Government rests in Allentown mayor trial

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - It's official. The government rests in the Allentown trial of Mayor Ed Pawlowski. 

The jury has been sent home for the day.

Prosecutors have been continuing their federal bribery and conspiracy case against Pawlowski, who’s accused of trading favors and city contracts in exchange for campaign donations. His co-defendant, attorney Scott Allinson, also stands accused of trying to funnel some of that work toward his firm, Norris McLaughlin.

After three weeks of a host of secret recordings and witnesses that include city employees, former employees and a campaign aide that was close to the mayor, the prosecution has rested.
