/ WDAC

HARRISBURG (AP) – Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo is asking a PA judge to remove a state representative from office after she was sentenced to probation in a bribery case. A civil suit was filed that seeks the removal of Democrat Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown of Philadelphia. She was convicted in October of taking $4,000 in bribes from a confidential informant. She was unopposed and re-elected in last month’s balloting. Chardo says the 52-year-old lawmaker last week tried to sponsor a legislative resolution. A House Democratic Caucus spokesman says she hasn’t stepped down.
