I think it was more that if Dent's image was "tarnished" a number of things would happen including him being dis-barred (thus meaning he couldn't prosecute for the RICO case), someone else would step-up as DA and that person may be better influenced by the crime in the city to get the RICO case lost/thrown out.

They needed Dent because he was a clean, good, lawyer who wanted to solve the city's problems and they may not get that with another DA. His image being tarnished by his involvement in crime would really mess things up in prosecuting the criminals.

So I saw it as being less about his image and just more about the politics and practicality of the whole legal system.
