Seth Williams, Lynne Abraham Still Feuding

Were the current D.A.’s comments following arrest of J.P. Miranda directed at the former D.A.?

The Daily News reports that former D.A. Lynne Abraham and current D.A. Seth Williams apparently haven’t smoothed over their rocky relationship. Williams’ remarks about the arrest of Rep. J.P. Miranda — saying prosecutors “will no longer abdicate our responsibility to investigate” political corruption — were interpreted as a swipe at Abraham, his predecessor and onetime mentor.

Who was not impressed:

“Who does he catch in his net?” she asked, referring to Miranda. “This little small fry here.”

Now mulling a run for mayor in 2015, she said she feels sorry for Williams after all these years.

“He’s such an insecure person that he can’t stand on his own two feet,” she said after we read her some of his comments. “He always has to look to me. If it wasn’t so sad, it would be laughable.”

Williams later said his comments were not directed at any particular individual.

    He may catch small the small fry, but at least he’s got lines in the water. Abraham was asleep in the boat.

    (MAN, this is a tortured analogy.)

    With regards to Ms. Abraham – she sure went nowhere fast with that promised investigation into The Second Mile. She quietly slipped from the radar and even Louis Freeh won’t answer this question.

    Why is that? Kids that were clients of a state licensed children’s charity, one that had oversight by the PaOAG, were harmed by the charity’s founder and executive director. Why hasn’t the media bothered to find out why?

    Then there was burial, er, cremation of the other dead girl in the tub at the home of a family friend on The Tough Cookie’s watch in the 80s.
