Seems like only yesterday that she was among the la-de-das sitting on their asses inside some tent outside Allentown Symphony Hall to celebrate "The Miracle that is Allentown." Then the shitstorm over pay-to-play broke and turned that miracle into Nightmare on Hamilton Street. Three current or former Allentown officials have already pleaded guilty. Mota, who received a generous campaign contribution after switching her vote in the trash-to-energy deal, suddenly got religion. She was among those who called on Pawlowski to resign, and last week, was among the five Council members who refused to confirm an unqualified bullshit artist to head the Department of Community and Economic Development.
After the meeting, Allentown Mayor Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawloski slipped out a side door and made his way to the garage where he was parked. So did Mota. As they made their way to their cars, Fed Ed began screaming at and berating Mota, the sole woman to stand against him. "I can't believe what you just did to me," he yelled loudly, as she was more or less cornered and unable to escape his abusive verbal tirade.
What a man!
During the meeting itself (I watched the video), Fed Ed's conduct was arrogant and demeaning. He repeatedly interrupted Council members, accused them of playing politics and used an Alan Jennings puppet, Dan Bosket, to play the race card.
