New Orleans – Mayor Mitch Landrieu, DemocratA death toll of 500 is horrific, but other places fare worse. What is interesting is the party affiliation of the various mayors in the worst crime cities in the US.
St. Louis – Mayor Francis G. Slay, Democrat
Detroit – Mayor Mike Duggan, Democrat
Baltimore – Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Democrat (and DNC leader)
Newark – Mayor Ras J. Baraka, Democrat
Is anyone starting to see a trend?
