Melton RIP

A leading contender for the title of “America’s worst mayor,” Frank Melton of Jackson, died last night after losing his chance at a second term in office in the Democratic primary. I’ve said before—and have been proven wrong—that I thought Melton’s career as mayor was over, but his passing would seem to seal the deal once and for all.

It’s really a sad end for someone who was once almost a folk hero here. I think once he got in office his passion just completely over-ruled his brain. I will say this for Frank – he never got slimy like so many politicians do. Crazy, yes, but slimy? no.
