It’s getting a little steamy in Allentown, Pa., where the FBI has opened a city hall investigation.
Now the president of the Leigh Valley Building Trades Council has been charged with attacking a man he believes alerted the FBI to corruption in Allentown, the Morning Call reports.
James Edward Reilley, 57, was charged with terroristic threats, simple assault, aggravated assault and disorderly conduct following the alleged incident on Sept. 1.
Reilley shut down his political consulting firm on July 2, the day when FBI agents raided Allentown City Hall in search of contracts and other related documents.
The man he allegedly attacked was Brendan Hansbury, the brother-in-law of Mike Fleck, who had served as campaign manager to Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski.
