“We want to highlight the dereliction of duty that we’ve seen from this district attorney,” State Representative Josh Kail told “Fox & Friends First” co-host Todd Piro. “Lives have been lost, property has been destroyed, and really families have been crushed. Enough is enough. And we need to do something, and we need to get back to the basics in this commonwealth and in this nation.”
“Really, we need to get back to law and order,” he continued. “Chaos has had too much of a reign in Philadelphia, and it’s time to stop it.”
“It certainly isn’t an easy process, and it’s an extraordinary step,” State Rep. Tim O’Neal said. “But we’re confident that this is going to be a bipartisan effort. Larry Krasner’s failures as a district attorney in Philadelphia are well known and very public.”
“He’s completely lost his mind,” they added. “The people of the city aren’t backing him. Former leaders of the city, current leaders of the city, have called for… him to step in and start prosecuting crimes.”
