Welcome to a frigid Friday, with highs not expected to escape the 20s under partly cloudy skies.

Today we bring you a list of disgraced Philly politicians — a list that convicted and now former City Councilmember Bobby Henon joins after resigning ahead of his sentencing.

Also, the Delco cops charged with killing 8-year-old Fanta Bility have been fired.

Add Bobby Henon to the Hall of Shame

There’s a newly vacant seat in City Council — specifically one in Northeast Philly, where the disgraced Bobby Henon sat for three terms.

Henon, who alongside former labor leader John “Johnny Doc” Dougherty was convicted on federal bribery charges in November, resigned yesterday, a month before his sentencing. Henon joins a long list of Philly politicos who were involved in corruption cases and were convicted or pleaded guilty or no contest.

Sharon Hill fired the officers charged with killing Fanta Bility

The Sharon Hill Borough Council voted last night to fire the three police officers charged with shooting and killing 8-year-old Fanta Bility at a football game.

The vote came during a standing-room-only meeting in which some expressed support for the officers, while others voiced their outrage and called for reforms.

The officers fired their weapons at a vehicle they mistakenly believed was involved in a nearby shooting in August, wounding the car’s occupants, as well as four other people, including Fanta. She died in her mother’s arms.
