Judge Juan Sanchez has denied Allentown Mayor Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawlowski's motion to have his federal campaign's bank accounts released from a seizure. "This Court has not ordered forfeiture of Fleck’s property and therefore will not consider Petitioner’s alleged interest in the property," he ruled. That's because the bank accounts were seized administratively, and only after notice had been provided.
As of July 15, Fed Ed had just $1,589.39 left in what at one time was a $427,000 war chest.
But he has a state campaign fund,too. At the beginning of the year, he had about $83,000 in his state PAC to pay lawyers. He spent $80,000 from that fund to pay lawyers in 2015.
In the first half of this year, he reports having lent his federal fund $21,608 to pay lawyers, both for himself and his wife.
His October quarterly is due tomorrow.
