WMDT spoke to McGuiness shortly after the ruling and said that the jury received a "biased, cherry-picked account of the truth."

Governor John Carney released a statement in response to pressure from the senate to remove McGuiness from office. He explained that “the Governor has no power to act until after the entry of a judgment of conviction by the Superior Court.

Two weeks after the verdict, Delaware Democratic House Caucus wrote Governor John Carney. The letter stated, “The crimes the State Auditor has been found guilty of meet the Constitutional criteria of ‘misbehavior in office,’ and that as a result, you are obligated to remove her from office upon entry of a judgment of conviction by the Superior Court.” Senate voted 13-7 to hold a removal hearing for McGuiness.

Since then, Speaker of the House Pete Schwartzkopf voiced support for McGuiness. He called the senate’s actions nothing more than “political theater.” Senate cannot move forward with the removal hearing without Schwartzkopf’s approval.

Schwartzkopf argued that, even if a hearing was held and the senate voted to remove McGuiness, the ruling would only be a vote “to ultimately ask the governor to remove the state auditor from office – a request he’s not required to fulfill, and a request he’s indicated that he wouldn’t carry out at this time anyway.”

McGuiness has made it clear that she will “absolutely not” be resigning.

This week, WRDE-LD interviewed McGuiness about her thoughts on the guilty ruling. The auditor insists that she is blameless. “I profess my innocence maybe other folks should do the same.”

In response to the payment structuring charge, she stated, “I did work with the owner in 2016 but we are not friends.” McGuiness continued, “He did not do anything for me since then. He is very talented with communications and policy they do not just work on campaigns.”

McGuiness is running for re-election in September’s primary against candidate Lydia York.

Police ID Worcester State Hoops Star, Father As Pedestrian Killed on I-290, GoFundMe Created

Worcester police said identified the man who died in a hit-and-run crash along I-290 late Saturday night, Aug. 13, as a former star basketball star and father of a 4-year-old boy. 

Jamal Mustapha, 27, was a standout player on the court at Doherty High School, where he graduated in 2013, reports said. Nicknamed Lucky Lefty, Mustapha played at UMass-Dartmouth for a season before he transferred to Worcester State University, where he played two seasons. His son Kyrie was born around this time. 

Mustapha was killed at about 11:30 p.m. as he walked near exit 20 on 290. State troopers believe a tractor-trailer hit him first and kept driving. Several other vehicles also ran over him, but they likely didn't realize what they had hit, police said. No one stopped. Officers are still searching for the driver who hit him first. 

His family created a GoFundMe page to help pay for his funeral and to donate money that will go to his son Kyrie's future. So far, the fundraiser has generated nearly $10,000 of its $15,000 goal. 

"Jamal dedicated his time, energy, and effort to become the best version of himself for those around him," the GoFundMe reads. "Striving to learn how to better himself for his family and Kyrie’s future. Jamal’s mind was always on how to make Ky’s future better. Jamal had a mindset like none other. He possessed something that people wanted to be around."

His friend and former Aaron Anniballi posted a eulogy for Mustapha on Facebook. 

"I love your determination to be great," he wrote. "... You taught me a ton boy. I could write a book about you G!! You were special!! Truly special!! Had to be the reason God took you from us so soon. I will make sure your name lives on forever."
