other charges have been filed as a result of the government’s investigation.
That probe included the now famous pre-Election Day raids on the homes of Weldon’s daughter and his political associate Charles Sexton Jr.
It was assumed by some at the time that the Justice Department wouldn’t have taken the extraordinary steps to conduct such raids if it didn’t have substantial evidence of wrongdoing on the part of its targets....
They either have some reasonable evidence that crimes were committed or they don’t. They’ve had more than four years to nail this thing down.
For better or for worse it’s time to bring this matter to a conclusion.
