Marcus Hook, PA mayor James Schiliro, a Republican is having a bad day. Per the Philadelphia Inquirer,he faces charges of reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint, among other things. Why?
According to court records, on the night of Feb. 21 Schiliro sent a text message to the friend and later ordered an unidentified borough police officer to pick [the complaining witness] up in nearby Trainer and bring him to Schiliro's home in a police vehicle. While there, the young man said, he was given three glasses of wine . . .Like most Republicans caught in scandals, Schiliro is not resigning. Still, a Republican office holder getting caught with his pants down, with a dude, abusing his power, and getting reckless with guns. Happy Friday.
According to the unidentified victim, Schiliro asked if he could perform oral sex on the friend 20 to 30 times during the time he was in the house [I think this means asked 20 or 30 times, not offered 20 or 30 beejs] . . .
According to court records Schiliro had three handguns, which he waved about. At one point he placed a gun to his head and said "he didn't want to live anymore," according to the court documents.
Schiliro fired a gun into the floor. He also told then 20-year-old he was a hostage, according to the documents, and the young man told investigators he feared for his life.
Ballistics tests done by the investigators confirmed a bullet found in a wall in Schiliro's home did match one of the guns. Schiliro sold eight weapons shortly after the incident, according to court records.
