I can't believe it. The similarities to the Police Drama "The Shield" are too many to ignore. Same thing goes on there. The brass manipulates the system to the upper players benefit. This time they got called on the carpet. The money involved would really hurt the town and seems extreme to punish the town over decisions made by a few. Perhaps someone needs to hold them accountable instead.

If you look further into it, he was actually let go over misappropriations of the drug fund. The DA & TBI was called in as soon as the mayor took office. He was let go before the findings from the state, but this guy doesn't have a chance of winning.
