Philly Commissioner Lost Notary License For Violating the Law


City Commissioners Chairwoman Lisa Marie Deeley, who is facing election in the May primary, quietly lost her notary license last year for failing to check the identification of a woman whose signature she notarized.

In doing so, Deeley approved documents that fraudulently deprived a woman of her right to her husband’s death benefits. The husband was an acquaintance of Deeley’s and in the midst of a contentious divorce.

Asked about the lifetime loss of her license, Deeley initially denied that she had been sanctioned by the state.

“I didn’t do anything wrong. I just surrendered my notary,” she said last week. “My notary was not relinquished because of any disciplinary action.”
