Msg to Trump: Don't do it!
President Trump is getting an earful for re-nominating a radical lesbian activist to a post on a federal commission who has clearly demonstrated her animosity toward individuals' religious beliefs.
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (March 8, 2018) — A Pennsylvania mayor announced his resignation Thursday a week after jurors convicted him on charges that he traded city contracts for campaign cash.
Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski said he will step down at 5 p.m. Friday from the job he's held a dozen years.
The 52-year-old Democrat has been under intense pressure to resign since jurors convicted him last week of 47 counts. But he clung to office, showing up at City Hall, tweeting about snow preparations and economic development, and asking supporters to mount a letter-writing campaign to try to persuade the judge to impose a lenient sentence.
Prosecutors say Pawlowski strong-armed city vendors to contribute to his failed campaigns for governor and U.S. Senate, orchestrating a scheme to rig city contracts for legal, engineering, technology and construction work. He took the witness stand and denied wrongdoing, but a jury convicted him of all but seven counts, including bribery, attempted extortion, and lying to the FBI.
Pawlowski, who remains free pending sentencing, faces years in prison.
Earlier this week, the Democrat mayor of Nashville, Megan Barry, resigned just weeks after confessing to an adulterous affair with a former body guard. On Tuesday, she pleaded quilty to felony theft of property over $10,000.
