Former candidate for congress filing federal charges

Former republican candidate for congress, Derek walker, says he's planning on filing federal election tampering charges.

Walker claims a district attorney, police chief and political rival sabotaged his run for office by charging him with a number of crimes just days before the primary.

The announcement comes the same day He took a plea deal in relation to those charges. Walker entered a guilty plea to four misdemeanors -- in exchange all felony charges were dropped.

Walker says he feels like he was cheated by our local government and legal officials because they brought those charges against him just days before the election.

He says it was a political conspiracy, and he claims he has the evidence to prove it. Walker says he took a plea deal in court because it would be best for everyone involved, mainly his ex girlfriend. He admits that he was at her apartment, but says he didn't do anything wrong. "I'm guilty of an immature moment but I didn't deserve what happened."

Walker says he's taking the Clearfield County district attorney along with several other people to federal court. He says they smeared his name and tampered with a federal election.

"This D.A. has an ax to grind politically." He claims the D.A., along with an assistant D.A., the Clearfield Borough Police Chief, and a political rival worked together to bring these charges to light.

He says his girlfriend was opposed to that, and he says he has hard evidence to prove it. "There are witnesses that are willing to testify along with other evidence."

Walker firmly believes that he would have won the primary's if it weren't for the last minute charges, and he wants the people who he says are responsible for his loss to face the consequences.

"It’s hard to point to one ring leader there are people working together and that’s what we are gong to be able to prove in federal court."

Walker says these charges should be officially filed sometime in the next few weeks.
