Spring break - Mayors Gone Wild edition.

Today we have a couple stories of mayors being arrested on different ends of the country.

Jersey City, New Jersey:
Residents of Jersey City got an unusual glimpse of their mayor-to-be in 2004 when a teen snapped a blurry photo seeming to show then-candidate Jerramiah T. Healy passed out naked on his front stoop. The latest story about Healy resonating in the state's second-largest city involves him being pepper-sprayed and arrested by police last weekend outside his sister's Jersey Shore bar.

San Jose, California:
Mayor Ron Gonzales rejected calls to step down after he was booked on fraud, bribery and conspiracy charges following a grand jury probe into a secretly negotiated garbage contract. Gonzales, 55, was released on a $50,000 bond after being indicted on six counts Thursday for allegedly brokering a backroom deal that cost taxpayers more than $11 million.

Predictably, the political affiliation of the miscreants was not considered newsworthy. The article on the Jersey City mayor never mentioned he was a Democrat and in the San Jose story that information was buried in the 15th paragraph.

Bill, The stories about the Mayors while disturbing by it's self. Doesn't it really say more about us because there are IDIOTS like this all across the nation. Elected officials and everyday citizens,why do we choose to let these fools leave the ranks of the everyday to the position of representation or leadership

Bob, unfortunately we sometimes don't find out in time that they are idiots.

Luckily most afflicted with such problems are likely to expose themselves (like the Jersey City guy) eventually.
