Philly DA Candidate Back on Ballot

A Pennsylvania court has reversed a lower court decision to remove a Philadelphia district attorney candidate from the primary ballot.

Democrat Seth Williams was kicked off the May 19 ballot by a judge who ruled last month that he had failed to disclose all sources of his income as required by law.

A Commonwealth Court panel overturned that ruling on Wednesday.

Attorneys for rival Dan McCaffery said Williams failed to disclose more than $11,000 he received from his campaign committee, which Williams says was reimbursement for campaign expenses.

Williams ran for district attorney in 2005 and narrowly lost to incumbent Lynne Abraham, who is stepping down.
