"If those funds were not used properly, I am upset." J.B.I doubt that J.B. is upset enough to have lost any sleep this weekend. He was not accused of any wrongdoing. In our era of politics, spending $20 thousand on a party for Eddy doesn't seem improper. In our era of political correctness, any left over money was supposed to go to the poor people, under Alan Jennings' umbrella organization; Cake Crumbs For The Poor. Why wouldn't someone contribute $15k for Mayor Ed, after all, we're having a $Billion Dollar Revitalization, which J.B.will own.
What really was the big deal about Mayor For Life's third election victory? Mayor for life, a molovinsky on allentown coined phrase, is now being replaced by Pawlowski-Gate, copyright pending. In the real world, which isn't funded by diverted taxdollars going to private owners, $20,000 would pay for a lot of baby formula and diapers. In the last few years, Allentown, in it's jubilation about the renaissance, has had too much money and not enough values or ethics.
