Signe Wilkinson ticks off mayoral candidate

Philadelphia Daily News editorial cartoonist Signe Wilkinson has created a stir with supporters of mayoral candidate Chaka Fatta with a recent cartoon. The cartoon is described as:

The cartoon satirized Fattah’s criticism of rival Michael Nutter’s “stop, question and frisk” anti-crime proposal, by showing Fattah speaking to two young children whose bodies have large bullet holes in them. In the cartoon, Fattah says, “But I will protect you from being stopped and frisked.”

The cartoon has rallied at least 40 people to protest in front of the Daily News building chanting, “Shame on you, Daily News!”
