Drunk Meth-Head Mayor in Missouri (Allegedly) Pisses Away Taxpayer Dollars Down at the Strip Club: But Give Me This Cat Any Day Over the Politicians in Washington...
His name is Nathan Grellner (pictured above), and he's the mayor of Valley Park, Missouri. And the Mayor's reportedly been very busy lately. Just not with his mayoral duties (link at bottom)...
I mean, this guy's been out there partying like a damn rock star (allegedly)! To wit:
-Last month the Good Mayor checked himself into the hospital, claiming exhaustion. Turns out, however, that he was reportedly there to be treated for methamphetamine abuse.
-Two days earlier, he was hospitalized after being arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. But he was allegedly able to escape police custody by fleeing the hospital when no one was lookin'!
-He also allegedly used the card to buy a $2,500 washer and dryer, a $575 Bosch shop vacumm, and also a "miter saw and hammer drill" to renovate his home.
-Then, apparently being famished by that flurry of activity, this Mayor McCheese allegedly ran up $2,000 more in charges at local restaurants, ranging from grub at McDonald's to $80 in eats down at the local TJ Wings joint.
But at least for the credit card business, the Mayor does have a defense. Or, at least, I guess you could call it that. He says he mixed up the city credit card with his own credit card (apparently over and over again) because he "was 'not in a state of mind' where he could distinguish between the two."
For his efforts, the Mayor is now facing a vote of no confidence -- which I find to be a bit short-sighted. Since oftentimes, the very BEST kind of politician is the one that you can't count on to do much of anything.
