And yet another! Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) member and Spring Valley Mayor Noramie Jasmin was arrested yesterday for allegedly accepting bribes from an undercover FBI agent, as part of a wide-ranging federal corruption probe that netted six New York state politicians. Meanwhile, we read, about another MAIG member: Gun-Toting Mayor Charged in Sex Intimidation Case. He has now been formally booked for a long list of charges, but they missed discharging a firearm inside city limits. And apparently demanding sex at gunpoint is only considered attempted rape if the perpetrator is demanding heterosexual sex. (If his victim had been female, I think this would have been prosecuted differently. Why the double standard for homosexuals?)
