Where Is Fed Ed's Year End Senate Report?

Last week, I told you that Allentown Mayor Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawlowski has used $80,000 of his state campaign funds to pay lawyers he's hired in a federal political corruption investigation that clearly has targeted him. He's got about $83,000 left. But what about his federal campaign? His federal PAC reported that he still had about $100,000 at the end of October. Is it still there? Or has he been using that kitty to pay off lawyers, too?

Fed Ed's Year-End report was due on January 31. But his is the sole report that has yet to appear on the FEC webpage among  the five candidates seeking the U..S, Senate seat. Reports are available online for Joe Sestak, Pat Toomey, Katie McGinty and John Fetterman. But not Fed Ed. He has always filed his report at the last minute, knowing it will take the FEC some time to get it posted.

Over the weekend, I contacted his campaign treasurer Lisa Pawlowski, who happens to be his wife. I told her this is just another sign of her husband's lack of transparency, and suggested that if she wants to change that image, she could forward a copy of the report to me and I would post it for one and all.

This is her response.

"I submitted our year end report during a snowstorm, post dated on January 31st. The Senate doesn't accept electronic filing yet. So I sent them a hard copy, and when they scan it, they have the respons[ibility] of posting it."

In other words, she refuses to provide a copy because she and her husband prefer keeping the public in the dark as long as possible. This is yet another Moody Bible grad who appears to be playing fast and loose with the truth, just like her hubbie. There was no snowstorm on January 31, unless it was just confined to her house. Also, January 31 was a Sunday. Though it's possible to send out certified mail on a Sunday, it's not easy.

Fed Ed's Senate report should be on the FEC site soon, perhaps as early as today. If you see it, give a holler.

Bernie is not into women and she has a new career in showbiz starring in a new series: orange is the new Allentown.

So the best she could manage, it snowed. Does the medical term " BAT SHIT CRAZY" enter into the equation?

WHAT is she talking about???? Snowstorm? Certified mail on a Sunday??? Let's face it - her husband is in too much hot water to get the details wrong on things like this. How on earth is she capable of managing the financial reports of anything with this kind of lack of attention to detail??

I've never had a problem with Mrs. Pawlowski, but in the quote she provided you, she either thinks this blog's readers are stupid, or she herself is stupid. It's one or the other.

What if any are the ramifications for not filing this report?

I have no love for the Palowski's but she didn't say she did that there was a snowstorm on the 31st. She said she submitted it during the snowstorm and POSTDATED it for January 31st. That is how I interpret her response, anyway.

She should hire schlossberg, he knows how to file campaign expenses down to a .75 charge at Staples, cheap POS!

Alright, 9:18. I'll extend the benefit of the doubt. Still, she could have just sent it to Bernie.

It's fair to suggest that these people feel no need to play by the rules.

The problem with your interpretation is that, for obvious reasons, the post office has a policy against pre-dated or post-dated mail. I believe my interpretation is accurate. The meant to state that she sent the mail out during a January 31 snowstorm that never occurred.

It's already been established that the Pawlowskis have difficulty estimating the timing and severity of snowstorms.
Cut them a break.

Why didnt you tell Lisa to *get the LEAD out*..

I'd insert a snicker here but the entire situation hasn't a shred of humor in it.

Allentown, Lehigh County and Pennsylvania politicians feel no need to play by the rules. It seems that breaking the rules is the new rule and if you don't play by that rule you will never "win". This is not democracy.

Citizens are still making excuses for the Mayor not calling a snow emergency. Citizens are still trying to downplay they fact that Allentown's children are being poisoned by SOMETHING in Allentown, water or paint, the lead is coming from somewhere.

It's all no big deal.

As long as parties exsist we will have this absolute nonsense. Why are you a xxxxxxxxx. My father was a xxxxxxxx. My team vs. Your team. Vote them out, no then their team will get in. What we get are the groups of AssClowns that inhabit every level of mismanagement .They are constantly working to solve problems, either real or imagined,, of their own making. The Governor is working on next years state budget without passing this years budget. We have a gathering of fools and lawyers . In Harrisburg 3000+ people are being paid to carry the ashtrays for these fools. Will it ever stop; I doubt it!!

once again, elected politicians have no fear of consequences. this is a major problem. they do not fear consequences bc they rely of a very large group of zero liability voters, to maintain their power and authority.
