Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Crooked elected officialsNo orienteering today...instead, I'll write about crooks....
A federal jury convicted former Kansas City Councilwoman Saundra McFadden-Weaver today on mortgage fraud charges, finding that she intentionally misrepresented information on loan applications for a Lee’s Summit house.
That's the breaking news in the Kansas City Star.
I worked in the City Auditor's Office for 14+ years. We worked for the City Council. Saundra McFadden-Weaver is the second of the Councilmembers during my career who was convicted in federal court.
It is disappointing to see elected officials convicted of crimes. But, it is good to see crooked elected officials get caught. It is a bit like watching the Tour De France. You hate to see riders doping, but you're glad to see dopers caught.
