Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield's reelection campaign hasn't gotten off to a very good start. Last year Mayor Winfield's former chief of staff filed a lawsuit against him and the City of Vicksburg alleging she was sexually harassed by Winfield.
Now, on the same day Winfield officially qualified to run for a second term, the FBI arrested him for allegedly soliciting and accepting bribes from an FBI informant. Ironically four years ago Winfield's campaign slogan was, "Vicksburg is not for sale."
Unfortunately Winfield is not the first or will he be the last elected official to not live up to their campaign slogan.
