Philadelphia - It was a somber and sad Mayor John Street yesterday who faced the bright lights, flashing bulbs and hot questions of reporters in the wake of his older brother's federal indictment on charges of fraud, bribery and filing false tax returns.

Milton Street traded on his last name to obtain lucrative city contracts and failed to pay taxes on more than $2 million in income, federal authorities charged yesterday. They additionally allege Milton Street conspired with John H. Velardi, facilities director for Philadelphia Airport Services, a business set up in 2001 specifically to bid on airport maintenance contracts, and Matthias Schwabe, PAS facilities manager to defraud PAS and at least two other businesses.
