Is this just a “dumb mistake?” A Philly City Attorney, Duncan Lloyd, 32, was involved in anti-Trump graffiti…and he is still on the job.

The incident occurred around midnight on November 25. Damages are estimated between $3,000 and $10,000. Philadelphia’s anti-graffiti law allows for a maximum fine of $300 and/or imprisonment for up to 90 days. [Philadelphia Code 9-618 (5a)]

Philly.com reported,

Duncan Lloyd, an assistant city solicitor, was identified in surveillance footage that captured Lloyd and a second man walking along Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill on Nov 25. In the footage, Lloyd is seen wearing a blue blazer and holding a glass of wine, filming or taking photos, while a second man spray paints “F— Trump,” on the wall of a newly opened Fresh Market. 

Here is the video released by police:

So let’s review. Mr. Lloyd is carrying around an open glass of wine on a public thoroughfare, which is a violation of Philadelphia Code 10-604. It carries a fine of between $50 and $300.

The video clearly shows Mr. Lloyd walking with the offender, even at a distance. Perhaps that’s his definition of “plausible deniability” but it is totally worthless in this case. He also flashes a glance at the camera at one point as he passes it.

He knew exactly what he was doing. As his pal spray painted the graffiti, it appears that he filmed it on his cell phone. When finished, both of them appear to split up and walk quickly away.

A “dumb mistake”

“It’s still working out. It’s certainly hateful and inappropriate and unacceptable…but people are human beings and they make mistakes and it’s a dumb mistake. It’s hateful graffiti, hateful graffiti is never acceptable whether it’s a city employee or not.” Democrat Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney

Lloyd has worked for the city’s legal department since 2011, litigating federal and state discrimination lawsuits. He is said to be cooperating with law enforcement on the matter, but is still working for the city and has not been placed on administrative leave.

“We will decide on a course of action once we obtain more information about the investigation.” First Deputy City Solicitor Craig Straw

The course of action? He should be fired, or at the minimum suspended without pay for time and charged for both the vandalism and the open container of alcohol. But then, liberals feel they are above the law. And it is Philadelphia, after all.
