Newspaper Demands Democratic Congressman Resign

The Philadelphia Inquirer is one of the most liberal newspapers in the country, but give its editorial board credit for calling for the immediate resignation of Democratic US Rep. Chakah Fattah after he was indicted on racketeering charges this week.

From the editorial published Thursday calling for Fattah's resignation:
Such grave allegations, along with the pleas that preceded them, are a blot on what seemed to be a distinguished political career, and the latest in a long line for Philadelphia Democrats. Fattah is entitled to be presumed innocent unless proven otherwise. But he is not entitled to his office.
Editorial: Congressman should resign
