Philly Anchor's Husband Speaks Out about Racketeering Charges Against Him


WCAU Anchor Renee Chenault-Fattah's husband, Congressman Chaka Fattah is speaking for the first time since being indicted on racketeering charges. 

The 11-term Democrat said Monday he is "innocent of any and all of these allegations,'' telling reporters that he hasn't been involved in the misappropriation of funds as an elected official.

Fattah referred to other members of Congress accused of wrongdoing who were later exonerated and also criticized prosecutors for what he called "efforts to attack'' his family. Fattah's wife, Renee Chenault-Fattah, who is an anchor at WCAU News in Philadelphia, hasn't been charged but was accused by prosecutors of involvement in a sham transaction involving a Porsche that she maintains was "a legitimate sale.''

She remains off the air since the indictment was handed down.
