Mayor Drops Race After Arrest for Kidnapping

Marcus Hook, PA Mayor Jay Schiliro (R) has dropped his bid for reelection "after he was arrested on charges he abused his position to imprison a 20-year-old man during a drunken, gun-wielding encounter at his home," the Delaware County Daily Times reports.

"Authorities allege that late on the evening of Feb. 21, Schiliro contacted the young man by text message and had a police officer deliver him to his borough home. There... the mayor allegedly gave the young man alcohol and produced three firearms, one of which was fired into papers inside the house. During the encounter, the mayor repeatedly asked the young man if he could give him oral sex."
