The above screen grab is a recent example of Pawlowski support taken from an Allentown facebook group. I have redacted the author's name, because this post is about Pawlowski supporters in general, regardless of their particular motivation.
Are most Pawlowski supporters uninformed, while others even contrary and disingenuous? While I also have previously referred to many as unethical, in truth why would I care about which conditions afflict this group? The problem unfortunately is that they might sooner than later determine Allentown's leadership. Although it took essentially a three way race to re-elect Pawlowski this time, clearly a third of the voters went with him, despite the indictment.
From facebook and other social media, we learn that most of his supporters are both low information and low expectation types. Pawlowski himself keeps posting any link that suggests he might be less than completely guilty. Which choir he is attempting to preach to continues to baffle me.
Truth be told I'm not optimistic about Allentown's political future. Within the last decade a perfect storm of political opportunism and indifference has apparently drowned the city.
