Ed Pawlowski, the Democrat mayor of Allentown, Pennsylvania is probably going to jail for a long time. He has been found guilty of multiple crimes after a trial that was largely ignored by the liberal media. The list of crimes is staggering.

Dem Mayor Faces Decades In Prison For Corruption
A Democratic Pennsylvania mayor faces decades in prison after he was convicted on nearly 50 charges of corruption in court Thursday.
Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski was found guilty on 47 of the 54 charges against him which included bribery, conspiracy, fraud, attempted extortion as well as lying to federal officials. Pawlowski also changed city contracts in order to raise money for his campaigns for Mayor, The Morning Call reported.
After the verdict was announced, Pawlowski reportedly cried in the courtroom, his wife collapsed in the hallway. A date has not yet been set for Pawlowski’s sentencing, but the Democratic mayor who has been in office for since 2006 will be free on bail until his court date.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony Wzorek blasted Pawlowski’s behavior after the hearing and said he will continue to search for corruption in an interview with The Morning Call.
One thing is obvious. This isn’t a good person who simply made a mistake. He deserves whatever prison time he gets.
