Its hard out here for a politician!
The past few weeks I started hearing some strange rumors at my job about a certain Sheriff in this area of the country from some pretty credible people. By the way its not a Sheriff in Tennessee. Anyway, the rumor was that this Sheriff was arrested in Minnesota two weeks ago after he went to meet a 14 year old girl for sex and it went on to claim that he was back home but he was wearing an ankle bracelet that was monitoring his activities. Well I saw this particular Sheriff over the weekend at a dinner and he was NOT wearing a bracelet on his ankle or his arms. It turned out he was in Minnesota but he revealed at this dinner that his wife has breast cancer and he took her to the Mayo Clinic up there to see a specialist. Politics can be a mean business sometimes folks. Just ask Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford. He hasnt even went to trial yet but everyone from Patrick Cooper to Richard Arrington are already preparing to run in the special election early next year for the Mayor's post. There are some serious rumors out there though that Mayor Langford was diagnosed with prostate cancer last month. Hopefully thats not the case.
