It's sad when the public has to knows what goes on in the bedroom. If I was the judge, I would throw the case out. I don't think the commissioner broke any laws. When you involved yourself in this kind of behavior, the results are not good. He should step down as commissioner.

3 quick points - 1, he is a COUNTY, not city, official - 2, he partly won re-election because the only person who ran against him didn't even campaign- 3, Mr Vaughn, for quite a few years, has driven up to the County Honor Camp in Gowen and helped convicts about to be released find better choices in life. I have heard him speak there, he does this freely, and I commend him for that

Does this guy seem to be gloating and bragging? No class whatsoever. He just seems like the type of pig who would drag a woman through the mud to boast his faltering sense of manliness.

Thank goodness the tryst was unsuccessful, have you seen these people??? The headline would've read: "County commissioner involved in menage a trois; one missing, presumed dead".

Vaughn talked to one of the women at his brothers wake about having a 3-way. That had to be one great pick up line. Sounds like he just wanted to get his freak on.
