Photo Finish

Ethics charges have been filed against a former Philadelphia traffic court judge, according to the web page of the Pennsylvania Court of Judicial Discipline. had this March 1 report:

Traffic Court Judge Willie Singletary, suspended for allegedly showing a phone-camera photo of his genitals to an employee, has submitted a resignation.

Common Pleas Court Judge Gary S. Glazer, the acting administrative judge of Traffic Court, said Singletary submitted his resignation by iPhone.

Glazer said, however, that under state law, a judge must resign directly to the governor, so Singletary would have to resubmit his resignation to Gov. Corbett.

Glazer declined to provide the contents of Singletary's resignation e-mail, received this week.

Kevin Harley, a spokesman for Gov. Corbett, said no resignation letter had been received as of Wednesday afternoon.
