Bucks County prosecutor demoted for working as a DoorDash driver has resigned
Gregg Shore was removed from his position as first assistant district attorney last month.
A top Bucks County prosecutor who was demoted last month after his supervisors discovered he was moonlighting as a DoorDash driver on county time has resigned.
Gregg Shore, 49, stepped down from his position as a deputy district attorney Tuesday, according to county officials. He did not return a request for comment.
District Attorney Matthew Weintraub, in announcing Shore’s demotion, said his conduct was “indefensible, thoughtless, selfish, and so stupid.” But Weintraub didn’t fire Shore, noting his decade of service to the county, including the high-profile prosecution of Cosmo DiNardo and his cousin Sean Kratz for a series of 2017 murders in Solebury Township.
“I believe in second chances, I preach redemption, and I believe people can be better after learning from their mistakes,” Weintraub said. “It’s now incumbent upon me to practice what I preach.”
Weintraub removed Shore from his position as first assistant — essentially the second-in-command of the District Attorney’s Office — cut his salary by $22,000, and required him to forfeit vacation time to pay back the hours he spent working for DoorDash.
After the demotion was announced last month, Shore, who was paid nearly $130,000 a year as a prosecutor, said in an interview that “personal circumstances” forced him to work the second job. He drove for the food delivery service “mostly on nights and weekends,” but said he “sometimes made the incredibly poor decision to do so during the workday.”
“By doing so, I betrayed my colleagues, my boss, and the citizens of Bucks County,” Shore said.
Weintraub promoted Jennifer Schorn, a veteran prosecutor in his office, to the first assistant position.
