How Odd Is That?

Just today Dan Gilmor posted about the Mayor of San Jose being arrested/indicted, with a possibility of jail time.

And, get this, it seems he hasn't even resigned yet.

According to this Mercury News article, Ron Gonzales was arrested on felony counts involving allegations of misconduct in office related to the Norcal scandal. He maintains his innocence.

I don't know whether he is innocent or guilty, but IF he is guilty, it is good to hear that politicians are not exempt from the law.

Gilmor observes that Gonzales is almost done his turn, so the court case could theoretically stretch until he is out of office anyways. Gilmor also hints that, while maintaining a general reputation for clean operations, the Sillicon Valley may see more of this in the future.
