    That's brilliant - unfortunately some reasonable explanation will probably come along and ruin the hilarity of it all.

    I bet the phrase "extramarital sex" will be involved in the explanation....

    I wonder what was in the purse? Recordings?

    I wish I could find an article on it, but 10 or so years ago, the sitting mayor in a Rhode Island town was cited for possession of marijuana while riding in a limo.
    Smooth. :cool:

    Just to let you know, a white supremacist named Paul Fromm is running for mayor of Mississauga, Canada (a big city).

    He's probably hoping that Hazel will croak after the election, but before the swearing-in, and as the 2nd place guy he will take office.

    What a knob.

    I thought my Uncle Dave was the mayor of San Gabriel

    :eek: But apparently that was a couple of years ago and now he's the vice mayor. That is crazy that lady hung onto the SUV though she is probably part spiderman.

    Or maybe she had real valuables in her purse? (eg: baby pictures).

    Thank you for your interest in my political career.

    Remember my election slogan? "A vote for me, it a vote for corruption."

    Let the pay-offs commence. :D
