Pawlowski Pre-trial Musings
Today Mayor Pawlowski's long awaited trial actually begins. As I scanned the defense witness list I wondered what would motivate most of these people, besides the subpoena, to cooperate on Ed's behalf. Then it occurred to me that it was an opportunity to publicity disavow any knowledge of any wrongdoing. Now there are a few of these people who consider themselves friends of Ed, and would testify for Ed's sake. Alan Jennings would be among that group, but I believe most on the list are on the public disavow side. I suspect that at least one person, who was propelled into the public money income stream by Ed, wants to show that she can be counted on to be discreet.
On a city issue facebook site, a reader wondered why people complaining about Pawlowski re-elected him? Actually, most people aware enough to participate on such a site, didn't directly vote for him. However, many did write-in the name of a third candidate, which resulted in Pawlowski's victory.
In my previous post I discussed the psychology of Pawlowski's facebook posts. I would think such insertions by him violate the intent of the court order for him not to discuss the case. Convicted or not, prison assigned or not, a good therapist might be in order.
