We just got word that the prosecutors at the center of the 'Porngate' email scandal are being transferred out of their units in the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office.
Frank Fina will be transferred from Special Investigations to Civil Litigation; Marc Costanzo will be transferred from Special Investigations to Appeals, and Patrick Blessington will be transferred from Insurance Fraud to the Post Conviction Relief Act Unit.
The transfers are effective Monday and were announced in an email District Attorney Seth Williams sent to his staff within the past hour. City Council passed a resolution today calling on Williams to fire Fina, Costanzo and Blessington.
We're awaiting comment from Williams spokesman Cameron Kline.
Daily News reporter Wendy Ruderman wrote an in-depth story yesterday about Fina's tactics while working in the state Attorney General's Office. Worth a read.
