Republican Mayor of Marcus Hook James “Jay” Schiliro has dropped his reelection campaign after his arrest on charges of abusing his postion to (wait for it) imprison a 20 year-old man during a drunken, gun-wielding encounter at his home at which point he repeatedly asked for oral sex. Yes, don’t we all ‘ask’ for sex with a gun?
But, the slave master Mayor says he will finish his term.
Authorities allege that late on the evening of Feb. 21, [Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania Mayor James] Schiliro contacted the young man by text message and had a Marcus Hook police officer deliver him to his borough home. There, with Schiliro’s 13-year-old daughter sleeping upstairs, the mayor allegedly gave the young man alcohol and produced three firearms, one of which was fired into papers inside the house.
During the encounter, the mayor repeatedly asked the young man if he could give him oral sex, according to court documents. Schiliro is not charged with any sex-related offenses.
Daily Times reports, “Before his arrest, Schiliro said he was planning to run for re-election and hoped voters would forgive his behavior. The embattled mayor blamed the incident on a problem with alcohol and said he is seeking treatment.”
Charges include: official oppression, recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment and providing alcohol to a minor, all misdemeanor offenses. He is free on $50,000 unsecured bail, with conditions prohibiting firearms possession and contact with the young man.
The encounter lasted 4 hours.
Who the *$%# are these people that wanted Mayor Marquis de SadeSchiliro to stay in office?
While caucus meetings are not typically well-attended, Manerchia said there was a standing-room-only crowd, with attendance split between those in support of the mayor staying on and those in favor of his immediate resignation.
“I’d say it was 50-50,” Manerchia said.
