A Democratic mayor from Pennsylvania has resigned nearly a month after he was arrested for allegedly soliciting a woman for sex — a woman who turned out to be a police informant.

Bloomsburg Mayor Eric Bower, 36, initially claimed the accusations were made up because of his “political position.”

He was arrested on April 20 after investigators said he showed up at a Hampton Inn with condoms and $200 in cash. According to the attorney general’s office, the woman, whom Bower solicited for sex that day, was “a Pennsylvania State Police confidential informant.”

Police said Bower met with the informant on several different occasions, with the most recent meetup resulting in his arrest.

“Bower negotiated a fee for sex with the informant and arrived at the location with cash and condoms, where he was taken into custody by police,” the attorney general’s office said in a statement.

How the mighty falls based upon actual criminal activity, and not baseless accusations. This is how an investigation of criminal activity is done properly. Using actual evidence of wrongdoing and the breaking of actual laws and crimes. I wonder how deep this one goes in the political space in Bloomberg, PA.

Too bad for the citizens of this place that voted for this corrupt mayor. What was the line I have heard for over a year now, "where there is smoke, there's fire.........somewhere". I wonder if there is a real that fire burns there and if this bust is just the smoke.

I usually agree with you fully
But , in this case non-news
Should read human instead of Democrat.
I had a friend at 16 years old that got arrested for the exact same conditions

I usually do not take a clear political side so blatantly. However, it seems to me that these type of sexual crimes are being perpetrated by the Democratic party more as of late. All the while that same party is spending MY tax money on investigations involving a porn star and Trump before he was even the president. It is such hypocrisy, that I could not hold back any longer.

It makes it clear IMO that those making these type of claims are the ones trying to hide their own indiscretions of the same type. Projection at it's finest.

In the case you are referring, the money is not for the sex, but for the silence. It's a contractual agreement. I don't advocate that approach, but, it is not illegal. Just like buying dinner, drinks, etc....to get sex is not illegal either, is it?

Direct $$ in exchange for sex, however, is illegal.

I think people should be able to sleep with who they want and if there is cash involved then it is between two consenting adults. I wouldn’t want to live like that, but the Government has no business in the sex life and consensual transactions of their citizens.

Then the voters should also be bearing some of the burden here for electing this guy. Partisan politics results in people making poor decisions just to tow the party line. That is what these parties want, mindless sheepy voters. Independent thought is discouraged at every turn.

Ahhh... yes. Did you read the article? Directly exchanging $$ for sex is illegal.

I'm putting that on my business cards.

**BACK TO THE TOPIC**


Shouldn't the amount of only $200 USD have been a tip off that this person was suspicious? One would think that a Mayor would be putting a couple grand forward for their escorts, but whatever.

Imagine a world where the headline was simply "Pennsylvania Mayor Resigns After Soliciting Sex".

When I ran for mayor of my home town some twenty odd years ago, there was no party affiliation on the ballot.

But y'all have fun making stink eye comments at each other needlessly.

We have advertising and some celebrities selling sex pretty much 24/7. On the reverse we are outing people for having consensual sex. What in the world????? If no one was hurt in the transaction, then it is private.

But, there is this thing known as the LAW that disagrees with you. If you and others feel so strongly about this, then start a movement to repeal that law. But until it is repealed, then it is the law. And exchanging $$ directly for sex is a crime.
