'This Isn't Toronto': Florida Sheriff Arrests Mayor For Selling Drugs

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/florida-sheriff-charges-local-mayor-with-drug-possession-says-this-isn-t-toronto

A sheriff in Florida charged and arrested Hampton Mayor Barry Layne Moore with selling drugs this week, explaining that Bradford County "isn't Toronto," the Associated Press reported....

Moore, 51, is charged with possessing and selling Oxycodone and is currently being held on $45,000 bail.

“This isn’t Toronto,” Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith said in a statement. "We will not tolerate illegal drug activity in my jurisdiction by anyone to include our elected officials."

Moore is not the only Florida politician to be busted for drug use recently. Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in November and is currently in rehab.




I can't seem to find anything that would indicate Mayor Moore's party affiliation. Hmmm...

2. From the Toronto Sun.....this mayor

has been in trouble before.


As an aside. Sure seems like a large bond.

...Moore, 51, is charged with possession of a Schedule I or II drug and selling a schedule I or II drug. He has yet to post the $45,000 bail a judge imposed.

This isn’t the first time cops have arrested Moore.

According to police records, Moore was arrested on a battery charge in Oct. 2012 and a probation violation last December.

Smith was optimistic the long-arm of the law may one day catch up with Toronto’s mayor.

“You give a guy enough rope, they’ll hang themselves,” he said.

6. Many mayoral races don't put party on the ballot and if someone doesn't have

party ties or a previous election it may be unknown or undeclared.
