The Mayor's Purloined Purses

And now the case of the fox who couldn't jump the fence after getting caught in the henhouse.

Either way it doesn't look good for the mayor of Sunflower who was working at the Vicksburg Dilliards.

Mayor Mike Pembleton is accused of stealing $7,000 worth of designer purses.

Now it's bad enough when you are elected as the youngest mayor in the state and get caught three years later with your hand in the cookie jar.

But, remember Facebook folks are now out there ready to pounce on any politician who is not Dudley Do-right.

Here are some of the comments: "I hope those purses match his prison stripes", or "So sad, shoulda got heels to match those stripes," or "Did you not think they had cameras and a theft prevention team?"

Perhaps it's a good thing that Mike the Mayor passed up the cosmetic counter.

Aw, come on, man, that really would have had them talking!

That's my Point of View.
