The mayor of Racine WI got caught trying to party with a 14-year old girl (i.e., the FBI) that he met on the Internet. Now he can’t go to the inauguration, and the city had to cancel his $550/night room (highest price available at that hotel). And he might even lose his job.
Fortunately, this will not ruin The Coronation, because Becker apparently, according to the article, belongs to no political party whatsoever. This is excused by one mhertz because Mayor of Racine is a non-partisan office. Considering his destination, readers may draw their own conclusions.
