Philadelphia politico Renee Taraglione was convicted Friday on all 53 counts of conspiracy, theft, fraud, and tax evasion for fleecing a Fairhill mental health clinic for which she was both president and landlord. The U.S. District Court jury of six men and six women deliberated for about four hours before returning the verdict. Tartaglione, 61, scion of a legendary Democratic political family, was indicted last year on 53 counts charging her with conspiracy, theft, fraud, and tax evasion.
The question of whether Philadelphia politico Renee Tartaglione fleeced the Fairhill mental health clinic she led as president — and collected rent from as its landlord — is now in the hands of a federal court jury. In her closing argument Thursday to a jury of six women and six men, Assistant U.S. Attorney Bea Witzleben urged them to find Tartaglione guilty on all 53 counts, charging her with conspiracy, theft, fraud, and tax evasion.
A federal jury will begin deliberating Thursday in the trial of Philadelphia politician Renee Tartaglione, accused of defrauding a North Philadelphia mental health clinic of which she was president and landlord. Defense lawyers William DeStefano and Terri A. Pawelski ended their case Wednesday morning after calling 11 witnesses since Friday. Tartaglione, 61, chose not to testify in her defense.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
