She agreed to an orgy before. I don't understand why this time she got angry. Maybe she wanted to be first on top this time. Any way you look at this case it's sick and all three are sick. Hooray for us to have re elected him as commissioner. And he was re elected after this incident took place. I guess that makes everyone that voted for Vaughn sick too. We are like gawkers at an accident. Everyone wants to see what happened no matter how immoral.

Who cares if they were having 3-somes, does it really matter? What matters is that a woman was assaulted.

How did the voters of this city become so ignorant as to elect him in the first place? Regardless of his thing for three way action, he seems like a pig all around.

The 3 some is irrelevant- the woman entered his home willingly and then proceeded to throw a jealous tantrum causing injury to Vaughn and Mitchell. She even used a weapon(the vase). If some obnoxious b**ch came into my house and assaulted my friend, I would definitely try to remove that person from my house- you have the right to defend yourself and your property. Cross didn't want to press charges at first because she knew she f'd up. She is the person who should be prosecuted, not Vaughn. I don't buy into this "helpless victim" crap and I hope the jury doesn't either.

This creep being a city official is just another shining example of voter apathy and lack of citizen involvement. His arrest for this incident reinforces the fact that voters need to take a closer look at who they choose to represent them. He acted like a drunken class clown at meetings, was never prepared and jived his way through discussions. The public needs to get more involved in city politics and choose candidates who stand for law and order, as well as the best interest of our community/neighborhoods.
