I mean, obviously, the gimmick was at the right time in the right place and things like that. But it's actually a pretty good performer. But do you think that this sort of gets overlooked because the gimmick was was what was it? Does it really does Sean Morley? It was an excellent talent do believe that he could have been a a main event top guy. I think that the gimmick just held held them back from where you didn't wanna a former porn star in in your main event, you know, in that persona and that character. So I think that did hold him back into matter. What you did that albatross is always going to be hung around his neck. What guys be was turned down? A gimmick. Like that. Obviously there will be no more porn star giving coming. But I'm just saying if there is a gimmick that, you know, in your heart is not going to be the main event. How do you push back?

"Charges yesterday Philadelphia city councilman Bobby Heenan pleading not guilty to related charges today. Dougherty three others with their quarterback Steve tower covered. It all is with us. Now in Steve a very brief preceding, the only a few minutes, minimal dialogue and open court. He answered to charges that included conspiracy, bribery and fraud, and after the ninety one counts against him were read out loud. He replied with two words, not guilty and the magistrate bail. And he was free to go outside the courthouse surrounded by reporters and photographers. Dougherty said the indictment is just a charge and he was comfortable with the team of lawyers. He said he would continue doing this job. And we'll have a ton of opportunity to get his personal thoughts. Once they look into the charges. The fifty eight year old electricians union leader, charged with running a six year long scheme to allegedly steal more than a half million. Dollars from the union and covering up misspent funds by falsifying documents, Steve the charges include conspiracy, bribery and fraud. Prosecutors say if convicted the defendants could face decades in prison, and you were telling me you did see a healthy professional respect displayed between the opposing corners. This is going to be a real slug fest in court, and that's what made this interesting in this professional exchange as participants settled in Steve the prosecution team on one side the defense on the other.

"Councilman Bobby Heenan and six others all charged in a public corruption indictment by federal grand jury. We have several reports for you this morning on the charges and reaction to the charges. We begin with the indictment KYW Steve Tulloch while the one hundred sixteen count indictment includes elements of the alleged crimes, including embezzlement, wire fraud and other public corruption. Offenses first assistant US attorney Jennifer arbiter Williams alleges they pilfered over six hundred thousand dollars from the hardworking union members. They're supposed to serve she points to workers performing electrical work and the installation of TV's and security systems at a union officials home business and that his family members and associates homes. The indictment alleges that this exchange of contracts for personal gifts wasn't abuse of the trust placed in Dougherty as a leader of a labor organization, and that it was a federal crime. The feds say. No one was built or paid for the work. The indictment zeroes in on councilman. Bobby Heenan still on local ninety eight payroll. The feds say Heenan used his position on council to serve Docherty's interest in arbiter Williams words to do his bidding in addition to Dougherty and heynen five other union members and a businessman also face charges. Steve Taiwa KYW NewsRadio union leader. John docherty. Spokesman put out a statement on behalf of the longtime IB e w local ninety eight business manager saying in part every movie makers done in order to better the lives of the membership and went on to say to allege that John in any way, attended to defraud the union he cares about. So deeply is preposterous. The Union's political director Morita Crawford was indicted on embezzlement and fraud charges. He's obviously very upset that these allegations have been made against her. They're not true. And you know, she she's looking forward for the opportunity to challenge the allegations that have been made defense attorney, Fred Perry represents her and calls the charges ridiculous. We look forward for the opportunity to present this case before a fair-minded jury to clear her name, and we have no doubt that that will be the ultimate outcome.

Steve this one hundred sixteen cop public corruption indictment of federal grand jury returning that indictment. Charging local ninety eight union leader John Docherty city councilman Bobby Heenan five more IB e w union officials including its current president Brian boroughs and current political director Morita Crawford as well as a businessman. I assistant US attorney Jennifer arbiter Williams as well as the special agents in charge of the Philadelphia division of the FBI. In IRS, outlining the elements to reporters here at the US attorney's office in center city, Steve arbiter Williams says union leaders and public officials should be held to similar standards required to act in the best interest of others. But Williams says when they violate that duty to benefit themselves. It's a federal crime the bottom line is that this indictment alleges a John Docherty his co-defendants. He's local ninety eight funds as their own. Paying for their personal travel meals shopping parties, home improvements and much more. Ultimately, costing the union and its hard members over six hundred thousand dollars. That over a six-year period, according to the federal indictment, Steve the charges include conspiracy to embezzle union funds conspiracy to commit fraud wire fraud theft from local ninety eight falsifying a labor union financial records and other public corruption. Offenses, Steve the eight are expected to be arraigned Friday afternoon covered city hall for some time and a question that will be answered as this pans out. A sitting member of of city council would they be expected to resign if indicted or would they have to wait until they were convicted under that circumstance? Well, so far Bobby heathen has said he's hoping for the support of his council member colleagues that these are only charges right now. So at this point, we are told that Bobby Heenan has no intention to resign. But he is charged with multiple corruption charges. He was a longtime right hand man to John Docherty for years. Bobby Hedin was Docherty's political director, and that's indeed how he got his job on city council. And according to the indictment heat and received a salary and other things of value from Dougherty and in exchange heat and used his position as a member of city council to serve Docherty's interests when she gave the news conference Jennifer arbiter Williams said that heathen was doing Docherty's bidding many questions to be answered this through the week. I had a Friday on that initial court appearance. Thank you Steve Steve power with us covering this story hazard.
