Mayor of San Gabriel, CA Cuts Out the Middleman

From the Washington Examiner:

A suburban Southern California mayor has resigned days after his arrest for a purse-snatching and wild ride through streets with a woman clinging to his sport utility vehicle.

San Gabriel Mayor Albert Y.M. Huang says in an e-mail Tuesday to The Associated Press that he’s confident his reputation will be restored but decided to resign because of overwhelming media attention.

Mr. Huang, who is a Democrat, may have just stumbled on an exciting new form of revenue enhancement.                                                                                                                                                        
Instead of letting the Bush tax cuts expire, the Democrats could simply roam the streets and snatch purses and wallets from the taxpayers.
If they need tips on how to successfully engage in this activity, I’m sure that there are any number of expert muggers among their constituents who can be consulted.
Fortunately, there does not seem to have been any sexual assault involved in this case.
That would have been an excessively literal expression of what the Democrats have been metaphorically doing to the country.
