County leader critisized over urination case

Court case

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) – Some Democrats want the chairman of a southeastern Pennsylvania county party committee to resign after he received a second citation for public urination.

Chairman Brian McGinnis told the Daily Local News of West Chester that he will not step down. He says he has never been arrested and says the urination citation stems from a medical issue that he’s dealt with.

West Chester lawyer Samuel Stretton, a county committeeman and a former party legal adviser, says the incident is a serious matter for someone in political leadership and McGinnis should resign.

McGinnis was cited for the infraction on July 11. He has had brushes with the law before. He was cited for urinating on the courthouse steps in 2005, disorderly conduct in 1998 and 2003, and harassment in 1999.
