It's the money

I don't like its undertones, but Nolan Finley's analysis of the mayoral scandal seems essentially right to me: "It's not the sex or the lies, it's the money."

The mayor's sex life is a private matter and many will excuse the lies he told to hide his affair. But the city has already paid a $9 million settlement to two police officers fired for investigating his behavior, and the Free Press revealed today that city funds may have paid for his trysts. The more money this scandal costs the city, the less chance Kwame has of weathering it.
