The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has impeached Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner. The House voted 107 to 85 in favor of impeachment. This means that a 2/3rds majority in the Pennsylvania Senate may vote to remove Krasner from his role if they choose to do so. Earlier this year, a committee of three Republicans and two Democrats representing Philadelphia areas was formed to investigate Krasner. "We put ourselves on the record that we stand with the people of Philadelphia who have been living in fear for their lives and the safety of themselves and their families," were the words of Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff.

They are upset that Krasner has made it easier for criminals to move about their state freely. They don't want to see extended freedom privileges for known criminals. They want to see criminal reform that truly keeps their neighborhoods safer. The District Attorney easily won re-election last year but insists that the city is not facing a crime wave. He even received support from George Soros to fund his campaign to help push that message. Financial records show that Soros spent approximately $29 million on District Attorney races across the country in this cycle.

They show the increased crime statistics as proof that Krasner is not doing his job well. For example, there has been a 50% increase in property crime in the Philadelphia area in the last few years. Despite this, Krasner insists that there is nothing to worry about. Impeachment is the only option the House of Representatives felt it had left after the district attorney ignored the people's will. The resolution passed against Krasner also notes that he dismissed more than two dozen junior staff under him who also could have pursued some of the criminals who are running rampant in Philadelphia because of the lack of action and urgency. This is yet another thing that House Republicans in Pennsylvania want the people there to understand. Krasner is not doing anyone any favors by dismissing staff who might have been able to clamp down on some of the crime problems. They feel that he needs to be removed ASAP.
