FOP president Robert Swartzwelder, is calling for disciplinary action to be taken against Pittsburgh Chief of Police Cameron McLay for violating municipal code when speaking at Democratic National Convention on Tuesday while in uniform. "Anyone who believes the DNC isn't a political campaign…to endorse a candidate is an idiot" said Swartzwelder. McLay disputes he was campaigning but instead was speaking about meaningful police reform efforts such as here in Pittsburgh.
