how to recognize an ebola patient and properly protect ones with proper protective gear. right now, we will take a breaking news story with district attorney seth williams. >> in the month since this matter arose, a great deal has happened that has served to distract public attention from the underlying case. whether by design or otherwise. those external events have taken on a life of their own. they continue to swirl through the news cycles. whatever the merits of those other matters may be, i believe it is important -- it is imperative to remember where we started with evidence of widespread yet supposedly not
prosecutable political corruption. as it turns out, however, and as the grand jury has now found, the facts in at least one case so far are about as simple as they probably seemed to the average citizen back at the beginning. this is a bracelet. it's a $2,000 charm bracelet. the bracelet that judge tynes received for promising special access to a businessman who said he was seeking an exclusive and very lucrative government contract. as a presentment -- as it lays out, the businessman met with two elected officials and an
executive of the philadelphia parking authority who directed him to judge tynes. in a series of conversations, the businessman spelled out what he wanted. and the judge promised to deliver. we know the exact words, because the businessman was wired for sound. at their first private meeting the businessman said, we're not going to the park, right? we're trying to go to the bank. the judge responded, dealing with the greens. at their next meeting the businessman handed the judge the bracelet. in its blue box and bag as "a little token of our appreciation for helping us negotiate this traffic court contract."
the businessman assured the judge that she would be treated as a consultant on his business arrangements. he told her, we could set it up so that you never have to work another day in your life. after the judge promised to meet with the court's administrative judge later that day, the two toasted their deal to making some money together, said the businessman, to making money responded the judge. the businessman mentioned that from time to time he might have some clients with traffic court problems. just call me said the judge. i will deal with them. clear, convincing and compelling eviden evidence, all -- all on tape. months later, after she was called before a federal grand
jury, the judge contacted the businessman and told him she wanted to pay him for the bracelet. but she never did. she never returned it. she never reported it. that's where things stood this past march when i first learned of this case along with everyone else in the commonwealth of pennsylvania. it took a while, but eventually my office received some of the materials from the investigative file. in june, i convened a grand jury. i stated then publically that the public deserved to know what happened. i stated then that the public and the accused deserved due process and that i would give it to them. and we have. that was four months ago. things might have moved even
faster, but there have been some disappointing, frustrating delays that i'm not free to discuss at this point. what i can say, however, is that this investigation was not dead on arrival. it is definitely not over. and it is most certainly moving ahead with a full head of steam. we know there are others who have intimate knowledge of these events. we urge them to come forward to share with us what they know. before the investigation goes forward without them. i would like to acknowledge the grand jurors who are still working hard and in secret. they have a very difficult job. and i want to thank them personally on behalf of my entire team. i also want to thank the pennsylvania state police who have been working with us every day since i assumed the prosecution of this case. we also extend our thanks to the
pennsylvania house ethics committee, which has agreed with our request that the grand jury investigation proceed before the committee takes further action, in order to avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts and preclude any potential conflicts. we greatly appreciate the committee's cooperation. when there is more to report, we will be back. until that time, the public and the accused -- and the accused should know that we are involved in a thorough and deliberate investigation with only one goal, one singular purpose, justice. thank you. are there any questions? >> you mentioned difficulties that have delayed the process. what materials would you like to get? >> we were listening to district attorney seth williams announcing the results of a
