Fox 29 Accused Of Racism In City Council
PHILADELPHIA -- The opening session of Philadelphia's city council is often filled with warm wishes and good feelings for the days ahead.
But on Thursday, during the first meeting, a top aide to a city councilman accused this television station and its investigative reporter of racism.
The aide works for Councilman Wilson Goode, Jr. During the past several weeks, we've been asking her and the councilman questions about her work habits at city hall.
On Thursday morning, Fox 29's Jeff Cole tried again to get some answers, and that's when the hand-made, accusatory signs came out.
"Hey Latrice, can I talk to you real quickly? Latrice, before you run," Cole said to the aide.
Latrice Bryant is a top legislative aide to Goode. She's ducking questions we have about the amount of time she spends at city hall working for the councilman.
Here's why we're asking: during work weeks in June and July, Fox 29 Investigates kept an eye on Bryant as she made her way to and from her job at city hall.
We saw her -- time and time again -- showing up late while indicating on her time sheets that she started work, often, hours earlier.
Bryant, who has worked for Goode for nearly nine years, declined to be interviewed and told us to talk to her boss.
So, on Thursday we came to the opening session of city council to try to get some answers.
But after Bryant dodged us, she took a seat behind Goode in council chambers and held up hand-written signs accusing Fox 29 and Cole of racism.
The accusations came moments after Goode reacted angrily to our attempts to question Bryant.
"Don't you ever disrespect a black woman like that again," Goode said.
After the session ended, we tried to speak with Goode about Bryant's work habits and her accusatory signs.
"What is racist about me asking you about your publicly-paid employee and her hours, sir?" Cole asked.
"I am going to send you a written response and I'm going to talk to them about whatever they want to talk about," Goode said.
In the response, Goode wrote that he won't dismiss Bryant's nine-year work track record based on possible "mistakes" on her time sheets.
He says he has tightened the sign-in process in his office but wouldn't answer questions about her work hours.
"But when someone signs timesheets a few days later and goes back it's, they're prone to make mistakes," Goode said.
"Councilman, how can somebody claim they're in at 8:30 whey they show up at 11:30?" Cole asked.
"Get out of my way," Goode said.
"I'm sorry, councilman. I'll get right out of your way," Cole said.
Goode said he didn't see Bryant's signs.
In his written statement, Goode wrote that it is impossible for him to go back in time to recollect an employees work hours. And he adds that time sheets in his office will now be filled-out on a daily basis.

Re: More CRAZY White Racism!!
its everywhere. just call or go in some tax or license office office on friday afternoon, nobody there except one poor soul left to take messages. you still pay full salary to all these absent people. she gets her hair done every wednesday morning, too. any excuse to get out of the office and avoid doing what they are paid to do. its politics. she campaigned for the mayor last time and will next time. showing up at office at all is just for show.
