The chairman of a Philadelphia commission investigating the MOVE battle confirmed the accuracy of the leaked draft report that harshly criticized city officials. Meanwhile, Mayor W. Wilson Goode said he will still run for reelection next year despite a finding in the report that he "abdicated his authority" when 11 MOVE members died and 61 houses were destroyed by fire last May 13 in a violent confrontation with police. "We do not expect the final version of these drafts to differ substantially from what has already been published," said William Brown III, head of the Special Investigation Commission.
