Marcus Hook Mayor arrested, seeking re-election Excerpts:....... As the clock approached midnight on Feb. 21, a drunken Schiliro embarked on an ill-advised mission to redefine the term "public servant" in his blue-collar refinery town, according to a police report. Schiliro, 38, allegedly turned the Marcus Hook Police Department into a private escort agency, ordering a cop on the late-night shift to bring a 20-year-old man to his house in a marked police vehicle. He gave the man wine, then allegedly offered 20 to 30 times to perform oral sex on him, according to the report. When the man repeatedly refused, Schiliro, who as mayor controls the police department, started to pull out handguns, informed the man that he was "going to be a hostage," fired a 9 mm bullet into the wall and said that he'd ordered police to stay away from the house, the report states. "The mayor, I believe, has indicated to the press that he has some issues," said Delaware County District Attorney John Whelan. Schiliro was charged Thursday with unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, false imprisonment, official oppression and furnishing alcohol to a minor. Whelan described the ordeal as three hours of "intimidation, oppression and coercion." ....... Schiliro has known the victim, who has no contact with his biological father, for the past eight years and had helped him with work and school, the police report states. Whelan said there is no evidence of prior sexual solicitation or improper contact. "The young man describes the mayor as a father figure to him, which is particularly disturbing considering the course of conduct over this particular evening," Whelan said. Schiliro - a burly ex-boilermaker who arrived at district court Thursday morning with a bottle of orange juice in his hand and a fat cigar in his mouth - said that he intends to fight the charges. His attorney, Michael Malloy, said Schiliro sold his guns and began treatment for alcoholism immediately after the booze-fueled escapade. He has a 13-year-old daughter, who was home during the incident. Malloy said Schiliro admits to some of what occurred, but insists that he never asked the man if he could perform sex acts on him. ........ Despite his legal troubles, Schiliro is not only refusing to relinquish his position, but also seeking re-election in the May mayoral primary against Council President Gene Taylor. ....... Marcus Hook Mayor arrested, seeking re-election - Philly.com ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Unreal – One of Bloomberg’s ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ Arrested For Trying to Force Man to Have Sex With Him … at Gunpoint On April 3, 2013, in Gun Control, by Rus One of the gun-grabbing members of Michael Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, recently found himself trying to lure a man into a sexual encounter through the liberal use of alcohol. When the charm and alcohol didn’t do the trick, James ‘Jay’ Schiliro (R) decided to go a different route – firing a handgun into a wall in an attempt at intimidation. The mayor who, as the title suggests, is against illegal guns, was forced to hand over his firearm collection, and has been charged with several crimes. Via the Inquisitr: A member of the Michael Bloomberg-sponsored gun control organization “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” has been arrested and charged in connection with a handgun incident at his home. James Schiliro, a.k.a. Jay Schiliro, the mayor of Marcus Hook, a small town in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, faces charges of official oppression, reckless endangerment, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, and furnishing a minor with alcohol. He surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning, and his attorney declared that “we intend to fight these charges.” Schiliro, 38, allegedly ordered a local police officer to bring a 20-year-old male friend to his home, where the mayor plied him with alcohol, and made sexual advances which the man refused. Schiliro allegedly brandished several handguns and fired one of them into the floor in an apparent attempt to intimidate the young man, who reportedly was in fear of his life. The mayor was freed on $50,000 bail and told to stay away from the alleged victim and give up his stash of firearms. And an article in the Daily Local News indicates the mayor tried to dump his firearm collection, selling eight weapons shortly after the incident. According to the Examiner, Schiliro was one of 600 mayors who recently signed a letter asking the U.S. Senate to enact tougher gun laws.
