ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski's attorney says secret recordings show the mayor is innocent and that prosecutors shouldn't be allowed to keep the recordings from the jury.
In a reply to a motion by the feds, Jack McMahon said prosecutors want to use parts of the secret recordings about an alleged pay-to-play scheme, but not the parts that clearly show Pawlowski is innocent.
He says there are tapes that show the mayor's mindset in resisting suggested wrong-doing, but McMahon says the feds want to block that evidence because it's damaging to their case.
