The Delaware County DA's office has announced that James Schiliro, the mayor of Marcus Hook, has been arrested.
He is facing multiple criminal charges, including reckless endangerment. Schiliro surrendered to police early Thursday morning.
Earlier this week, the Delco Times reported that the borough council and the Republican Party asked Schiliro to resign following a drunken encounter with a 20-year-old man, which resulted in the discharge of a firearm.
According to court documents, the mayor is accused of having a police officer pick up a 20-year-old friend in a police cruiser and bring him to his home. Inside, the mayor allegedly served the minor alcohol and asked for sexual favors.
When the man refused, the mayor allegedly told him he was a hostage and fired his gun inside of the home, court documents said. . . .
Yet, of course, the media accounts leave out the fact that Schiliro is a member of “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.” If it was a conservative who engaged in an affair, the media would be all over it because it would show hypocrisy. How come the same doesn't apply to liberals?
