Ray Lahoud, a prominent immigration attorney and one of the Lehigh Valley's brightest lights, thinks it's time for the Democratic Party to put the heat on Fed Ed.
As a lifetime, young Lehigh Valley Democrat, I feel it is time that the local county parties take a stand here. The local party chairpersons must call for a party meeting, where a resolution demanding FedEd's resignation may be considered and put to a vote. The Lehigh Valley Democratic Party cannot sit silent as this corruption casts a shadow of shame on the entire party.In the meantime, Fed Ed is scheduled to give a "State of the City" address on Friday, January 29, 11:30 am at Allentown's Renaissance Hotel. A group of us is going.

Every week, it seems, one of his cronies is indicted, only to enter guilty pleas to those indictments days later. I understand that FedEd has not been charged. And, yes, if FedEd is charged, I understand that he is innocent until proven guilty. But, come on Democrats! Why is everyone sitting silent? You do not have to wait for a trial to stand up to him and tell him that he is destroying the party--that he is no longer an effective leader within the party. You do not have to wait to tell him that he is a detriment to the party. Where is the party leadership at the county and the state levels? What is everyone afraid of? What a joke.

By the way - he is "censoring" his Facebook Page. I commented on his posting and he deleted it. What a loser. The citizens of Allentown are not paying him to sit on Facebook all day. If he is going to remain mayor until he is dragged out of city hall by either the Feds or the citizens of Allentown, the least he could do is try to get some city work done.
