Seth Williams Taking on Mark Zuckerberg in Battle Over Snitching
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who’s in hot water with New Jersey Democrats for hosting a fundraiser for Chris Christie, is now pissing off one prominent PA Dem too. Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams is publicly calling for Facebook to remove posts he says qualify as witness intimidation.
A 20-year-old Kensington man was charged in December with using the social networking site to threaten a woman who was testifying against his friends in a case involving straw purchases of firearms. The site has so far refused to remove posts Freddie Henriquez wrote declaring that he wanted to “kill rats,” Williams said. He said he is sending a letter to CEO mark Zuckerberg asking for the posts to be removed after the site denied previous requests.
Williams says that Zuckerberg has repeatedly refused. [Inquirer]
