Eight Little Mayors, Sitting in Jail

Tryin' to get to Heaven by the end of their bail....

By the latest count.

Passaic, NJ Mayor Samuel Rivera
Frank Melton, of Jackson MS
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick
Birmingham, Al Mayor Larry Langford
Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon
Jeremiah Healey of Jersey City
Racine, WI Mayor Gary Becker

Are joined in their fine club of indicted and/or convicted MAIG mayors by Bayonne, NJ Mayor Joseph Doria whose house was raided today in conjunction w/ numerous corruption arrests. Included in this was the Deputy Mayor of Jersey City, Leona Beldini, whose boss, Jerramiah Healy is a MAIG member.

I missed this one. Thanks to SIH for the heads up.

Actually, that "fine club of indicted and/or convicted" didn't officially grow today. He was not even arrested, it only appears that his house was raided. Most of the arrests already happened today, so it's a wait and see situation. Given that it's Jersey, he may well end up on the list at some point. Just not yet if your formal definition is indictment or conviction.

I really only correct the record because if this plays out like other Jersey corruption stories, you can grab the popcorn and enjoy the rest of the show.

Frank Melton passed away before his
trail and therefore was found not guilty of all charges.

I see Langford was convicted on all 60 counts, and could get a life sentence.

I also see that he's still proudly listed as a MAIG member. Quite an impressive group, eh?

Poor ol' Kwame's troubles just keep getting worse and worse.

Mayor Bloomberg sure knows how to pick friends, doesn't he?
