While the people of Allentown, Pennsylvania are living the words of the Billy Joel song of the same name, singing “Well, we’re living here in Allentown and they’re closing all the factories down. Out in Bethlehem, they’re killing time, filling out forms, standing in line…” it seems Mayor Ed Pawlowski had different ideas for the citizens of the city that elected him to serve as mayor for 4 separate terms. Pawlowski was convicted on nearly all of the charges in his federal pay-to-play trial this week. As a result, he must now resign from office.

Republican Donald Trump's victory in Wisconsin was reaffirmed Monday following a recount that showed him defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes. Wisconsin finalized its recount on the same day that a federal judge issued a stinging rejection of a Green Party-backed request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania's presidential election and scan some counties' election systems for signs of hacking.
