APPARENTLY, paying your bills on time isn't a requirement for holding elected office in the city of Philadelphia.
On the same day the Daily News reported that Philadelphia Gas Works had placed a lien on Mayor Nutter's home for being delinquent on his gas bill, news broke that District Attorney Seth Williams was delinquent on his gas bill last year.
The blog Philadelinquency posted about the lien on Williams' property yesterday. Court records show the city placed a lien on Williams' Overbrook home April 14, 2012, and the outstanding bill - $578.73 - was satisfied a month later.
"Unfortunately, like thousands of Philadelphians, I got behind in my gas bill and I made arrangements to catch up," Williams told the Daily News yesterday.
