Another day, another Democrat arrested

Last week, the democrat mayor of Baltimore was indicted.

Today, the Democrat mayor of Racine was arrested. I know the mayor of Racine is a non-partisan position, but he is a Democrat.

GARY BECKER, this city's mayor, remembers handing out fliers at local factory gates as a 10-year-old campaigner in Hubert H. Humphrey's ill-fated presidential bid in 1968. Mr. Becker, 48, is still a Democrat, but the factories and the traditional blue-collar jobs that filled the streets of his childhood are mostly gone, replaced by condominiums, restaurants and shops along Lake Michigan as well as an increasing number of service-sector jobs.

The mayor of Racine just won re-election in 2007. His term is not set to expire until 2011.

Racine Mayor Gary Becker was arrested Tuesday in a shopping mall outside the City of Milwaukee, said Ben Hughes, city administrator.

Becker was arrested on multiple felony counts, including solicitation of a minor, Hughes said.

Upon the arrest he was transported to the Kenosha County Jail, where he is being held on a $165,000 cash bond.The arrest was made by officials from the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigations.

The Racine Police Chief Kurt Wahlen called City Council President David Maack at about 12:20 a.m. this morning, Maack said. Wahlen indicated there was an ongoing investigation and Becker had been arrested for charges involving child pornography.

Oh good grief. What is it with these guys?
