Philly Clout: Did Fattah get railroaded by federal judge?
Chaka Fattah is facing some serious prison time next week at his sentencing hearing on federal corruption charges. We don't expect U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III to give the 60-year-old ex-congressman the 17 to 22 years the feds are asking for, but a double-digit sentence is entirely possible.



Philly Clout: Turnpike manager rips his bosses in email minutes before retirement
FILE THIS ONE under: 'Well, You Asked.' Michael Stuban, a midlevel manager at the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, retired on Thanksgiving after a 35-year career that started in a tollbooth. But not before leaving a memorable exit questionnaire.



Philly Clout: Is Pistachio Girl's Trumpster persona a publicity stunt?
THE SUSPICIONS have been swirling around Emily Youcis for the better part of 2016, after the animated cartoonist known to Phillies fans as Pistachio Gir' rebranded herself as a staunch supporter of Donald Trump and darling of the so-called alt-right.



Clout: Island casino pays Rendell 5G a month for ... what?
Did you catch that fantastic Bloomberg story last weekend about Best Sunshine Live, the curiously named and wildly profitable casino in the middle of nowhere that may or may not be a massive money-laundering operation?

But Clinton's campaign apparently isn't budging on its refusal to put up so-called "street money" for the Democratic City Committee, cash that filters down to the division level to help fund the push for voter turnout.



Clout: That I-95 tractor-trailer political ad? Yeah, illegal
POLITICIANS NEED to get their names in front of your eyeballs. Any way they can. TV, internet, print. Hats, T-shirts, buttons. Billboards. Diner menus. Baby diapers. Drink coasters and beer koozies. Mouse pads and toilet paper. Signs on lawns, signs on buildings, signs attached to 18-wheelers parked strategically on highway overpasses.



Philly Clout: Uber driver 'Thomas' is better known as Milton Street
Former hot dog vendor, former state senator, and two-time mayoral candidate T. Milton Street Sr., 75, is now an Uber driver. But he's no longer endorsing Donald Trump.



Philly Clout: With $3 tip, Trump was a cad to a caddie
LET'S STOP BICKERING and just stipulate that Donald Trump is a creep. A real crumb bum, as the late Frank Rizzo would say. Or, as Mayor Kenney tweeted this week, a "weirdo perv."



Philly Clout: Jim Kenney's rebirth of cool?
For a mayor who, as Philly Mag alleged, is waging a "War on Cool," Jim Kenney is looking pretty cool this week.
