Charlie Thiehl, Fed Ed Lite
I consider him a Fed Ed Lite. A few weeks ago, he ran a push poll telling his callers that he is the only honest candidate for Mayor. Now he's doing something even more sleazy. Through an intermediary, he has approached several Mayoral candidates, offering them a job in his administration if they back out. I have confirmed this with the intermediary.
This is political logrolling and is completely legal. It is also completely sleazy. It solidifies the impression that government is for sale,which is the whole point of a federal pay-to-play investigation.
The latest word on that is that there will be two indictments this week, and that one will have Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawlowski's name on it. Though this is a rumor, it makes sense that if the the feds would charge, they would do so before the primary election.
