On June 29, Attorney Scott Allinson was sentenced to 27 months for his role in Allentown's pay-to-play scandal. He was whisked off as his attorneys protested that the court should at least wait until a minimum security facility was available There were fears that he would spend the next few months at a federal detention center in Philly, not the most pleasant of accommodations. According to Bureau of Prison records, that's where he is. But I have heard that he may instead be a guest at Lehigh County's jail.
What impact did all this have on former Allentown Mayor Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawlowski? Apparently, none. That night, Allentown was featuring the Black Panther at Stevens Park. Fed Ed was there, handing out Popsicles, pretending he is still he Mayor.
