Time and again we are learning just how corrupt the Democratic Party is. If they aren’t covering up bribery, corruption, and illegal scheming, they are buddying-around with sexual predators.
Never do we see them owning up to their crimes. Never do we see them admitting fault and changing their ways. They even have the audacity to continue running for public office, expecting the American people to look the other way.
That’s just what indicted democrat, Ed Pawlowski, is trying to do. The only problem? The FBI’s out to get him.
From Town Hall:
Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, a Democrat, beat Republican real estate developer Nat Hyman. With 95 percent of precincts reporting, Pawlowski had about 50 percent of the vote and Hyman 43 percent.
Pawlowski denied accusations that he accepted more than $150,000 in campaign contributions in exchange for city contracts, asking voters in the heavily Democratic city to return him to an office he’s held since 2006. Hyman said he ran “to try and pull Allentown out from under the cloud of scandal…”
It was during unsuccessful runs for governor in 2013 and the U.S. Senate in 2015 that prosecutors say he abused the power of his office, making it clear to vendors that he expected campaign contributions in return for contracts.
Following a two-year investigation of City Hall, prosecutors in July charged him with 56 counts, including bribery, conspiracy, fraud, extortion and lying to the FBI.
Pawlowski pleaded not guilty and resisted calls to step down, insisting: “I know I’m innocent. I know I did nothing wrong.” His lawyer called the charges “outrageous.” A trial is scheduled for January.
It’s shocking to think that a man indicted for corruption can run for mayor. It’s even more shocking that brain-dead liberals would even vote for him. It tells you how terrible things can get in a democratic-controlled region of America. It doesn’t matter what you do, the liberals will support you.
Hey, they nominated a crook for President, so this should be no surprise.
But the joke’s on them. The man will be taken to court next year, where he’ll have to face the charges and evidence against him. What will the mayor say, if and when he’s convicted? Was it worth dragging his city into the mire, for one more term?
If he is convicted and sent to jail, another democrat will take his place. It’s up to conservatives to start fighting harder, to eject this kind of scum from our cities. Until they lose their seats of power, corruption like this will continue.
