The calls make no mention of the time frame of Yeager’s work. Republican Web ads include a grainy photo of Abu-Jamal alongside an image of Boockvar, who was in her teens at the time of Abu-Jamal's conviction.
Goldin, a prominent literary agent, was one of 95 protesters arrested in 1999 during a demonstration outside the Liberty Bell. Yeager later defended her against the charges she faced. He and Boockvar were partners in their own law firm at the time. Public records show that Goldin was charged with petty offenses related to the protest and, along with her one-year probation, charged a $25 assessment and $250 fine.
Hello, I'm calling from the National Republican Congressional Committee at 320 First Street
Southeast in Washington, DC 20003, 202-479-7000, with a recorded message about congressional candidate and legal activist Kathy Boockvar and convicted Philadelphia cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.
The husband-and-wife law firm of Boockvar and Yeager has represented one of the leading activists for Mumia Abu-Jamal – and Boockvar's husband was a lawyer for a witness to the murder who accused the cops of pressuring her.
Boockvar's husband himself accused the Philadelphia police of intimidating witnesses to the murder.
Boockvar's colleague at a legal activist group accused the Philadelphia police union of having the state's Supreme Court in its pocket when it comes to Abu-Jamal.
Last year, a group tied to Boockvar's husband, held an event at the Constitution Center honoring Mumia Abu-Jamal. The cop killer called into the event from prison.
