(Philly.com) – Renee Chenault-Fattah, wife of the indicted Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.), was not charged by federal authorities Wednesday – but the longtime NBC10 anchor did not escape the U.S. attorney’s charging document.

Labeled as “Person E” throughout the 85-page indictment, Chenault-Fattah, one of the station’s most visible personalities and anchor of the 4 and 6 p.m. broadcasts, is portrayed as a participant in a scheme to falsely report the sale of her 1989 Porsche Carrera convertible to a lobbyist for $18,000.

The Fattahs used the cash to help buy a $425,000 vacation house in the Poconos, the indictment says, but Chenault-Fattah kept the Porsche – and even renewed its registration and took it to an auto shop months after signing the title over to the lobbyist, Herbert Vederman.

Chenault-Fattah, 57, could not be reached for comment Wednesday. A spokeswoman for NBC10, Shawn Feddeman, said the station had no comment. Anchor Jim Rosenfield, speaking during Wednesday’s 4 p.m. newscast, said Chenault-Fattah “is now on leave.”
