Foie Gras and the Feds

It looks like local chefs can breathe a temporary sigh of relief. Councilman Jack Kelly might be too busy to reintroduce his bill to ban foie gras now that he is the subject of a FBI probe.

According to the Daily News:

His relationship with the two real-estate developers, who have large holdings in Northeast Philadelphia and a growing stock of Center City properties, came under scrutiny last year, when three of their partnerships gave a combined $30,000 to Kelly’s re-election campaign.

Under the city’s new campaign-finance laws, contributions are annually limited to $2,500 from an individual and $10,000 from a partnership or political action committee.

Hmmm. Wonder if they had to gavage that extra $20,000 down his throat?
