Another Democratic Mayor Getting Arrested, Charged With Bribery

From the Hartford Courant:
Mayor Eddie A. Perez will be arrested on bribery charges at a state police barracks Tuesday morning, the result of a 15-month grand jury investigation into possible corruption at Hartford City Hall.

Perez and his attorney, Hubert J. Santos, said Monday that they believe the charges are related to $20,000 in kitchen and bathroom renovations done on the Hartford mayor's home by contractor Carlos Costa.
Sometimes it seems that power and greed can not be separated.
