Lets get all the crooks out. Three down, four to go. From the Sun-Sentinel-
County Commissioner Mary McCarty resigned today and said she plans to plead guilty to honest services fraud.Here is a link to McCarty's resignation letter.
McCarty becomes the third county commissioner in recent years to resign as a result of corruption charges.
In her resignation letter, McCarty said she accepted free and discounted hotel rooms and services. She also said she failed to recuse herself from bond issues that benefited her husband's employers and "through them both my husband and me."
"I am disgusted with myself for, once again, placing the commission that I respect so much in an untenable situation," she wrote.
Commissioners Tony Masilotti and Warren Newell resigned in disgrace and are now serving time in federal prison. Two more commissioners are under investigation.
McCarty is certainly neither the first or last politician to use her elected office to enrich herself. I hope the judge throws the book at her. Maybe then local officials will stop this bull crap, but I won't get my hopes up.
